Marlon Brawndo - 2019-01-09 Most of the monologue was so bad. Oh kept tripping over lines and the end speech she gave was good but it was jarring. One minute they are doing a bit and the next she goes right into Preach Mode. It was utterly confusing because with comedic monologues, you can't just segway into that shit. It doesn't gel well. She should have waited til maybe midway through the night.
It's infuriating that they chose to go with these two because they were mostly painfully unfunny. If you compare the whole monologue, which kind of just dragged along, with Ricky Gervais or Tina Fey and Amy Pohler, holy shit it failed horribly.
Also, Samburg just poached a previous bit he did where he roasted James Franco and that worked so much better. He tried to repeat the joke and it just didn't work.
Old_Zircon - 2019-01-09 I haven't watched an awards show in... ever? I can't remember sitting through one once in my life, but I looked at some more of this bit for context and I just assumed he was bombing on purpose because it's the Golden Globes and that's the only respectable way a person could participate in them.
On the other hand it's Andy Samberg so who knows if he has the self awareness to do that.
