The much-anticipated awards season is back this year, and the topic on everyone’s lips this past week was the Golden Globe awards.
This year, viewers enjoyed the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 11 hosted, once again, by well-known actresses Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
Poehler and Fey announced this would be their final year hosting the award show and made sure everyone remembered that. They brought up this news several times on the red carpet, as well as during the show.
The hosts kept the audience, made up of many talented actors and their families, rolling with their hilarious blue-collar jokes.
Some of their jokes were a bit offensive to some of the viewers and audience members. It was first time anyone joked about Bill Cosby’s rape allegations. Fey told E! earlier that she and Poehler were going to take full advantage of the show since it was their last time to host, stating, “What are they going to do, fire us?”
It was a big night for films such as “Birdman,” “Boyhood” and “Transparent,” all of them taking home many awards in several categories.
“Boyhood,” directed by Richard Linklater and starring Ellar Coltrane and Patricia Arquette, was the first winner of the night, receiving the award for best drama of 2015. The award for best comedy of 2015 went to “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” directed by Wes Anderson and starring Ralph Fiennes.
