Tina Fey and Amy Poehler stood by their words and did not shy away from talking about Bill Cosby and his predicament on the Golden Globes 2015. Bill Cosby, who is currently in the hot seat for numerous rape allegations against him, is the butt of some jokes made by the comedian and her co-host, livening up the night.

Hollywood Reporter reported that Tina Fey and co-host Amy Poehler took the chance to poke fun at the Bill Cosby issue at the Golden Globes, as they have said they would do. After going onstage and addressing the A-list stars and VIP guests in attendance as "despicable, spoiled, minimally talented brats," the hosts made several rounds of jokes, including Bill Cosby ones.

In particularly, they offered up an alternative plot of "Into the Woods." "Sleeping Beauty just thought that she was grabbing coffee with Bill Cosby," Poehler joked regarding the character's appearance in the Disney musical. Aside from this, the two also impersonated Cosby, quipping, "I put the pills in the people that the people did not want put into them."

The jokes were well-received. Gawker put out a snapshot of the crowd's reaction after the first Cosby joke was delivered. On the picture, Jessica Chastain literally gawked with her mouth open upon hearing the joke. Clooney was at the back laughing while Bill Murray was weirdly silent.

Tina Fey did warn that she and Amy would do these jokes. In an interview with the Television Critics Association, Fey was asked if she is going to mention Cosby's name or refer to his ordeal during the Golden Globes 2015 and the comedienne said yes.

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards is the third consecutive awards show that the Tina and Amy hosted together. They promised that this would be their last though. Aside from Bill Cosby, the hosts poked fun at the issue of North Korean hacking, Reese Witherspoon, George Clooney and his wife, Amal Alamuddin and Steve Carrell. For the comedic hosts, North Korea reaction to the "The Interview," calling it "absolutely intolerable and a wanton act of terror," is not the worst review that the controversial movie received.
