When Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig performed one of the better pre-award schticks of last night’s Golden Globes, most people in the audience seemed to enjoy it. Ferrell and Wiig’s bit had the two attempting to describe the nominated movies in their category – although it was obvious that neither of them had really seen the movies. At least that was the bit.
