Shortly before Lily Tomlin arrived on set to play an aging feminist in Paul Weitz's dramatic comedy "Admission," she had a flash of inspiration. What if she had a breastplate made to cover her upper torso, tattooed it and then appeared in the film shirtless while chopping wood? The act would perfectly symbolize '60s radical feminism. "It seemed like a fun idea, but it was a little more than anyone could handle," Tomlin said in an interview, offering a laugh. "So I had an arm tattoo of Bella [Abzug]

For the last three years, the Golden Globes have been worshiping at the altar of Ricky Gervais, who always showed up, beer in hand, to rib, mock and belittle the celebrities gathered to accept awards. This year's ceremony, with co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, promises to be a return to a different type of hosting style -- one that's a little goofier and much less mean. Or as Fey says in their first aired promo for the ceremony, "We're so excited we'll be talking in classic Hollywood voices for all our banter!"

By the time Megan Fox, Ed Helms and Jessica Alba strode into the Beverly Hilton ballroom at 5:20 a.m., their captive audience of reporters and publicists seemed nearly comatose. Press check-in for the Golden Globes ceremony had begun more than an hour before. Some publicists said they hadn't slept Wednesday night. And it showed. Aside from a few nods or nudges, most of the 25 categories announced Thursday morning - and the jokes that came with them - garnered no reaction. Golden Globe nominations: The complete list That could be because many of the nominations came as no surprise: "Argo," "Lincoln" and "Zero Dark Thirty" topped the list of contenders . Two announcements that caused a stir were for Hollywood veterans.

The conventional wisdom is that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were picked to co-host the Golden Globes in January to burnish the ceremony's cool factor. But some Hollywood insiders regard the high profile selection as a way for the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. to poke the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for recently opting to announce Oscar nominations three days before the 2013 Globes ceremony. Fey and Poehler are "really a smart and wonderful choice," says HFPA member H.J. Park, who writes for the Korea Times and reviews movies for Radio Seoul.

The high-profile pairing of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host the Golden Globes was seen by some in the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. as a little poke in the eye of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for its recent decision to announce its Oscar nominees three days before the 2013 Globes ceremony. "It is really a smart and wonderful choice," says HFPA member H.J. Park, who writes for the Korea Times and reviews movies for Radio Seoul. "It's a coup against the academy who hates us. " Well ... "hate" might be a bit strong of a word.

The news that TV funny ladies Amy Poehler and Tina Fey would co-host the Golden Globes on Jan. 13 was met with a chorus approval from fans when it was announced Monday. The appointment of two hilarious and accomplished, fortysomething  women to one of the most high-profile hosting gigs in Hollywood is certainly something to celebrate, but so is the prospect of seeing these frequent collaborators onstage together once again. Their partnership goes back to at least 2001, when Poehler joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live.” By then, Fey had been head writer at the legendary show for two years and had just started appearing in sketches.

NBC funnywomen Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Golden Globes next year. The gig will reunite the "SNL" alums. Already familiar with the ceremony with their respective TV shows - Fey is the creator and star of "30 Rock," which bids farewell this season, and Amy Poehler stars in "Parks and Recreation" - the friends will impart their comic talents as hosts of the movie and television fete. “Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year's festivities is a major coup,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming, NBC Entertainment.

With “30 Rock” winding down its seven-season run in just a few months, Tina Fey has a lot on her mind: namely, what will happen to Tracy Morgan once the show is over. On Wednesday night Fey paid a visit to “Late Night,” where her former “Weekend Update” co-anchor Jimmy Fallon asked about what it's like working now on “30 Rock,” knowing the end is in sight. “I'm sad every day,” she said. “Half the day I'm crying, then I'm like, 'I'm sick of you people!

NEW YORK - When "30 Rock" premiered in the fall of 2006, it was expected to be crushed by NBC's other new series, also set behind the scenes of a late-night sketch comedy show, Aaron Sorkin's heavily hyped "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. " "The first year, our biggest concern was that we thought that NBC had this very clear imperative to choose between us and 'Studio 60,'" recalls Alec Baldwin, who plays slick corporate executive Jack Donaghy on the sitcom, which launches its final, 13-episode season Thursday night.
