5 Best Lines: 'The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards'

Here are the five best lines delivered by host Ricky Gervais during THE 73RD ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS:

"The Catholic Church are furious about the film ("Spotlight"), as it exposes the fact that 5 percent of all their priests have repeatedly molested children and been allowed to continue to work without punishment. Roman Polanski called it the best date movie ever."

"It's only right that NBC hosts this awards show. They’re the only network that’s truly fair and impartial, and that’s because they’re the only network with zero nominations. So ... nothing in it for 'em tonight. They don’t care, obviously."

"One publication said me hosting would mean some film stars would stay away for fear of being made fun of. As if film stars would stay away from a chance of getting a Golden Globe — particularly if their film company has already paid for it."

"I've changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously. Now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she's had. She became a role model for trans people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn't do a lot for women drivers, but you can't have everything, can ya?"

"To be fair 'The Martian' was a lot funnier than 'Pixels,' but then again, so was 'Schindler's List.'"
