WATCH: Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh Pull Off Very Nice Roast For Golden Globes Opener
The Golden Globes kicked off bang, as its two co-hosts joked about how people Hollywood can’t stop landing themselves in hot water.
“Now, some of you may be wondering why the two of us are hosting together,” Andy Samberg said.
Co-host Sandra Oh then added: “And the reason is we are the only two people left in Hollywood who haven’t gotten in trouble for saying something offensive.”
Samberg then set up a joke about “the race” that gets under his skin: “The Hollywood half marathon, because it messes up all the traffic,” he quipped.
The hosts continued to hold a very nice roast of the various stars in attendance.
“You fools are all about to get roasted Gervais-style,” Samberg said, turning to Spike Lee and shouting: “Lifetime fan, can’t wait to see what you do next!”
Oh then turned to Bradley Cooper: “You’re hot.”
And Samberg said to Jeff Bridges: “I wish you were my dad.”
While they did not mention him by name, they made allusions to comedian Kevin Hart, who was booted from hosting the Academy Awards after years-old offensive tweets emerged.
