Amy Poehler And Tina Fey Made The Perfect George Clooney Joke

While pointing out how badass his wife is. Definitely the best joke of the night.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey once again didn't hold back during their opening monologue at the Golden Globes, but the best joke of the bunch was one that totally ragged on George Clooney.

NBC

Tina Fey said:

"George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year.

"Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected to a three-person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip.

"So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award."

NBC

Clooney wasn't the only one who seemed to enjoy it.

George Clooney as the trophy husband. Yes.

Tina Fey juxtaposing Amal's international resume with George Clooney's lifetime achievement award is FEMINIST GENIUS. #GoldenGlobes

This is just the latest in the back-and-forth between Clooney and the hosts. At last year's awards show, the ladies teased him for his tendency to date younger women.

Later in the year, the Monuments Men star retaliated for their jokes with an awesome prank involving Matt Damon.
