Many were expecting it. After all, this was the fifth and 'final' time that comedian and actor Ricky Gervais would be hosting the annual Golden Globes award ceremony. But even when it's to be suspected, Gervais has the uncanny ability to make people cringe at the angles he pursues in his jokes.
Gervais joked several times that this would be his last time hosting the Globes. Who really knows, though. If it was the last time that he would be behind the podium, he certainly didn't hold anything back. Amongst the topics of his opening monologue and subsequent lines were the likes of James Corden, Felicity Huffman, Jeffrey Epstein, and the Hollywood elite, among others.
