Ricky Gervais Says Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself, Drags Felicity Huffman At Golden Globes

Westlake Legal Group 5e128dbd2500003b1998fd65 Ricky Gervais Says Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself, Drags Felicity Huffman At Golden Globes

Ricky Gervais began his fifth turn hosting the Golden Globe Awards by dragging Felicity Huffman, calling out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for being “very, very racist” and declaring that Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself.

The British comedian opened Sunday’s show by telling the crowd that he very much did not care and that everyone should just appreciate the jokes because “we’re all going to die soon and there’s no sequel.” 

Not missing a beat, Gervais went after former “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman for her involvement in the college admissions scandal and subsequent imprisonment.

“I came here in a limo and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman,” he quipped. 

Gervais went on to compare Joe Pesci to Baby Yoda, blame the lack of diversity at the show on the HFPA being “very, very racist,” and tell everyone that reporter Ronan Farrow is coming for them.

Some of the more daring jokes came when he jabbed DiCaprio for consistently dating much younger women and then flat-out declared that the late financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself.

“I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care,” said Gervais. 

The comedian was bleeped out more than once during the monologue. During one of a few jokes about the movie, “Cats,” Gervais made an X-rated claim about Dame Judi Dench licking … something. Another joke about the film dragged James Corden: “The world got to see James Corden as a fat pussy and he was also in the movie ‘Cats.’”

He also implored the celebrities around him to not make any politically charged statements during their acceptance speeches because they’re “in no position to lecture the public about anything.” 

Previously, Gervais hosted the Golden Globes in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2016, stirring up more and more controversy each time he did.

His jokes over the years have included riffs on Hollywood darlings like Jennifer Lawrence and roasts of problematic celebrities like Mel Gibson who were, arguably, deserving of such treatment. His last hosting stint in 2016 featured a joke about Caitlyn Jenner’s driving skills about a year after she got into an accident that left one person dead. 

That joke coupled with some comments he offered up in December 2019 have driven some people to call the 58-year-old comedian transphobic. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter this week, Gervais noted that the remarks he tweeted last year were in response to spoof Twitter account Jarvis Dupont. The account’s schtick is that “he’s so woke that he’s actually gone full circle and does terrible things” and its latest bit at the time was that Jarvis was transgender but was getting it all “wrong,” according to Gervais.

“I responded by playing along with him, saying, ‘Oh, you’re so much better than biological women because they’ve had a lifetime to get used to it.’ Now, people saw my tweet and they thought he’s a real trans person, but I’m taking the piss out of Jarvis Dupont, who is actually a woman in real life,” Gervais told The Hollywood Reporter, adding that he couldn’t just explain now that he was joking because “that’s not always enough for people.”

“They go, ‘Well, why were you joking?’ Also, add to that the nature of Twitter — it’s so curt, there’s no nuance, it’s there forever out of context,” he said.

Later in the interview, Gervais addressed the Jenner joke, which he said was “misunderstood.”

“I was very careful that the joke was about her being a bad driver. The joke was about stereotypes. I started off being correctly inclusive, saying she’s brave, breaking down barriers. And then I [said] she didn’t do a lot for women drivers,” he said.

Gervais stated at one point: “Deep down, I want people to know I’m not a racist or a homophobe or a sexist.”

49ers vs. Vikings: NFC Divisional Round preview, times & more

The San Francisco 49ers and the Minnesota Vikings will meet in the NFC Divisional Round of the playoffs on Saturday.

The 49ers come into the game as the best team in the NFC with a 13-3 record.

The team clinched home-field advantage when they won the NFC West division for the first time since the 2012 season.

KYLE RUDOLPH’S GAME-WINNING TOUCHDOWN CATCH CALLED INTO QUESTION AS VIKINGS ADVANCE IN PLAYOFFS

Jimmy Garoppolo has led the 49ers offense. He had a bounce-back year after his 2018 season was lost due to a torn ACL. He threw for 3,978 passing yards and 27 touchdown passes. It was the first time he completed a full season and he recorded career-highs in both categories.

He found George Kittle as his top target even though the tight end missed some games due to an injury. Kittle had 1,053 receiving yards and a team-high five touchdown catches. Deebo Samuel had 802 receiving yards and three touchdown passes. Raheem Mostert led the way with 772 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns.

Veteran cornerback Richard Sherman was a huge leader on the defensive side of the ball. He earned a Pro Bowl selection with three interceptions in 2019. Defensive end Arik Armstead led the team with 10 sacks while rookie Nick Bosa had nine sacks and an interception on the year.

SAINTS FANS QUESTION DALVIN COOK’S TOUCHDOWN RUN TO INCREASE VIKINGS’ LEAD IN PLAYOFF GAME

The Vikings somehow defeated the New Orleans Saints in the wild-card playoffs. Kirk Cousins threw a game-winning touchdown pass to tight end Kyle Rudolph in overtime.

But, while Cousins had a solid performance in the win and got his first playoff victory, the Vikings were carried by running back Dalvin Cook. He has had a great 2019 season with 1,135 rushing yards, 13 rushing touchdowns and his first Pro Bowl selection.

Stefon Diggs led the team with 1,130 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns. He likely will need more than three or four targets in this game if the Vikings want to maintain their winning streak.

49ERS’ GEORGE KITTLE PAYS HOMAGE TO JIMMY GAROPPOLO WITH T-SHIRT AFTER NFC WEST VICTORY

Defensive ends Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffen were integral forces against the Saints. Hunter led the team with 14 1/2 sacks while Griffen had eight. Linebacker Eric Kendricks received an All-Pro selection after recording 110 total tackles, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

The winner of the advances to the NFC Championship game.

Chrissy Teigen’s Kids Are Rightfully Obsessed With Their New Rescue Puppy

Westlake Legal Group 5e12832e2400009f245a4f8a Chrissy Teigen’s Kids Are Rightfully Obsessed With Their New Rescue Puppy

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s family somehow just got cuter.

The model and cookbook author posted images and videos of their new puppy to Instagram Sunday, and it’s not hard to tell that her 3-year-old daughter, Luna, and 1-year-old son, Miles, were already in love with little Petey.

In her first post, Teigen explained the family got Petey from the Wagmor Pet Hotel & Spa ― an animal daycare that also rescues pets ― after a tip from their friend Ellen DeGeneres.

DeGeneres had posted on Instagram about Petey’s family last week after Wagmor Pet Hotel & Spa sent out a plea for help for the eight pups and their parents. 

“Dire situation … None have any vetting. We need to raise $$ to cover costs,” the daycare wrote.

“Thank you @TheEllenShow for making us aware of this rescue pup family!!” Teigen tweeted on Sunday.

Petey, who is a standard poodle, was named after the parakeet from “Dumb and Dumber,” she later explained.

“If he’s anything like his dad he’ll be the biggest caramel Gumby ever seen,” she wrote.

Here are all the photos and videos posted of Petey settling in with his new family (and apparent best friend Luna) so far.

Berlin police block activists from dismantling left-wing installation said to hold Holocaust victims’ remains

Amid rising anti-Semitism in Europe, local Jewish activists in the liberal capital of Germany said they’re upset that Berlin police stopped them from dismantling an installation made by left-wing artists which allegedly held remains of victims of the Holocaust.

The Performance Art Committee, a group whose members included both Jewish and non-Jewish activists, said about 20 of its members attempted to cut down a pillar holding an urn that the left-wing Center for Political Beauty placed in front of German parliament last month.

The International Auschwitz Committee condemned the installation last month. Auschwitz survivors were “aghast at this installation, which hurts their feelings and the eternal peace of the dead of their murdered relatives,” the committee said.

USA TODAY HIT FOR OP-ED CLAIMING IT WAS ‘TERRIFYING’ THAT TEXAS CHURCHGOERS WERE ARMED

The Center for Political Beauty, which has been known for its provocative stunts, said the urn contained soil from 23 locations near Nazi death and concentration camps in Germany, Poland and Ukraine where the remains, including ashes, of Holocaust victims were dumped.

The group said it didn’t open any graves.

“We only looked for earth-covered human remains that were hidden by the Nazis in the surroundings of the former death camps,” it said last month.

Jewish groups said regardless of whether the urn contained actual remains, the stunt was a sign of deep disrespect to the victims.

Berlin police spokesman Martin Halweg confirmed to The Associated Press that a member of the Center for Political Beauty had submitted a criminal complaint for property damage to police.

Officers at the scene recorded the identities of four people, and then ordered them to leave the site, which they did, he said. The pillar remained stable, Halweg added.

Following a public outcry, the Center for Political Beauty issued a partial apology for hurting the feelings of Holocaust survivors and victims’ families, but defended the purpose of the stunt, which it said was to highlight the ongoing need to examine Germany’s Nazi past and the recent revival of the far-right.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Golden Globes 2020: Here Are All The Winners

Westlake Legal Group 5e12157925000045bad31cec Golden Globes 2020: Here Are All The Winners

Hollywood’s booziest, most unpredictable and downright frustrating night has arrived. 

The 77th annual Golden Globe Awards kicked off on Sunday at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles where Ricky Gervais will return as host for the fifth time at the sure-to-be controversial ceremony honoring the best in film and television over the past year. 

Netflix is set to rule over the evening due to a history-making 34 nominations with the streaming service occupying four slots in the best picture races and making a strong showing across the television categories thanks to the royal drama “The Crown” and the searing miniseries “Unbelievable.”

Noah Baumbach’s gripping and, yes, heavily memed “Marriage Story” starring best actor hopefuls Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson leads the pack with six nominations, followed by “The Irishman” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” with five apiece. The Eddie Murphy comeback vehicle “Dolemite Is My Name” and the Vatican-set buddy comedy “Two Popes” are also in contention for top-tier prizes.

The Globes are above all else a heat-seeking missile for Hollywood’s biggest stars with Beyoncé and Taylor Swift ― the two singers are facing off in the Best Original Song ― Motion Picture category ― as well as Jennifer Lopez, who could take home her first Golden Globe for her performance in “Hustlers,” all expected to attend the ceremony.   

And despite some underwhelming snubs ― most notably the absence of any female directors ― the award show could break down barriers. Awkwafina is poised to become the first actor of Asian descent to win the Globe in the lead actress in a musical or comedy race, in addition to “Parasite” mastermind Bong Joon Ho standing as the first Korean filmmaker to be nominated for a trophy in the directing category.

Westlake Legal Group 5e12157925000045bad31cec Here Are All The Golden Globes Winners

Sam Mendes’ single-take war film “1917” took home the top-tier prizes at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards, picking up trophies for Best Director and Best Motion Picture Drama.

Hollywood’s booziest, most unpredictable and downright frustrating awards show kicked off Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, where Ricky Gervais returned to host for the fifth time at the ceremony honoring the best in film and television over the past year.

Despite Netflix making history with a towering 34 nominations, the streaming service failed to gain much traction at the ceremony. Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” the Eddie Murphy comeback vehicle “Dolemite Is My Name,” the Vatican-set “The Two Popes” and Noah Baumbach’s gripping “Marriage Story” were almost completely shut out ― save for Laura Dern’s Best Supporting Actress win for “Marriage.”

Instead, Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” nearly dominated the comedy categories, scoring awards for Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt.

“Joker” also had a relatively strong showing, setting the record for most wins by a comic book movie with Joaquin Phoenix nabbing the Best Actor in a Drama trophy.

And despite some underwhelming snubs ― most notably the absence of any female directors ― the show broke down some barriers, with Awkwafina becoming the first actor of Asian descent to win the Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” making history as the first Korean film winner in the Best Foreign Film category. 

In the television arena, HBO’s “Succession” took home multiple awards with wins for drama series and lead actor Brian Cox, while Amazon’s “Fleabag” dominated in the comedy categories.

Trump Reiterates Threat to Target Iranian Cultural Sites

Westlake Legal Group 05dc-trump-facebookJumbo Trump Reiterates Threat to Target Iranian Cultural Sites War Crimes, Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity United States Politics and Government United States International Relations United States Defense and Military Forces Trump, Donald J Suleimani, Qassim Pompeo, Mike Iran

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Sunday evening doubled down on his claim that he would target Iranian cultural sites if Iran retaliated for the targeted killing of one of its top generals, breaking with his secretary of state over the issue.

Aboard Air Force One on his way back from his holiday trip to Florida, Mr. Trump reiterated to reporters traveling with him the spirit of a Twitter post on Saturday, when he said that the United States government had identified 52 sites for retaliation against Iran if there were a response to Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani’s death. Some, he tweeted, were of “cultural” significance.

Such a move could be considered a war crime under international laws, but Mr. Trump said Sunday that he was undeterred.

“They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people,” the president said. “And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn’t work that way.”

The remarks came just hours after the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, walked back Mr. Trump’s tweets and said that whatever was done in any military engagement with Iran would be within the bounds of the law.

Mr. Trump also vowed to impose sanctions on Iraq if a move to evict American military personnel from the country takes place, a possibility heightened by the Iraqi Parliament’s passage Sunday of a measure to expel foreign troops. And Mr. Trump said that he had been tracking General Suleimani for many months.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

The Seattle Seahawks got a fantastic game from rookie D.K. Metcalf and a strong performance from the defense to end the Philadelphia Eagles’ playoff hopes and advance to the next round.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was 18-for-30 with 325 passing yards and a touchdown pass in the 17-9 win.

The touchdown pass, to Metcalf in the third quarter, gave Seattle enough of an edge to hold off the Eagles.

Metcalf finished with seven receptions for 160 yards and the touchdown. He also had the long catch to seal the win for Seattle.

Seattle’s defense also caught a bit of a break.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was knocked out of the game after he took a hit to the head from Seahawks defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney. Wentz didn’t return to the game; Josh McCown replaced him.

McCown gave a valiant effort but couldn’t score a touchdown even when they got close. McCown was 18-for-24 with 174 passing yards. However, he was sacked six times while Wentz was sacked once. Those key sacks were enough to half any kind of Eagles momentum.

Seattle is set to take on the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round.

The last time the two teams met in the playoffs was on Jan. 18, 2015, in the NFC Championship game. Seattle scored 15 points in the fourth quarter and got the game-winning touchdown pass from Wilson to Jermaine Kearse in overtime to win the game.

This upcoming matchup is sure to be a classic.

Trump Reiterates Threat to Target Iranian Cultural Sites

Westlake Legal Group 05dc-trump-facebookJumbo Trump Reiterates Threat to Target Iranian Cultural Sites War Crimes, Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity United States Politics and Government United States International Relations United States Defense and Military Forces Trump, Donald J Suleimani, Qassim Pompeo, Mike Iran

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Sunday evening doubled down on his claim that he would target Iranian cultural sites if Iran retaliated for the targeted killing of one of its top generals, breaking with his secretary of state over the issue.

Aboard Air Force One on his way back from his holiday trip to Florida, Mr. Trump reiterated to reporters traveling with him the spirit of a Twitter post on Saturday, when he said that the United States government had identified 52 sites for retaliation against Iran if there were a response to Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani’s death. Some, he tweeted, were of “cultural” significance.

Such a move could be considered a war crime under international laws, but Mr. Trump said Sunday that he was undeterred.

“They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people,” the president said. “And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn’t work that way.”

The remarks came just hours after the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, walked back Mr. Trump’s tweets and said that whatever was done in any military engagement with Iran would be within the bounds of the law.

Mr. Trump also vowed to impose sanctions on Iraq if a move to evict American military personnel from the country takes place, a possibility heightened by the Iraqi Parliament’s passage Sunday of a measure to expel foreign troops. And Mr. Trump said that he had been tracking General Suleimani for many months.

Celeste Barber’s Fundraiser For Aussie Firefighters Tops $22 Million

Westlake Legal Group 5e1272a524000041245a4f4d Celeste Barber’s Fundraiser For Aussie Firefighters Tops $22 Million

Australian comedian Celeste Barber has rallied citizens of the world to donate to the firefighters on the frontlines of Australia’s wildfire crisis.

Since the Facebook fundraiser was launched Friday, almost 800,000 people from all corners of the globe have donated a fast-growing total of more than $22 million (almost $32 million Australian dollars) to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

Barber, who is famous for parodying celebrities on Instagram, started the fundraiser after her family was badly struck by fires in the New South Wales south coast town of Eden. 

“This is my mother in laws house. It’s terrifying. They are scared. They need your help. International donations can be made via the link in my bio,” she wrote on Instagram to her 6.5 million followers.

“Finally! Someone with an international following raising awareness to how much we are in trouble. Thank you Celeste!!!!!” one commenter wrote on her post. 

“Hi Celeste, me and my mum lost our family’s property (not our permanent home) on Tuesday in the fires. I had a huge collection of books up there that I left for guests who stayed and one of them was yours. The last time I was up there I read your book in the sun on our balcony and laughed so much. Very good memories. I hope more celebrities start garnering some attention because as you say, we really need help,” another commenter wrote on Facebook.

Donors on the Facebook fundraiser page shared messages of hope from around the world, from countries including the U.S., Finland, Denmark, U.K., France, Canada, New Zealand and Germany.

In an Instagram story, Barber said she had spoken to the head of the fire service, who said the fundraiser had given them “a bit of positivity in the terror.”

“We are going to keep pushing,” she said.

Barber said that the funds, which were initially intended for the NSW RFS, will also be distributed to firefighters in the states of Victoria and South Australia. She said she’d been “overwhelmed” with feedback and would work with relevant authorities and consult with fire services to get funding to wildlife charities, the Red Cross, and the families of those killed by the fires.

HuffPost has reached out to Barber’s publicist for further information.

On Sunday, as the fundraiser continued to climb by around $10,000 a minute, Barber shared a video of her mother-in-law Joy Robin from bushfire-ravaged Eden, where the sky was a frightening shade of orange. She was upset and emotional as she called out the government for leaving them “high and dry.”

Since the fundraiser’s launch, singer Pink and actor Nicole Kidman have pledged $500,000 each to local fire services in bushfire-affected states of Australia.

“I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires. I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz,” P!nk wrote on Saturday.

Kidman, who was reportedly in tears during a Golden Globes event in Los Angeles on Saturday, said her and her partner Keith Urban’s “support, thoughts and prayers,” were with all those affected in Australia.

The link to Barber’s fundraiser was also shared by singer Lizzo, who is a headliner for Australia’s FOMO festival, “Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness, and actors Natalie Portman and Selma Blair.

Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios set off a wave of support in the sporting world when he pledged his support to the cause. Ashleigh Barty, another Aussie tennis player, pledged to donate her entire $250,000 prize if she wins Brisbane International. Five-time grand slam winner Maria Sharapova, who is in the country ahead of the upcoming Australian Open, promised a $25,000 donation and urged World No. 2 Novak Djokovic to match it.

At the Golden Globes on Sunday, “Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge announced backstage that she would auction off the Ralph Russo suit she wore to the awards ceremony and donate the money to Australia’s fire relief. Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Ellen DeGeneres and Pierce Brosnan used their speeches to bring attention to the crisis.

Other celebrities, including Hugh Jackman, Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez have all pledged and urged support for those affected by fires, which have killed 23 people, razed more than 1,500 homes, and burnt through more than five million hectares. Close to half a billion animals are feared dead, according to estimates from ecologists.
