Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais said earlier that all the barbs he makes about celebrities while hosting award shows are ‘non-personal’.
But James Corden, 41, should have pretty thick skin while watching the event being held at home at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Sunday evening.
Ricky, 58, said: “The world saw James Corden as a big p ****. He was also in the movie Cats, but nobody saw that. “
Golden Globes 2020: Host Ricky Gervais labeled James Corden as a big p **** and declined his role in Cats during an acid bite in the Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday
Both the critics and the audience have mocked the musical turn movie. It has a 21 percent score on Rotten Tomato and thousands of inspiring memes despite the cast with all the stars.
Gervais continued with an explosive, filled joke about Judi Dench, who also played in the film.
“Dame Judi Dench defended the film and said it was the role in which she was born, because she wants nothing more than to throw herself on the carpet, lift her leg and lick her a ***.”
It is the fifth time that Gervais has held the gala, after having previously led the show from 2010 to 2012 and again in 2016.
Ricky, 58, said: “The world saw James Corden as a big p ****. He was also in the movie Cats, but nobody saw that “
The 58-year-old British comedian sat down for a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter while discussing the difficulty of balancing comedy with political correctness and Hollywood egos.
When asked if he had certain goals for this year’s jokes, the comic insisted that he would not appeal to any star.
“I don’t think this time [any] are individuals [in the firing line],’ he said. “I think I’m going after the general community.”
He told me Independent back in March: ‘They get it. I hope they know I have nothing against them.
“I met them all, Kevin gave permission to use a photo. James made an impression of me in his show, I didn’t record it personally, it’s just fun. “
Meow! Gervais continued with an explosive, filled joke about Judi Dench, who also played in the film
However, Corden was not mentioned when Ricky spoke to his favorite late night hosts in an interview The Hollywood Reporter.
He said: I love Jimmy Kimmel, I love him and he is brave. I like that he becomes personal and I love him. I think Conan is a genius, he is a writer – again a very nice guy.
“I love Jon Stewart. I thought he should be president, that’s how much I love Jon Stewart. I think it’s great. I think Seth [Meyers] is really smart and uncompromising and does it at 12.30 at night, and he does great.
Everyone but him: Corden was not mentioned when Ricky spoke about his favorite late night hosts in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter
‘Colbert is great, every time I go on we talk about theology, which is great in a late-night chat show when you have to play a game of ping-pong underwater.
“I love Jimmy Fallon, he is just pure joy, it’s nice to be. I was in the great Leno Letterman [time]. I loved Letterman because I think it was the most iconic, so I couldn’t believe my luck. I’ve done that 25 times. I remember the first time I did it, I thought, “Oh, I broke America.” No you don’t! (Laughs)
In the meantime, it was a successful night for the stars of Hollywood.
It is 16 years ago that Renee Zellweger came home with a Golden Globe and it is even longer for Brad Pitt who last won in 1996.
But the two veteran stars turned their fortunes into yet another great Hollywood comeback story.
Comeback kids: Renee Zellweger (left) and Brad Pitt both ended dry periods during the Golden Globe Awards that were held on Sunday evening during the event
The 56-year-old actor earned the best actor in a supporting role in every movie at the star-studded event held at the Beverly Hills Hilton Sunday night before his movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood received the highest honor Best Motion Picture – Musical or comedy.
Zellweger, 50, then won for her role in Judy Garland biopic Judy in one of the most controversial categories of the night: best actress in a film drama.
She last won Best Performance by an actress in a supporting role in a film for Cold Mountain in 2004, while it was 24 years ago that Pitt won the best performance by an actor in a supporting role in a film for his work in Twelve Monkeys.
Zellweger faced tough competition, including: Cynthia Erivo (Harriet), Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women) and Charlize Theron (Bombshell).
In her speech, she showed respect for her fellow nominees while saying, “Well, hello everyone.” It’s nice to see you. You all look pretty good, 17 years later. Thank you to HFPA for inviting me back for the family reunion, especially with all these extraordinary ladies this year.
Humble: Tarantino also won the best scenario earlier that evening
“Your work moves me and I have been cheering from theater seats for a long time.”
Judy follows the legendary performer Judy Garland after arriving in London in the winter of 1968 to perform a series of sold-out concerts.
During his speech, Brad got the attention of the public because he also paid tribute to his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio while he made a colossal joke, as he said: “I also have to thank my partner in crime, LDC … he is an all star, he is a gentleman. I wouldn’t be here without you, man. Thank you. Yet I would have shared it smoothly. “
He concluded the nice acceptance speech with a sweet humanitarian message by saying: ‘Hey, if you see a chance to be nice to someone tomorrow, take it. I think we all need it. ”
Pitt beat A-list talent, including: Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood), Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes), Al Pacino (The Irishman) and Joe Pesci (The Irishman).
His grand prize was one of three earned by Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
Producer David Heyman accepted the prize when he revealed that director and writer Quentin Tarantino told him that he would represent the cast and crew on the big stage as he said: ‘Quentin is nothing like unpredictable. A few seconds ago he told me that I was going to speak. “
Inspired: Joaquin Phoenix earned the best actor in a movie – drama for his role in the highest register and earned the very last R-movie: Joker
Earlier in the evening Tarantino also won the best scenario.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood tells the story of TV star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his years of stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt), who make their way into an industry that they hardly recognize anymore.
Joaquin Phoenix earned the best actor in a movie – drama for his role in the highest box office with an R-rating movie of all time: Joker.
The 45-year-old actor showed that he still has a penchant for mischief while occupying the censors with his ridiculous acceptance speech that began: “Contrary to popular belief, I don’t want to rock the boat. But the boat is damn shaky! “
He continued to deal with the fires in Australia and the ongoing climate crisis, urging Hollywood to do better, such as “don’t take private persons to Palm Springs.”
Phoenix was choked when he called fiancée Rooney Mara and those present when he finished his speech: “Rooney, I love you. I am so grateful for this night and all of you. Thank you.’
Flower power: Laura Dern was also a big winner, as she won the best actress in a supporting role in every film for her role in Netflix’s A Marriage Story
Of course Joker follows mentally disturbed comedian Arthur Fleck who is abused by society and leads him into a downward spiral with the ultimate path to become his super villain alter-ego.
The war epic of Sam Mendes from 1917 was the top winner in the dramatic film categories, because it earned the last prize of the night: Best Motion Picture – Drama.
The film that follows two young British soldiers during the First World War who were given an impossible mission, defeated critically acclaimed films: The Irishman, Marriage Story, Joker and The Two Popes.
The British filmmaker Mendes, 53, also won the best director film earlier in the night.
Her is everything: Phoebe Waller-Bridge was on stage at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday when she accepted the best television series – musical or comedy for Fleabag
Phoebe Waller-Bridge was also one of the biggest winners of the evening at the end of television because she took home two top prizes for Fleabag.
When former US President Barack Obama recently put the BBC / Amazon show on his list of favorite movies and music from 2019, the 34-year-old British star made a hilarious joke for fans while accepting one of the best awards of the night; Best television series – musical or comedy.
During her speech, she referred to a spicy scene from the first season of the groundbreaking series in which her character masturbated to Obama and gave a keynote speech to Parliament in 2011.
She said: “I personally want to thank Obama for putting us on his list, and as some of you may know, he has always been on mine. And if you don’t understand that joke, watch Fleabag season one really, really fast! Thank you very much.’
Delightful in red: it was a great evening for the Fleabag family, as Olivia Colman achieved the best performance of an actress in a television series – Drama for the crown
It was another milestone for the star, as Waller-Bridge also earned the best performance of an actress in a television series – musical or comedy for the comedy series.
During that speech, the star paid tribute to co-star Andrew Scott when she first reached the stage to accept her prize.
After celebrating with a kiss on the cheek during the announcement, the writer, director and actress dedicated the victory to Scott while joking that the 43-year-old Irish actor; “could have chemistry with a pebble.”
She said: ‘Oh my god. Thanks a lot to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, it’s really heavy and cool.
“This really comes down to Andrew Scott, really because that man, there was a lot of talk about the chemistry between us in the show, but he could have chemistry with a pebble and Id thought it was great to be Andrew’s pebble in this, thanks for it bringing so much fire to this season. ”
Dynamic duo: Jennifer Aniston (left) and Reese Witherspoon presented the first two prizes of the night
She faced stiff competition, including: Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Kirsten Dunst (About Becoming a God in Central Florida) and Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll).
Waller-Bridge portrays the titular character in the groundbreaking series – which she has adapted to an award-winning piece – because she follows a young woman trying to handle life in London while facing a recent tragedy.
It was a great evening for the Fleabag family, as Olivia Colman earned the best performance from an actress in a television series – Drama for The Crown.
The 45-year-old British actress – who portrays Queen Elizabeth II in the Netflix series – defeated tough competition, including Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer, Big Little Lies star Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon who both play the lead in The Morning Show .
She said, “In the past year, I have the feeling that I have lived someone else’s life and now I have the feeling that I am winning someone else’s prize.”
He is back: Ricky Gervais opened the show with his characteristic controversial comedy
Earlier in the evening, Russell Crowe was absent because he was announced as the winner of the Best Performance by an actor in a Limited Series of Motion Picture Made for Television award.
Then the 55-year-old actor was given the honor for his work to portray controversial Fox News executive Roger Ailes in the Showtime limited series The Loudest Voice.
However, he chose not to attend the gala while in Australia, where he lived most of his life, to help with the forest fires that devastated the country.
However, he sent a very pronounced statement about climate change that presenter Jennifer Aniston read.
It said: “Make no mistake. The tragedy that is taking place in Australia is based on climate change. We must act on the basis of science, move our global workforce to sustainable energy and respect our planet for the unique and amazing place it is. “
The forest fires in Australia have burned around 12.35 million hectares of land and destroyed more than 1,400 homes. The death toll has reached 24 people.
Crowe faced Sam Rockwell (Fosse / Verdon), Christopher Abbott (Catch-22), Jared Harris (Chernobyl) and Sacha Baron Cohen (The Spy).
In seven-part limited series, The Loudest Voice, Crowe portrayed the now deceased Ailes who founded Fox News and focuses on the decade in which he demonstrably became the actual leader of the Republican party and allegations of sexual harassment that eventually ended his career.
Follow-up was named Best television series – Drama.
The HBO series beat the competition of Big Little Lies, The Crown, Killing Eve and The Morning Show to earn the coveted honor at the annual ceremony.
Showrunner Jesse Armstrong by a number of cast members and crew of the show, but on behalf of the whole team, as he said, thanked: “Thank you very much, to the HFPA, to HBO for their enormous support.
“For everyone else working on the show, it’s a TV show and I’m here to represent us all, so if you’ve ever appeared on the call magazine or the titles of Succession, congratulations, we’ve won a Golden Globe. “
Stellan Skarsgård achieved the best performance from an actor in a supporting role in a series, limited series or film made for television for his work on the HBO limited series Chernobyl.
The 68-year-old Swedish actor cut his speech briefly when he paid tribute to the makeup artist who raised his eyebrows as quipped: “” Stellan, I’ve seen so many movies with you but I never remember your face. ” And I realized it was because I don’t have eyebrows, no one can see if I’m angry or surprised, it’s not like Colin Farrell. You can see if he is angry 20 miles away. So for this film, Daniel Park made a few eyebrows for me and … “
Ramy Yusef was the first to win the event when an actor in a television series – musical or comedy – gave him the best performance for his work in the Hulu Ramy series.
The first nominee joked that he was not only unrecognizable to everyone in the audience, but his mother wanted him to lose to Michael Douglas of The Kominsky Method, who was also shortlisted alongside Barry’s Bill Hader, Paul Rudd (Living With Yourself) ) and Ben Platt (The Politician).
