Ricky Gervais is only celebrating the Oscars the way he can – by trolling them.
The 59-year-old comedian went on Twitter on Sunday to share his now infamous 2020 Golden Globes monologue, toasting the Oscars, Felicity Huffman’s imprisonment, and the “perverts” in the audience that journalist Ronan Farrow would likely investigate.
“It’s the Oscars tonight! I wasn’t invited. It was something What did I say? “Gervais tweeted with a laughing emoji.
In last year’s Globes monologue, the native of England blew up Hollywood and spared absolutely no one.
“Leonardo DiCaprio was there for the premiere and in the end his date was too old for him,” he said, coming across the length of “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” and DiCaprio’s preference for younger women. “Even Prince Andrew says, ‘Come on, mate, you’re almost 50.”
Gervais also mentioned convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his prison cell in 2019 for an alleged suicide while on the Netflix Show “After Life” discussed.
“In the end he actually didn’t kill himself,” said Gervais of the main character of the series. “Just like Jeffrey Epstein.”
“Shut up, shut up, Keep your mouth shut. I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care, “he said to the shocked crowd.
Gervais later admitted that there was a joke he hadn’t wished for in the past that was focused on Tim Allen at the 2011 Golden Globes.
On that show, Allen, 67, presented an award to Tom Hanks, and Gervais introduced it by saying, “The first [host] is an actor, producer, writer and director, whose films grossed over $ 3.5 billion at the box office. The other is Tim Allen. “
” I didn’t want Tim Allen to think, “Oh, this was written for me,” said he. “‘Why me?’ Well, because you stood next to Tom Hanks. “
