10 reasons why Tina Fey, Amy Poehler won Golden Globes 2014
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took the gold again. For a second year, these funny ladies were the most-est as co-hosts of NBC's Golden Globes party.
Fey explained their return engagement by noting, "This is Hollywood, and if something kind of works they'll just keep doing it until everybody hates it."
Not these returnees, who again presided with seeming effortless sass and hardly a joke off-target. During their shared opening routine, Fey's zinger about George Clooney and his penchant for dating younger women may have been the most riotously received wisecrack in recent awards-cast history.
1. Tina Fey calls out George Clooney's dating record
Tina Fey: "Gravity is nominated for Best Film. It's the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die then to spend one more minute with a woman his own age."
2. Calling out Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus for her switch from TV to film
Tina Fey: "Our friend Julia Louis-Dreyfus has two nominations tonight! One for Veep and her first film nomination, for Enough Said."
Amy Poehler: "Interestingly, Julia has chosen to sit in the film section tonight."
Both: "Hi, Julia! Hi Julia! You know us from TV."
Amy Poehler: "Gosh, she has really changed."
Tina Fey: "She's gross."
3. On nude scenes in The Wolf of Wall Street
Amy Poehler: "The Wolf of Wall Street is another nominee tonight. I really loved the film, but some of it was too graphic. I mean, if I wanted to see Jonah Hill masturbate at a pool party, I'd go to one of Jonah Hill's pool parties."
4. On Hollywood's standards for skinny women
Tina Fey: "Matthew McConaughey did amazing work this year. For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, he lost 45 pounds. Or what actresses call being in a movie."
5. On the importance of limousine drivers
Amy Poehler: "Before earning a Golden Globe nomination for his first ever acting role in Captain Phillips, Barkhad Abdi was working as a limousine driver in Minnesota. There's such a beautiful life lesson here, everyone: Sleep with your limo driver tonight. Before he gets famous."
6. On a good college education:
Amy Poehler: "Masters of Sex is the degree I got from Boston College."
7. On film and technology:
Amy Poehler: "A lot of nominated shows this year are actually on Netflix. House of Cards.Orange Is the New Black. Enjoy it while it lasts, Netflix. Because you're not going to be feeling so smug in a couple of years when SnapChat is up here accepting Best Drama."
8. On the hairstyles in American Hustle:
Tina Fey: "Bradley Cooper is here, star of American Hustle! Interesting trivia: The original title of that movie was The Explosion at the Wig Factory."
9. On the similarities between Hollywood and home improvement:
Tina: "The Wolf of Wall Street shocked viewers by using the F-word 506 times in three hours. Which is the new record. Unless you count my dad trying to hang some curtains rods in our living room."
10. On Leonardo DiCaprio's fondness for supermodels:
Tina Fey: "And now, like a supermodel's vagina, let's all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio."
