The Best Non-Cosby Jokes from the Globes

Jessica Chastain goldeng globesWhen it came to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Bill Cosby joke at the Golden Globes, you were either laughing hysterically (Lena Dunham) or completely losing your sh*t (Jessica Chastain). So fun seeing harmless Clooney’s-wife-could-do-better and Meryl Streep-has-a-million-awards jokes turn into I PUT THE PILLS IN THE PEOPLE.

There were of course other funny moments from the monologue which are being a tad overshadowed…

1. Amy, to Frances McDormand: Frances, I love you. Can I just say you’re the only person in this room that I would save in a fire?

2. Tina: George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person UN commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.

3. Amy: I didn’t like Gone Girl. I go to the movies to escape, I don’t want to just see myself up there on the screen.

4. Amy, on Reese Witherspoon in Wild: She did all of her own walking … Andy Serkis was great as her backpack.  Continue reading “The Best Non-Cosby Jokes from the Globes”

Tina Fey Sells Two Original Series to NBC, Fox

tina fey gif mustacheAre you a Tina Fey fan? Of course you are, because Tina Fey is fucking hilarious.

So good news for everyone: the 30-Rock creator/star’s production company Little Stranger made two big sales this week, meaning we’ll be getting some more of that signature Tina Fey humor in the near future.

The first is a “Cheers-like comedy” that takes place on New York’s Fire Island and was picked up by NBC. The second, which was sold to Fox on Friday, is set around an all-women’s college that begins accepting men.

Fey likely won’t be on screen much, but the fact that she’s involved in the projects at all means they’ll likely be worth a watch. She’ll also be working with members of her 30 Rock team, including long time friend and 30 Rock co-executive producer Matt Hubbard.  Continue reading “Tina Fey Sells Two Original Series to NBC, Fox”

Taylor Swift Disses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Says They’re Going Straight To Hell Without Passing Go

Taylor Swift vanity fairTaylor Swift took it a bit too far when she hit beloved funny-ladies Amy Poehler and Tina Fey with a stone normally reserved for her ex-boyfriends. In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Taylor (who I THOUGHT had an okay sense of humor) says there’s a special place in hell for the Golden Globe hosts who light-heartedly told her to “stay away” from Michael J. Fox’s son, joking that she “Needs some ‘me time’ to learn about herself.”

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Swift told Vanity Fair’s Nancy Jo Sales. “Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’” 

I’d like to randomly mention that the favorited quote about women and fire/brimstone was originally delivered by Madeleine Albright at a WNBA game in 2006. I doubt our former Secretary of State would appreciate it being used maliciously against fellow feminists like Tina Fey.  Continue reading “Taylor Swift Disses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Says They’re Going Straight To Hell Without Passing Go”

Amy and Tina Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Blew Ricky Gervais and all other hosts out of the water

For some reason, humanity has yet to come up with good word for the female version of a bromance. Regardless, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s girlmance/clam-admiration rivals all.

The two SNL funnyladies got laughs without really making fun of anyone. Do you have any idea how hard that is? No, you don’t, because they made it look SO DAMN EASY. Blast.

Tina: Tonight we honor the television shows that have entertained us all year, as well as the films that have only been in theaters for two days. 

Amy: That’s what makes tonight so special, only at the Golden Globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television [pan to Quentin Tarantino].  Continue reading “Best and Worst Moments and Fashion at the 2013 Golden Globes”

Tina Fey Roasts ‘Legitimate Rape’ Creator Todd Akin

At the Center for Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala on October 24, SNL and 30 Rock writer/actress Tina Fey roasted Todd AkinRichard Mourdock, Tom Smith and Steve King‘s backward views on rape and pregnancy.

“I wish we could have an honest and respectful dialogue about these complicated issues, but it seems like we can’t right now,” Fey told the audience.

“If I have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a two-dollar haircut explain to me what rape is, I’m gonna lose my mind.”

“It’s making me dumber when I say it. But it’s something about the body not being able to get pregnant when it’s under physical stress.”
