Columnist: Golden Globes was a 'deep dive into pool of estrogen'

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler - the golden girls of the Golden Globes.

The hosts of the 71st annual golden globe awards helped the show draw its highest audience in 10 years.

According to Nielsen ratings, 20.9 million people watched the Golden Globes, and in case you missed it, the two former "Saturday Night Live" stars made women a focal point from the get-go.

But did the two comedians inject too much estrogen into Hollywood's annual awards show?

According to New York post writer, Kyle Smith, the show could have been called "Girls" and he wants a male host back.

"With its strenuously chummy hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, its saccharine-bordering-on-absurd acceptance speeches and its deluge of tearjerking “inspirational” commercials that sought to forge a hitherto unsuspected link between Golden Globes and Humanity’s Greatest Achievements, the night was a deep dive into a pool of estrogen."

But the company has been operating without government oversight for over 20 years.

CNN's Jean Casarez has the story.
