Last night’s Golden Globe awards were hosted by “Saturday Night Live” alums–and BFFs–Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and while they proved to be more charming than controversial Ricky Gervais was during his run at hosting, they still took some fiery shots at the stars in the audience.
The comedy team picked on the most popular celebrities of the night, including Anne Hathaway, Lena Dunham, and celeb culture in general, gaining a roomful of hearty laughs which managed to not be mean spirited. But it was Amy Poehler’s dig at one very famous director that drew shocked gasps from the crowd before nervous laughter ensued.
It came in the form of a joke aimed at director Kathryn Bigelow, who was famously married to James Cameron for three years. As nominee for her film “Zero Dark Thirty”, Bigelow was subject to good-natured harassment from the hosts along with everyone else, but you can tell from her surprised expression that she wasn’t expecting her ex to be the butt of the joke.
See the entire seven-minute opening below and watch as Fey and Poehler work their magic.
