Ricky Gervais' Best Jokes From the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Ricky Gervais started the evening off with: "So…where was I?," addressing his controversial hosting duties at last year's Golden Globe Awards.

When Gervais was invited back to the Golden Globes this year, we were all waiting to see who he'd insult. Surprisingly, Ricky took the insults down a notch. While he started off strong, insulting Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Eddie Murphy, and Adam Sandler, Gervais didn't let as loose this year as he did at last year's Golden Globe Awards.

It might've had something to do with the fact that his stage time was limited. I think we saw more shots of Angelina Jolie's dress than we did of Ricky. Either way, he still managed to be a riot, and here are our favorite jokes of the night:

"The Golden Globes is to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton. A bit louder, a bit trashier, a bit drunker, and more easily bought."

On the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: "They're a non-profit organization. Just like NBC."

"And now, the man that will wear literally anything Tim Burton tells him to…Johnny Depp."


To Johnny Depp: "Have you seen 'The Tourist' yet?"

On Eddie Murphy resigning from the Oscars: "When a man who says yes to 'Norbit' says no to you, you're in trouble,"

"Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler between them played all the parts in 'The Help.' I cant believe they're not here, or maybe they are. They're masters of disguise."

"The only way [Justin Bieber] could impregnate a girl is if he were to borrow one of Martha Stewart's old turkey basters."

"What you didn't know about [Colin Firth] is that he's very racist…and I saw him punch a little blind kitten."
