Golden Globes 2015 Recap

"Nominees and Winners of the 72nd Golden Globe Awards hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler"
The 72nd Golden Globes were last night, and apart from the usual Hollywood back-patting and self-adulation, hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey provided some hearty laughs, accented by a few socially-relevant moments. With an opening monologue (dialogue in this case) that was a far departure from Ricky Gervais' raunchy, controversy-riddled speeches of years past, Fey and Poehler's third turn at hosting was fun, light-hearted and, without a doubt, the best part of the whole thing (supercut of Fey and Poehler's hosting by Flavorwire). With the help of Margaret Cho (posing as a DPRK foreign minister), the duo addressed the recent Interview scandal, and with the help of jello-riffic accents, took down Bill Cosby regarding his ongoing rape allegations. Powerful moments were shared when Jeffrey Tambor thanked the transgender community while accepting his award for critically-acclaimed comedy/drama Transparent; the award itself alluding at a "changing of the guard" for the traditionally white, straight, cisgendered television community. It was a big night for Richard Linklater and Boyhood which took home several awards, as well as for Birdman and Theory of Everything who each nabbed a pair.
