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."

    Granted, I didn't watch the Golden Globes (awards shows for artistic endeavors seems silly) but judging from the tone of this, it doesn't seem fair. When Seth McFarlane hosted the Oscars, they said he was to fratty & misogynistic, so what do these folks want anyway??

    "In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so."
