This Sunday (1/12/14) is the Golden Globes. The Hollywood award show will be hosted for the second year in a row by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. You know what that means. Get out those glasses; it’s time to drink!
Last year, the two comedians informed The Hollywood Reporter about a very fun and efficient drinking game the audience can play while watching the Globes. The rules include the following: any time an actress cries in a speech, drink; any time you see a person actively not listening to someone onstage, drink. Any time someone says, “I didn’t prepare anything!” take a drink. There were even strange rules such as, “Any time anyone thanks Harvey Weinstein (studio executive), eat a meatball sub.”
The SNL alums will be hosting the show again this year, and they decided they needed to update their drinking game. When speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, each one of the awesome twosome had additions to their famed drinking game. First off, Tina Fey spoke about her new roles: “Any time you see a gown with sleeves, you’re going to drink. Any time they cut to Tom Hanks for a reaction shot, do five push-ups and you will be ripped by the end of the ceremony.” It seems you’ll get a fine buzz and some muscles if you follow Fey’s rules.
Well, Amy Poehler’s additions are a little bit extreme. The Parks & Rec star told THR, “How about this for a drinking game? Every time I drink, everybody at home should drink. And if Bryan Cranston speaks, everybody has to do a little bit of meth. Just a touch, because that’s all you need, just a touch.” We’re guessing that last part might be a joke. Just maybe.
Get that bottle ready, the Golden Globes air Sunday, Jan. 12 at 8 pm EST on NBC.
