Fey and Poehler Unleash Bill Cosby Jokes at Golden Globes
Tina and Amy Open Golden Globes With Killer Cosby, Sony Jokes (Mediaite)
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler opened the 2015 Golden Globes with a slew of jokes about the Sony Pictures hack and The Interview. Quoting producer Scott Rudin’s leaked emails about Angelina Jolie, Fey welcomed, “you bunch of despicable, spoiled, minimally-talented brats.”
“Tonight we celebrate all the great television shows we know and love as well as all the movies that North Korea was okay with,” she added.
“That’s right,” Poehler said. “The biggest story in Hollywood this year was when North Korea threatened an attack if Sony Pictures released The Interview, forcing us all to pretend we wanted to see it.”
The pair also played a good-natured game of “Would You Rather?” featuring Colin Firth vs. Colin Farrell and Mark Ruffalo vs. Edward Norton.
Then, there were the inevitable Bill Cosby jokes, featuring a revival of this 10-year-old bit for Saturday Night Live in which Fey and Poehler competed to see who could do the most offensive impression of the comedian.
