The 70th Annual Golden Globes just began, and we’re kind of glued to the tv this time, thanks to hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. As expected, they kicked off the ceremony with a funny but classy intro, and–preempting media coverage of
the event women and their dresses–a great tongue-in-cheek diet joke.
Introducing some of the nominees in the audience, they shifted to talking about movie titles. “The Hunger Games,” Fey mentioned, “also what I call the six weeks it took me to get into this dress.” And “Life of Pi,” Poehler added, “which is what I’m gonna call the six weeks after I take this dress off!”
Ha! We’ve already seen more than enough articles about what some women of this year’s Golden Globes do to look great on the red carpet (and television/movies); as awards season presses on, we’re bound to go far beyond saturation point. Thank god for their comic relief.
