10 awesome zingers from Golden Globes hosts Amy Poehler, Tina Fey
For the third straight and final year, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will host the Golden Globe awards.
The duo has given viewers many hilarious moments in their past hosting duties, and will surely provide more unforgettable laughs when Golden Globes 2015 takes place on Sunday, January 11 (Monday morning, January 12 in Manila) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
Here are 10 of their great moments onstage so far:
Poor James Franco
In 2011, James Franco hosted the 83rd Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway. Some thought he did a good job, while others, well, they didn't exactly agree.
Fey and Poehler gave their side (as a joke) through what was supposed to be a compliment to Hathaway's performance for her role Les Miserables. But it instead turned into a not-so-subtle comment on Franco.
Stay away from his son!
John Mayer. Harry Styles. Taylor Lautner. Fey and Poehler didn't want Michael J. Fox's son to be the next one on Taylor Swift's list of ex-boyfriends! Uh-uh.

Back in 2013, the duo had this to say about Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow: “Kathryn Bigelow is nominated tonight. I haven’t really been following the controversy over Zero Dark Thirty, but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent 3 years married to James Cameron," said Amy.
James Cameron is known as a demanding and exacting perfectionist in the industry. Skip to the 2:30 mark to see the funny bit.
The real Hunger Games and the Life of Pi(e)
The 2013 Golden Globes took place a little under a year following the release of the first Hunger Games film. Fey gave her own description of what her Hunger Games was, talking about the difficulty of fitting into her dress for the evening.
And Poehler followed that up with a joke of her own as she talked about her plans to binge on some pastry treats following the night's festivities.
Locking lips with Bono
Aside from hosting in 2013, Poehler also won the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Comedy or Musical award for her role in Parks and Recreation. After losing in 2012 and 2013, Poehler was pretty ecstatic about the win, and celebrated in intimate fashion with U2's front man Bono before receiving her award.
"I never win, so I can't believe I won!"
And once she received the trophy, Poehler looked sincerely happy to win. She even providing a nice quote towards the end of her speech.
A special place in hell
Fey started off her speech by congratulating her co-host for the night for her Golden Globes award and joking there was a “special place in hell” for Amy. This appears to be a reference to Taylor’s comment in reaction to Tina’s jokes about Taylor’s love life in a previous Globes awards night.
Quoting Madeleine Albright, Taylor had this to say about the issue to Katie Couric: "There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women."
You know us from TV
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is best known for her roles in Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and Veep - TV shows. So, it was a surprise when she sat at the film section of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. Needless to say, Poehler and Fey noticed her, even if she tried not to notice them.
Well that was… awkward
Okay, maybe not so much. But the only way to pull off a joke that's R-18 such as this one, you have to be either Tina Fey or Amy Poehler.
We've all read about the jokes on George Clooney and his choices to go out with younger women in the past. With the opportunity at hand, Fey and Poehler didn't hesitate to rib the Gravity star about his dating preferences.
That’s all over this year, of course – George married the

Tina and Randy, her 'adult son from a previous relationship'
Tina Fey suddenly popped up onstage to present Randy, a disguised Amy Poehler in a tuxedo, short wig, and sullen expression.
“God, I hate being up here!” said Randy / Amy. “Do you want to go live with your father?” said Tina sternly.
“I can’t, you won’t tell me who he is!” fired back Randy / Amy, running to the audience.
“Mom, is it him? “ (pointing to Idris Elba.) “Is it him?” Randy / Amy asked again. Randy could be seen hugging media heavyweight Harvey Weinstein as the camera cut away.
These are 10 of tons of chuckle-worthy (and occasionally cringe-inducing) moments alike from Tina and Amy. We'll be watching for their latest zingers. Tune in to Rappler's live blog for all the action as it happens.
