Why do we not let Kristen Wiig host everything?
Remember when she and Bill Hader somehow one-upped
hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler a few years ago? Well, she did it again at tonight's Golden Globes, this time with Steve Carell. The Despicable Me
co-stars were on hand to present Best Animated Film and things got hilariously depressing when Wiig asked if Carell remembered the first time he saw an animated film.
"I do, actually. Very well," Carell replied. "It was kind of a big deal. I was six years old and my dad took me to see Fantasia. It was astounding! The music, the spectacle of the whole thing -- it was kind of a life changing experience."
"Yeah," Wiig chimed in. "It's a classic."
"And as we were leaving the theater, there, standing in the lobby, was my mom," Carell continued. "And that was the moment she told my dad that she wanted a divorce. I never saw my father again after that day. Fantasia Day. What about you? What was the first animated film you saw?"
"Bambi. March 14, 1981," Wiig deadpanned. "It was the same day we had to put our dogs down. Three of 'em. Little Jack, Janet and Chrissy. My grandpa thought it would be fun to go to the movie, take our minds off it a bit. But, you know, Bambi's mom. And also that was the last day I saw my grandpa. He disappeared. And I didn't speak for two years."
Oh, and for the record, Zootopia won.
