Golden Globes: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s Best Jokes (So Far)

2 minute read

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have proved they’re not afraid to poke fun at peers in their previous two Golden Globes monologues, where they’ve made jokes about George Clooney’s tendency to date young and Leonardo DiCaprio’s tendency to date supermodels—and they brought their playful sense of humor back this year for their third (and final) time hosting the awards show.

Here are the duo’s best jokes from the monologue (and check back throughout the night for their best quips from the entire show):

Amy Poehler: “The biggest story in Hollywood this year was when North Korea threatened an attack if Sony Pictures released The Interview, forcing us all to pretend we wanted to see it.”
Tina 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.”

Poehler: “Reese Witherspoon is here, so great in the movie Wild. She did all of her own walking. So brave. And Andy Serkis was great as her backpack.”

Poehler: “J.K. Simmons is here, or as Matthew McConaughey calls him, ‘Just Keep Simmons.’”

Poehler: Boyhood proves that there are still great roles for women over 40 as long as you get hired when you’re under 40.”

Fey: “Steve Carell’s Foxcatcher look took two hours to put on, including his hairstyling and make-up. Just for comparison, it took me three hours today to prepare for my role as human woman.”

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: “In Into the Woods, Cinderella runs from her prince, Rapunzel is thrown from a tower for her prince, and Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby.”
