5 Hilarious Golden Globe Monologues To Watch Before The 2021 Ceremony

Unlike India, where award ceremonies are a medley of performances and comedic sketches, in the West, the onus of providing the entertainment lies mostly with the host of the ceremony. They can either make the night a memorable, hilarious one or a damp squib memed for eternity on the internet (we’re looking at you, Anne Hathaway and James Franco).

With Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returning to their host duties for the fourth time when the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards air on Sunday, February 28, we decided to take a look back at some of our favourite opening monologues of the award show.

Ricky Gervais

British comedian and actor Ricky Gervais has hosted the Golden Globes five times (2010-2012, 2016, 2020), and for a reason. He’s wickedly irreverent, spares nobody, isn’t afraid to push the boundaries and delivers just the right amount of shock and hilarity. Plus, his Mel Gibson joke is unmatched.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Our favourite comedic duo (pictured above) and real-life BFFs know precisely how to tell a joke, land it and shade it just enough to keep it cheeky yet burn. They’ve hosted the show from 2013 to 2015 and their chemistry paired with topical comedy is pure gold. Also, nobody roasts George Clooney better. We’re still waiting to see how they top the Amal Clooney and James Cameron jokes.

Seth Myers

Seth Myers hosted the 2018 award ceremony, which came right on the heels of the #MeToo torrent. He set the tone right off the bat with, “For the male nominees in the room tonight, this is the first time in three months it won’t be terrifying to hear your name read out loud.” Dapper, charismatic and just the right amount critical, Myers effectively took down Woody Allen, Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump, while delivering the laughs.

In the new season of The Viral Fever’s (TVF) college drama Girls Hostel, the medical versus dental wars continue between the girls.

The dental girls have been moved to a newer, smaller hostel where they’re facing a water crisis and other problems. This new season, unlike the first, focuses on more mature topics such as college politics, elections, eve teasing and more.
