Tina Fey and Amy Poehler sign on to host Golden Globes through 2015

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are coming back to the Golden Globes. And back again.

The former Saturday Night Live duo, who hosted last year’s Globes to much acclaim — and a 28 percent jump in the 18-49 demo, natch — has agreed to host the next two Golden Globes Awards, in 2014 and 2015, NBC announced today. Speculation that they would return began nearly immediately after last year’s show ended, and Poehler herself now seems prescient with one of her opening jokes. “We want to assure you that we have no intention of being edgy or offensive tonight,” Poehler said during last year’s Globes, “because as Ricky [Gervais] learned the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times.”

“Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of Alternative and Late Night Programming.  “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”

Golden Globes to honor Woody Allen's career

Woody

The organizers of the Golden Globe Awards say they will honor Woody Allen for his contributions to filmmaking.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association said Friday that Allen will receive the 2014 Cecil B. DeMille Award.

A tribute to the 77-year-old actor, writer, and director will be included in the 71st annual Golden Globe ceremony set for Jan. 12. Morgan Freeman and Martin Scorsese are among the previous recipients.

Allen’s much-honored films include Annie Hall, Hannah and Her Sisters, and Midnight in Paris, which won a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for its screenplay last year.

Owen's Oscar scorecard: Who's up, who's down, and why

Last Thursday, when the Academy Awards nominations were announced, it was one of those moments when the nominations were very clarifying. Lincoln leading the pack (with 12), combined with the shocking roll call of snubs in the Best Director category (No Affleck! No Bigelow! No Quentin! No guy-who-made-The King’s Speech-and-Les Miz as if he’d been placed on this earth to be the 21st-century answer to middlebrow Oscar taste), instantly brought a fuzzy, multi-movie race into absolute focus, with Lincoln and its director and screenwriter, Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner, the obvious — and, to my mind, deserving — front-runners, and everything else fading to the sidelines. I don’t necessarily think any of that is wrong. Yet the whole reason I like writing about the Oscars is that, while I don’t pretend to have any special powers of prognostication (especially when compared to the reigning odds-makers at EW), I do think that the reasons that certain movies, and actors and actresses, and writers and directors triumph over others on awards night is not a question that can be divorced from critical/aesthetic analysis. Even mediocre choices reflect an aesthetic, and also a way that movies interact with the world; the critic’s task is to define what that is. In that spirit, here are a few observations about why I think the winners will win. READ FULL STORY

Oscar Upheaval: What does 'Argo' Globes victory mean?

prize_fighter1_bannerEvery time it seems like the dust is settling, something kicks it back up again.

Just days after Ben Affleck’s epic directing snub for Argo seemed to invalidate that movie’s chances of winning Best Picture, it seems to be emerging as … the frontrunner?

Note the question mark in bold.

Argo won both best director and best drama at the Golden Globes last night (after claiming similar honors at the Broadcast Film Critics Awards on the night of the snub-tastic nominations), and even though there is no crossover between those groups and Academy voters, the victories have become rallying points for those who feel Affleck was done a grievous wrong. (The more divisive Kathryn Bigelow of Zero Dark Thirty and Tom Hooper of Les Miserables, also left off the Academy’s director list, don’t seem to be generating the same backlash. At least, not that I’ve heard so far.)

Could Argo claim the Oscar for Best Picture as the rest of the Academy tries to compensate for the directors branch overlooking him?

That was a theory put forth by many awards insiders and Academy voters at the parties last night. “If I were the frontrunner, I’d be worried,” said one member.

That means, once again, somebody needs to keep an eye on Lincoln’s back. READ FULL STORY

Why Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence turned down 'Inside the Actors Studio'

 In this week’s cover story, newly-minted Golden Globe best actress winner for Silver Linings Playbook Jennifer Lawrence told EW that her publicist recently turned down an offer for the 22-year-old to appear on Inside the Actors Studio. “Do you know how much that guy would hate me?” she said with her goofy chuckle about professorial host James Lipton. ‘’Tell me about your method?’ There is no method! I never know my lines! He would be horrified.” Besides, said Lawrence, surely that hot seat is meant for folks with a longer resume to show for themselves than hers. “I love that show but I’m not old enough. I’m not at a place yet where I can look back and think ‘Oh this how I….’ I’m not ready. And, please, I’m an animal.”

Composer Alexandre Desplat's very busy year

What do Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Moonrise Kingdom, and Rust and Bone have in common? The seemingly tireless French composer Alexandre Desplat wrote the scores to all of them. No stranger to awards, with five Oscar nominations and six Golden Globes nominations in his career so far (he won a Globe for The Painted Veil in 2007), Desplat is one of the main contenders in this year’s Best Original Score race, with a Globe and Oscar nomination for his work on Argo.

Regardless of whether he’ll walk away with his second Golden Globe statue on Sunday, Desplat’s music made quite an impact on film in 2012. EW checked in with him to talk about some of his recent films. Click past the jump to see a featurette on the making of the Argo score, and to read about the bleakness of Zero Dark Thirty and why Wes Anderson drives him crazy (in a good way).

Golden Globe nominee Rachel Weisz praises 'Magic Mike' actress Cody Horn: 'She wasn't acting. She was real.'

Early this morning, Rachel Weisz scored a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress for her work in the little-seen British indie The Deep Blue Sea, which earned strong critical reviews, but not much box office, back in March. “It hadn’t been part of the conversation leading up to this,” a surprised Weisz told EW about her nomination, “so it really came out of nowhere.”

Despite the attention, the English actress wasn’t determined to keep the focus on herself. She readily heaped praise on a few of her colleagues when asked to pick her favorite actress performances of the year.

Weisz’s first choice was a popular one this awards season. READ FULL STORY
