Although it was Amal’s first Golden Globes, that didn’t stop Tina and Amy from poking fun at the newlyweds! “George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year,” Tina began. “Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria and was selected for a three-person UN commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”

And of course, the stars took several jabs at North Korea. "The biggest story in Hollywood this year was when North Korea threatened an attack if Sony released The Interview, forcing us all to pretend we wanted to see it,” Amy said.

Tina added, “North Korea referred to The Interview as ‘absolutely intolerable’ and a ‘wanton act of terror.’ Even more amazing, it's not the worst review the movie got.”
