Continuing his pop shots at the entertainment industry, Ricky Gervais has a few choice words for actors and their acceptance speeches.
A well known atheist, Gervais slams Hollywood for thanking God when they've won an award. He puts his views into perspective with his closing speech at his Golden Globes skewering last year.
Gervais ended the show with the line, "Thank you to God that I'm an atheist."
To say a few eyebrows were raised is a HUGE understatement.
The comedian said the following about his religious rip:
Let's get this in perspective: They're the wealthiest, most privileged people in the world.Imagine if I had gone out there and said, 'We're all in the same gang. Aren't we brilliant? Us millionaires together.
It was a swipe at all those people who thank God because they won an award. How arrogant is that? There's war and famine and God's going, 'Know what Bullock? Write a speech. I'm not going to say anything, Sandra, but write a speech. That's all I'm saying
What does the searing Gervais have planned next?! We can't wait to find out Sunday!
