Tonight was a great night for the ladies in Hollywood, or as Amy Poehler put it, “only at the Golden Globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people in television.”
While I may not big on Hollywood, I am big on these two funny ladies!!! My comic role models hosted the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, and they were armed with some side-splitting zingers: “When it comes to torture, I trust the woman who spent three years married to James Cameron,” and, “I have not seen someone so alone and abandoned like that since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars” (to Anne Hathaway).
Many great wins and nominations for some seriously fierce ladies, with Lena Dunham taking home two Globes for Girls. “This award is for every woman who didn’t think there was a space for her. I found my space.”
Jodi Foster received the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement, although her speech left a lot of people confused. Did she officially come out? Was it a retirement speech? Considering her plea for privacy, I guess we’re still left wondering. And it’s really none of our business anyway.
Kristen Wiig & Will Ferrell were absolutely hilarious! I really hope Amy & Tina come back to host again, but if they don’t I would love to see these two co-host in their place.
My only complaint of the night was not enough Amy & Tina; so much talent, so little joke time! But what they did get in was pure comedic genius: Damien Francisco in Dog President; Darcy St. Fudge starring as “a psychic who solves her own murder,” and “Hilary Clinton’s husband!” Sigh. In the meantime, I’ll just have to go back to my Parks & Recreation marathon, drawing portraits as I laugh…
I will leave you with Amy’s last crack as she was signing off for the night: “We’re going home with Jodie Foster! Goodnight!”
