What we learned above all else at the Golden Globes on Sunday night is that pairing Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell to present at an award show is comic gold.
The two presented best animated motion picture, and an innocent question by Wiig to Carell led to one of the most memorable moments of the night.
Wiig asked Carell to name the first animated movie he had seen; he answered by saying it was “Fantasia” when he was 6 years old. Carell went on to say that when he and his dad came out of the movie his mom was in the lobby waiting for them, and that’s the moment when she told his dad that she wanted a divorce.
Wiig, never to be outdone, said that her first time seeing an animated movie was “Bambi,” but that it was the same day that she and her family had to put her three dogs down. It was also the last day she saw her grandpa.
The bit is hilarious thanks to their dead-serious deliveries. We could have watched them riff on stage the whole night.
