Man, the 2014 Golden Globes were nutty, eh? Awards season’s drunkest cousin on the block had its night in the spotlight on Sunday evening and as is to be expected, they did not disappoint. From minute one the show was off on a rocketing and riotous pace, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler absolutely nailing their opening monologue and things only continued off the rails from there. In a good way, of course!
It’s not always easy to predict how the Hollywood Foreign Press will go when it comes to their TV preferences from year to year. Last year it was all about Homeland, and this year, the Showtime series didn’t even make the list in any category.
What better day to celebrate the approaching return of Jerry Seinfeld’s comedian-focused Crackle series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee than on this December 23, the day die-hard Seinfeld fans will recognize as Festivus… for the rest of us! The new trailer has been making the rounds may not include any feats of strength, or airings of grievances, but it does give us a look at the celebrities and comedy in store for the new season.
Ellie Kemper needs to be the star of a TV comedy. People tried to make that happen earlier this year with a pilot called Brenda Forever, but NBC eventually passed on it when it came time to start ordering pilots to series. Fortunately, NBC’s still interested in Kemper, apparently as The Office actor is set to star in a new comedy from 30 Rock’s Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, and just to ensure that this one will actually happen, NBC’s ordering the untitled project straight to series.
Back in August, we learned that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were approached about hosting the Golden Globes again. Given how well the hilarious duo did last time around, not to mention the ratings the broadcast brought in, it's no surprise that the Hollywood Foreign Press would want them back. Today comes word that they're not only locked in to host the Golden Globe Awards in 2014, but also 2015.
Tina Fey returned to Saturday Night Live to host the series' season premiere last night, and if you tuned in, you know she delivered the goods. Among the best sketches of the night was a parody of HBO's Girls, which had Fey playing a visiting "girl" from Albania named Blerta. While Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa are complaining about all of their major life crises, Blerta's just happy to have a roof over her head.
Saturday Night Live is the series that put Tina Fey on the map. The sketch comedy series benefited from Fey's talent, both as a writer and a commentator for years, and while she departed the NBC series a while back, this Saturday night Fey will return as host. This is actually Fey's fourth time hosting SNL, which means one more and she'll join the five-timers club! But that's thinking a bit ahead.
Miley Cyrus is everywhere right now. Leading up to her newest album, Bangerz, it makes sense that there would be plenty of Miley appearances, and the star is set to host an early episode of Saturday Night Live this fall. She won’t get to pop up in the premiere, however. That honor goes to Tina Fey and the musical guest Arcade Fire.
With 30 Rock sadly off the air, any excuse to get Tina Fey back on our televisions is a good one. Bring back Tina and Amy! Make the Golden Globes relevant and actually funny again!
Earlier this week, we learned that Tina Fey was teaming with former 30 Rock showrunner Robert Carlock for a TV comedy in development at NBC, putting the writer/actor/producer back with the network that helped put her on the map, between, Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock.
30 Rock will have one last hurrah at the Emmy Awards next month-- and could easily win a big farewell Best Comedy statue-- but after that the show will only live on in fond memories and endless, endless re-runs in syndication. Can a new show from Tina Fey help us move on from our 30 Rock nostalgia?
We still don't really want to admit that 30 Rock has gone off the air once and for all, but given how much we've been thinking about Jack's invention of clear dishwashers since last Thursday, it's probably time to come to terms with it once and for all. The final episode of the wickedly irreverent show went in for a little more sentiment than it usually does
Hosting an awards show is hard. Some of the greatest comedic minds of the last five decades have stepped up to the plate and wound up embarrassing themselves. Let the record show Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have not added their names to that depressing lot. In fact, the ladies positively crushed their opening monologue, generating a couple of laughs so big they actually had to leave an extended pause to let the audience recover.
The 2013 Golden Globe awards are happening tonight, celebrating some of the best film and television from the last year in one big star-studded event. We're live blogging the event, from the red carpet to the ceremony to all of the winners! Follow along with our live blog as the event plays out, and feel free to chime in with your own two cents on the winners, the speeches, the celebrities, and hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The longtime American Idol host is not a comedian, but he is slyly funny and more importantly, ruthlessly efficient. He’s one of the hardest working, most professional men in Hollywood, and if given the Globes assignment, he would put in the time, energy and thought needed to keep the show running on time, reduce awkwardness and put out the most professional product possible.
