The Golden Globes are on tonight, and honestly, I had no idea…
Ever since Ricky Gervais’ incredible opening monologue in 2020, it’s just been hard to get excited for these award shows, and with the news about Jeffrey Epstein dropping recently, I just find myself rewatching it over and over to watch these Hollywood bozos squirm in the crowd as he calls them out. It brings me insane amounts of joy, even four years later.
In case you need a refresher:
I think I speak for everyone when I say we need Ricky Gervais to host the Golden Globes again! Never forget his epic 2020 opening monologue. pic.twitter.com/Uf36q3A2O8
This year however, Jo Koy is hosting and let’s just say it’s been rather uneventful…
That is, until Jim Gaffigan got on stage to present the award for Best Stand Up Comedian on Television, which ironically, Ricky Gervais won. Not surprisingly, he wasn’t there to accept and even said he wouldn’t win before the show started:
I'm nominated for another Golden Globe tonight. This time for my Netflix special #Armageddon. Won't win, but it's nice to still be up there in the mix, flying the flag. pic.twitter.com/ICi0KSW6Zr
But Jim couldn’t pass up an opportunity to make Epstein’s friends in the crowd squirm a little more. During Gaffigan’s intro to the category, he gave us a glimpse of why he should perhaps be hosting the show:
“I can’t even believe I’m in the entertainment industry. It’s so unlikely. I’m from a small town in Indiana. I’m not a pedophile…
I don’t know if that’s a new category here, but…”
