The Golden Globes are known for their bawdy behavior. And while Ricky Gervais may have kept his quips mostly under control Sunday (Jan. 15), that didn’t stop a number of presenters from going to the most base form of humor, referencing male anatomy.
The jokes started early on in the show. Seth Rogen, while standing alongside stunner Kate Beckinsale during the presentation of best actress in a motion picture (comedy) says, “Hello, I’m Seth Rogen, and I am currently trying to conceal a massive erection.” This comment drew laughs from the audience and an embarrassed look from Beckinsale.
Another comment referencing the lower abdominal region came from Tina Fey and her co-presenter Jane Lynch while talking about former “Hung” star Thomas Jane. And then there was George Clooney who suggested Michael Fassbender, who went full frontal in “Shame,” might want to take up golf given the size of his…err…putter.
Even Madonna got in on the fun when she ripped host Ricky Gervais. The Material Girl says to Gervais, “I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years.”
So Zappers, did you think they worked a little too blue tonight?
