Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globe Awards

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler poked fun at Kathryn Bigelow and Anne Hathaway while hosting the Golden Globe Awards.

The comediennes proved a huge hit as they joked their way through the award show in Los Angeles last night (13.01.13).

When introducing director Kathryn's latest film, 'Zero Dark Thirty' - about a CIA agent tracking terrorist Osama Bin Laden - Amy joked she understood torture because "she spent three years married to James Cameron."

Kathryn was married to 'Terminator' and 'Avatar' director James - who is notoriously difficult to work with - from 1989 to 1991.

'Zero Dark Thirty' star Jessica Chastain later went on to pick up the trophy for Best Actress.

Turning their attention to Anne, the hosts referenced her awkward stint fronting rival award show The Oscars with James Franco in 2011.

Referring to her character in musical 'Les Miserables', Tina said: "I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned like that since you were onstage with James Franco at the Oscars."

However, Anne didn't have long to be upset as she was subsequently named Best Actress, Musical or Comedy for her role as Fantine in the French Revolution film, one of the three awards it picked up, alongside Best Actor for Hugh Jackman and Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

Others to come under fire from Tina, 42, and Amy, 41, included former Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais. They said he "could not be here tonight, because he is no longer technically in show business."

They also made a joke at the expense of 'Django Unchained' director Quentin Tarantino, calling him "the star of all my sexual nightmares."

After the cameras panned to Michael J. Fox, the hosts pointed to his table - which included his handsome 23-year-old son, Sam - and warned "Taylor Swift - stay away from Michael J. Fox's son," referring to the newly single singer, renowned for dating a number of Hollywood stars.
