Last night marked the 70th Golden Globes hosted by ‘SNL’ alumni Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Even during their opening monologue, the two had the audience in stitches from laughter. They set the tone early on and never looked back, which set the pace for the entire awards show.

At times awards shows can be long and drawn out with viewers changing channels between certain categories. We found ourselves glued to the TV, as we didn’t want to miss any of the (what seemed to be) spontaneous humor. Tina and Amy brought a fresh vibe to the show, jokes were tasteful, may have hit just below the belt, but were made all in good fun. Going off their experience from live late night sketch comedy (‘SNL’) at time Tina and Amy sat in for actors/actresses which weren’t at the show, but did so while wearing wigs, costumes, glasses and at one time, fake teeth.

However, our favourite moment of the night was when former ‘SNL’ cast members (see a trend here?) Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell presented together. The two played it off as they were improvising the introductions to the movies being presented and botched each movies respective plots, as they had no idea what the movies were, as they didn’t watch any in the category. The two went on to create events that may have occurred in the movie based on its title.

One of the most heart-felt and greatest moments of the night was when Jodie Foster was honoured with the Cecil B. Demille award for her career in film. Twitter was a frenzy later that night as many had seen that as her “coming out” speech. It was a touching speech from an on screen living legend and if it didn’t touch a nerve in you, then frankly, you may not be human.

 

Big winners of the night were Ben Affleck for ‘Argo’ and Anne Hathaway for her role in ‘Les Miserables’. Hugh Jackman also took home a Golden Globe for his work in ‘Les Miserables’ along with Daniel-Day Lewis for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in ‘Lincoln’.

  1. The James Franco joke was the funniest bit of the night. The best Intro speech went to Clinton. You can see that he was WAAAAY more comfortable on stage than any of the actors. The best acceptance speech went to Daniel Day-Lewis with Damien Lewis and Hugh Jackman as runners up. Overall slightly lack-lustre, I like a little more Pizazz like the Tony’s.

    The HFP need to re-think comedy/musical, because those two genres and not mutually inclusive, (if that means what i think it means). Maybe they could break it up into 2 nights (TV and Movie) which will leave room to split the comedy/musical category AND have a little time for a music/dance number.
