The Golden Globe Awards were held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 12th, 2014 to recognize achievements in the entertainment industry. This year’s show did better than the last, according to Brian Stelter from CNN, who said that “More than 20 million people watched the Golden Globes” (Stelter). This is the highest total audience for the awards show in 10 years.

Entertainment weekly said that “Any ratings boost could be seen as another endorsement of hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poeler, who hosted the show for the second year in a row.” Fey and Poeler poked at stars with humor at the show’s opening. The crowd roared with uncontrollable laughter when Fey said that Gravity is “about how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age!”

    Jennifer Lawrence showed equal humor when she won her second Golden Globe Award. She was nominated Best Supporting Actress for American Hustle. Her speech ended with a nervous “I’m sorry I’m shaking so much! Don’t ever do this again!” Crowds went crazy for her as she exited the stage. Jacqueline Bisset was nominated Best Supporting Actress for Dancing on the Edge. Her response was a bit more straightforward. After gaining her composure she said, “If you want to look good, forgive everybody. It’s the best beauty treatment.”
