After a three-year run as Golden Globes host, Ricky Gervais finally passed the torch to two of the loveliest, funniest ladies in the world, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. We previewed their hosting duties yesterday in the Open Post, and they totally killed it last night – I laughed whenever they were on stage! Here’s their open monologue:
I think the Kathryn Bigelow/James Cameron got the most laughter/groans, but the whole thing was just hilarious. Love the Ben Affleck “You’re not betta than me” Boston joke. Love the “None of us has PLANS to do p0rn” joke. Also: “Quentin Tarantino is here tonight, he stars in all of my sexual nightmares.”
I think the best part of Amy and Tina’s hosting duties was that they weren’t omnipresent – about an hour into the show, I was like “Damn, where are they? I want them to come back and do a bit!” They made you miss them when they weren’t on stage. But I did love the little one-off jokes they sprinkled throughout the show, like after Bill Clinton introduced the clip from Lincoln, and Amy came out and said “OMG, that was Hillary Clinton’s husband!!!” And I loved when Amy and Tina were out in the audience for Best Actress in a Comedy Series – Tina and Jennifer Lopez clutching hands while Amy sat on George Clooney’s lap with a nice cocktail. What’s it going to take for Amy and Clooney to work together, amirite?
Basically, Amy and Tina ROCKED. I hope they get invited back next year to host! Or even better, I hope they get invited to host the Oscars next year!
