2014 GOLDEN GLOBES Recap: Tina & Amy, GIFS galore, Best & Worst Dressed, and more!

image

The Globies were in full force last night—booze! hot dogs! vagina jokes!—and it was one of the weirder, more fun events in years. 

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler predictably fucking killed it. They just owned the shit out of the whole night. Jokes were spot on, bits were too, and they looked amazing. All in all, another successful night of hosting under their belts. 

The night was full of weird speeches, barefoot actresses, and strange actor cutaways from the camera team. Below are some of the best moments from the show (some that you saw and some that you didn’t!): 

This:

image

When Idris Elba was flawless and swoon-worthy by doing this right at us: 

image

When Aaron Paul gave us what might be one of the last YEAH BITCHes ever: 

image

When the camera cut to the Boring Sisters. SNOOOOOOZEEE

image

THIS: 

image

Also THIS, when Seth was SO EXCITED to see his friend Andy Samberg win for Brooklyn Nine-Nine. 

image

And then Jennifer Lawrence kissed her boo Nichols Hoult, and everyone’s hearts just exploded: 

image

Don’t we all want to be her?

image

This face happened on the red carpet. It happened real hard: 

image

Oh, and when Diane Keaton was FLAWLESS: 

image

And then when Amy Poehler finally one a Globe for her unrivaled work on Parks and Rec (and made out with Bono):

image

image

And at the after-parties, Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender had a tiny dance party. I’M SERIOUS. It was amazing, clearly: 

image

Remember when Bono was like, so NOT having it when Diddy tried to hug him? 

image

SCANDAL!

image

Basically everything Tina and Amy did. Ever. 

image

And now onto the fashion! 

BEST DRESSED has to go to 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’o. I MEAN. WHAT. Is she even of this earth? 

image

Lupita Nyong’o - Beyond breathtaking. 

And the rest of the best: 

image

Taylor Swift

image

Reese Witherspoon

image

Emma Watson - FLAWLESS. 

image

Olivia Wilde

image

Cate Blanchett

image

Amy Adams - keeping the titties alive since the 70s. 

image

Kate Beckinsale

image

Margot Robbie

image

LIzzie Caplan - her hair could have been much better, but THIS DRESS.

And the WORST DRESSED goes to: 

image

She usually knocks it out of the park. What in the hell is this? 

The rest of the worst: 

image

NO. 

image

I’m sorry, are you a teacher? A librarian? What is this? Toss the oxford shirt and the dress would have been simple but still pretty. 

image

We are all tired of your princess act Kaley. Try something different. 

image

This suits her pretty well in that it’s tacky and kind of annoying to look at. 

There were a few ‘mehs’, too. These looks fall into the ‘I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either’ category:

image

She’s worn worse, and she’s worn better.  I like it, and the idea of a crop top formal gown, but it’s just okay. 

image

I actually didn’t mind this one that much. It’s pretty. Almost too plain, but still nice. 

image

She would have been a real knockout in this color if she had kept her hair red. With that blonde ‘do she gets washed out in this champagne number. 

image

I don’t hate it. I don’t love it. I think she’s just saving up her real killers for the SAG Awards and the Oscars. 

image

I like it a lot, but the longer I look at it the more I think it looks too stiff. 

image

She has done SO well in the past. I think this is too old, too slouchy in the butt, too plain. She can do better, and I’m sure she will at the Oscars.

Tina Fey and her 30 ROCK team to helm new female-centric comedy for NBC

TIna Fey is at it again: she’s on track to produce a new female-centric workplace comedy for NBC. She’ll tackle the new show with her 30 Rock showrunner Robert Carlock and writer-producer Coleen McGuinness. 

A new show created by Fey to fill the post-30 Rock void? SIGN ME UP. 

No other details have emerged except for the rather vague logline:in the vein of Cheers, is a character-driven workplace comedy where a young woman in search of reconnecting with her father finds a new home and family on Fire Island.”  (via Deadline)

LATE NIGHT Real Talk: Let’s discuss what women should take over the LATE NIGHT throne

Now that it’s been announced that Jimmy Fallon is slated to take over The Tonight Show after Jay Leno abdicates the throne in 2014, talk has been laser focused on who should replace Fallon on Late Night.

Names are being thrown around like Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, and John Mulaney, among others. But what about the women? Having successfully broken into the male dominated world of talk shows, female comedians like Chelsea Handler and Ellen DeGeneres have paved the way for other women to join in the talk show shenanigans. But among the discussions of what funnyman should replace Fallon in when he heads to Tonight, the names of funny ladies to take that same place are few and far between. What gives? It’s not like we’re lacking in brilliantly funny and charismatic women. There are plenty of women who could easily follow in Fallon’s footsteps and make television history, and I’ve decided to pick a few that I think would be amazing replacements. 

image

Kristen Wiig
Sure, she’s been increasingly busy with film roles since her departure from SNL, but I can hardly think of another woman who could be better suited for this role. She’s got a killer following thanks to 7 amazing years at Saturday Night Live, and shot to superstar status with her role in Bridesmaids. She’s wicked funny and no afraid of physical comedy, and she’s used to performing for large audiences. 

image


Maya Rudolph
Maya’s had her hand in a variety of different projects since leaving SNL in 2007, including indie flicks (Away We Go), blockbusters (Bridesmaids), and weekly sitcoms (Up All Night). She’s musically inclined—a trait Fallon uses on a nearly daily basis—and she’s a pro at many different impressions (let’s not forget her dead ringer Versace impersonation). Not to mention, she’s also classy as fuck. And now that Up All Night is all but dead, this would be a great new project for her. 

image

Chelsea Peretti
While you may not recognize this name instantly, you will definitely recognize her work. Peretti has made a name for herself in the comedy world by writing for hit comedies like The Sarah Silverman Program, Parks and Rec, and the new Comedy Central show The Kroll Show. She’s wildly inappropriate (and unashamed about it), and she is no stranger to crossing lines for the sake of a laugh. She’s also familiar with appearing on camera, having guest starred on shows like Louie and Parks and Rec. Plus, she’s got a strong background in standup with the added bonus of writing tons of killer comedy. 

image

Amy Poehler
Selfishly I wouldn’t really put her on this list, as taking on the task of hosting Late Night would likely cause her to leave a huge hole in my heart when she inevitably leaves Parks and Rec. However, Amy’s wackadoodle brand of zany comedy is a natural fit. I’ve also never met a single person in my entire life who has spoken ill of this woman. I would marry her and have her babies in a heartbeat. She’s got undeniable charisma and charm, and I don’t think I’ve every heard her tell a joke that didn’t land. She’d be perfect. 

image

Ellen
Yes, this is a long shot. I have no doubt in my mind that Ellen would ever leave her cushy (and fantastic) daytime talk show gig. After all, she’s won countless Emmys and has a following unlike any other woman on TV. That being said, she would be a flat-out natural to follow in Fallon’s footsteps. If there was ever a woman poised join the ranks of Letterman, Carson, Leno, et all, it would be her. Again, this is a long shot, but I just had to include her. It’s Ellen for crying out loud! 

image

Sarah Silverman
Crass? Yes. Hilarious? Of course. Silverman has had her fair share of TV shows come and go, so it would be nice to see her get one that actually stuck. Though I enjoy her unique brand of offensive humor, she might not have the built-in fanbase that ladies like Wiig or Poehler have. She is a hard pill to swallow for some, but she would give the boys of late night a run for their money when it came to down and dirty snark. 

image

Tina Fey
Dear Mother Fey, I bow down in your presence. This is a real long shot too, but I’d be kidding if I thought Fey wouldn’t own the shit out of a Late Night gig. She’s flawlessly brilliant, she’s fiercely witty, and she ain’t afraid of breaking through a glass ceiling or suit-wielding boys club. She can multitask better than anyone, and if she hadn’t found happiness with successful bouts as an actress, writer/producer/director, or best-selling author, the entire world would welcome her with open arms every night at 10:35. She’s the one I would most like to see in this role, but I also know that is merely but a pipedream. 

image

Caitlin Moran
This British gem is a wildcard. She’s crazy as fuck, but in the best possible way. She’s tangoed with Lady Gaga, she’s interviewed the Prime Minister. She’s worked her ass off writing for numerous publications, and is probably the most comfortable with interviewing subjects out of any other woman on this list. She’s also got a huge audience of Brits and Americans alike, and her tendency to skew more feminist than say, Maya Rudolph or Ellen, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Her strong opinions would be a welcome change to the monotony of a male-centric environment. 

image

Tig Notaro
I consider Tig Notaro to be one of the funniest women on the planet. If you haven’t seen or listened to her standup, you are why I hate most humans. She’s is honest as hell, making her comedy fresh and relatable. She’s full of sharp observations and even sharper jokes, and if dry humor is your thing, this is your lady. Notaro has worked her way up to the top ranks of the comedy world, garnering tons of appraise from a legendary set at Largo in LA. She is constantly kicking ass and taking names, and she’s got great relationships with other comedy giants in the biz, like Conan O’Brien and Louis CK. She’s beyond brilliant and beyond funny, something Late Night could really get used to. 

So what’s it gonna be? Are the ladies going to get a say in the new face of Late Night? Isn’t it about time? 

Who do you think would be a good replacement for Jimmy?

Tina Fey joins Jason Bateman for comedy THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU

Does this news make you all warm and fuzzy inside? No? THEN STFU. 

No, but seriously. Bateman + Fey in a family comedy? Yes please. 

Tina Fey continues filling up her busy post-30 Rock schedule with another killer-sounding role, this one as an older sister to Bateman in the family-centric film This is Where I Leave You. 

The film features Bateman as the one grown sibling keeping the large family together at their childhood home after their father passes away. Fey will play one of the sisters, with the other siblings still yet to be cast. 

This is Where I Leave You will be directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Date Night), so it has about a 50/50 chance of being really shitty. I would hope that with the beginnings of a killer cast, he could step up his A-game and give us something closer to Date Night, and something less like the upcoming shitshow that is sure to be The Internship.

Tina Fey to team with PITCH PERFECT director for sister comedy THE NEST

So, 30 Rock is done, Bossypants is a best-seller, and Mean Girls: The Musical might be a thing that exists in our near future. But WHAT ELSE should Tina Fey be up to? 

If “creating more comedy gold” is what you said, then you’re right. The brilliant Tina Fey, fresh off 30 Rock's successful 7-year run on NBC, has a new comedy in her sights with The Nest. The film revolves around two 30something sisters who decide to spend one last weekend in their family home before their parents sell it (read: hilarity ensues, obvs.). As if the premise doesn’t sound great enough (particularly with Fey’s involvement), the film is also set to be directed by Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore. So, yeah. Expect laughs on laughs on laughs people! 

Now if only we could get Amy Poehler with a dye job or Kristen Wiig to play her sister and we’d be fucking SET, y’all.

2013 Golden Globes Recap: Bits, Surprises, and Best & Worst Dressed

First things first, my girls killed it last night. I mean, absofuckinglutely killed it. If you missed it (SHAME ON YOU), I beg you to watch their opening monologue now. 

In what was one of the best telecasts in a very long time (for many reasons, which I’ll get to) Tina Fey and Amy Poehler confirmed what everyone was thinking, which was “We are the best. We fucking rule. We are the best and we’re gonna fucking own this shit.” 

The awards themselves were more lively than in years past, due in large part to the amazing rapport between the two funny ladies. But not to be outdone, the actual winners of the evening proved to be just as entertaining. There were many a surprise to be had (Ben Affleck! Argo!), many an epic speech to be spoken (Jodie Foster! Christoph Waltz!), and many a joke to be had (Jennifer Lawrence’s “I beat Meryl!”, Tina and Amy’s running fake nominee gag). Simply put, this was without a doubt the best Globes in quite a long time. 

Two of my favorite moments of the night were Tina and Amy’s fake nominee bits, both equally hilarious and amazing, and the sight of Amy Poehler in George Clooney’s lap canoodling like it was going out of style.

Like I said, they killed it.

Watch the trailer for Tina Fey and Paul Rudd’s ADMISSION

Gotta love any day that ends with a new Tina Fey trailer! 

Admission tells the story of a Princeton admissions counselor (Fey) who has to deal with some old demons when she visits an old friend (Rudd) at an experimental school he runs. And by old demons, I mean a teenager who may or may not be the kid she gave up for adoption when she was in college. 

With the likes of Rudd and Fey, one would assume this film would be laugh out loud hilarious, but you can tell from this trailer that this is very much a dramedy. Both Rudd and Fey have the acting chops to carry a less-than-slapstick movie, that’s for sure, and I’m interested in seeing them act opposite each other with some heavy-ish subject material. I’m particularly stoked to see Fey take on a role that’s unlike any she’s ever done before. 

The overall plot seems a little scatterbrain (romance, life goals, stressful career, long-lost possible offspring, etc), but with these two actors (and Lily Tomlin!), it’s got my vote. OH! Not to mention it’s being directed by Paul Weitz, who, if you’re not familiar, was the brilliant director behind About A Boy. So, yeah, this should be good.

Dreams do come true: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler to host Golden Globes

HOT DAMN. 

In holy cow this is awesome news, NBC has somehow managed to convince two of my favorite ladies in showbiz, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, to host the 2013 Golden Globes. Yes! It’s true! 

I think it’s no secret that audiences the world over have been clamoring for a hosting duo like this for years. I just can’t believe that NBC actually did something right for a change and got these ladies on board! As if I didn’t love awards shows enough, here’s hoping the Golden Globes are fucking legendary with these two at the helm.

Andy Samberg, Emma Stone to guest on 30 ROCK

We all know 30 Rock gets all the good guest stars. Here’s to continuing that trend I guess. In the Jan. 26 ep, Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, and Nick Cannon (yeah, IDK either) will cameo in a faux movie trailer for Jenna’s new film, a spoof on Valentine’s Day entitled Martin Luther King Jr Day. Yup.

This just makes me think what kind of awesome chemistry Samberg and Stone would have in a killer comedy. MAKE IT HAPPEN HOLLYWOOD.

SNL has it’s most fun episode of the year with the return of Jimmy Fallon

SO

BRILLIANT.

That’s basically all my brain was thinking while watching last night’s SNL. The prodigal son of funny and laughing through sketches, Jimmy Fallon, made his triumphant return for his first ever time as host. And all that ensued was sheer awesome! It really makes me wonder why it always takes the likes of Justin Timberlake or Jimmy Fallon etc, to get SNL on its A-game. Last night’s ep was leaps and bounds beyond several episodes this season, and it just radiated with absolute happiness and energy—funny energy. I could not have asked for a better return for Fallon (who is and will always be on of my favorite SNL cast members). AND AND AND, the best part!! They pulled out ALL the stops, and had a few classic Jimmy sketches here and there, and the guest stars galore! Oh was it a night of the guest star. But not in the, ‘hmm whaat?’ way. In a OMFG I WAS HOPING SHE WOULD SHOW AND UP AND HERE SHE IS! way. Amy Poehler? Check. Rachel Dratch? Check. Tina Fey? Check. And a few others. But I won’t spoil everything.

The cold open was none other than Fallon and Dratch’s classic Bostonian couple, Sully and Denise. It was great. Great! And a very welcome break from the snooze-inducing political cold opens of late.

We got a faux commercial for Michael Buble Christmas duets. It was another excuse for SNL to bring out a cascade of impressions, but holy crap was it funny. It was so dead on in Fallon’s impression of Justin Bieber (Fallon had about 5 impression throughout the whole sketch), and everyone else totally brought it too.

We also got a HILARIOUS riff on Fallon’s memorable Mick Jagger-in-the-mirror sketch from so many years ago. This time around, his reflection was played by Andy Samberg, and the result was one of the funniest sketches of the entire season. I think this one might be my favorite of the night.

And they brought out the old gang for the Christmas song performance!!! Chris Kattan, Horatios Sanz, and Tracy Morgan were all there! It was a nostalgic trip down memory lane, and I fucking loved that they didn’t forget it. (PS, did anyone else think Chris Kattan looked weird?)

We also got another visit from the crazy gals over at the Today show—that is, Kristen Wiig and Nasim Pedrad’s Kathy Lee and Hoda. And wouldn’t you know, they got a special visit from Regis (aka Jimmy bringing back one of his many impressions)!

One of the more random sketches of the night had Fallon playing Beethoven. In a concert/comedy show style, he went around his entire orchestra and introduced all the guys. It was weirdly awesome, if only for Fallon’s infallibly energetic performance.

The only 2 sketches of the night I thought were weaker than the rest of the show (yet still stronger than many sketches this season, and oddly fun to watch) were a play on the play (ha!) War Horse, and a 1920s dinner party sketch. They were both kind of weird (War Horse particularly so), but again, I still found myself enjoying them, even despite their obvious flaws in comparison to the rest of the show.

The only sketch that I thought was just plain not funny, was the fauxmercial about ‘Tony Palmese’s One Man Show.’ Fred Armisen was Tony Palmese, and well, that’s pretty much all I can say about this one, because it just wasn’t good.

Weekend Update was fucking fantastic. If you were hoping to get a wonderful, wonderful ‘Weekend Update Joke Off’ featuring Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers up against Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon’s, THEN YOU’RE IN LUCK!! This is probably one my favorite things they’ve done in the past several seasons.

Also, Jude Law stopped by the Update desk to have a chat with Andy Samberg’s Nicholas Cage, and it was quite a delight (as it pretty much is every time Samberg whips out the Cage impression).

And finally, SNL jumped on the Tim Tebow bandwagon and gave him a good ole lampoon! I hate that guy, so I welcomed this with open arms. The sketch poked fun at Tebow’s insanely exuberant Christian faith, and featured a pep talk from Jesus in the locker room. Good stuff. 

Michael Buble sounded smooth and supple as always, natch.

This is my favorite show of this season so far. Everything about it made me SO happy. I am so glad Jimmy’s return was marked with flat-out awesomeness. YAY SO GOOD!
