Tonight’s Golden Globes boast new hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The funny women replace former host Ricky Gervais, and they have the potential to drawn in new viewers who are fans of the comedians, but who otherwise wouldn’t watch the awards.
For any new viewers who might need a little extra incentive to watch the three-hour award show in its entirety, Fey and Poehler, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, have some comical tips for a Golden Globes drinking game.
Here are the rules, from Fey: “Any time an actress cries in a speech, drink. Any time you see a person actively not listening to someone onstage, drink.”
And from Poehler, take a drink: “Any time someone says, ‘I didn’t prepare anything!’”
Also, remove an article of clothing when 1. someone mentions Judi Dench and 2. when Maggie Smith wins something.
From Fey, here’s an added challenge: “Any time anyone thanks Harvey Weinstein, eat a meatball sub.”
Ready the meatballs.
