Show bits: Fey, Poehler do not disappoint

Monday, January 14, 2013 - Updated: 5:50 PM

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Show Bits brings you the 70th annual Golden Globes awards through the eyes of Associated Press journalists.

------

The Golden Globes' shrewdest choices may not have had anything to do with those nominated for awards.

At midpoint in Sunday's broadcast, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were poised to be the night's big winners for their roles as co-hosts.

Poehler had promised not to be "edgy or offensive tonight," as past host Ricky Gervais had been in many viewers' eyes.

"Because as Ricky learned the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times," Poehler said.

She and Fey weren't edgy or offensive. Just charming, irreverent and hilarious.

QUICKQUOTE: "I could never stop acting. You'd have to drag me behind a team of horses. No, I'm not retiring from acting." -- Jodie Foster, speaking to reporters after accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

------

QUICKQUOTE: "Honestly, I would have played a musket, so I'm thrilled I got to sing a really good song." -- Anne Hathaway on her role in "Les Miserables," which won her a supporting actress Golden Globe Award.

------

QUICKQUOTE: "Oh my God, what an exciting special guest: That was Hillary Clinton's husband! -- Poehler after a special appearance by former President Bill Clinton.

------

Max Greenfield of "New Girl" stopped to sign an autograph for bleacher sitter Arturo Vargas, just after Vargas' mom, Patricia, remarked that she had the best seats outside the house.

She and her 22-year-old film student son's bleacher seats were next to the area where the Golden Globes' very own camera crew had set up.

As a result, just about everybody who was anybody stopped to say hello to their fans on their way into the Golden Globes show.

Don't mess with Meryl.

That's what a lot of Twitter users were saying after Jennifer Lawrence accepted the Golden Globe for lead actress in a motion picture comedy or musical, looked it over and quipped, "What does it say? I beat Meryl!"

Meryl Streep was nominated in the same category for "Hope Springs."

"Who says that?" tweeted "Dancing With the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

Celeb blogger Perez Hilton cautioned, "Oh, no you didn't!!!! Meryl Streep is gonna haunt your dreams!!!!!!!!!!"

Lawrence was actually quoting a line from the movie "First Wives Club" starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton.

Fans who got the joke were quick to point out she was not dissing Streep, who has more Golden Globe nominations than anyone.

Julia Louis Dreyfus stood patiently in line for the restroom, as did Emily Blunt and Jane Lynch.

It's worth the wait: The place also doubles as a courtesy ER for beauty fixes.

Hair stylists and makeup artists keep busy there throughout the evening with curling irons and blush brushes.

Most big-name stars bypass the services, however. Apparently their glow is natural.
