THR Cover: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Spill Golden Globes Secrets
The "Saturday Night Live" BFFs reveal who gave them advice, how they'll deal with the ghost of Ricky Gervais and when Fey's daughter will be Miss Golden Globe.
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.
