Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's opening duologue at the Golden Globes


There were lots of highlights at last night's Golden Globe Awards which is always more fun than the Oscars or many other Awards shows. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were perfect hosts at the show as they are such great friends in real life and when working together they have such perfect comic timing. They make good comedy seem effortless.

Their opening duologue was a real highlight. What I love about the Golden Globes is because the stars are grouped so close to the stage at various tables it's easy to see an off guard moment such as when Adele won for best song and Taylor Swift looked like she may play Baby Jane one day. The moment where Amy mentions James Cameron was also great, you can see the stars in the audience who couldn't care less and laugh and also around them are the ones who are thinking 'I may have to work with him at some stage of my career'.

I also think that following Amy's rendition of I Dreamed a Dream it's chorus lyrics should be permanently changed to "I dreamed a dream of da da da and then I went to get a sandwich'. Classic!
