Ricky Gervais eviscerates pretty much everyone in opening monologue at the Golden Globes

"Remember, they're just jokes. We're all going to die soon, and there's no sequel."

Comedian Ricky Gervais kicked off the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday evening with a joke-filled monologue.

He announced that it was his fifth and final time presenting the awards, and seemed to use it as a licence to go off on pretty much everyone.

"I mean, Kevin Hart was fired from the Oscars because of some offensive tweets," Gervais said.

"Luckily, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association can hardly speak English and they have no idea what Twitter is. Remember, they're just jokes. We're all going to die soon, and there's no sequel."

Gervais proceeded to target Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, Leonardo di Caprio, Judi Dench and James Corden amongst others as well as referencing Jeffrey Epstein.

He also took shots at the excessive lengths of victory speeches and the the proclivity of people to use them as platforms for something entirely different.

"If you win an award tonight, don't use it as a platform to make a political speech. 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," Gervais said.

"So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent, and your god, and fuck off."
