Gervais jokingly called Joe Pesci “Baby Yoda” in his opening run of jokes while noting all the star power in the room.

“This table alone: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Baby Yoda — oh, that’s Joe Pesci, sorry,” Gervais said. “I love you, man, don’t have me whacked.”

The first of three instantly iconic reactions from Tom Hanks came when Gervais made a joke about Felicity Huffman, who was recently imprisoned.

“I came here in a limo tonight, and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman,” Gervais began. When the audience groaned in response, he added that “it’s her daughter I feel sorry for.”

That joke elicited this face from Hanks:

A couple of minutes later, the camera made another quick cut to Hanks after Gervais pointed out the lack of diverse nominees.

“Many people of color were snubbed in major categories,” Gervais said. “Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about that — the Hollywood Foreign Press are all very, very racist.”

Hanks sat mouth open for several seconds after that one.

The last of the Tom Hanks reactions came toward the end of the monologue when Gervais lambasted the audience as a whole.

“If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech,” Gervais said. “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, right? Come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God, and f— off.”

Hanks grimaced and looked down at the table.

Funny funny news ‘Parasite’ writer and director Bong Joon-ho gave a short but memorable speech after winning best foreign film

The South Korean filmmaker made a wonderfully succinct point in his speech.

“Wow, amazing. Unbelievable,” he said, before telling the audience that he brought a translator on stage since he’s a foreign-language filmmaker. Then he spoke in Korean, and his translator, Sharon Choi, repeated the sentence in English.

“Once you overcome the one-inch-tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films,” Choi said.

A video of the brief speech that was shared on Twitter by Variety had 5 million views in less than a day.

Funny funny news Brian Cox celebrated his win by kissing his ‘Succession’ costar Kieran Culkin, which tied in perfectly with the HBO show’s best meme

For those outside of the loop on this one, you have to know that Cox plays a formidable patriarch named Logan Roy on “Succession.” Logan has four children, one of whom is played by Culkin. The show follows a twisty, dark narrative where each of Logan’s kids is constantly vying for his approval and affection.

Last year, the actor/writer/comedian Demi Adejuyigbe created a parody video where he sang invented lyrics to go along with the show’s theme song.

“All the rich white folk are going to argue, and then whoever’s best is going to win a kiss from daddy,” Adejuyigbe sings. 

The song builds to a crescendo of “WHO WILL GET THE KISS FROM DAD-DY!”

So when Cox planted a smooch on Culkin to celebrate his win for best actor in a drama series, “Succession” fans all cheered at the sight of a “kiss from daddy” being awarded.

After the meme took off, Adejuyigbe chimed back in to joke that his “Succession” video “was a mistake.”

—demi adejuyigbe (@electrolemon) January 6, 2020

“An absolutely haunting combination of words that will forever float my way during succession-related events,” he wrote. “I will never kiss again and i recognize no fathers.”

While accepting the award for best actor in a supporting role in a motion picture, Pitt gave a special thank you to his friend and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” costar.

“I also have to thank my partner in crime, LDC,” Pitt said.

This nickname was news to the world and was instantly cemented as one of the coolest callouts of the awards.

Funny funny news Phoenix’s acceptance speech was an incoherent jumble thanks to the frequent bleeps of swear words

Once he made it onto the stage, Phoenix proceeded to deliver a confusing thank you.

He began by thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press Association “for recognizing and acknowledging the link between animal agriculture and climate change.” (The dinner served that evening was entirely plant-based.) Phoenix, who is vegan, said it was a “bold move” that sent a “powerful message.”

Then he addressed his fellow nominees. “We all know there’s no,” Phoenix began, but then the audio went silent. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Phoenix said that “there’s no f—ing competition between us.”

Phoenix was veering from topic to topic with stutters and long pauses. Sometimes the pauses were simply due to the censorship of his curse words, but other times he was just hesitating.

Later, his speech was again edited on live TV when he said that “contrary to popular belief, I don’t want to rock the boat — but the boat is f—ing rocked.”

Phoenix also said he was “too intimated” to reach out to some of the stars in the room, calling out “Christian” specifically, which many took to mean Christian Bale.

He appeared to have let out another curse word when addressing his girlfriend, Rooney Mara. That section of his speech was silent aside from him saying, “Um, Rooney, I love you,” and looking lovingly at her in the crowd.

Phoenix was eventually played off the stage, right as he turned to address the audience of wealthy Hollywood stars and creators.

“Together hopefully we can be unified and actually make some changes,” Phoenix said. “It’s great to vote, but sometimes we have to take that responsibility on ourselves and make changes and sacrifices in our own lives. And I hope that we can do that. We don’t have to take private jets to Palm Springs for the awards sometimes or back. Please.”

The music kicked in, so Phoenix wrapped up by saying he was grateful and thanking the audience one last time.

Gervais came out to end the show with one final “f— off.”
