Ricky Gervais' opening monologue at the Golden Globes was so on fire, we felt burnt

Ricky. Gervais.

Ricky Gervais truly doesn't give a shit about Hollywood and he wants you to know. In his short but sweet opening dialogue, the comedian impressively roasted and shocked most of the stars present at the event.

So much so that we even felt burnt.

The 58-year-old went from talking about how nobody watches films anymore to mentioning all of what he called the "paedophile movies" of the year, including "Surviving R. Kelly", "Leaving Neverland" and Netflix's "The Two Popes". This then led to a lot of awkward stares and actors feeling uncomfortable in their seats to which Ricky just kept repeating "I don't care".

He then stated that he in fact, never cared.

The Reading native also added that the licence plate of his limo for the event was made by Felicity Huffman as everyone in the audience tried to look away from the camera including Tom Hanks who was less than impressed.

Just please look at his face.

Ricky then went on to roast Leonardo DiCaprio for dating 20-year-olds stating that he is "nearly 50". He then made a joke about James Corden dressed as a cat for CATS and went on to make quite a vulgar statement about Dame Judi Dench - which you can watch for yourself below.

 

Oh and let's not forget that the After Life star called the Hollywood Foreign Press Association "racist", also mentioned that there wasn't enough diversity among the deaths of stars this year and then, to top it all off, made the remark that if "ISIS had a streaming service, you'd call your agent".

All in a day's work, Ricky?
