Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: Golden as Globes hosts
Then she wrapped up her tribute in quirky style by saluting her friend of 45 years with a familiar children's song: "A circle is round, it has no end," she sang. "That's how long you're going to be my friend."
A comic highlight of the evening was "Mr. Golden Globes." He was introduced by Fey as "my adult son from a previous relationship" but turned out to be Poehler done up as a fussy lad who groused, "This is stupid! I hate being up here!"
"Don't you talk to me like that," Fey shot back. "Do you want to go live with your father?"
"I can't," was the churlish reply. "You won't tell me who it is!"
"Well, he's here tonight," snapped Fey. "So look around."
With hosts like that, it was hard not to look forward to next year's Globes, when these Golden gals will be back again.
