During his hilarious opening monologue. Host Ricky Gervais skewered Hollywood “woke” culture and warned “if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spend less time in school than Greta Thunberg.”
Actress Patricia Arquette chose to ignore Gervais’ “advice.”
After winning an awards for a supporting role in “The Act,” Arquette could not resist speaking out against President Trump.
We’re not going to look back on this night in the history books, we will see a country on the brink of war, the United States of America, the president tweeting out a threat of 52 bombs, including cultural sites.
Young people risking their lives traveling across the world. People not knowing if bombs are gonna drop on their kids’ heads. And the continent of Australia on fire.
So while I love my kids so much, I beg of us all to give them a better world. For our kids and their kids, we have to vote in 2020 and we have to vote, and plead, for everyone we know to vote in 2020.
