Addressing the crowd, Ricky joked: “You're better than ordinary people. You know it and they know it, deep down.

“If we've learned one thing, it's that famous people are above the law, as it should be. I'm not going to get into the terrible things you've done to get here tonight.

"Streep! Clooney! I'm not even looking at Katie Holmes!"

Ricky went on to make fun of John Travolta’s infamous gaffe at the Oscars last year, where he stumbled over ‘Frozen’ actress Idina Menzel’s name as he welcomed her to the stage.

After reading out the names of the nominated actresses, including Quvenzhané Wallis, who was nominated for her role in ‘Annie’, Ricky added: “I've been practicing that last name, so I didn't have a ‘John Travolta moment’. Got away with it.”

For this year’s ceremony, presenting duties went to former ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast members, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, who lampooned Bill Cosby during their monologue.

This marks the second time they have co-hosted the Golden Globes, following their critically-acclaimed stint presenting last year.
