THR Cover: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Spill Golden Globes Secrets

Page 4

THR: Back to the Globes. Is anything off-limits?

Poehler: The live audience tends to tell you. Tina made a very good point the other day. It’s a tough crowd because it’s a lot of nervous people waiting to see if they win or lose, and as the night goes on, the losers outnumber the winners. But having been in a lot of those awards shows, the Golden Globes are more fun because you can drink. It’s just that easy.

THR: OK, so can you come up with a couple of rules for a Globes drinking game?

Fey: Any time an actress cries in a speech, drink. Any time you see a person actively not listening to someone onstage, drink.

Poehler: Any time someone says, “I didn’t prepare anything!”

Fey: Any time anyone thanks Harvey Weinstein, eat a meatball sub.

THR: How about any time they show Judi Dench?

Fey: Yeah. You take off an article of clothing.

Poehler: Any time Maggie Smith wins.

THR: Has anyone given you a good piece of advice?

Fey: No. We should get some.

Poehler: I was doing some talk shows, and I asked both Jimmy and Conan O’Brien. Everyone says, “Make sure you’re enjoying doing it and make sure you have fun and keep it loose.” I think Tina and I aren’t worried about that. We just want to make sure we look amazing. We don’t care what we say. I have to get my head peel done before Jan. 13.

Fey: I want to look like a really young candle.

THR: Have you done the awkward dance where designers and stylists show you 10 different potential dresses for you to wear?

Fey: I’ve done some of that. Have you done any of that, Amy?

Poehler: Oh, I haven’t done any of that.

Fey: It’s going to be a small scale. It’s not the Oscars.

Poehler: You never know, we may change outfits during the show. If we do, it’ll be onstage.
