I don’t know anything at all about this award but the remarks of this year’s host amused me.
Gervais slammed actors for calling themselves “woke” while taking money from Apple, Amazon and Disney, who use slave labor.
“If ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent,” joked Gervais.
“If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. 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 fuck off,” he added.
Will Gervais be invited back again after this? Unlikely.
