Recap of the 2015 Golden Globes with GIFs!

Is it just me, or were the 2015 Golden Globes really boring? I think it’s because there wasn’t enough Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. They started the show with a solid monologue, but then I think the Globes were running so behind on time (thanks to long-ass speeches) that they had to cut a lot of their other material. BOOOOO. This is why nobody likes you, Golden Globes.

My favorite jokes of the evening include the Sony hack, how George Clooney was being recognized for a lifetime achievement award when his wife is much more successful, and, of course, Bill Cosby.

  • Amy: “The biggest story in Hollywood this year was when North Korea threatened an attack if Sony Pictures released The Interview, forcing us all to pretend we wanted to see it.”
  • Tina: “George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
  • Amy: “Cinderella ran away from her prince, Rapunzel was thrown from a tower…and Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby.”

And now, let’s enjoy some GIFs of other funny moments. Like when Amy and Tina said Emma Stone was a painting from Big Eyes.

Margaret Cho (the comedian who guest-starred on 30 Rock as Kim Jong-Il) helped Amy and Tina make North Korea jokes, including getting a photo with her favorite actor, Meryl Streep. And then Benedict Cumberbatch totally photobombed that photo.

Prince showed up to present an award looking fly as shit, and people went crazy, especially Viola Davis and Allison Janney.

Chrissy Teigen couldn’t hold it together when her husband, John Legend, won Best Original Song for Selma‘s “Glory.” And it meme’d.
