Ricky Gervais goes wild in Golden Globes 2020 opening monologue

Ricky Gervais opened the 2020 Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel letting the world know he doesn’t care — several times. He left no holds barred in his final hosting moment, cursing up a storm.

“I don’t care anymore, I never did,” the 58-year-old said of his gig. “Remember they’re just jokes, we’re all gonna die soon and there’s no sequel.”

No celebrity was safe from Gervais’ jokes, even Judi Dench. Gervais had to stop mid-monologue before delivering his foul-mouthed quip about Dench’s role in the movie “Cats.”

“She loves nothing better than plunking herself down on the carpet, lifting her leg and licking her [bleeped],” which got a huge laugh from Gwyneth Paltrow.

Fellow co-star James Corden was the butt of the “Cats” joke too. “The world got to see James Corden as a fat pussy, he was also in the movie ‘Cats,’ but no one saw that,” he said. “The reviews I saw one that said this is the worst thing to happen to cats since dogs.”

Gervais was also less than kind to Martin Scorsese, making fun of the director for his feud with the Marvel franchise, which he compared to a theme park, as well as his height.

“I don’t know what he’s doing at theme parks,” he said. “He’s not big enough to go on the rides.”

Gervais also touched on the college admissions scandal in his monologue. “I came in a limo tonight and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman,” he said to the crowd, which gasped.

Nothing was too taboo for Gervais who also took a jab at Leonardo DiCaprio, star of 2-hour and 40 minutes-long “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood.”

“Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and by the end his date was too old for him,” he said. “Even Prince Andrew is like come on mate you’re nearly 50.”

Gervais also brought up Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his jail cell in August from an alleged suicide. “Shut up I know he’s your friend but I don’t care,” he said.
