NTAs: Ricky Gervais joke show is ‘endless’

Ricky Gervais has condemned the Oscars for giving out expensive gift bags and ignoring poor people.

The 60-year-old comedian, who has never hosted the Oscars but has presented the Golden Globes five times, responded to a fan who suggested it would be better if Ricky hosted.

Sharing a clip of his opening monologue at the 2020 Golden Globes, which included jokes about Prince Andrew, Judi Dench and the movie Cats, they wrote: “RT if you wish @rickygervais hosted the #Oscars tonight.”

Ricky was quick to respond to the tweet, targeting the Oscars and their incredibly expensive gift bags being given out to nominees while imagining what his opening monologue would sound like.

Ricky last hosted the Golden Globes in 2020



“I would start with ‘Hello.’ I hope this show helps cheer up regular viewers at home,” the After Life star and creator began.

“For example, if you’re unemployed, you can take comfort in the fact that even if you had a job, your salary probably wouldn’t be as high as the goodie bag all the actors just got,” he fired.

Ricky continued his jibe as he then lobbied at the Oscars for ignoring poor people with their lavish ceremony.

He said he addressed the poverty gap in his scathing monologue



“I’m proud to announce that this is the most diverse and progressive Academy Awards ever. When I look outside I see people from all walks of life. Every population under the sun. Except for poor people, of course. F**k her,” he added.

He was applauded for his comments and many of his fans asked him to return to hosting.

“He should be doing every awards show, their viewership would skyrocket,” one tweeted.

“I would actually watch it again if he were the host. I haven’t seen it in years,” added another.

His risqué jokes left celebrities in the audience at the Golden Globes stunned

“If Ricky were the host, I would be lying on my couch and counting down. I’m happy to see him at this awards ceremony. Would be EPIC!!!!!!!!” one wrote.

This year’s Oscars goody bags are worth a whopping $140,000 and include a three-night all-inclusive stay at Turin Castle in Scotland worth $50,000.

There’s also a four-night stay at the Golden Door Resort Spa in San Diego worth $15,600 and liposuction treatments worth $12,000, as well as cosmetic procedures including chemical peels worth $10,000.
