The reaction to Ricky Gervais’s raunchy opening monologue at the Golden Globes on Sunday night? Well, it can be summed up by Tom Hanks’s face here:

Gervais, hosting for the fifth time, repeatedly assured the audience he didn’t care about their gasps and shocked reactions to his most controversial jokes — after all, he said, it’s his last time hosting.

“Let’s have a laugh at your expense, shall we? Remember, they’re just jokes,” he advised the famous members of the audience. “We’re all gonna die soon, and there’s no sequel.”

Here are some of the most scathing lines — except for the vulgar digs about James Corden and Judi Dench as he skewered the disastrous “Cats,” which we aren’t allowed to repeat because this is a family newspaper.

Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in ... Hollywood” won three awards, while Sam Mendes’s “1917” earned best drama. Meantime, "The Irishman" was shut out. (The Washington Post)

Hollywood executives

“In this room are some of the most important TV and film executives in the world, people from every background. But they all have one thing in common: They’re all terrified of Ronan Farrow. He’s coming for you. He’s coming for you. Look, talking to all you perverts, it was a big year for pedophile movies. ‘Surviving R. Kelly.’ ‘Leaving Neverland.’ ‘The Two Popes.’ ”

Hollywood hypocrisy

“Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing — made by a company that runs sweatshops in China. You say you’re woke, but the companies you work for, I mean, unbelievable: Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent, wouldn’t you? So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, right? You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God, and [bleep].”

Jeffrey Epstein

“No one cares about movies anymore, no one goes to the cinema, no one really watches network TV. Everyone’s watching Netflix. This show should just be me coming out going, ‘Well done Netflix, you win everything, good night.’ But no, we’ve got to drag it out three hours. You could binge watch the entire first season of ‘After Life’ instead of watching this show. That’s a show about a man who wants to kill himself because his wife dies of cancer — and it’s still more fun than this. Spoiler alert, Season 2 is on the way, so in the end, he obviously didn’t kill himself — just like Jeffrey Epstein. (gasps) Shut up! I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care. You had to make your own way here on your own plane, didn’t you?”

Leonardo DiCaprio

“ ‘The Irishman’ was amazing … long, but amazing. It wasn’t the only epic movie. ‘Once Upon a Time in ... Hollywood’? Nearly three hours long. Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and by the end, his date was too old for him. Even Prince Andrew’s like, ‘Come on, Leo, mate, you’re nearly 50-something.’ ”

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association

“Kevin Hart was fired from the Oscars because of some offensive tweets. Hello? Lucky for me, the Hollywood Foreign Press can barely speak English and they have no idea what Twitter is. So I got offered this gig by fax.”

“Many talented people of color were snubbed in major categories. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about that: The Hollywood Foreign Press are all very, very racist. We were going to do an In Memoriam this year, but when I saw the list of people that died, it wasn’t diverse enough. It was mostly white people and I thought, ‘No. Not on my watch.’ ”

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy

“I came in a limo tonight and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman. No, shush. It’s her daughter I feel sorry for, okay? That must be the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to her. And her dad was in ‘Wild Hogs.’ ”

Martin Scorsese

“Martin Scorsese, the greatest living director, made the news for his controversial comments about the Marvel franchise. He said they’re not real cinema and they remind him of theme parks. I agree, although I don’t know what he’s doing hanging around theme parks. He’s not big enough to go on the rides.”
