Ricky Gervais Starts Golden Globes Off With Beer & Tons of Zingers

ricky gervais opening segment
Ricky Gervais started out the 2016 Golden Globes as one would expect: getting hammered while insulting everyone in the room. Genius!

The controversial host started by singling out Caitlyn Jenner – commenting on her highly-publicized transition and the fact that she does not help the “women are awful drivers” stereotype – and Jennifer Lawrence, who recently made headlines for demanding equal pay to that of her male co-stars. While Lawrence took the comments in stride, we have a feeling viewers will have a lot to say about Gervais’ string of “interesting” gay jokes.

Before the broadcast, Gervais was warned about pushing boundaries with his jokes and while on the red carpet revealed to Ryan Seacrest there were about 10 bits he was banned from doing at the show. Fingers crossed he lets them slide anyway.

Check out his hilariously raunchy monologue below.
