Jibes aplenty

Jibes aplenty
Actors Tina Fey, (L-R), Margaret Cho and Amy Poehler perform a comedy sketch at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California January 11, 2015.

The host of the Golden Globes next year, whoever it is, has some huge shoes to fill.

Comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have said they will no longer host the ceremony after their third consecutive and final Globes gig this year, a decision that led even the esteemed Meryl Streep to comment on stage on Sunday: "I just want to say, how much are we going to miss Amy and Tina?"

Fey, 44, and Poehler, 43, certainly did not hold back in their final outing. As Poehler joked on the red carpet before the show: "What are they going to do? Fire us?"

Which meant that anything was up for mocking, from the usual jibes at certain celebrities to the thornier topics such as the Bill Cosby sexual harassment charges.

Most jokes worked, some not so much, but what was clear was that the audience did not get enough of them throughout the night.
