Monday Memos: Golden Globes 2014 Recap

Hello people of the internet, on today’s ‘Monday Memos’, we are going to discuss what happened on the ‘Golden Globes’ this past Sunday (January 12, 2014). This show kicks off award season, and honors excellence in TV, mini-series, and TV movies. So are y’all ready!?! Well then let’s begin!

 

Opening Monologue: The hilarious comedy duo of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey once again hosted the show this year, and the two definitely made the show fun to watch.  The two started their monologue by making fun of their own hosting skills with their comment that “in Hollywood, if something kind of works, then they keep doing it until you get sick of it”. They then began making fun of a lot of the celebrities that were in attendance such as: Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, Matt Damon (who they also made fun of later, when actress Melissa McCarthy presented an award, but supposedly got amnesia backstage, and now believed that she was Matt Damon), and numerous others. Amy and Tina also had a running joke with veteran actress  Julia Louise-Dreyfus (who at first pretended to be “too good” to sit in the TV section of the auditorium due to Julia’s first Golden Globe film  nomination, and then she later sat in the TV section, and Tina and Amy made fun of her). Finally, Tina and Amy made fun of George Clooney by saying that he “would rather float away in space, then spend time with a woman his age” (in reference to the hit film ‘Gravity’ that George did with Sandra Bullock).

I believe that this was an excellent and fun start to the award season!
