Tina Fey & Amy Poehler’s Globe Opening Was Perfect
As I’m sure many of you already know, this year marks the third and most likely final time Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Golden Globe Awards. So, keeping that in mind, it was only natural to suspect these leading ladies of comedy would want to go out with a bang. And boy-oh-boy did they not disappoint. During Fey and Poehler’s opening monologue, these two made sure this would be a night to remember by bravely tackling some pretty poignant issues that have dominated the entertainment industry as of late and putting a tasteful comedic spin on it as only these SNL vets could. Suffice to say, they killed it.
It’s pretty amazing, actually. You’d think that after being put up on a hosting pedestal the past two years, the only direction you’d be able to go is down. Not these ladies, though. They just leave us all wanting more each and every year. Granted, I really shouldn’t be all that surprised given who we’re talking about. I mean, do these two have ANY flaws? Neil Patrick Harris may be widely praised for his hosting duties and Lord knows he can rock a musical number like nobody’s business. However, when it comes to true comedic gold, this dynamic duo has the magic touch.
But let’s get down to specifics, shall we? Walking out on stage as vision in white and purple dresses — one just as stunning as the other — Fey and Poehler came out with both sets of arms swinging, covering the likes of North Korea, George Clooney's marriage, and yes, even Bill Cosby. So just in case you want to re-live any of that legendary Fey and Poehler charm, here are some highlights from the 2015 Golden Globe Awards opener for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
- They both acknowledged the many incredible movies that took place over this past year or rather "All the movies North Korea was OK with."
- Speaking of The Interview, the pair also jokingly thanked North Korea for "forcing us to pretend we wanted to see it."
- "Boyhood proves there's still great movies for women over 40 as long as you're cast when you're still under 40.
- On describing to Hollywood the gloriousness of Cake: "Cake is like a fluffy dessert that people eat on their birthdays."
- Listing Amal Alamuddin's many wonderful achievements throughout her life, while noting that her husband, George Clooney was the one receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.
- A quick game of "Who Would You Rather?" Poehler likes it "Ruffalo."
- On Into the Woods: "Sleeping beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby."
- Not to mention that they are now responsible for introducing Rachel Green to Benedict present. BLESS YOU!
