On the Today show on Tuesday, Amy Poehler explained that this coming Golden Globes will be her and Tina Fey’s last time hosting the awards. “It’s law of diminishing returns, which is why this is our last time,” Poehler said. “Unless you want to be a perennial host, there’s nowhere to go but down.”

This year’s Golden Globes will be remembered for many things, from Tina and Amy’s triumphant return as hosts to teleprompter fails and a couple of very long walks to the stage.
One such walk early in the night led to one of the most memorable moments of the show, when Jacqueline Bisset won the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Starz’s Dancing on the Edge. Bisset was sitting toward the back of the ballroom inside the Beverly Hilton and took a while to get to the stage to accept the award, where the truly memorable and bizarre part began.
Bisset sat down with Queen Latifah on her daytime talk show to explain the moment, which Latifah called “one of the most authentic moments of the night.” Apparently, Bisset was told her award was being presented toward the end of the night, and after being on the red carpet for over two hours, she was tired, thirsty, and hungry. “I’m thinking about other things, vaguely listening to the show. I’m thinking, ‘Why the hell I didn’t get my dinner?'”

I took way too many photos of my TV screen during the Golden Globes. Some of them made the cut. (Who can say what “some” means, really?) Join me in a visual adventure through Tina and Amy’s gladiating, Martin Scorsese’s unbridled enthusiasm at a vagina joke, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ gluttony, and more: READ FULL STORY
Best from backstage at the Golden Globes: Leo on Marty, Bono on Mandela, plus Jennifer Lawrence, more
The best way to interview a celebrity? After they’ve won an award. Backstage at the Golden Globes, the parade of celebs — including A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and even U2 — were more than happy to greet the press and answer any and all questions.
Read on for some of our favorite quotes from the free-for-all press room:
Leonardo DiCaprio (winner — Best Actor, Drama for The Wolf of Wall Street) on Martin Scorsese and getting obsessed with his Wolf role:
I’m just thankful that Marty Scorsese is still as punk-rock, still as vital at 71 years old.
I stopped this film and it was like a giant adrenaline dump. I haven’t been able to work since, really. It was a phenomenal experience. Making movies is an interesting process. You put your entire life on hold. And these characters really do envelop you, for better or for worse. So, thank God none of the attributes of this character rubbed off on my real life, because I probably wouldn’t be standing here today.
Bono (winner, with U2 for Best Song “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), on understanding Mandela:
There’s a few firsts, but the most powerful was to be with the great man on Robbin Island and hearing his voice crack as he spoke about his experience spending so much time on Robbin Island. And few so stoic and so kind of dismissive of his own pain. The first moment in our entire relationship that I saw him just lose it was on Robbin Island, and I’m not sure if you know this, but Mr. Mandela from cutting rocks on Robbin Island of salt had lost the use of his tear ducts. So this great man through all this historical triumph, was unable to cry. And in 2004 he had an operation to fix his tear ducts. It just so struck us on that occasion. It was very emotional on Robbin Island. And to be on the island with for Edge and myself is something we’ll never forget.

Woody Allen’s tribute at the Golden Globes attracted many fans — most notably Diane Keaton, who sang the Girl Scout theme song mid-way through congratulating him. But not everyone was willing to celebrate the Oscar-winning director.
Ex Mia Farrow went the joking route while making clear she wouldn’t be watching, tweeting, “Time to grab some icecream & switch over to
Ronan Farrow, Allen and Farrow’s biological child (Or is he?), went with some sharper comments: “Missed the Woody Allen tribute – did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?” (Mia Farrow then retweeted this message.) READ FULL STORY
Will Jennifer Lawrence make a charming speech? Will Amy Poehler crack you up? Will Ricky Gervais drunk-rush the stage, demanding what he sees as rightfully his?
It’s anyone’s guess what will go down tonight during the Golden Globes, often noted by the attendees as the most fun and laid-back awards show of the year. After all, this is the one — according to Amy Poehler’s monologue from last year’s ceremony — “Where the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people from TV.”
Since you won’t be heading to the Globes this year, PopWatch has broken down all the likely phrases and jokes you’ll be hearing when your favorite ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take to the Globes stage tonight at 8 p.m. ET. Obviously, PopWatch cautions you to celebrate responsibly. Pace yourself; this whole show is — oh my God, it’s three hours long, and that’s not including any pre-carpet gown judging you partake in.

My favorite awards show is the Golden Globes, specifically because the Golden Globes are completely unbeholden by the intrinsic questions of Quality and Tradition and Making Basic Coherent Sense that so bedevils other awarding bodies. Nobody really thinks the Golden Globes mean anything, and so the mere fact of their continued existence — and increasing popularity — actually grade-inflates them into meaning something. They are handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a group of people who could frankly be Norwegian lizard-men for all we know. But the lizard-men throw a great show. They feed people booze. The sheer inauthenticity of the event seems to loosen up celebrities, in a way that actually encourages authenticity.

Want to hear something funny? These are this year’s Golden Globe nominees for Best Comedy or Musical: American Hustle, Her, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska, and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Some of these you probably haven’t seen yet, but you’d be right to suspect that they aren’t exactly knee-slappers. (Your nostrils will be safe from soda when you eventually watch them.) In fact, they’re dramas and romances, albeit ones that might be slightly more offbeat or idiosyncratic than their Best Drama brethren. “Here’s the good news,” says Anchorman 2 director Adam McKay, “they’re fantastic movies on the list. But we were joking that between all those [Best Comedy nominees], there’s probably, like, nine laughs.”
“I thought This Is the End was a really original, raucous, edgy, great comedy. Why have the category if you’re not going to use it?” he added. “The good news is none of us got into comedy expecting awards, so I don’t really care that much…but we were kind of laughing. They finally give us a category, and now they’ve just pushed us out of it.”

Several sleepy stars are already reacting to today’s big news — their Golden Globe nominations. See statements from celebs including Matthew McConaughey, Kerry Washington, and Amy Adams below; we’ll update this post as more pour in.
Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor, Drama, for Dallas Buyers Club): “I’m excited and honored that the HFPA has recognized my performance in Dallas Buyers Club. Ron Woodroof was a revolutionary for the human spirit, and I was blessed to tell his story. I’m looking forward to spending the evening at the Golden Globes on January 12th.”
Kerry Washington (Best Actress in a TV series, Drama, for Scandal): “I’m enormously grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this honor. It’s humbling to be nominated alongside such talented and hard-working women whose work inspires me.”
Amy Adams (Best Actress, Comedy or Musical, for American Hustle): “I am so honored that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has recognized my work alongside such brilliant actresses. Also a huge congrats to the amazing writers, directors, and casts of American Hustle and Her for their nominations. Truly a day for gratitude.”
Acronym mix-ups and stumbles over teleprompter intros were the comic relief of Tuesday’s Hollywood Foreign Press Association luncheon, where a host of bold-faced names from film and TV gathered to accept grants for various arts-related philanthropic organizations.
“If anything’s been made clear to me today, it’s definitely the fact that I don’t think a single actor in Hollywood can read,” Jonah Hill joked while accepting a grant for four Los Angeles film organizations, including American Cinematheque and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Hill — who was one of the few who didn’t stumble over his speech – saved the day after a slew of screw ups from the likes of Dermot Mulroney and Piper Perabo, Olivia Wilde, Julie Delpy, and Demian Bichir — who mispronounced the word Chicano while introducing a grant for various L.A. educational institutions. “How can you screw that up?” the event’s emcee Eva Longoria ribbed. “It’s Chicano Studies! You’re Mexican!”
But it was all in good fun. Longoria was quick to point out that at this event — unlike the famously bacchanalian bash the organization puts on in January each year, the Golden Globes — “Nobody’s drunk, there are typos in the teleprompter!”
Slurred words aside, the event brought together stars from all walks of Hollywood, from Vince Vaughn to Liam Hemsworth to 1950s star Marcia Hunt, at the Beverly Hilton to celebrate some of their favorite causes.
