Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: Golden Girls of the Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: Golden Girls of the Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned Sunday night to host the Golden Globes awards on NBC, and they stuck pretty much to last year’s routine. Their introductory remarks worked through the movie and television categories with funny, precise jokes that were sometimes lightly pointed commentary, sometimes just stupid fun.

Lightly pointed commentary: Saluting Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club, Fey said, “He lost 45 pounds, or what actresses call being in a movie.”

Stupid fun: Saluting Kerry Washington, they simultaneously turned to a side camera and whispered: “Scandal!”

Later in the show, Poehler came out dressed as Mr. Golden Globe – Tina Fey’s grumpy teenage son, Randy. Randy should host the Oscars.

It would be nice even to have Fey and Poehler at the Pearly Gates, as adjuncts to St. Peter, so that whoever is turned away and hurled down into the fires of hell won’t feel so bad.

As for the three-hour broadcast, the show itself wasn’t much different from being on an airport walkway: Once you got on it, it moved along smoothly, effortlessly and for what seemed like a long time.

Some odds and ends:

• Jacqueline Bisset, whose table must have been in a separate wing of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, had an endless walk to the stage, then when she finally got there couldn’t seem to get her speech started (she had won supporting actress in a TV miniseries, Dancing on the Edge). Yet when she eventually did start sputtering a grab bag of comments, she nonetheless delivered it with a star’s bravura. Then she was played off.

• In fact, the orchestra seemed ready to play off just about everyone (“Can people at home hear this music,” Cate Blanchett asked at night’s end, winning for Blue Jasmine). But the winners quickly wised up to the fact that you should keep talking, anyway, and just imagine you were drowning out an annoying cellphone conversation that happened to be an orchestra.

• Aaron Paul, speaking on behalf of the Breaking Bad crew after it won for best TV drama series, was left to give a speech, which was: “Yeah, bitch! Thank you!” That, fans of the show know, is the closing line from the poem “Ozymandias.”

• After an unusually bad compendium of clips from the movies of Woody Allen, Oscar-winner Diane Keaton accepted a lifetime achievement award on his behalf. Discussing her long personal and professional relationship with Allen, she ended by singing the sweet little old song: “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, and the other’s gold.” Jennifer Lawrence can live to 110, and she will never be able to do that. Maybe she shouldn’t, but still, she won’t be able to.

• Emma Thompson, handing out the award for best screenplay, arrived on stage in party mode, with a cocktail in one hand and her shoes in the other. She has the greatest midcareer hairstyle I have ever seen.

• Presenter Melissa McCarthy pretended to have been hit on the head with a sandbag and was under the impression she was Matt Damon. It made no sense, but who cares?

• In the television awards, the biggest surprises were FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-nine’s win as best TV comedy, and Andy Samberg’s as best actor, TV comedy, for that show. Both fully deserved – it’s a terrific sitcom – but still unexpected.

• Did Kerry Washington win best TV actress for the ABC drama Scandal, as I hoped? No. She never seems to win, as I hope. It was Robin Wright for her cool, hard and admittedly exemplary work in Netflix’s House of Cards.

Leonardo DiCaprio, presenting the award for best actress in a movie drama, pronounced Philomena “Philomania.” Judi Dench probably would have turned that down.

No One Had More Fun at the Golden Globes Than the Saturday Night Alive Alums

Golden Globes 2014: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg

There were a lot of uncomfortable moments at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, from Jacqueline Bisset’s rambling acceptance speech to Diane Keaton’s impromptu serenade for Woody Allen, recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

But amid the nervous looks and awkward laughter, there was a specific set of stars who couldn’t have had a better night: the former faces of Saturday Night Live.

In addition to hosting, Amy Poehler took home a best comedic TV actress Golden Globe for her role on Parks & Recreation, an honor she celebrated by making out with Bono. “Wow, I was not prepared for this!” she said onstage. “I’ve never won anything like this.”

Shortly before her, Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Andy Samberg scored a Golden Globe of his own for best TV comedic actor, a moment made even sweeter when it was presented to him by Seth Meyers. Echoing Poehler’s comments about being unprepared, the comedian quipped of his win, “It wasn’t gonna happen.”

Not to be upstaged by their winning counterparts, the non-nominated SNL stars also made the most of their time onstage, with Jimmy Fallon continuing the gag that Poehler and Tina Fey started in their monologue, ribbing Matt Damon. Fallon presented alongside Melissa McCarthy, who pretended to impersonate the Behind the Candelabra star after a backstage accident left her confused about her identity and proceeded to shout-out Damon’s “beautiful wife.”

Soon-to-be Late Night host Meyers joined his co-presenter, Julie Bowen, in promising the Hollywood Foreign Press Association “favors” in exchange for a nomination next year. “We get how this works,” he said to the HFPA, “and we’re ready to play ball … We can do stuff to each other and you can just watch.”

But there’s no topping the enthusiasm of Fey and Poehler, who proved the joke’s on the audience by landing whip-smart jabs at the many in attendance, including Taylor Swift. “I love you and there’s a special place in hell for you,” the 30 Rock scribe quipped to her best friend following her Globe win, a clever reference to comments the singer made last year when the hosts needled her about her dating.

Amy Poehler Gets Frisky with Bono During Golden Globes Win: Watch the Clip

01/12/2014 at 10:35 PM EST

The Golden Globes are notorious for being a freewheeling affair – and Amy Poehler clearly took that to heart.

The Parks and Recreation star, who was up for best actress in a TV series, musical or comedy, mugged it up big time as the nominees for her category were announced. And she roped in none other than Bono to help out with the gag.

As Poehler’s name was read as a nominee, the camera cut to the actress getting cozy with the U2 rocker as, feigning anxiety, she sat on his lap while receiving a frisky shoulder rub from Bono.

But the biggest surprise was reserved for Poehler herself, who actually won the award.

As the audience erupted into wild cheers and applause, Poehler, 42, pretended to make out with Bono, 53, who cheerfully played along with the cheeky charade.

“Wow, I was not prepared for this!” a flustered Poehler said when she finally hightailed it onstage to accept her award. “I’ve never won anything like this.”

Talk about belly laughs!

Elsa Pataky cracks up as Chris Hemsworth shows off her bump Sunday on the Golden Globes red carpet.

The actress, 37, wore a Paula Ka embellished dress, paired with a clutch from Jimmy Choo and a ring from EF Collection.

The pair, who are expecting their second child this summer, announced the pregnancy in November. They’re already parents to daughter India Rose, 19 months.

The Thor star, 30, recently told PEOPLE that “being a father is certainly a task, but the best one that I could ever ask for. Being home, being with the family, that’s what it’s about.”
