Only “furious moronic c**ts” liked Ricky Gervais’s Golden Globes set, declares the worst article ever written by a comic in the history of comedy or journalism.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host the Golden Globes in 2021, Poehler announced onstage at NBCUniversal’s Televison Critics Assn. press tour Saturday. “NBC has long been the home to two of the funniest people on the planet — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — and we didn’t want to wait any longer […]
Universal and DreamWorks’ “1917” is marching quickly following its Golden Globe victories, scoring $36.5 million at the U.S. box office in its first weekend playing nationwide. Sam Mendes’ World War I drama, which took home best picture and best director at Sunday’s Globes, had previously nabbed $2.7 million in limited release after opening on Christmas […]
Reese Witherspoon just found herself a couple of new drinking buddies!
The Morning Show star took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday to show off a surprise gift she was sent by Beyoncé and JAY-Z: a case of their Ace of Spades champagne!
Why did the superstar couple send the actress a case of bubbly, you ask? Well, it all goes back to the 2020 Golden Globes on Sunday.
During the award show, Reese and co-star Jennifer Aniston ran out of water at their table, so naturally the Legally Blonde star went over to Bey and Jay’s table and asked for some refreshments — and came back with a few glasses of their champagne that they brought to the ceremony!
It was all documented on Jen’s Insta Stories (below):
Flash forward to Thursday: the Big Little Lies producer came back home from New York to find a surprise package from the couple. She told her followers in the video:
“I just got home from New York, and the most beautiful flowers are here, and a case of Ace of Spades champagne.”
The special delivery came complete with a note from Jay and B, which hilariously read:
Reese went on to open the bottle of champagne with her mom Betty, who was a bit hesitant to drink at 11:30 in the morning. But, as Reese put it, “who cares!?” She captioned the post:
“It’s 5 o’clock somewhere right??”
It sure is, gurl!
After a dramatic pop of the bottle, Reese and Betty had a sip of the bubbly, which tasted AH-Mazing, unsurprisingly.
“It’s really good. It’s a good way to start the New Year.”
Reese may not have walked away with a Golden Globe this week, but we think free champagne from Beyoncé and JAY-Z is a great consolation prize!
Ch-ch-check out the fun video (below):

For those who don’t know, Jay purchased Ace of Spades (the brand’s actual name is Armand de Brignac Champagne) in 2014, and it has since become a staple at clubs, bars, and restaurants all over the country.
The brand is also well regarded among wine critics; in 2016, Armand de Brignac Blanc de Noirs Assemblage One (A1) was awarded the #1 Blanc De Noirs in the World for 2016 by FINE Champagne Magazine. The following year, Armand de Brignac Brut Rosé was awarded Best Rosé Champagne in the World for 2017 by TastingBook.com. But of course, this liquid prestige doesn’t come cheap: each bottle costs about $300!
Drink up, Reese!

Long before the push for diversity and inclusion, Hollywood had a few Latin/Hispanic stars who made a big impact. One was Katy Jurado, the first Latina actress to win a Golden Globe (for 1952’s “High Noon”) and the first nominated for an Oscar (1954’s “Broken Lance”). She was born Jan. 16, 1924, in Mexico, and […]
With the Globes now behind us and Oscar noms rapidly approaching on Jan. 13, what should we be paying attention to in Hollywood’s biggest film awards race? Surefire bets are Globe winners Renée Zellweger (“Judy”), who already has one Oscar, and Brad Pitt, who should garner his third acting nomination for his work in Quentin […]
There were several memorable speeches Sunday night from the Golden Globes podium on vital subjects ranging from the horrific fires in Australia to getting out the vote in 2020. Two of the addresses that stood out most for me were the personal words spoken so eloquently by Kate McKinnon and Michelle Williams. Despite their celebrity, […]
Russell Crowe couldn’t attend the Golden Globes on Sunday because it was claimed he was too busy at home “protecting his family from the devastating bush fires.” But this may have been dramatic licence because there are currently no fires near Crowe’s home.
Ricky Gervais has mocked the journalists who took his jokes at the Golden Globes seriously as “morons,” saying that they lack a basic understanding of how humor works.
Netflix may have stumbled at the Golden Globes with just two wins, but the streamer isn’t slowing down its awards campaigning anytime soon. On the film side, Netflix is going full throttle in its attempt to earn honors for “The Irishman” and “Marriage Story” along the way to eventual wins at the Oscars. “It’s still […]
China’s state-run Global Times took great exception to Golden Globe Awards host Ricky Gervais’ slam at the Apple corporation for using “sweatshops in China,” publishing an editorial response on Monday that criticized Westerners for “refusing to work hard and pinning their hopes on public welfare.”
Actor-comedian Ricky Gervais took to social media to welcome what he said were the 300,000 new followers he gained on Twitter following his Golden Globes hosting performance Sunday, in which he called out Hollywood’s virtue signaling about climate change, Apple operating sweatshops, and Hollywood’s silence about accused rapist and disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.
Australian police investigating the bushfires have arrested more than 180 alleged arsonists in the past few months. But apparently they forgot to send the memo to Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, both of whom insisted in their Golden Globes acceptance speeches that the Australian bushfires were in fact caused by ‘climate change.’
In his evisceration of Hollywood virtue-signalers at the Golden Globes yesterday, Ricky Gervais touched on an important point: A-list celebrities increasingly find themselves employed not by studios, but by tech companies with deeply questionable global business practices.
Ricky Gervais is hitting back at mainstream media criticism of his performance as host of the Golden Globes, pointing out that he took humorous aim at targets that liberals usually love to hate, like large corporations and the super wealthy.
Hollywood celebrities are singing the praises of actress Michelle Williams for her Golden Globes acceptance speech in which she said having an abortion made it possible for her to live the life and career of her own making.
Actress Margot Robbie explained in a recent interview how she learned to put aside her differences and empathize with young, conservative women by logging onto Twitter and reading points of view that differ from her own.
Who saw this one coming?!
Kate Beckinsale has now apparently followed up her brief (and improbable) relationship with Pete Davidson by… hanging out with the Saturday Night Live star’s close friend, Machine Gun Kelly?! Whoa, wait, what?!
According to a repot from DailyMail.com, the 46-year-old actress was spotted with MGK at “multiple” 2020 Golden Globes after parties! The pair reportedly hit up two different Hollywood hot spots on Sunday night, and by the end of it all, they left the second venue together in the same car. Hmmm…
It’s doubly ironic that we’re reporting on this, of course; first, Beckinsale had previously been tied to Davidson, and it’s at least a little unexpected to now see her hanging out with the SNL funny man’s close friend! But even more ironic than that, it was last year’s Golden Globes where Beckinsale and Davidson got together in the first place!
Talk about a funny coincidence… maybe the Golden Globes are just Kate’s time to get down?! Not hatin’! Just sayin’! LOLz!!!
As you’ll recall from all of our reporting on it last year, Beckinsale and the 26-year-old comic dated for four months after the Globes, ultimately splitting in May 2019. For Pete, the connection came relatively quickly after his white-hot relationship with and engagement to Ariana Grande in 2018; those two were together for about five months before splitting right at the end of the year. Beckinsale, then, was something of a rebound for him, though the two did last for quite a while and seemed to be a good connection.
Pete made headlines more recently when, during an episode of SNL, the late night sketch show cast member announced he was soon to be headed to rehab on the episode which saw Eddie Murphy host and Lizzo perform.
Davidson made the announcement with a bit of a humorous touch while sitting next to Weekend Update co-host Colin Jost, who showed a lot of support for the funnyman during what’s obviously been a tough time.
Now, though, it appears Kate has moved right along to Pete’s pal, and things might be… awkward? Or not? What do U think, Perezcious readers?? Should we be prepared for some drama here, or is it all fair between exes and friends? What’s the rule on this one?!

Tom Hanks‘ son, Chet Hanks, is getting a lot of attention right now for… all the wrong reasons.
Colin Hanks‘ younger bro was out and about at the Golden Globes last night, evidently doing the red carpet thing to support his movie star father, when the 29-year-old was captured on camera speaking… Jamaican patois? Wait, WTF?!
A video clip went viral on social media on Sunday night showing the second-youngest Hanks kid going off on the camera in what appeared to be a Jamaican patois-like dialect. You can see the whole (disturbing, random, questionable) thing here:
why is Tom Hanks' son Chet Hanks speaking patois? pic.twitter.com/mNh8ih8JhA

We know Chet has had some issues in the past, to put it mildly, but what is going on in that video?! This is totally different, and weird, and… disturbing? Is it, like, a character he’s playing, or something??? Seriously… no words…
Thankfully, we’re not the only ones completely confused by whatever it is we’re seeing here. As you can see (below), other social media users had a TON of reactions to the bizarre social media post:
— Theala (@ThealaB22) January 6, 2020
Yeah… that look just about says it all!
And the replies and reactions all across social media did, too. “He really thinks he’s everything but white,” one user wrote about Chet, while another added “This is deeply disturbing and chaotic.” Yeah, no kidding!
Another Twitter user laughed out loud at the clip, writing, “LMAO. He thinks we don’t know that his dad is Tom Hanks. He is as white as they come!”
Still another pointed out something more serious about the language used in the video, too:
“*deep sigh* THIS is what happens when privileged ppl don’t respect cultural boundaries. Some truly feel this is ok. I’d like to suggest learning the difference between cultural APPRECIATION and APPROPRIATION.”
Others had more eclectic commentary on Chet, with one person tweeting, “Sometimes the apple falls off the tree and rolls down a hill and into a ravine.”
Another one added more:
“I can’t describe how deeply my soul has been disturbed. I thought he gave up the appropriation after rehab?! I know he’s Tom’s biggest disappointment lol.”
And an exasperated follower noted the poor guy might’ve been set up to fail for a while:
“I know we think that Tom Hanks can do no wrong, but I blame him and Rita Wilson for this. You can’t name your son ‘Chet’ and then expect that great things will come of it. 🤷🏾♀️”
Of course, we feel the same way one final tweeter did, when they replied with, “Thank god for Colin. The legacy is only safe with him.”
Ha! Not lying…
Chet himself actually reacted to the controversy, too, publishing this sarcastic post on his own IG feed (below):
Seriously, Perezcious readers… what the heck do you make of this video?? How concerned should we be here??
Sound OFF with your take on everything in the comments (below)…

The 2020 Golden Globes ratings went the way of seemingly all awards show these days, dipping to 18.3 million total viewers and a 4.7 rating among adults 18-49. Although last night’s Ricky Gervais-hosted show was only down 2% on 2019, according to Nielsen live-plus same day numbers, it still represented an eight-year viewership low for […]
