Tina Fey Explains Why Women Get Drunk at the Golden Globes

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler

Are the Golden Globes really that big of a big drunk fest?
Tina: Some how, no matter what time you get there, you always just missed the food. I think it’s a scam. I don’t think they make any food. You get there and there’s just booze on the table and a box of candy … All the women haven’t eaten for days so they have half a glass of wine and they’re gone. [HP]

Tina Fey’s brilliant show 30 Rock is leaving us on January 31 (sad face!), but she is mercifully not going anywhere and will be seen hosting the Golden Globes this weekend January 13 alongside the equally hilarious Amy Poehler.

The two hostesses with the mostest(es?) did a hilarious interview recently in which they waxed eloquent on all things award show hosts are expected to know: the value of insult comedy, what it’s like to be the first female hosts of the Golden Globes, and why so many actresses get drunk at the awards show.

Fey’s astute (and we assume completely true) observation: “All the women haven’t eaten for days so they have half a glass of wine and they’re gone.”

Check out the full and funny read by clicking on the link. Then come back this weekend and tell us how you think the Fey-Poehler duo did as hosts.
