Golden Globes 2013: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler nail their opening monologue
The "Saturday Night Live" alumni and real-life BFFs pretty much killed their opening monologue (duologue?) at Sunday's (Jan. 13) show. Some highlights from their remarks:
Fey: "I wish you could feel the excitement in the room ..."
Poehler: "Yes, you can smell the pills from here."
Fey: "Ricky Gervais couldn't be here tonight, because he's technically no longer in show business."
Poehler: "When you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host the show two more times."
Fey, to "Girls" creator/star Lena Dunham: "If they're forcing you to do all that nudity, just tell us. Give us a signal ... and we'll call child services for you."
Poehler, on "Zero Dark Thirty" director Kathryn Bigelow: "I haven't been following the controversy surrounding 'Zero Dark Thirty,' but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron."
Fey, on Anne Hathaway's "Les Miserables" performance: "I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars."
Poehler: " Meryl Streep is not here tonight. She has the flu -- and I hear she's amazing in it."
