Last night was the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, and if you ask me, they were FULL of technical difficulties! The best part of the entire night was Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s opening monologue. It was hilarious, and went off perfectly, without a single glitch!
Despite their flawless hosting, there were actually a ton of technical issues last night. Problems with the telepromter, problems with winners taking FOREVER to get to the stage. There were lots of issues with last night’s show.
They threw punches at stars like George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and many more. They were hilarious jokes, and none of them seemed to cross the line.
One of the funniest jokes was aimed at Leonardo DiCaprio. When announcing him as a presenter, Tina said, “And now, like a supermodel’s vagina,” she began, “let’s all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio.”
They also made fun of his ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ costar, Jonah Hill. “The Wolf of Wall Street is another nominee tonight,” Poehler said in the duo’s opening monologue. “I really loved the film, but some of it was too graphic. I mean, if I wanted to see Jonah Hill masturbate at a pool party, I’d go to one of Jonah Hill’s pool parties.”
My favorite joke of the night was the one aimed at George Clooney. When announcing Best Motion Picture Drama nominee Gravity, Tina said : “Gravity is nominated for Best Film. It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age [Sandra Bullock].”
Poehler, on Best TV Series Drama nominee Masters of Sex: “Masters of Sex is the degree I got from Boston College.” (This was followed by a high-five between the Parks and Recreation winner and Fey.)
Poehler, on Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie nominee Matt Damon: “Matt Damon is here, for Behind the Candelabra. Matt, on any other night, in any other room, you would be a big deal. But tonight — and don’t take this the wrong way — you’re basically a garbage person.”
Fey, on Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama nominee Matthew McConaughey: “Matthew McConaughey did amazing work this year. For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, he lost 45 pounds. Or what actresses call ‘being in a movie.’”
