The hosts of the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, did not disappoint in their opening segment, as they touched upon sensitive topics such as Bill Cosby rape allegations and Sony hacking.
Here are a few gems from their opening monologue:
Talking about the movie "Into The Woods" Poehler joked that "Cinderella ran away from her prince, Rapunzel was thrown from a tower... and Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby."
Her co-host soon chimed in, and added that Cosby finally spoke out about the allegations saying, "I put the pills in the people! The people did not want the pills in them!" Poehler added her own Cosby impression and said: "No, Tina, hey. That's not right. That's not right. It's more like, 'I got the pills in the bathrobe and I put 'em in the people!'"
Fey responded, "You're right, it's got to be, like, 'I put the pills in the hoagie.' That's fair."
The duo also spoke about the Sony hacking scandal and said that North Korea threatening an attack if "The Interview" was released only added to the film's appeal.
Poehler: "The biggest story in Hollywood was when North Korea threatened an attack if Sony released The Interview, forcing us all to pretend we wanted to see it."
Fey:"North Korea referred to 'The Interview' as 'absolutely intolerable' and a 'wanton act of terror.' Even more amazing, not the worst review the movie got."
As expected, newly married couple George and Amal Clooney was also not spared. Here is what Fey had to say about Clooney being awarded a lifetime achievement award.
Fey: "George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser 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."
Poehler on "Boyhood": ";Boyhood' proves that there are still great roles for women over 40 as long as you get hired when you're under 40."
