The 2016 Golden Globe Awards had a high percentage of vulgar language.
Host Ricky Gervais opened the ceremony with this greeting: "Shut up, you disgusting, pill-popping, sexual deviant scum."
Gervais then made a graphic reference to the genitalia of actor Jeffrey Tambor.
About the movie "Spotlight," Gervais said, “The Catholic Church are furious about the film, as it exposes the fact that 5 percent of all their priests have repeatedly molested children and been allowed to continue to work without punishment. Roman Polanski called it the best date movie ever.”
Gervais then talked about the things he does with the Golden Globes he keeps next to his bed. “To be clear, that was a joke about me shoving Golden Globes - that I've won - up my ass.”
Later in the show actor Jonah Hill presented while dressed as a bear. Several of his comments were blocked by NBC censors. "I'm a bear and honey is [censored] delicious!" Hill said. He continued to speak but his next sentence was almost fully censored. Hill then concluded, "There are some studio heads I wouldn't mind taking a swipe at later tonight! But don't be mad because don't forget I'm a bear! I don't [censored] care!"
During her presentation, comedian Amy Schumer used a vulgar term that refers to a part of the female anatomy.
Schumer and actress Jennifer Lawrence were presenting an award together when they were discussing their nicknames. Schumer called herself “A-Schu.” “Amy, you can’t just give yourself a nickname,” Lawrence said. “It has to come naturally. What do people usually call you?”
Schumer replied: “Usually they just call me c***.”
“We can forget about that, but that’s true,” Lawrence said.
