Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hit North Korea, Bill Cosby and (of course) their Hollywood peers in their opening monologue at the Golden Globes
Fey said the Golden Globes were a celebration in the best TV of the year, “and all the movies North Korea was OK with.” Poehler credited the Sony hack with “forcing us all to pretend we wanted to see it,” while Fey said North Korea calling the film a “wanton act of terrorism” wasn’t the worst review the Seth Rogen comedy received.

Fey also mocked George Clooney by listing the many accomplishments of his new wife, Amal, a successful human rights lawyer — ending the lengthy accolades with, “So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
The comedians also took some big swings at Bill Cosby.
“Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby,” said Poehler, referencing the character’s appearance in Disney musical Into the Woods. She and Fey went on to trade impersonations of Cosby, who has been accused of sexual assault by a number of women.
“I put the pills in the people,” they both said, as though they were in a vintage Cosby Jell-O commercial.
They also took aim at the industry in general.
“Patricia Arquette is so wonderful in the film Boyhood,” said Poehler. “Boyhood proves there are still great roles for women over 40, as long as you get hired when you are under 40.”
Poehler also explained that Cake — the Jennifer Aniston movie — was named after a fluffy food people eat on their birthdays, while Fey explained what birthdays were.
“Birthdays are a things people celebrate when they admit they have aged,” said Fey.
The comedians are co-hosting the show for the third consecutive year.
