Amy Poehler and Tina Fey shine as hosts of Golden Globes

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosted the 70th annual Golden Globes, and getting the audience to laugh wasn’t their only accomplishment of the night. The comedians also dressed to impress. According to People magazine, Poehler donned a black tuxedo jacket and capri pants over a shirt with a plunging neckline. She accessorized with a dazzling necklace​ andstrappyblack heels. Fey also looked terrific in a black and white strapless dress, which she wore with glistening drop earrings.

There were many highlights from Poehler and Fey’s opening monologue, including Poehler’s first quip comparing movies and television.

“The Golden Globes, where the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television,” Poehler joked.

Poehler kept it up throughout the monologue, cracking arguably the funniest – or at least most talked about – jokes about Katherine Bigalow’s​ “Zero Dark Thirty,” which was up for Best Picture and Bigalow for Best Director.

“I haven’t really been following the controversy over ‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to [director] James Cameron,” Poehler cracked.

“The Parks and Recreation” star was not the only one with the ammunition- Fey had people laughing as well. Fey was introducing Anne Hathaway, who ended up winning Best Actress for her role in “Les Miserables.” The comedian praised the actress’s talent, but she still added a little quip of her own.

“I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned like that since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars,” Fey said.

Many can agree that Fey and Poehler were stars of the show. The only complaint by many was there the two were not out there enough.
