The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards show was everything we hoped it would be – entertaining, funny, shocking and punctual! The show ran smoothly with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were golden as co-hosts. You just know they will be co-hosting again next year.

Some of their best lines:

“It’s the only night when the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television.”

“I haven’t really been following the controversy over Zero Dark Thirty but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron.”

“You know what Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.”

“That was Hilary Clinton’s husband.” – after Bill Clinton’s appearance.

“Please welcome middle-aged George Clooney.”

“Anne Hathaway, you gave a stunning performance in Les Mis.I have not seen someone so alone and abandoned like that. Since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars.”

    GOOD show! You hit on all the highlights! The James Cameron / Taylor Swift lines were the greatest! Ferrell and Wig were brilliant!
