Ricky Gervais made his triumphant return to the 73rd Golden Globe Awards to host for a third time — though perhaps triumphant isn’t the right word.
More than in previous years, Gervais seemed to be absent from large chunks of the show and the moments he was on stage weren’t necessarily comedic highlights of the night — though, at least he wasn’t as bad as Jonah Hill’s escapades as a bear. While Gervais did deliver some good zingers, there were also a few celebrities he didn’t see to have any good material for. That didn’t stop him, though.
Follow along as Zap2it recounts the comedian’s best and worst jokes of the night.
Worst: Mocking Hollywood’s favorite BFFs
Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer have had a pretty good year, so there's really not much to make fun of when it comes to them. That didn't stop Gervais for trying though, instead focusing on how silly it is that the two have become good friends over the last year. Because friendship is lame or something.
Best: Calling out Mel Gibson
Of course Gervais has jokes for Mel Gibson. How could he not? While it may have been one of the more awkward moments of the night, it was also one of the funniest.
Worst: Making jokes of a tragedy
Nothing says cutting edge comedy like jokes about Caitlyn Jenner. Beyond that, Gervais poking fun at the car accident Jenner was involved in that claimed a life seems over the line.
Best: The Golden Globes are worthless
Telling it like it is, Gervais wants celebrities to know that the trophies are "worthless." How does he know? He has three himself, one of which he keeps beside his bed for ... sexual purposes.
Worst: Kevin Hart and Ken Jeong are short, get it?
When bringing Kevin Hart and Ken Jeong on the stage. Gervais warned that Angelina Jolie might try to adopt them. You see, the two comedy actors are fairly short, so naturally they may be mistaken for children.
