Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's Best Zingers from the Golden Globes

Co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler didn't waste any time getting the jokes and drinks flowing at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.

"It's the only night of the year where the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television," Poehler began.

"Ricky Gervais could not be here tonight because he is no longer technically in show business," joked Fey about the comedian's punishment for mocking the big stars.

"We want to assure you that we have no intention of being edgy or offensive tonight because, as Ricky learned the hard way," added Poehler, "when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times."

Amy Poehler got both the biggest laugh and gasp of the night talking about 'Zero Dark Thirty' director Kathryn Bigelow.

"Kathryn Bigelow's nominated tonight," she said. "I haven't really been following the controversy over Zero Dark Thirty, but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron."

"Anne Hathaway (photosAnne Hathaway photos), you gave a stunning performance in Les Miserables," praised Tina Fey. "I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned like that since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars."

They also joked about some of the nominee and non-nominee's names.

"The Hunger Games was one of the biggest films of the year, and also what I call the six weeks it took me to get into this dress," say Fey.

"Ang Lee's been nominated for Best Director for Life of Pi, which is what I'm going to call the six weeks after I take this dress off!"

The two also shared a laugh about Lena Dunham's nudity on Girls: "If you are being forced to do all that nudity, just tell us, we will call child services. Give us a secret signal, like a wink or something."

After former president Bill Clinton made an appearance to introduce Best Picture nominee 'Lincoln', Poehler yelled: "That was Hillary Clinton‘s husband!"

The pair also had a zinger to follow up Jodie Foster's public coming out speech and close out the night: "We're going home with Jodie Foster!"
