The general consensus is that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed their opening monologue Sunday night, with notable jokes about Kathryn Bigelow's marriage to James Cameron, Anne Hathaway's Oscar hosting duties and Meryl Streep's "performance" in the flu.
Poehler's dig at director James Cameron got one of the biggest laughs. Referencing Cameron's ex-wife, director Kathryn Bigelow, Poehler said: "I haven't been following the controversy surrounding 'Zero Dark Thirty,' but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron."
