Jodie Foster (kind of) addresses her sexuality at the Golden Globes

JODIE-FOSTER

Did Jodie Foster publicly come out for the first time at the Golden Globes?

While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award at the show, she feigned as if she was going to make a public disclosure about her personal life. (Full transcript below.) But then… READ FULL STORY

Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig's amusing Golden Globes presentation -- VIDEO

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Saturday Night Live cohorts Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig showed up at this year’s Golden Globes to turn the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy into a Weekend Update-style sketch comedy bit. Essentially repurposing her and Fred Armisen’s purposefully terrible improvisation as unprepared singers Garth and Kat, Wiig joined Ferrell to stumble hilariously through each nominated film pretending to know what each was about. Naturally, some titles (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) were a little more helpful than others (Quartet). Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's best Golden Globes jokes -- Read them here!

GG-SHOW-FEY-POEHLER

Ricky Gervais may be the one that got all the feigned gasps with his celebrity-ribbing monologues the past couple years, but gal pals and partners in prime-time Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had more than a little bite in their Golden Globes opening. Starting off with a guaranteed-to-be-accurate subject—making fun of the assembled celebrities’ inevitable intoxication, saying “You can smell the pills from here”—they then gave a sarcastic nod to their predecessor before moving on down the list of all the famous faces in the crowd just waiting for someone to cut to them. Here are some of the highlights and check back for their jokes throughout the night:

PopWatch Planner: Globes glitter, 'Fringe' fades, and A$AP Rocky jams

If it feels like everything’s happening earlier than usual this year, you’re not wrong. With Oscar nominations already in the bag and the Golden Globes set for tonight, we’re chugging through awards season and it’s still only mid-January! There will be plenty of red carpet looks to keep you going this week, with the Globes followed by the Sundance Film Festival kicking off in chilly Park City, Utah. In between, stay tuned for an exciting week on Top Chef and the end of a beloved series in Fringe, topped off with Rob Lowe playing the sexiest lawyer around in Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

The best awards show category ever: The Golden Globe for Best Supporting TV Actor and Actress

There are many off-the-wall awards show categories, like the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Face of Heroism (which Jennifer Lawrence won this week for The Hunger Games), or the MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss (which Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have won for four years running). But my absolute favorite awards show category is far and away the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor and Actress in a TV Series, Miniseries, or TV Film.

Nowhere else can one enjoy the silly spectacle of actors in half-hour network sitcoms (Sean Hayes, Neil Patrick Harris, Megan Mullally) pitted against actors in multi-hour pay cable miniseries (Jeffrey Wright, Tom Wilkinson, Mary-Louise Parker). It’s crazy and awesome in equal measure, like a dadaist satire of the entire institution of televised awards shows that also happens to be completely real. READ FULL STORY

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: The BFF duo's 11 best onscreen moments

Can anything get in the way of Lincoln‘s momentum? Could Smash possibly upset the Best TV Show — Comedy or Musical category? Who cares! The real reason to watch the Golden Globes this Sunday is to see three glorious hours of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing what they do best: Hanging out together and making us laugh.

Ever since meeting in an improv class nearly 20 years ago — back when Tina “had only recently learned that you can pluck your eyebrows” and Amy got $15 dye jobs that made her hair “the color of white lined paper” — Pohler and Fey have enjoyed a best-friendship that’s the envy of non-Tinas and Amys everywhere. (2012’s Night of Too Many Stars even auctioned off the chance to be the pair’s third BFF for the night; the winner, predictably, had an amazing time.) Naturally, the pair frequently work together onscreen — proving that as funny as they are individually, Amy and Tina are better together.

So here’s a chronological list of their greatest clips — starting with one of SNL‘s best commercial parodies: READ FULL STORY

Golden Globe hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on Angelina Jolie, 'Avatar,' photo bombing -- VIDEO

As if we needed further proof that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the best at everything and should always be talking on our TVs always always. The upcoming hosts of the 70th Annual Golden Globe awards took the time out of their day being witty whilst wearing gorgeous gowns to discuss their impending job, photobombing Harrison Ford, hating everyone, and who they think will win the award for “Best Actress in a mini-musical or major documentary.” (It’s a shocker!)

Women have the last laugh! About time TWO gals such as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler host the Globes

Back in 2007, late great Vanity Fair writer Christopher Hitchens irked oodles of women, and men, in a meandering article, asking, “Why are women, who have the whole male world at their mercy, not funny?” A slew of others have followed suit over the years. Former Man Show host Adam Carolla sniped to the New York Post in June, “The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks.”

Tell that to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the newly minted co-hosts of next year’s Golden Globe Awards.

NBC, Dick Clark Productions and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association named the Saturday Night Live alums on Monday as hostesses of the 70th annual awards ceremony, set to air live Jan. 13, 2013 in Beverly Hills.

While Ricky Gervais spread his feisty, punchy, spitfire brand of Brit humor for the past three years as a popular, yet feared, host of the boozy show, next year’s telecast marks the very first time a duo of gals will host the Globes, the HFPA confirmed to EW. There have been previous female co-hosts such as Raquel Welch, in 1985, who co-hosted with Michael York, and Joan Collins and Wayne Rogers in 1983, but no solo female hosts either.

So why should this, two women hosting, and specifically Fey and Poehler, be celebrated, cheered, yelled from rooftops, if one’s energetic enough? READ FULL STORY

If Ricky Gervais doesn't host the Golden Globes, who should?

golden-globes-ricky-gervais

Ricky Gervais has made friends and enemies these past three years hosting the Golden Globe Awards, with his penchant for feisty, frisky barbs and tongue-in-cheek British wit, but who else could fill the comedian’s shoes as host of the most fun awards show of the season?

“As of now, there are currently no plans for Ricky to host,” a rep from Gervais’ agent William Morris tells EW.com. Following Tuesday’s announcement from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that next year’s 70th annual Globes, airing live on NBC, will take place on Jan. 13, 2013, the field is open for an array of would-be hosts. Here are a few of our suggestions:

Claire Danes is Hasty Pudding's Woman of the Year

She may have gone to Yale, but this week Claire Danes will be at Harvard, as the Hasty Pudding Theatricals crown her Woman of the Year. On January 26 she will lead a parade through Cambridge, followed by the presentation of the Pudding Pot at the annual roast. The Man of the Year has not yet been announced. Last year, Julianne Moore and Jay Leno were Woman and Man of the Year, respectively. Other pairings of past years include Anne Hathaway and Justin Timberlake, Scarlett Johanssen and Christopher Walken, and Renee Zellweger and James Franco.

The Hasty Pudding Theatricals were founded in 1795 and have been doling out the title of Woman of the Year since 1951, when Gertrude Lawrence was honored. For a look back on previous men and women who’ve been deemed worthy of the society’s highest honor, check out the history of Hasty Pudding.

Danes recently won the best actress in a TV series (Drama) Golden Globe for her role in the Showtime series Homeland.
