8:05PM - 8:10PM -- Here are some of the highlights from their opening monologue:
--Tina and Amy totally go there with the Bill Cosby jokes. First they talk about "Into the Woods" and how Sleeping Beauty really just thought she was having coffee with Bill Cosby. Then they hilariously try to imitate him, saying, "Put the pills in the PEOPLE!" Too soon or spot on?
--The two BFFs also play a hysterical game of Who'd You Rather?, calling out two actors they'd want to have sex with. The best? "Colin Farrell or Colin Firth" Amy says, "Farrell all day long," while Tina replies, "Firth for a polite amount of time."
--Tina: "Hello all you despicable, spoiled, minimally talented brats!... We are celebrating all the movies North Korea were okay with!"
--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: “North Korea referred to 'The Interview' as 'absolutely intolerable' and a 'wanton act of terror.' Even more amazing, not the worst review the movie got.”
--Tina: "Oprah is here! And she's put cranberry candles under all your seats!"
--Amy: "Reese Witherspoon did all her own walking in 'Wild.' So brave. And Andy Serkis was great as her backpack.”
--Tina: 'Selma' is the movie about the Civil Rights march in the '60s, which totally worked and now everything is fine."
--Amy: "Steve Carell plays a paranoid, murderous billionaire in 'Foxcatcher,' but in real life, he is really a paranoid, murderous MILLIONAIRE." A great reaction from Carell in the audience." Tina adds, “Steve Carell's 'Foxcatcher' look took two hours to put on, including his hairstyling and make-up. Just for comparison, it took me three hours today to prepare for my role as human woman."
--After listing all of Amal Clooney's amazing accomplishments as a humanitarian and diplomat, Tina adds, "And her HUSBAND is winning a Lifetime Achievement award... only in Hollywood."
--Amy: "It's great to see Patricia Arquette here! She's nominated for "Boyhood," which proves that there are great roles for women over 40 so long as you are hired under 40."
--Amy: "I didn't like 'Gone Girl.' I go to movies to escape, not to see myself on the big screen."
8:00PM - Tina and Amy come onto the Globes stage for their third and final time!
