…Tina Fey and Amy Poehler! The SNL funnywomen killed it as hosts at the Golden Globes this morning, proving that pretending to be wasted on stage is a lot funnier than actually being wasted on stage. You taking notes, James Franco?

Hey, Ben Affleck won Best Director! Did you see that Academy Awards? Affleck’s win here but surprising lack of nomination at the Oscars can’t be doing much to boost the public’s flagging opinion of Hollywood’s biggest awards show. Whereas last week’s Oscar nominations were filled with quite a few headscratchers, the Golden Globes pretty much went to script. All the big contenders that you’d expect to win, did.
The show was not without its drama though. But by drama, I’m not talking about the shock and horror kind, but rather the tugging at the heart strings kind, as Jodie Foster was honoured with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, and used the opportunity to not only come out as a lesbian, publicly and officially for the first time, but also compare herself to Honey Boo Boo. Yeah, it was that kind of speech. At the end of it, there were many a teary eye in the audience, but also, if Jamie Foxx’s face was any indication, many a broken brain, as some tried to make sense of Foster’s sometimes rambling, stream of consciousness speech.
All in all, I think it was a rather successful show, with the Hollywood Foreign Press all voting rather sensibly, and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing an amazing job. Seriously, can we just have them host EVERYTHING from now on?
