Tina Fey:
>> “We are very happy to be back. We are hosting the Golden Globes for the second time. Because this is Hollywood, and if something kind of works, they’ll just keep doing it until everybody starts hating it!”
>> “We are going to get this done in three hours. Or as director Martin Scorsese calls it: Act One.”
>> “Gravity is nominated for Best Film. It's the story of how George Clooney would rather float away in to space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.”
>> “Meryl Streep is so brilliant in August: Osage County, proving that there are still great parts in Hollywood for Meryl Streeps over 60.”
>> “Matthew McConaughey did amazing work this year. For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, he lost 45 pounds. Or what actresses call being in a movie.”

Amy Poehler:
>> “A very good evening to everyone here in the room and to all the woman and gay men watching at home.”
>> “Woody Allen is the recipient of this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award just a few years after Martin Scorsese won it. I assume the award is for tiniest man with the biggest glasses.”
>> “Matt Damon is here for Behind the Candelabra. Matt, on any other night in another room, you would be a big deal. But tonight, and don’t take this the wrong way, you’re basically a garbage person.”
>> “I really loved The Wolf of Wall Street but some of it was too graphic. I mean if I wanted to see Jonah Hill masturbate at a pool party, I’d go to one of Jonah Hill’s pool parties.”
>> “Before earning a Golden Globe nomination for his first ever acting role in Captain Phillips, Barkhad Abdi was working as a limousine driver in Minnesota. There’s such a beautiful life lesson here, everyone: sleep with your limo driver tonight — before he gets famous.”
