Honestly, bandying over the winners of The Golden Globes is a fool’s errand (though it’s nice that an actual comedy got awards in the comedy & or musical category with Borat Subsequent Moviefilm).
The highlight here is awards hosting power duo, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, returning to one of the gigs they were clearly anointed to do, The Golden Globes. Fey and Poehler together balance the right amount of bits, jabs at the HFPA, and asides about the nominees to carry on their celebrated legacy of presiding over the evening’s events.
Interestingly, the very limited in-person audience were all first responders and essential workers, which means you can hear the laughs more clearly and heartily as opposed to it being lost in a sea of celebrities in a gigantic ball room or theater.
Truly, Fey and Poehler should just have a whole special dedicated to hosting awards shows.
