(Fox News) The biggest stars in TV and film gathered in Beverly Hills, Calif. in the hopes of kicking off the 2020 awards season with a highly coveted Golden Globe award as notoriously controversial host Ricky Gervais wasted no time laying into the Hollywood elite vying for a big win.
Stars from films like “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “Rocketman” and “The Irishman” as well as shows like “Big Little Lies,” “The Crown” and “Barry” were in attendance but the comedian and host was undeterred by the many famous faces staring back at him.
He called out the many stars in the room for their relationship to large corporations like Apple, Amazon and Disney.
“Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing made by a company that runs sweatshops in China,” he said.” So you say you’re ‘woke’, but the companies you work for, Apple, Amazon, Disney… If ISIS had a streaming service you would be calling your agents.”
Gervais then mocked the stars in attendance for their relation to the late sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Gervais declared that Epstein didn’t kill himself, prompting groans from the crowd.
“Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care.”
Gervais concluded his scathing monologue by warning the celebrities not to make any political or “woke” statements when accepting their awards.
