The Golden Globes 2020, this year was hosted again by the controversial comedian Ricky Gervais, he returned to the stage after a four-year of absence. And just as his appearances at the previous Golden Globes stage, this year was no different. Ricky took a jab at some of the biggest celebrities present at the event and also made fun of himself, some of the best and the most awkward moments came from his monologues.
He went on to talk about Hollywood's hypocrisy when it comes to signing shows and movies, he went on to say, 'If ISIS were to start its streaming service, you would get in touch with your agent.' He also made remakers about actors getting political during speeches, 'So if you do win an award tonight, don't use it as a political 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. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and f**k off. OK?" as reported by Hollywoodreporter.com
The Office, star and creator also took shots at Felicity Huffman and Jeffrey Epstein. Many celebrities didn't enjoy the jokes and the new gifs of Twitter are proof, however, actor Leonardo DiCaprio took the flack openly, Ricky commented on the age difference between Leo and his 22-year-old girlfriend Camila Morrone. But Tom Hanks had the best response to Ricky's opening, which is now a cherished moment on social media, and Gwyneth Paltrow had almost lost it.
As for the winners' highlights, some of the biggest surprises were, Fleabag winning the Best Comedy Show, after Obama listing it has his favourite show (comedy).

Awkwafina's Golden Globes acceptance speech was somewhat of callback to the Asian culture. She said, "If I fall upon hard times I can sell this. I've never been to the Golden Globes. I'm here now and it's this, and it's great." She dedicated the award to her father: I told you I'd get a job, dad."
One of the shocking speeches were, Joaquin Phoenix's acceptance speech, he went on to say, "We all know there's no f**king competition between us. It's a thing that's created to sell advertisements for the TV shows,". And on the other hand, Williams had the most beloved speech of all times, "Women, please vote in your own self-interests. It's what men have been doing for years, which is why the world looks so much like them. Don't forget: we are the largest voting body in this country. Let's make it look more like us." she added.
