Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had high expectations to live up to as hosts of the Golden Globes, and their opening monologue didn't disappoint.
"Only at the Golden Globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television," Poehler quipped after the introductions were out of the way.
She assured the audience that there would only be good-natured jokes during the broadcast, because as the more biting Ricky Gervais has shown, "when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host the show two more times."
(Gervais couldn't attend the ceremony, Fey said, "because hes' technically no longer in showbiz.")
But that didn't mean they kept all of the jokes squeaky clean. On the "Zero Dark Thirty" controversy, Poehler cracked that she hadn't been following it closely, but "when it comes to torture, I trust a lady who spent three years married to James Cameron."
And while complimenting Anne Hathaway on her Globes- and Oscar-nominated performance in "Les Misérables," Fey said with appropriate awe, "I have not seen someone totally alone and abandoned like that since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars."
The audience seemed to love it, although the gasps were audible with the James Cameron comment. What did you think of their opening monologue?
only 1 1/2 octive down..amazing she was 66 here–still want to do 2006 ending kay..gotta run...bb

I think that She assured the audience that there would only be good natures jokes during the broadcast, because as the more biting Ricky Gervais has shown,...... "when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host the show two more times, ahhhhaaannnn
tina's a mental mess
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did a great job with the opening monologue, and I really hope that they are signed on to do the 2014 Golden Globes. They ribbed the celebrities fairly well without ruffling any feather, well except for James Cameron. Some of my DISH coworkers said that it would’ve been better if Gervais was there to poke fun at the hosts and himself, but maybe he’ll be back for next year. I missed the award’s show live, but saw it last night since it was recorded on my DISH Hopper through PrimeTime Anytime. I didn’t need to worry about missing the Golden Globes live since my DVR automatically records four hours of the four major networks during primetime on Sundays.
EXCELLENT JOB DONE BY THE LADIES!
Well I give them 1 credit of finally ending the show exactly 3 hours – couldn't take any more of their nonsense. The lines were funny – not them. I prefer a 1-show host next time.....and what's with the girl who could barely walk in her shoes – it was suffering enough making us watch her try to get to the stage without pulling down everyone with her.
Wow, people with different opinions. How unique,
What would have been really funny is if about 100 pounds of smelly turds got dropped on them on stage.
Ladypower,Tina and Amy-the best thing in the land.I thought you were great.I champion irreverence whenever possible.I've even infected my son with it,and he's one of the funniest people I've ever known.The hell with everyone else-just keep doing what you're doing.
Some of you people need to lighten up and stop being so miserable all the time. For starters, you might stop clicking on stories about celebrities that you supposedly can't stand.
Tina and Amy R D shiznit! Don't diss these ladies for doing their job, give them credit 4 doing it great!
Don't get what your point is. Unfunny is unfunny.
i love tina fey (photo above) she's smart, intelligent, attractive, amazing actress and most of
all a classy woman.
her man must be so proud to have her on his arm.
words to live by mary
They are the bomb all the trolls insulting them have IQ's of 3 so take it from whence it comes.
Excuse me b! Tch but I'm proud to say my IQ is a ten! Thank you!
who's tina fey –nobody cares.
You must be Sarah Palin.
lol! Funny to post a comment about "who cares," when you obviously care! LOL!
I don't get their humor. Both are not funny, sorry. On SNL their only good spots were as cohosts of SNL news. And that was just TelePrompTer script reading that others wrote.
You are aware that Tina Fey was the head writer at SNL, right?
Let me back up Jeff here by saying: YOU ARE AWARE THAT TINA FEY WAS HEAD WRITER AT SNL, RIGHT?
Holding drinks in their hands, and at end saying they will go home with Jodi? So this is supposed to be great comedy? Gimme a break. Just dumb.
Tina Fey is so accomplished as both a writer and an actress...what have you done in your useless life that would allow you to make such a comment???
Sarah really, really cares (a lot, a lot)
Sarah cares a lot
Time to change your panties, Panties :-/
