Recap of the 2013 Golden Globes with GIFS!

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it, dudes. Can they please just host everything from now on?


When you have two hosts with years and years of experience doing improv, live sketch comedy, and writing, it’s hard to go wrong—especially when those two hosts are smart, quirky, and look damn sexy in their gowns. Unlike former Globes host and comedian Ricky Gervais, Fey and Poehler made some awesome zingers without pissing people off (except maybe Taylor Swift, but who really cares). So here’s a quick look at some of their best jokes throughout the night:

  • Tina: “Ricky Gervais could not be here tonight because he is no longer technically in show business.”
  • Amy: “Kathryn Bigelow’s 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 three years married to James Cameron.”
  • Tina “Anne Hathaway, you gave a stunning performance in Les Miserables. I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned like that since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars.”
  • Amy: “Meryl Streep is not here tonight. She has the flu—and I hear she’s amazing in it.”

Now, as you may recall from my prediction post, I made my selections for who I thought would win in the film categories with my first guesses in orange and my second guesses in green. For this post, I’ve ranked my guesses with either 1) Nailed It, 2) Missed It By That Much, or 3) Well, Shit. Let’s take a quick look at how I did with some hilarious GIFs I found to represent each category.
