Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting the Golden Globes for what they say will be their last time, but they're making sure their opinions are widely known before they stop gracing us with their wit.
Case in point: reminding the world exactly who gets awards, and for what, specifically as it pertains to the work of George Clooney and his new wife, Amal (née Alamuddin). George, who was being honoured with the night's Cecil B. DeMille award, was seated right in front of the two hosts.
Fey shot first, saying:
"George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria and was selected for a three-person UN commission investigating rules of war violation in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award!"
In other words, she said exactly what we were all thinking — that Amal Clooney's accomplishments and societal contributions are probably more valuable than her husband's, but don't seem to get the same recognition. The hosts went on to note that, thanks to George's prankster reputation, perhaps he wouldn't even get the award after all.
But this is not the first time Fey and Poehler have mocked Clooney's relationship status. Last year, they joked his film "Gravity" was a true story, and he would "rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.”
For what it's worth, there's a 17-year age gap between the Clooneys, but it doesn't make the night's big joke any less funny. After all, both Clooneys laughed.
