BEST: Tina and Amy's Monologue
For the past few years, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's opening monologue have not just been the highlight of the Golden Globes; it's been the best part of the awards season overall, in which famous people and industry pomposity get zinged by comic snipers instead of Borscht Belt comedians. Since the duo had said this is the last year they will host the Globes, expectations ran high as to their final introduction — and if it did not quote reach the heights of their previous roasts, their attack this year still did not disappoint. "Welcome, you bunch of despicable, spoiled, minimally talented brats," Fey opened with, and it kept going from there — they landed blows about the many accomplishments of Amal Alamuddin (a.k.a. George Clooney's wife) before grousing that he was the one getting the Lifetime Achievement award, Wes Anderson arriving on a "bicycle made of vintage tuba parts" and, noting Steve Carell's Foxcatcher make-up, that it took Fey three hours to prepare for her part as "human woman." The best, however, was saved for last: a lacerating Bill Cosby riff in which they took turns impersonating the comedian describing how he "gave the PILLS to the PEOPLE." We will miss you more than you know, Tina and Amy.
