Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Send Up ‘The Interview’, Bill Cosby And George Clooney At Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globe Awards for the third and final time last night (January 11), which is a real shame because the duo were as amusing and likeable as ever – something which eluded Ricky Gervais when he hosted from 2010-12. Their opening monologue aimed zingers at The Interview, Bill Cosby and the plethora of British actors playing Americans in films, but it was their feminist take-down of George Clooney’s lifetime achievement award that provided the biggest belly laugh.

“George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year,” Fey explained. “Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor 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.” Brilliant. Watch their opening monologue in full below.
