     Bleeps happen. Especially during live awards shows. But they usually result from expletives that have slipped from the mouths of winners — out of excitement, passion, even anger. Not during Sunday night’s Golden Globes, when the host Ricky Gervais, never one to bite his tongue, was bleeped twice by NBC during his prepared monologue.

     First came a comment about Judi Dench’s defense of the panned film “Cats,” which she stars in. (Even Gervais hesitated at first, saying “I can’t do this next joke.”) “It was the role she was born to play,” Gervais said, “because she loves nothing better than plunking herself down on the carpet, lifting her leg and licking her own —.” 

In the audience, Gwyneth Paltrow’s jaw dropped.

 

     Sunday night was the fifth time Gervais, a British comedian known for his unfiltered style of cringey comedy and brazen digs, has hosted the Golden Globes.

    “You’ll be pleased to know that this is the last time I’m hosting the Golden Globe Awards,” he said Sunday. “I don’t care anymore. I never did.”

     There were very many well made movies this past year but here is a list of the biggest awards won this year. 

  • Best Motion Picture, Drama: “1917”
  • Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood”
  • Best Director, Motion Picture: Sam Mendes, “1917”
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama: Renée Zellweger, “Judy”
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: Awkwafina, “The Farewell”
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture: Laura Dern, “Marriage Story”
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama: Joaquin Phoenix, “Joker”
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy:Taron Egerton, “Rocketman”

     With the Oscars coming soon it will be interesting to see how they rate these movies vs the Golden Globes Panel.
