Ricky Gervais made lots of enemies among famous and powerful of show business by lecturing them on how insignificant their opinions are to the rest of the population, specifically those of us chained to reality.
On the other hand, “we the people” loved it…
USA Today described Ricky’s performance as:
Lackluster, lazy parade of jokes.
Decide for yourself. Watch the video.

If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech,” Gervais said on the ceremony aired by NBC. “You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and f**k off, OK?Ricky Gervais
From Gervais’ monologue at Golden Globe awards.
Gervais is making a killing on social media. By explaining to the lords of self-importance, that very few people give a damn about what Hollywood aristocracy believes is the proper approach to life, he became a hero to “regular” people.
As the time of this post, the video of Gervais’ speech had been viewed:
- On YouTube by:
10.4 million viewers. (All other clips from the event combined — a little over 5 million). Number 1 On Trending.
- On Twitter by:
9.6 million users. ( All other clips from the event combined — a little over 4 million)
The next day, reacting to the spectacular recognition of his performance, Ricky tweeted:
The last thought.
The funniest part about all the jokes was that he wasn’t joking. He was stating facts. One fact after another and then the reactions of all those super-important Hollywood greats to what Ricky Gervais was saying, worked amazingly as punchlines to his statements creating brutally funny jokes.
