The 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards were broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel and produced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to host the awards for the their third consecutive year, and the last year of their contract. Their monologue was as hilarious as ever and poked fun at the Sony Hack, the fact that George Clooney is getting a lifetime achievement award when his wife, Amal, probably deserves one more, the Cosby sexual assault allegations, and much more. Here’s hoping they are asked to host again very soon, or move up to hosting the Oscars.
The night included a surprise appearance by Prince, and Margaret Cho dressing up as the newest member of the HFPA, a North Korean journalist, taking a picture with Meryl Streep, and commenting on the show’s quality as well as Orange is the New Black‘s placement into the comedy category. Bill Hader and Kristin Wiig cracked themselves up quoting not-so-famous movie lines from various films before presenting the award for Best Screenplay and Tina Fey looked great in a tuxedo.
Heading into the awards, Birdman led the way with the most film nominations, seven, followed by Boyhood and The Imitation Game which each had five nominations and Fargo held the most television nominations with five.
