The Golden Globes are set to air Sunday evening and Amy Poehler, who is co-hosting with Tina Fey for the second time, has little patience for silly questions from reporters. In a Q&A with the Hollywood Reporter, Poehler comes off as snarky and short, refusing to be baited for jokes. Here are the snarkiest tidbits:
On the worst pitch she’s ever been given for an awards show joke:
You think I’m going to tell you a bad idea for a joke? You’re f—ing crazy. No! Honestly you’re just trying to figure out a fresh take on something. We like to leave a little space and air and sometimes that means having to think up a lot of different versions of the same joke or topic.
On whether NBC is pressuring Fey and Poehler to do the whole show as a live musical number, after the success of The Sound of Music:
OK, I see what you’re doing, you’re going to set up jokes. I’m not falling for that. I didn’t say any of that. I’ve worked at NBC for 12 years so I’m happy they had a successful night of TV.
On whether she’d accept $1,000 to wear Amy Adams’ racy outfits from American Hustle:
Oh eww, I don’t want to even answer this question. Pass. Next.
On Seth MacFarlane’s Oscar hosting performance last year:
It’s so hard to host. I don’t want to comment on anybody else’s performance. Why would you think that we would say anything about anybody’s performance if we’re getting ready to do our own? It’s a hard to job to host anything. Period.
On SNL‘s decision to add an African-American woman to the cast:
Ugh, I don’t want to talk about this. Pass.
On new rules for Fey and Poehler’s Golden Globes drinking game:
So now I’m just writing a joke for you that I might want to use for the show. How about this for a drinking game? Every time I drink, everybody at home should drink. And if Bryan Cranston speaks, everybody has to do a little bit of meth. Just a touch, because that’s all you need, just a touch.
