Comic Ricky Gervais hosts the 77th annual awards ceremony, where “Marriage Story (2019)” leads the field with six nominations, while Tom Hanks is presented with Cecil B. DeMille Award and TV host Ellen DeGeneres receives the Carol Burnett Award.
User Reviews: Firstly, Ricky was the star and without him it would’ve been so boring. He was right over 3 hours with adverts is so long! But the opening monologue by Ricky was one of the sharpest and the best for years. He was able to capture the sentiment of people watching the program and kudos to Ricky for that. Almost all of his lines were quotable and were repeated in the offices the next day! Bring him back on again!!
Some of the winners of the awards were surprising and could’ve done without the speeches by some of them – Patricia Arquette,Michelle,etc.
All in all a higher rating only for the one and only Ricky Gervais!
