We were excited for this year’s Golden Globe Awards particularly because of the number of LGBT-themed actors and movies/TV nominated for the golden sphere. We didn’t take home any statues, though the number of nominees was quite impress. Despite the record-number of transgender-focused movies and television programs, comedian Ricky Gervais, who hosted the show, chose to make a low blow against the community and solidify societal stigma against them—all within minutes of the broadcast. Unoriginally, the comic made fun of Caitlyn Jenner, an athlete who has nothing to do with Hollywood.

“I’ve changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously. Now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she’s had. She became a role model for trans people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes,” he said while the celebrity-filled crowd awkwardly chuckled. “She didn’t do a lot for women drivers, but you can’t have everything, can ya?”

He then turned his attention to Transparent, and the always-classy Jeffrey Tambor.  “At least Jeffrey Tambor did it in a dress. Um, what a year he’s had. Oh. What an actor, what a role. Every day, he has to put on all that women’s clothes and the hair and makeup and let people film it. That takes balls. So, I don’t know how he does it. I really don’t. I’ve seen his balls. They are huge and long. I don’t know he tucked them in the bra, that thing push them out the back and let them hang out, like a bulldog? No one knows. I love Jeffrey Tambor.”

That wasn’t all Gervais had to say about the transgender community. Toward the end of the show, he insulted Academy Award–winning Eddie Redmayne by introducing him as a British actress, poking fun of his role in The Danish Girl.

Jenner wasn’t the only one on Gervais’s hit list, the comedian is surely not looking to return to the award show gig went after Mel Gibson, Matt Damon, Adam Sandlers’s Pixels, and even the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who cuts his paycheck.
