The Best Celebrity Digs From the Golden Globes
Burn, baby, burn
We all know Tina Fey and Amy Poehler roasted Bill Cosby like a country ham last night. But what of the other celebrity feather-ruffling? Here, in no particular order, are our favorite zingers of the evening.
Being married to a genius has the tendency to overshadow one's accomplishments: “Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria and was selected for a three-person commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award!”
--Tina and Amy to George Clooney
That time Maggie one-upped the heck out of Amy Adams's girl-power speech: "I've noticed a lot of people talking about the wealth of roles for powerful women in television lately...but what I see actually are women who are sometimes powerful and sometimes not...what I think is new is the wealth of roles for actual women in televison. That's what I think is revolutionary and evolutionary."
--Maggie Gyllenhaal to every other female award winner
May Adele Dazeem live in infamy: "I've been practicing saying that last name [Quvenzhané] so I don't have a John Travolta moment...I still watch that every day on Youtube. It's brilliant isn't it? Just brilliant."
--Ricky Gervais to John Travolta
We feel the same way about Frances McDormand: "I love you. You're the only one here I would save in a fire."
--Amy Poehler to everyone else in the room except Ms. McDormand
The line between Francis Underwood and Kevin Spacey continues to blur: "This is just the beginning of my revenge...This is the eighth time I've been nominated. I cannot f***ing believe I won."
--Kevin Spacey to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
National treasures, these two: "It's nice that men at last are getting the recognition they deserve for being good at comedy...Finally, we can put at rest that negative stereotype that men just aren't funny. You've come a long way, baby!"
--Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin to men
Reason number 5,281 why we love Emma Stone: "One of those famous Big Eye paintings is on display tonight. Let’s check it out! It's cute, but it's creepy."
--Tina and Amy to Emma Stone
OK, so she didn't actually roast anyone. But did you see the woman? In case it wasn't already abundantly clear, Goopy is winning the breakup.
