There’s so much happening at the 2014 Golden Globes that you might’ve missed Tina Fey’s jab at Taylor Swift. But luckily for you, we’re experts at insults and we know one when we hear one. But before we can talk about what happened on stage tonight though, we have to rewind to a Vanity Fair interview that Taylor Swift did last year. You know, the one where she said there’s a special place in hell for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler because they made fun of her during the 2013 Golden Globes. Remember it now? Getting hot and bothered all over again that a pop singer damned two comedians to Hell for making a joke? Okay, cool, back to the future we go!
So tonight Amy Poehler finally won a Golden Globe for her performance as Leslie Knope in Parks and Rec. And I say finally because she should’ve won that award approximately four hundred nominations ago. But that’s a rant for last year — she won tonight and it was great and I personally high-fived one million angels in excitement. When she and Tina got back on stage together after her win, Tina congratulated her and nonchalantly said, “I love you and there’s a special place in hell for you.” Which was clearly a jab at that Taylor Swift interview and clearly a way to remind Taylor that she didn’t get the last word. Without even saying Taylor’s name, she managed to one up her. So yeah, the bar for throwing shade in 2014 just got a whole lot higher.
