(Another) Study break of the day: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting the Golden Globes


You guys, it’s really happening! NBC made the incredibly wise choice of tapping our dream BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host the 70th Annual Golden Globes on January 13th. Their first official ad as hosts was released today, along with the list of nominees. I, for one, am outraged that Matthew McConaughey was snubbed for his sultry, drool-worthy inspiring performance in Magic Mike. But hey, Daniel Day Lewis lived as Lincoln for two months, so I guess that’s cool, too.

Laura Linney ’86 just won a Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical, for her role in Showtime’s dark comedy, “The Big C.”  She plays Cathy Jamison, a woman grappling with the changed circumstances of her life after learning that she has terminal cancer. Linney was absent from the ceremony, due to a family situation.

Congratulations to a very successful Brown alum! You make all of us look good.
