Golden Globes 2016: Winners, speeches and highlights

British comedian hosts the Golden Globes and has the crowd shocked by his remarks.

The British comedian, who is known for his opening monologues and blatant disregard for the celebrities in the audience, has returned as host for the awards which recognise the best in film and television.

Gervais ripped into the troubled Australian actor when introducing him to the celebrity crowd, saying it was awkward as Gervais went hard on Gibson at the Golden Globes back in 2010.

“I want to say something nice about Mel when he comes out ... OK here you go,” he began. “I’d rather have a drink with him in his hotel room tonight then Bill Cosby.”

Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his mansion in Pennsylvania in January 2004.

Gibson was quick to fire back and said: “I like seeing Ricky once every three years. It reminds me to get a colonoscopy.”

The British comedians opening of the show definetly set the mod for the event.

In under five minutes, the comedian skewered Jennifer Lawrence, Jeffrey Tambor and Caitlyn Jenner.

“I’ve changed,” Gervais insisted to the crowd. “Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously. Now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. She’s become a role model for trans people everywhere. Showing great bravery in breaking down stereotypes.

“She didn’t do a lot for women drivers. But you can’t have everything. Not at the same time,” he said in reference to Jenner’s involvement in a fatal car crash last year.

Talk then naturally turned to Jeffrey Tambor and his role as a transgender woman in Transparent.

“What an actor, what a role,” he praised the actor. “He has to put on all the women clothes and let people film him. That takes balls. I don’t know how he does it ... I’ve seen his balls — they’re huge and long.”

Next up was the Hollywood every girl Jennifer Lawrence and her essay on pay equality.

“There were marches on the street with teachers and nurses saying how the hell could a 25-year-old live on $58 million?” he jibed.

“I’m getting paid the same as Tina and Amy did last year ... there's two of them it’s not my fault they want to share the money.”

Gervais got into the spirit of the ceremony earlier this morning by posting one of his signature unflattering shirtless selfies before even getting dressed and heading to the awards. It came with the crude caption: “Better get dressed and offend some humourless c***s I suppose.”

Channing Tatum hit the stage to present the first award along with Jonah Hill, who embodied the bear from the Leonardo DiCaprio movie The Revenant.

Jamie Foxx hit the stage with Lily James to present the gong for Best Score in a Motion Picture, and Foxx got the winner a little muddled.

“The winner is Straight Outta Compton,” he said. “I’m sorry folks I made a mistake ...” It was actually The Hateful Eight.

Hollywood’s two favourite girlfriends stole the show while presenting at the Golden Globes.

Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence took to the stage to present some clips of their movies, and thought it best to introduce themselves.

“I’m JLaw,” Lawrence began. “And I am ASchu,” Schumer added.

“Amy, you can’t just give yourself a name — it has to come naturally,” Lawrence informed her. “What do people usually call you?”

“Usually they just call me c**t,” Schumer deadpanned.

Then she tried experimenting with “celebrity couples” nicknames — “like Ames-Tom-Hardy?” Schumer offered, before Lawrence told her she had to actually be in a relationship with the hunk. “Like Amy-all-the-Hemsworths?”

When the category of Best Actor in a Television Series rolled around, nominee Aziz Ansari summed up who everyone thought would win.

Perhaps the most surprising win of the night came when Lady Gaga’s name was read out — winning the gong for Best Performance in a Miniseries or Television Film for American Horror Story Hotel. Even Leonardo DiCaprio was a little surprised.

Denzel Washington has been honoured with the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award. “I lost my speech,” he said. “I’m speechless.”

The audience got to their feet when Leonardo DiCaprio was announced as the Best Actor in a drama for The Revenant. Picking up this gong is a good sign of his chances at the upcoming Academy Awards. “What an incredible honour — that meant a lot,” he told the audience.

It wasn’t the film’s only win of the night. It also took out the final award for Best Motion Picture — Drama.

But just because the last award had been handed out didn’t mean it was over for Ricky Gervais. He managed to get the last word while the credits rolled.

“From myself and Mel Gibson — shalom!”
