He said, "All this hypocrisy makes you the worst people in the world to lecture the rest of us about morality or pretty much anything," then socked it to them:

"If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. If you win, thank your agent, thank your god, and f*** off."

Should we not hope that this is the beginning of the end of 'woke' hypocrisy?

Not the end. Not even the beginning of the end of “woke” hypocrisy’s.
I expect it went right over their heads, most of them seem to have their ears painted on when it comes to criticism.
Surely he’s being just as sanctimonious as everyone else
It would have been all scripted and remember, Hollywood 'stars' queue up to be 'roasted' as they call it so I saw it as a mass scripted 'Roasting' by someone as sanctimonious as the people he was criticising.
^^^ All part of show business and I am sure they all are perfectly aware of the show.
aware of what show?
The script you just mentioned.
That was my point and answer to the OP . No he hasn't given 'Hollywood' a good thrashing as they were probably aware of what was going to happen by their 'people' and reacted accordingly -most if not all were laughing....

'So many people [watching on TV ] must have cheered. People who are sick of being lectured about their carbon footprint by alarmingly rich celebs who fly about in private jets.

People who’ve had enough of being instructed on the importance of feminism by an industry saturated with sexual madness.

People who don’t take kindly to being told to use PC language and the correct pronouns by people who make movies containing graphic violence and ceaseless expletives (which is fine, by the way).

People who are just tired of the idea that we must bow and scrape to right-on celebs and other do-gooders who always assume they know better than us.

Gervais spoke for us all. Let’s hope this is a turning point in woke nonsense. Let’s hope people who are famous will now think twice before using their platform to pontificate to the masses about things they have no right whatsoever to pontificate on.'

From the Spectator blog today
As 'Roasts' go it was par for the course really.
Gervais spent the evening telling the truth and not attacking Trump. As a result he produced, live, one of the funniest, irony laden moments ever to have befallen the Hollyweird bubble dwellers. The looks on their faces was priceless. Most of em have never produced anything as believably accurate, after makeup an rehearsals, as they did by accident. Tom Hanks even had his Forest Gump look back. After decades of free speech and though being stifled by the social manipulators and hate projectionists they were in shock to hear an honest opinion of themselves.
I wish he'd said more.
This was a sweeter, rarer 'Roast' Mamya aimed at far more deserving acting group

How does he know they have spent less time in school than Greta
Thunberg?
-- answer removed --
Preferred him when he used to do that late night slot on some comedy show, the name if which I can't now recall. Less impressed since. Comes across as being a B to work or live with. Still, the roast was quite good, even if I didn't get all the references.

This is Ricky Gervais' third Golden Globes stint. He was hilarious the last two times. I've not seen this one, but I would've assumed his scriptwriters would've pulled the stops out again.

I think most people would've simply enjoyed the monologue. I doubt it will bring about a change in anyone's attitudes. Unless they are the kind of people who use it to promote their own narrative?
And to the rest of the PC infected rissoles, Gervais wasn't at a roast, he was at a back slapping love fest for the Hollywood hypocrites whose juvenile political views you share.
And they didn't enjoy listening to the home truths he delivered. Doubt The Guardian would have informed us that he died on stage if it was all part of PC/Luvvie plan.
Thanks for that in-depth, informed opinion, Sp. ;-)
