My Storify: Golden Globes are once again amazing TV, thanks to ace hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

14

January

tina-fey-amy-poehler-golden-globes-2013-gi.jpgIf the Oscar academy has any sense, they are on the phone to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's agents right now, simultaneously cutting a big check to current host Seth MacFarlane so he'll jut go away for at least another year.

That's because Fey and Poehler's work hosting Sunday's Golden Globes awards was so funny, snarky and incisive -- without being mean, petty or needlessly humiliating -- that they provided a perfect example of how a modern-day Hollywood awards ceremony should unfold. All MacFarlane can do is go down from there.

From cracking wise about Jim Cameron to dressing up as fake nominees and capping it all with the perfect joke of heading home with presumably gay film legend Jodie Foster, the two comic powerhouses lent sly, sharp humor to a show which turned into a serious tribute to TV's sharpest female voices -- including Girls creator Lena DunhamHomeland star Claire Danes and Game Change star Julianne Moore, all of whom won big Sunday.

The Hollywood Foreign Press even managed to avoid many embarrassing awards in TV categories -- besides snubbing Louis C.K. in comedy for Don Cheadle and handing all TV awards but two to programs on premium cable channels HBO and Showtime.

See all the Golden Globes' TV winners here. And look below to see a Storify capturing all my snarky commentary on Twitter, Facebook and social media tonight:
