During last night’s The Sound of Music Live!, NBC debuted the first promo for the 2014 Golden Globes. Unlike Carrie Underwood’s wooden acting, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are two of my favorite things. The comedic BFFs return for their second time hosting the funnest awards show of the year. Earlier this year, the duo signed on for two more hosting stints after their well-reviewed debut as Globes hosts.
In the clip, Amy is on piano duties while Tina attempts to give a preview of their opening number. Unfortunately, they’re off-key and can’t harmonize. While musically they never hit the right note, I have no doubt they will hit all the perfect comedic notes come Golden Globes night. The 71st annual Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC on January 12, 2014. This year’s Miss Golden Globe is Sosie Bacon- daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. Watch the promo below.
Best decision by NBC in recent memory. The peacock network announced Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host the 71st and 72nd annual Golden Globes. Truly amazing.
“We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.” – A spokesperson for NBC said in a statement
After last year’s sensational performance, I couldn’t be anymore excited. Those ladies killed it. One person who’s probably not feeling this development is Taylor Swift. She didn’t appreciate being the butt of one of their jokes during last year’s telecast. Poehler’s rep jokingly tweeted, “Sorry @taylorswift13 but Amy & Tina will be back for the next two @goldenglobes.” I’m betting the “22″ singer stays clear from this year’s event ;)
Just in case you forgot how hilarious the 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation actress were on the 70th annual show, I’ve embedded their best moments below. The 2014 Golden Globes will be held in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 12.
If you read my post about the gay couple being asked to leave a shopping mall due to PDA, you know I referred to that incident as one of the most ridiculous things I’ve read recently. Correction. This insane comment by Taylor is now officially the most absurd thing I’ve read.
At this year’s Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler teased Taylor Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son. Apparently, T. Swizzle can’t take a joke. The 23-year-old singer revealed to Vanity Fair that the slam at her was an act against feminism. LOL.
“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,’” – Taylor Swift
Totally cuckoo right? I’m sure this situation isn’t one where Couric would think the quote is applicable. Out of all the jokes delivered by Fey and Poehler that night, the one directed at Swift was the least offensive.
So, let me get this straight. It’s okay for her to write songs thinly-disguised as tell-alls about her various liaisons, but it’s not right for others to call her out on it. Someone needs to take themselves less seriously. Swift also goes on to say that the fact that she’s so open in her lyrics should be celebrated, not ridiculed.
“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her,” she says, “I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.” – Taylor Swift
Last night, the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place, hosted by the hilarious Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The duo made such a great team, I only wish there had been more of them! There were several very funny moments throughout the night, as well as some touching moments such Jody Foster’s acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Another of my favorite parts of the night was when Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell were presenters together. I was laughing my head off. I’m not sure what was with Tommy Lee Jones’ stank face during that portion of the evening, but whatever. I also loved when Adele won for “Skyfall” and they cut to Taylor Swift’s “less than impressed” face.
I watched the Awards show at Donovan & Brian‘s house along with some Homorazzi cast members and some of our other friends. As you may already know, we had made some predictions as to who we thought would win. I’ve included the results of those predictions within the list of winners below. I’m just going to put it out there right away, I suck at these types of predictions and totally lost. LOL.
Coming up later this month are the 70th Annual Golden Globes hosted by the hilarious besties, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Not too long ago, the duo released their first promo which had them talking in old Hollywood accents – oh those two.
In this new interview-style promo, the two talk about why they wanted to host the Golden Globes in the first place, who they are interested in seeing, and who they are hoping wins Best Picture. At first they say Avatar (not having a clue about any actual current movies), but then Fey reveals that she’d like to be the first person to win Best Picture… just her, on her own. LOL.
Poehler & Fey say that they enjoy the Golden Globes because it’s a “sloppy, loud party” where “beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the horrible, disgusting people of television.” Enjoy the funny 2-minute promo below.
A week after the Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, two videos from very opposing camps hit the internet. First you have celebrities asking in a PSA, “How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners?” Demand A Plan is a grassroots initiative to mobilize Americans to DEMAND a plan to end gun violence from Congress and President Obama. Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Selena Gomez, John Hamm, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and many, many more lend their voices to the PSA.
Coincidentally on the same day, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre, held a live press conference. LaPierre claims the media is to blame for the shootings and not guns. He explains that the entertainment industry makes “the filthiest form of pornography,” citing violent music videos and films Natural Born Killers and American Psycho. He further goes on to say that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” His most controversial comment that has celebrities on Twitter in a tizzy is his claim that had armed guards been at Sandy Hook, innocent lives would’ve been spared that day. Check out both vids below.
As you probably know, the hilarious dynamic duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Not only are they hosting, but they’re both nominated in the same category for “Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical.” The two ladies are up against Zooey Deschanel in New Girl, Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Veep, and Lena Dunham in Girls. Any predictions as to who you think we’ll take the win?
The nominations were just released today (stay tuned for the lists which Donovan will be posting) and also the first promo starring the two hilarious hosts. Looking glamourous as you can see from the still above, Fey & Poehler decide to channel classic Hollywood accents in the promo and vow to speak in those accents for all their banter…but then they realize…
I can’t wait to see these ladies hosting together – such a perfect choice! The 70th Annual Golden Globes takes place live on Sunday, January 13 on NBC. Watch the promo video below.
This coming January 2013 is Vanity Fair‘s first ever comedy issue and it’s guest edited by Judd Apatow. For the issue, Apatow brought together his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio. There are three different covers to this issue, with four different comedians looking fabulously funny on each. I’ve included all three of them below and you can vote for which one you like best.
This is only the third time since Graydon Carter became the editor of the magazine 20 years ago that someone has been a guest editor. The last guest editor was Bono when he guest-edited the Africa issue in July of 2007. Before that, Tom Ford guest-edited a Hollywood Portfolio in March of 2006. With the comedy genre booming these days, Carter felt like it was the perfect time for such an issue and that Judd Apatow was the perfect choice for the job.
In the first cover shown above, Jim Carrey is dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph is doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell is done up like a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Check out the other two covers below, featuring comedians like Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and more.
