Ratings are in for last night's Golden Globes, the second year the ceremony has been hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, and it was the most-watched Golden Globes since 2004. 20.9 million viewers tuned in, 6% more than last year. Ratings were up 2% amongst adults 18-49. Last year's Poehler/Fey ceremony also saw an increase in ratings that led the show to a five-year high. The duo has already signed on to host the awards show in 2015, and I wouldn't be surprised if they're asked to keep doing it indefinitely after that.
Earlier this year, the Hollywood Foreign Press announced that Woody Allen will be the recipient of the 2014 Cecil B. DeMille Award at this year's Golden Globes, and since Woody Allen notoriously never attends awards shows and doesn't care for the west coast, it was safe to assume he wouldn't be there to accept the prize. Now, EW reports that Allen's frequent collaborator Diane Keaton will be accepting the award on his behalf at the ceremony, which is set for January 12th. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be hosting the Golden Globes, so hopefully, they can rope Diane Keaton into a funny bit.
