Ricky Gervais Ends Golden Globes By Thanking God For Making Him An Atheist

Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes tonight and was fearless in his searing wit and, at times, mean-spirited jabs at the Hollywood elite. After setting the tone with a bitterly hilarious monologue, Gervais continued to jab at upcoming presenters in a stunningly unpleasant, uncomfortable and yet entertaining way. At one point in the show, the Twittersphere openly wondered if he’d been fired mid-show after he’d disappeared from the stage for what seemed like an eternity. He did return to close the show, and went out with a bang, saying “I want to thank God for making me an atheist.”
