Golden Globe hosts, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are getting rave reviews for their performance hosting the Golden Globes last night. Time magazine said, "Tina Fey and Amy Poehler damn sure made it look easy.
The duo...managed to turn in a performance that was hilarious without overshadowing the show, pointed without being mean-spirited and surprising without trying too hard.
Their hosting was simply funny, well-delivered and accessible both to the Globes crowd and the home audience–something that might seem simple but is clearly anything but."
Among the many funny lines, was this one about comedian Ricky Gervais' controversial stint as Globes host for the past three years, "We want to assure you that we have no intention of being edgy or offensive tonight," Poehler declared, "because, as Ricky learned the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show TWO MORE TIMES!"
