This is why we love these two funny ladies. They don’t hold back, roasting everyone from Bill Cosby to ‘The Interview’ and George Clooney.
That’s right the duo left no superstar unscathed, during their opening monologue at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards, which opened with Fey delivering the warmest of introductions:
“Good evening, good evening, and welcome you bunch of despicable, spoiled, minimally talented brats”
The two comedians – who announced this would be their last year hosting the awards show – took the time to turn their attention to the crowd. Poehler praised Reese Witherspoon for doing all of her own walking in Wild, Fey took aim at George Clooney, mentioning the actor’s recent marriage to Amal Alamuddin, saying…
“Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three person UN commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a Lifetime Achievement Award!”
Poehler and Fey then divvied up Hollywood’s hottest men in a quick game of “Who Would You Rather”.
And Proving nothing is sacred, Fey and Poehler then offered an alternative plot line for ‘Into the Woods’ in which Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby.
This is the third year the two have hosted the awards. Their friendship and chemistry have spurred a fun, irreverent, and sharp brand of humor that seamlessly fits the casual vibe of The Globes. Tonight was no exception.
