The first of many captivating award shows for 2014 has arrived.
The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards took place on Jan. 12 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
The ceremony was produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
The 71st Golden Globe Awards proceeded to honor the best in film and television for the year 2013.
Two of the most memorable hosts made yet another appearance to the stage. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, two real-life comedians, willingly returned to The Golden Globes stage for another year of captivating comedy at the nominees’ expense.
Fey and Poehler may have over stepped a few boundaries while poking fun at fellow actor George Clooney’s need to date younger women.
Fey roasted Clooney while saying, “Gravity is nominated for best film. It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.”
The crowd followed with uncontrollable laughter and applause.
The joke may have been a little inappropriate but it was all in good fun.
Student Sarah Khosravanizadeh was pleasantly surprised when she tuned into the award show.
“I thought Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were both hilarious! I usually get bored while watching all these long award shows but they definitely kept it fun and exciting!” said Khosravanizadeh.
