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".

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...
