The highlights of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's brilliant Golden Globes opening monologue.

Just when you thought they couldn’t get any better (who are we kidding, of course we did), Amy Poehler and Tina Fey nailed their Golden Globes opening monologue for the third year in a row.

The flawless execution of their dialogue has rendered it impossible for impending hosts to ever top these ladies (they began by calling their audience spoilt brats).

I mean, c’mon.

1. On how lucky George Clooney is. 

“George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case with Kofi Annan regarding Syria and was selected for a three-person commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza strip … so tonight her husband is getting the lifetime achievement award.”

2. On Russell Crowe’s recent ‘ageist’ comments

“Patricia Arquette is here, so wonderful in the film, Boyhood. Boyhood proves that there are still great roles for women over 40, as long as you get hired when you’re under 40.”

3. They took a timely jab at Bill Cosby …

“In Into the Woods, Cinderella runs from her prince, Rapunzel is thrown from a tower for her prince and Sleeping Beauty… just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby.”

4. But, as always, they also poked fun of themselves …

“Steve Carrell’s Foxcatcher look took two hours to put on, including his hairstyling and makeup. Just for comparison, it took me three hours today to prepare for my role as human woman.”

Yes Tina, just yes.

Bow down because #Queens.
