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.”
The duo even joked about the sex scandal that has rocked Hollywood. Amy said of Bill Cosby, “In Into the Woods, Cinderella runs from her prince, Rapunzel is thrown from a tower for her prince and Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby.”
Amy even gave some actresses compliments… sort of. Amy said, “Big Eyes is nominated tonight. One of those famous Big Eyes paintings is on display tonight. Let’s check it out.” The camera then cut to Emma Stone! “It’s like it’s cute, but it’s creepy,” Tina added.
Amy also highlighted women’s roles in Hollywood. She said that Patricia Arquette‘s role in the flick Boyhood proves, “that there are still good roles for women over 40 as long as you get hired when you’re under 40.”
Not even seasoned vet Meryl Streep was spared, as Amy said of the Into the Woods star, “Meryl plays a witch who sends the townspeople on a magical quest to collect the items she needs to win another Golden Globe."
The actresses also called out Joaquin Phoenix for being a hypocrite! “Joaquin Phoenix is nominated for Inherent Vice, but obviously he’s isn’t here tonight because he has said publicly that award shows are quote ‘Total and utter bull…'" the camera then cut to the actor as Tina said, “Hey Joaquin! There he is!”
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.”
