Tina & Amy rock the Globes...

"Welcome to everyone here this evening, 
and to all the women and gay men watching at home…"

As expected, on their second outing as Golden Globe Awards hosts, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did an amazing job… here are their best lines from the open to the show:

“Matt Damon is here for Behind the Candelabra. Matt, on any other night in another room, you would be a big deal. But tonight, and don’t take this the wrong way, you’re basically a garbage person.”

“Meryl Streep, so brilliant in August: Osage County, proving that there are still great parts in Hollywood for Meryl Streeps over 60.”

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.”

“Matthew McConaughey is here. For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, he lost 45 pounds, or what actresses call ‘being in a movie.’”

The Wolf of Wall Street is a big nominee tonight. I really love 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.”

(Amy) “One of the most nominated films this year is 12 Years a Slave. I loved 12 Years a Slave, and I can honestly say that after seeing that film, I will never look at slavery the same way again.”
(Tina) “Wait — how were you looking at it?”

Fey and Poehler are already signed up to host again next year… and have set the bar pretty high for Ellen DeGeneres at the upcoming Oscars!
