Amy Poehler & Tina Fey Have Updated Their Golden Globes Drinking Game For You All
If you were a willing and excited participant of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's Golden Globes drinking game when they hosted the awards show last year, good news! The drinking game is officially back, and it's even got a few new categories this year. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter to promote the Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler revealed exactly what those categories are — in addition to revealing that 2009's Avatar is their favorite to win at this year's ceremony, and why they won't comment on Seth MacFarlane's "boob song" at the Oscars.
On the new drinking game categories:
Last year you invented a Golden Globes drinking game for us. Are there any new categories this year?
Fey: Any time you see a gown with sleeves, you're going to drink. Any time they cut to Tom Hanks for a reaction shot, do five push-ups and you will be ripped by the end of the ceremony.
Poehler: So now I'm just writing a joke for you that I might want to use for the show. How about this for a drinking game? Every time I drink, everybody at home should drink. And if Bryan Cranston speaks, everybody has to do a little bit of meth. Just a touch, because that's all you need, just a touch.
Got that? Good. We're all going to be so drunk.
On whether or not NBC's Sound of Music Live! success will influence the Golden Globes this year:
NBC is now the Sound of Music network. Are you getting any pressure to do the whole show as a live musical number?
Poehler: OK, I see what you're doing, you're going to set up jokes. I'm not falling for that. I didn't say any of that. I've worked at NBC for 12 years so I'm happy they had a successful night of TV.
Fey: We're going to do most of Sweeney Todd but we're going to fit it in so it seems like a natural part of the show. It's exciting because we're going to kill a bunch of movie stars. That doesn't sound right at all.
Poehler: You never know. We may just break into spontaneous song. Yeah, I'm going to play Todd.
On Seth MacFarlane's boob song at the Oscars last year:
There was some carping about Seth MacFarlane's Oscar hosting performance last year. What did you think of the "boobs" song?
Fey: If Seth MacFarlane answered a question about how he thought my bit was, I'd be furious. So I would never weigh in on somebody else's bit. It's not my burden to defend it or attack it. It's not my problem.
Poehler: It's so hard to host. I don't want to comment on anybody else's performance. Why would you think that we would say anything about anybody's performance if we're getting ready to do our own? It's a hard to job to host anything. Period.
On what movie they're rooting for this year:
Have you seen all of the nominated movies? Anything you're rooting for?
Poehler: I think it would be funny if I came out in an August: Osage County sweatshirt. It would be funny to just be really rooting for one movie. But I haven't seen them all. Right now, I'm rooting forAvatar. I know it's crazy, but I think Avatar could really pull it out this year. So I'm putting my money on Avatar.
On the fact that Kate Winslet is not yet 40:
Virtually all the best actress drama nominees are over 40 -- Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench, Emma Thompson -- and Kate Winslet is almost 40. She's 38.
Fey: Oh my God, Kate Winslet is still not 40! That is just rude.
Excited yet? Good. You should be. These two ladies are the best thing to happen to award shows in just about ever. You can check out the full interview (which is absolutely worth a read) here. The Golden Globe awards will air live on NBC on Jan. 11.
