'Argo', 'Homeland' and 'Les Misérables' may have walked off with the big prizes at Sunday night's Golden Globes - but the evening's biggest winners were arguably its hosts, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The New York Times praised the duo's "amazing opening give-and-take riff", adding that "their mischievous spirit infused the rest of the night". Entertainment Weekly noted that "nearly every joke told or stunt pulled by hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler was solidly, often exceedingly, funny" - while the The Hollywood Reporter called them "fantastic, funny hosts". The Washington Post, meanwhile, lauded "America’s best gal pals" for making the awards "bearable".
And they weren't wrong. The current leading ladies of American comedy came up with zinger after perfectly timed zinger, gently mocking Hollywood (as is the Golden Globes norm) and delivering terrific one-liners about stars like Taylor Swift, Ben Affleck and Meryl Streep. They even managed to tackle the 'Zero Dark Thirty' torture controversy with a brilliant joke at James Cameron's expense.
Here's a selection of some of their funniest Golden Globes one-liners...
