Last Sunday was the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and broadcasted live on NBC.The show was hosted by Ricky Gervais who made many laugh at his comical view, but sometimes made inappropriate remarks while sipping from a cup of beer.

During his monologue, Gervais addressed actors and actresses such as actor Jeffrey Tambor from the Amazon Prime Exclusive show: Transparent and actress Jennifer Lawrence on her campaign for equal treatment and pay of women.

“I’m going to try to be nice tonight,” stated Gervais, “and I’ll tell you why. The president of the Hollywood Foreign Press is here tonight and he said that if I say anything offensive, crass or resort to innuendo he will come out here personally and pull me off. So that was an offer I couldn’t refuse. Yes, that’s how low I’m willing to go. But at least Jeffery Tambor did it in a dress.”

Gervais frequently gave short speeches involving large amounts of innuendo, especially when he introduced Mel Gibson. Many of his comments was blurbed out due to being inappropriate.
