Quick Click: Highlights from the Golden Globes Include Drunken Moments and Angry Actors
Posted 01.16.13 by Ryan
The fashion, the stars, the speeches...whatever your reason was for watching the Golden Globes on Sunday, it was all on display in the telecast. From the deft hosting by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (the bar has been raised, Seth MacFarlane) to the sincere, yet sometimes awkward speeches, there were plenty of highlights from last night's Globes ceremony, which, thankfully, we have compiled right here for you.
Where else to begin but the opening monologue, with Fey and Poehler skewering many of the night's nominees — perhaps best with a line about Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow's ex-husband, James Cameron. Let's just say we doubt Cameron will be contacting Poehler about a role in Avatar 2 anytime soon.
Both Fey and Poehler remained on fire all night, particularly for a bit where they admittedly got "sloppy," but not more so than Glenn Close.
Later, fellow SNL alumni Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig announced the winner of the Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical by first pretending(?) not to know much about the nominees, a bit that amused the entire theater (with the notable exception of Tommy Lee Jones, who seemed to be enjoying it about as much as watching his house burn down).
Sacha Baron Cohen also got into the act, doing his best impersonation of former Globes host Ricky Gervais by taking some serious jabs at his Les Miserables co-stars Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway.
Honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award was Jodie Foster, whose speech declared a great many things, but, most importantly, that Foster "would continue to tell stories."
