Gervais proved as controversial as ever at this year’s ceremony. His style received a mixed reaction from the celebrity audience. Fey and Poehler have received a warmer reception during they hosted the event. Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said that there is no doubt that Tina and Amy’s comedic chemistry is infectious. She added that they can't wait to see the dynamic duo return to the Golden Globes stage.
Ricky Gervais hosted the 77th Annual Golden Globes Awards. Gervais has long been known for his harsh and unforgiving humour. Gervais sparked controversy at the Golden Globes award as he made a pointed remark about the death of alleged paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. While talking about Netflix series Afterlife he said that it is a show about a man who wants to kill himself and because season two is on the way so he didn't kill himself, just like Jeffrey Epstein. The audience gasped and didn't know how to react, however, Tom Hank's reaction was considered most hilarious by many internet users.
