It really shouldn't come as a shock that Hollywood would have a grand old time arrogantly mocking God while lifting themselves up as their own god.
The Blaze reports:
Gervais also addressed overly-long thank you speeches — another common component of award shows. The comedian urged winners to limit their list of people they’d like to thank and, in gest, he encouraged them to simply shower praise upon God and their agents.
“You don‘t need to thank everyone you’ve ever met…just do the main two, your agent and God,” he said. ”God and my agent had exactly the same amount of input into my career.”
Considering that he’s an atheist, Gervais was clearly cracking a joke here about the limited impact these parties have had on his successes.
During last night’s show, Meryl Streep also got in on the thank-you-speech joke. The famed actress stunned audiences when she, as Gervais had instructed, thanked her agent and “God” for her award. The only problem? The “God” she was referring to was director Harvey Weinstein (co-founder of Miramax Films).

“I think she's clearly joking but I don't think that there is any, any doubt that they do make men their gods,” Glenn said.
“I don't know if she's a progressive or what she is. I don't really care. But progressives do make men and the system and the administration and I use that not as a White House thing but administration or administrators - their god, that man can become god here on Earth and rule, and help save others. Collective salvation,” he added.
