London - Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were a hit among the star guests at the prestigious awards show.

 

The comediennes presented the annual event - following two years of British Ricky Gervais in the anchoring role - and they impressed everyone with their hosting skills as they managed to make the audience laugh without making them feel uncomfortable.

 

'Modern Family' star Julie Bowen said: “I loved, loved them. After two years of Ricky Gervais - I mean, Ricky makes you nervous because you never know who is next to fall under his sharp-tongued hatchet. But those girls were so funny and I worship them. And they proved that you can be drop dead gorgeous and completely funny, and one day I want to be just like them.”

 

'Homeland' star Navid Negahban was also impressed with Tina and Amy especially when they poked fun at Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow.

 

When introducing director Kathryn's latest film, 'Zero Dark Thirty' - about a CIA agent tracking terrorist Osama Bin Laden - Amy joked the filmmaker understood torture because “she spent three years married to James Cameron.”

 

And Navid was certainly impressed, saying: “Those girls were awesome. My favourite joke was the Kathryn Bigelow (and James Cameron) joke. I was like, 'Oh my.' “

 

Kathryn was married to 'Terminator' and 'Avatar' director James - who is notoriously difficult to work with - from 1989 to 1991.

 

Fey and Poehler also impressed fans. Many YouTube viewers praised the duo’s “brilliant” hosting skills, with many hoping they would host the show again. One commenter requested that they host the Oscars in 2014. - Bang Showbiz
