Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted this year's ceremony for the final time
Things got off to a pretty punchy start
‘Welcome you bunch of despicably spoiled minimally talented brats’ joked Tina
With a sprinkling of politics
Tina: “Tonight we celebrate the great television shows we know and love as well as all the movies North Korea was OK with.”
“North Korea referred to The Interview as a wanton act of terror, and that wasn’t the worst review the movie got.”
They poked fun at the Hollywood diet
Amy: "Jennifer Aniston is here tonight nominated for the film Cake. We should explain that to the Hollywood people in the room: cake is like a fluffy dessert that people eat on their birthday.
Tina: "And birthdays are things people celebrate when they admit that they have aged."
And excessive red carpet preparation
Tina: “Steve Carell’s Foxcatcher look took two hours to put on, including his hairstyling and make-up. Just for comparison, it took me three hours today to prepare for my role as human woman.”
They even played ‘would you rather’ with some of the male stars in the room
"Would you rather Colin Farrell or Colin Firth?" said Tina.
"Farrell all day" Poehler replied before Tina quipped, "Firth for a polite amount of time"
They joked about best movie winner Boyhood (which was filmed over a 12-year period)
Amy “Patricia Arquette is here for Boyhood. Boyhood proves that there are still roles for women over 40, as long as you’re hired while you’re still under 40.”
And of course the obligatory how-many-awards-has-Meryl-got-now joke
“In Into the Woods Meryl plays a witch who sends the townspeople on a magical quest to get the items she needs to win another Golden Globe.”
But our favourite joke of the night has to be this one
Tina: “George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
