Last night.

All of Ricky Gervais’ gags as host of the Golden Globes including the following:

“You say you’re woke but the companies you work for, unbelievable, Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service, you would call your agent, wouldn’t you?

So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, right?

You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.

So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god, and fuck off.”

In fairness.

The Golden Globe nominations are being have been announced…

Carlow actress Saoirse Ronan has been nominated for the category Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical of Comedy, for her role in Lady Bird.

Saoirse’s nomination was announced with a little difficulty by actress Alfre Woodward when she called her ‘Sheer-sa’ before correcting herself.

She did try and tell them, in fairness.

Meanwhile Kilkenny’s Cartoon Saloon’s The Breadwinner has also been nominated for Best Motion Picture (Animated).

And Martin McDonagh is up for Best Director in a Motion Picture with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Yay!
