Except for one late unfortunate remark about a "supermodel's warm vagina," Tina Fey and Amy Poehler basically crushed it once again as co-hosts of the 71st annual Golden Globes. Here's a rundown of their best bits and zingers: Fey: "'Gravity' is nominated for best film: It's the story about how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age." Poehler refers to the Showtime drama "Masters of Sex" as "the degree I got from Boston College." Fey points out that Matthew McConaughey lost 45 pounds for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club" and adds, "or what actresses call 'being in a movie.'" The film "August: Osage County" proved "that there are great parts in Hollywood for Meryl Streeps over 60." Poehler on the rousing success of Netflix and the company's original programs: "Enjoy it while it lasts, Netflix. You're not going to feel so smug in a few years when Snapchat is up here accepting for best drama" On the length of the telecast: "We'll get this show done in three hours, or as Martin Scorsese calls it, Act One!" The pair also provoked big laughs when playfully chiding Julia Louis-Dreyfus for sitting with the movie stars, instead of the TV folk, and later calling her "a real phony." Louis-Dreyfus gamely played along. Poehler was a hoot pretending to be Fey's petulant teen son, and "Mr. Golden Globe," a boy who had never met his father. Said Fey, "He's somewhere in this room." And then came the closer. Fey: "This was the beautiful mess we hoped it would be." Poehler: "And I got to make out with Bono."
