Gervais, returning to host for the fourth time, riled up the audience with his opening monologue, calling the audience "disgusting, pill-popping, sexual deviant scum."

He directed his acerbic tongue towards Sean Penn, Jeffrey Tambor, Matt Damon, Jennifer Lawrence and Caitlyn Jenner.

He praised Jenner for being a role model before quickly quipping "She didn't do a lot for women drivers. But you can't have everything, can you?" referring to Jenner's Malibu car crash last year.

He took a swipe at Lawrence's essay on why women aren't being equally paid as men in Hollywood, saying "How the hell can a 25-year-old live on $52 million?"

Gervais also joked that he was earning what Tina Fey and Amy Poehler combined earned when they hosted the Globes last year. "It's not my fault if they want to share the money," he said.

Amazon's musical show 'Mozart in the Jungle' was the surprise winner of best TV comedy series and 'My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' newcomer Rachel Bloom took home the award for best comedy TV actress over favorite Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Some see the Golden Globes, voted on by the 90 or so members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, as predictors of the more prestigious Academy Awards. Oscar nominations will be announced Thursday, with the show following on February 28.
