Ricky Gervais’ Over-The-Top Cats Joke That Got Bleeped At The Golden Globes Was Not What You’d Guess

Awards Season officially kicked off last weekend, as the Hollywood Foreign Press had the annual Golden Globe Awards. This ceremony honors both TV and film, and was hosted for the fifth and final time by comedian Ricky Gervais. Gervais pulled no punches during his opening monologue, making a ton of savage and awkward jokes about the celebrities in the room. But there was one joke he truly struggled to get out, focusing on Dame Judi Dench and her infamous role in Cats. The punchline was bleeped out, and the dirty word the comedian said might surprise you.

Ricky Gervais took aim at Cats, which has become the viral source of countless memes since Tom Hooper’s movie musical arrived in theaters in December. Judi Dench has been adamant about her love for the role of Old Deuteronomy, with Gervais’ joke being “Dame Judi Dench defended the film, saying it was the role she was born to play because she – I can’t do this next joke. Because she loves nothing better than plunking her ass down on the carpet, lifting her legs and licking her own –” That’s when his dirty word was bleeped out from the Golden Globe telecast, although Ricky Gervais has clarified the choice expletive of the quip. Check it our below.

Well, that’s one way to get bleeped. We all knew that Ricky Gervais was doing to a dirty place, and it turned out that the British slang word for the female genitalia was the word of choice. No wonder he had such a hard time delivering the joke.

For those unfamiliar, minge is a slang word used to describe lady parts across the pond. It’s a street colloquialism, and one that wouldn’t be naturally associated with such a respected figure like Judi Dench. That juxtaposition is where the comedy truly lies, with Ricky Gervais struggling to say such a dirty thing about the beloved icon. And while it ultimately got bleeped, there were plenty of shocked looks around the room as the comedian skewered the audience.

The Judi Dench joke was just one of many super awkward jokes that Ricky Gervais fired off during his Golden Globe opening monologue. He made jokes about the last year of entertainment world, and held nothing back. That includes zingers about Felicity Huffman’s time behind bars, Leonardo DiCaprio’s reputation for dating younger women, as well as taking Martin Scorsese’s side on superhero movies by claiming the actors were only working out and taking steroids.

Well, that was one way to go out. Ricky Gervais made it clear that his fifth time hosting the Golden Globe Awards would be his last. And as such, he didn’t pull any punches when making fun of various entertainment news stories. The host didn’t appear in many more sequences after that monologue, indicating that he really was retiring from the gig.

It should be interesting to see how Awards Season continues on, and if other ceremonies like the Emmys and Oscars have similar results to the Golden Globes. The Globes tend to honor some wild cards, and have more categories. So almost anything could happen with the upcoming ceremonies. In the meantime, check out our 2020 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.

Disney+’s Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made Trailer Features A Boy And His Friend Polar Bear

Disney+ isn’t even two months old and already we’ve had three original movies for the streaming service. Now, we have our first look at the next offering. Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made. Based on a book series, the new Disney+ film, set to release in February, will tell the story of a young boy detective and his partner, a 1500 pound polar bear.

While that premise is certainly the sort of thing that will appeal to young kids, the trailer itself looks like the movie will will attract a much wider audience. Check out the first trailer for Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made below.

Timmy Failure is a boy who “runs” his own detective agency. With his failure mobile, a segway, and his polar bear partner, he investigates his home in Portland, Oregon, but when the failure mobile is stolen, his case becomes personal. He and his partner must recover his lost ride, all while navigating the world of elementary school. It’s a jungle out there.

Timmy Failure was one of those projects that was announced as a Disney+ movie years ago, and while clips have been shown to limited audiences at places like D23, the general public has been kept in the dark until now. I have to say, while I had no exposure to the source material, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were made looks like it could be a lot of fun.

13 Rings Inspired by The Bachelor That Don’t Cost Six Figures

Pete Weber, a.k.a Pilot Pete’s season of The Bachelor kicked off last night, January 6, but for some reason, all I can think about is how Hannah Brown had to give back that gorgeous oval-cut engagement ring last year. I don’t know about you, but nothing cures the sting of breaking up with your guitar-wielding fiancé quite like $80 grand worth of platinum and diamonds.

According to Chris Harrison, if a Bachelor couple only makes it a few months before breaking up, the custom-made rings—often valued around $100,000—go back to their creator, the iconic celebrity jewelry designer Neil Lane.

With a price tag like that, it’s no wonder Bachelor Nation is so obsessed with these winning rocks. Even Lane himself has a favorite. “I will admit that the pear-shaped ring Bryan Abasolo gave to Rachel Lindsay holds a special place in my heart,” Lane tells Glamour. “My mother had a similar diamond that I grew up admiring, and it’s inspired a number of my pear-shaped designs in both my Couture collection and my collection at Kay Jewelers.”

Wait, so it is possible to find a ring that matches your Bachelorette-inspired Pinterest board without all those zeroes on the tag? Yup! And Lane has some thoughts on which specific rings you should look for heading into 2020 (even if you’re just planning a dream engagement in your head).

“It’s only fitting that ‘modern’ designs are one of the biggest trends of 2020,” Lane says. “They blend the old and the new, glamour and simplicity. Some of the most popular styles combine straight lines, contrasting stones, and unconventional details, adding an unconventional twist to an otherwise classic look.”

So, if you’re looking for a ring that screams, “Will you accept this rose?” here are 13 options based on Bachelor Nation favorites that won’t cost you $100,000. The best part: You don’t have to actually date more than one person at a time or sign any contracts to get them.

Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen

Becca’s “jaw hit the sand” when she spotted these tri-oval diamonds encased in gold.

Shop similar: The Neil Lane Bridal Diamond Engagement Ring 1-1/3 Carat 14K Gold ($3,249.99, 50% off original retail price).

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rogers

JoJo’s first engagement ring from Jordan Rogers is probably the sparkliest in Bachelor history. The oval-cut stone in a four-prong setting is just the start. (The band is also set with a few hundred more diamonds.)

The Matrix 4’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Is Getting Ripped For The New Movie

“Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place?” Morpheus queried Neo in The Matrix after besting him in the sparring program. Of course having big muscles has no bearing on martial ability in the virtual world of the Matrix, but I suppose it can’t hurt either. To that end, one of the leads of The Matrix 4, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is getting ripped for the new movie. Take a look:

As Tank told Morpheus after Neo spent 10 straight hours in training programs “He’s a machine.” It looks like the same descriptor could apply to Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. It may not have been 10 hours straight, but he has definitely spent way more than 10 hours in the gym to attain his physique. The actor is clearly training very hard for the biggest role yet in his rapidly ascending career.

Anyone who has seen HBO’s Watchmen, where Yahya Abdul-Mateen plays a significant role, knows that the actor was already in great shape and is no stranger to having his shirt off on camera, but it looks like he is ready to take it to another level for The Matrix 4. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II looks absolutely ripped here and since he’s just getting back to training, this isn’t even his final form!

On his Instagram video, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II claims he is back to training and in “Matrix Mode” which is actually kind of interesting and makes you wonder about what character he is playing and what this movie will be. The stars of The Matrix trilogy weren’t out of shape by any stretch, but being shirtless and having an action figure-esque physique was never part of The Matrix franchise and that was kind of the point.

The strength of Neo, Trinity and Morpheus came from their imagination and their ability to free their minds from the constraints of what they believed was possible in order to achieve the impossible. The only times we really saw them with their shirts off was when they were partying in Zion.

So we’ll have to wait and see if The Matrix 4 takes things in a different direction and what the film has in store for Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who may or may not be playing young Morpheus.

While I don’t know if he has any martial arts background other than his training for Aquaman, Yahya Abdul-Mateen should be in good enough shape for whatever the film requires of him. And even if he never takes his shirt off he’ll definitely be able to fill out a black trench coat.

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II isn’t the only one training for The Matrix 4. The One himself Keanu Reeves has also been prepping for his return, as has Trinity Carrie-Anne Moss. They’ll be joined by the returning Jada Pinkett Smith and newcomers Jonathan Groff, Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris and Toby Onwumere, all of whom I imagine are getting ready to enter the Matrix. The Matrix 4 is set to begin filming next month.

The Matrix 4 opens in theaters on May 21, 2021. Check out our 2020 Release Schedule to see what movies are coming out this year.

Tom Hanks’ Golden Globe Speech Was Even Sweeter Than We Realized

The 2020 Golden Globes had its share of memorable moments, but none might have been quite as special as the presentation of the Cecil B. DeMile award to Tom Hanks. Whether it was Charlize Theron‘s personal introduction, the clip package containing some of the greatest moments in movie history, or Hanks’ own emotional acceptance speech, there were plenty of moments that might have made you tear up just a little.

In addition to being one of the greatest actors of this or any generation, Tom Hanks has a reputation for simply being one of the kindest people in Hollywood. In a town that is known for its seedier elements, Hanks appears to truly be everything we want him to be. He tends to play good people on screen, and truly is one in real life as well, and he showed that love and generosity even in his acceptance speech.

Very early on in the speech, Hanks gets emotional himself as he is about to talk about his family. He thanks his wife for everything she has done for him and then talks about the five children seated at the table with her. The thing is, Tom Hanks only has four kids, but he didn’t misspeak.

According to People, a source told them that Tom Hanks thinks of Samantha Bryant, the wife of Colin Hanks, as one of his children, and as such he feels like he has five kids.

Even in the middle of his acceptance speech Tom Hanks is just being the world’s greatest human, showing his love not only for his biological family, but also those that he has welcomed into that family by choice.

The lifetime achievement award was the only one that Tom Hanks went home with on Sunday night, he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Fred Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Considering that Fred Rogers is another of those famous people who has been confirmed to be as good as he appeared, the casting was perfect, even if it wasn’t quite award worthy on Sunday. I’m guessing nobody was too disappointed considering the night Tom Hanks still had.

If you didn’t get a chance to check out Tom Hanks complete acceptance speech, check it out below.

When you see an actor on that big screen often enough you come to feel like you know them and that may not have ever been more true than with Tom Hanks. He plays the roles of heroes and people with pure hearts most of the time and seeing him up on the Golden Globes stage playing himself, it’s clear that really is the man we see.

Tom Hanks’ awards season is far from over. This morning he was nominated for a BAFTA for his role in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and it seems more than likely that an Oscar nomination is in his future as well.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Has Seen Significantly High Drops In Attendance Since Opening Weekend

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has been in movie theaters for a few weeks now and it’s been mostly good news. The flick has already made $918.7 million dollars globally and should shoot right over the one billion mark in the coming weeks. However, percentage-wise, the numbers are looking a bit less beautiful, as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker dropped a whopping 81% in its third weekend.

This is after the drop was fairly steep between Weekend 1 and Weekend 2 as well, with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker dropping 59.2%, per Forbes. This also means the last flick in the trilogy dropped from $177 million opening weekend domestically to only $72 million domestically its second weekend and $33.7 million its third weekend.

To note, this movie will make money for its parent studio. It’s also worth noting Star Wars movies have traditionally seen kind of large drops at the box office from week to week as excited fans seem to love going opening weekend. For example, in comparison, Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi initially dropped 67.5% between Weekend 1 and Weekend 2.

Again, most of the time movies do drop in the charts between Week 1 and Week 2. Even if movies manage to be “the number one movie of the weekend” for several weekends in a row, they are most likely still seeing fairly high percentage drops and not percentage gains during those weeks in the charts.

In comparison, when Wonder Woman came out back in 2018, the movie was touted for having a fairly low percentage drop between Week 1 and Week 2. It only dropped 44.6% between Weekend 1 and Weekend 2. And that was considered a really good drop! Once upon a time movies wouldn’t drop so drastically between the first and second weekends, but opening weekend matters a lot to movies now and these numbers certainly show that.

The real unicorns are movies like The Greatest Showman, which made headlines a couple of years ago because it actually drastically increased ticket sales between Weekend 1 and Weekend 2. While that movie never won the weekend at the box office, increases and gains in box office between the first and second weekends are nearly unheard of (unless you are talking about stuff that goes from limited to wide release).

Comparing all of these movies is like apples to oranges in a lot of ways given varying budgets and expectations, but why the drop is really important for The Rise of Skywalker can certainly be compared to J.J. Abrams’ other Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, which went on to make over $2 billion worldwide.

Often the last movie in a trilogy is the one people are most excited about, but in the case of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that movie only dropped 40% in its second weekend, going on to be the most popular domestic movie of all time. It had been a long time since we had gotten a Star Wars movie when The Force Awakens came out, and perhaps we can’t blame The Rise of Skywalker for the hype having died down.

However, at the end of the day, the percentages don’t look great for the movie and I don’t think this last movie will come anywhere close to the $2 billion the first movie made. We can blame people being meh on this movie via CinemaScore and also elsewhere on the Internet, we can blame the large influx of Star Wars projects that have come to fruition in recent years. (We’re spoiled really.) We can blame places like China not really being in love with Star Wars. We can blame competition like Jumanji: The Next Level at the box office.

Or we can simply say that while Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker won’t be the behemoth that Star Wars: The Force Awakens was, Disney will still be laughing all the way to the bank with the piles of money this movie will earn. Meanwhile, we’re going to have to wait for some time before another Star Wars movie graces the big screen as Disney shows increased interest in Star Wars projects set for Disney+.

Shop These 11 Products to Support Women-Run Nonprofits

One week into the new year and already feeling like your resolution is doomed? It’s probably time to change strategies. Because if you really want to make this year better than the last, maybe your New Year’s resolution shouldn’t be to focus on yourself. Not a new kind of diet or crazy new workout class, but a resolution to help others and be more philanthropic in 2020.

While there is still a gender gap in the world of nonprofit leadership (like pretty much every other industry), there are a lot of incredible women-run nonprofits doing work for their communities and the world. From Christy Turlington’s Every Mother Counts to Lauren Conrad’s The Little Market, we rounded up our 11 favorite products from women-run nonprofits, below.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Just Made Their First Public Appearance of 2020

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are back to work in London after a six-week break over the holidays.

The royal couple stopped by Canada House in London, in part to thank the staff “for the warm Canadian hospitality and support they received during their recent stay.” The Sussexes spent at least part of their time away from royal duties on Vancouver Island, where they were spotted jogging and hiking. They even stopped to help a couple that was trying to take a photo with a selfie stick. The duke and duchess also released a very adorable new photo of Archie with the gorgeous Canadian scenery in the background.

Fans gathered outside Canada House to greet Markle and Prince Harry. Clearly, so many people are excited to have them back in the public eye—us included.

Markle looked stunning, as usual, in brown tones, including a camel coat that What Meghan Wore has identified as Stella McCartney.

According to royal reporter Omid Scobie, while at Canada House the royals will meet with High Commissioner Janice Charette, visit the Canada Gallery, view a special exhibition by Indigenous Canadian artist Skawennati, and meet members of the team who “work in a range of sectors supporting the partnership between Canada and the U.K.”

Canada is a special place for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Along with being the spot they chose for their recent getaway from the spotlight, Markle lived in Toronto for many years while filming Suits. It’s also where they made their first official public appearance as a couple during the Invictus Games in 2017. Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomed them on their most recent trip with a tweet that said, “Prince Harry, Meghan, and Archie, we’re all wishing you a quiet and blessed stay in Canada. You’re among friends, and always welcome here.”

This engagement at Canada House wasn’t even the duke and duchess’s first stop of the day. “Harry and Meghan are back on duty today and heading to Canada House after a private visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen,” Hello’s Emily Nash reports. “The women there, from the Grenfell community, wrote Together: Our Community Kitchen with the duchess. She wanted to ‘check in’ with them after her break!”

Welcome back, Team Sussex—we’ve missed you!

Taylor Swift Recognized For LGBTQ+ Advocacy With GLAAD Media Vanguard Award

2020 is shaping up to be another big year for Taylor Swift, who will receive the Vanguard Award at this year’s GLAAD Media Awards for being an outspoken ally of the LGBTQ+ community.

In a statement released today (January 7), Sarah Kate Ellis, the CEO and President of GLAAD, announced that Swift will be this year’s honoree. “From boldly standing up against anti-LGBTQ elected officials to shining attention on the urgent need to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination through the Equality Act, Taylor Swift proudly uses her unique ability to influence pop culture to promote LGBTQ acceptance,” Ellis said.

Swift’s single “You Need to Calm Down” is just one example of how she’s advocated for LGBTQ+ rights. In it, she calls for fans to sign her petition for Senate support of the Equality Act while calling out homophobes and shouting out GLAAD, specifically. “Why are you mad? / When you could be GLAAD?” she sings. Her support of the organization and the LGBTQ+ community certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed.

“In a time of political and cultural division, Taylor creates music that unites and calls on her massive fan following to speak up and call for change,” Ellis added. And since the Vanguard Award is given to “allies who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people,” Swift is certainly deserving of this year’s honor.

The “Lover” singer isn’t the only one who will be receiving a special honor at the Awards ceremony this year. Janet Mock — a writer, director, and activist who became the first trans woman of color to write and direct a TV episode on Pose — will receive the Stephen F. Kolzak award, which is given out every year to an LGBTQ member of the media who has worked tirelessly to eliminate homophobia and promote acceptance.

“Janet Mock is a trailblazing force for diverse and inclusive storytelling who has raised the bar for LGBTQ representation in Hollywood,” Ellis said. “She tells stories that need to be told, including those of transgender people and people of color, in revolutionary and eye-opening ways that inspire and enrich.”

The 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards will be held in Los Angeles on April 16. The full list of nominees will be announced on Wednesday, January 8.

The new decade has only just begun, and it’s already filled with so much happy news from celebrities expecting babies in 2020. If this year is anything like 2019, the Hollywood baby boom will keep going strong. America Ferrera ended the year with the announcement of her second child, while Michelle Williams kicked off the new one with a pregnancy, an engagement to Hamilton and Fosse/Verdon director Thomas Kail, and a major Golden Globes speech about women’s choices. Oscar nominee Chloe Sevigny also announced in 2020 that she’s pregnant with her first child.

We can’t wait to see who else announces they are expecting new little bundles of joy as the year goes on. For now, though, here are all the pregnant celebrities you’ll be hearing about in 2020. A big congratulations to all of them is in store.
