Tina Fey and Amy Poehler once again made it look easy to rain down snark on the entertainment industry and get them to like it. “Welcome to the annual Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Lee Daniels The Butler’s Golden Globe Awards,” Fey opened — a nod to Warner Bros mockable battle with The Weinstein Company over the right to name a movie The Butler, in which WB insisted it had the right to the title dating back to its 1916 silent comedy short of same name.

Like Ricky Gervais, the guy they replaced, Fey and Poehler seemed to suffer from Second-Year Slump, though sartorially things went much better his year for the First Women of Comedy. They’ll “keep doing it until everybody hates it,” they promised — they’ve already been signed for next year.
Hollywood males got a special skewering this year:
“Matt Damon is here for being in Behind The Candelabra. Any other night in any other room you’d be a big deal. Tonight you’re basically a garbage person.”
Best film nominee Gravity is about “how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die rather than spend another minute with a woman his own age,” Fey said moments later.
“And now, like a supermodel’s vagina, let’s give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio,” Fey snarked as the Wolf Of Wall Street star came out to present an award.
“Matthew McConaughey did amazing work this year. He lost 40 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club – or what actresses call Being In A Movie.”
