That’s a wrap!
Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh proved the perfect pairing to host Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles, showing just the right amount of charisma and charm to keep Hollywood’s booziest awards show running smoothly. And while the ceremony was in no shortage of emotional high points, the duo did provide just the right atmosphere for there to be quite a few laughs.
It wasn’t all on the hosts, either. From Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph to Olivia Colman and Jeff Bridges, there was plenty of comedy to go around. And sure, the Golden Globes are supposed to be about recognizing the best and brightest in movies and television, watching teary-eyed speeches and seeing some show-stopping fashion, but it really, really helps if it’s funny, too.
With that in mind, here were some of the show’s funniest moments.
1. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh “Roast” Celebs
The amicable actors aren’t known for being sharp-tongued, but they didn’t stop that from letting them bring some serious burns for the Globe attendees!
Spike Lee: “Well if it isn’t Spike Lee, Mr. Do the Right Thing. Well, I’ll tell you who does the right thing,” said Samberg. “You, as a director. Lifetime fan, can’t wait to see what you do next. Bam!”
Jeff Bridges: “Hey Jeff! I wish you were my dad!” Samberg exclaimed.
Lady Gaga: “It just proves, and I’m just coming up with this now, that there can be 100 people in the room and 99 don’t believe in you, and you just need one who does, and that was Bradley Cooper,” Oh claimed, teasing Gaga for the interview story she’s told several times while promoting A Star Is Born. Samberg added, “I couldn’t agree with you more. I was just thinking, totally off the cuff, there could be 100 people and you just need one who does, and that, quite frankly, was Bradley Cooper.”
Alright… they actually got Gaga pretty good.
