Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are determined to make sure viewers enjoy this year’s awards show – no matter how many meatball subs and cocktails it takes.
The comedic duo proposed rules for a Golden Globes drinking game during a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
It's fitting considering the Globes is known for being the liveliest awards show of the season.
“It’s a tough crowd because it’s a lot of nervous people waiting to see if they win or lose, and as the night goes on, the losers outnumber the winners,” Poehler told THR. “But having been in a lot of those awards shows, the Golden Globes are more fun because you can drink. It’s just that easy.”
And as Fey notes, “When you get a bunch of people in a room who don’t eat much, and you give them one drink, it gets good fast.”
Fey and Poehler’s drinking game differs from the one “Bridesmaids” co-stars Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy proposed onstage at the 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards: Drink any time someone says Martin Scorsese.
But given “Boardwalk Empire’s” two nominations - for best drama and best actor - it couldn’t hurt to play both versions when the Globes air on Sunday, January 13, right?
