Ricky Gervais doesn't hold back

HE promised not to hold back and he didn't.

Host Ricky Gervais used his five minute opening monologue at this year's Golden Globes ceremony to hassle Eddie Murphy, take the mickey out of Justin Bieber and even mock Johnny Depp again.

"So, where was I?" asked Gervais as he opened his third and final stint hosting the Globes in Los Angeles.

"Tonight you get Britain's biggest comedian, hosting the second biggest awards show, on America's third biggest network ... I'm just kidding, it's the fourth."

Gervais quickly took aim at Murphy, who recently pulled out of hosting the Academy Awards.

"When the man who said, 'Yes' to Norbit says, 'No' to you, you know you're in trouble," he joked.

He then turned his attention to Bieber, bringing up the pop star's recent paternity test.

"The only way Justin Bieber could have impregnanted a girl is if he borrowed one of Martha Stewart's old turkey basters," he said to awkward laughter.

He also took aim at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Helen Mirren and Kim Kardashian. But his worst joke was saved for Jodie Foster and included Mel Gibson jobes and a reference to Foster's movie Beaver.

Then, at the end of his spiel, he introduced Johnny Depp, who he mocked at last year's ceremony for starring in the flop The Tourist.

"Have you seen The Tourist yet?" asked Depp when he arrived on stage.

"No," said an apparently nervous Depp.

Gervais then left the stage, to which Depp stammered, "Oh boy, he's fun."

Gervais' performance was all anyone talked about before the ceremony.

"I'm kind of interested in what Mr Gervais has to say ... I kind of laughed last year," said Ashton Kutcher.

"I know him so I think he's gonna hit me extra hard. He was great last year and he'll be amazing this year too ... I love him," said Jimmy Fallon.

Ryan Seacrest said Gervais didn't stick around on the red carpet.

"I get the impression he doesn't want to run into anyone before the show," he said.
