Will Ferrell And Kristen Wiig Hilariously Botch Plot Of Every Movie Nominated For Best Comedy Actress

While presenting the Golden Globe for โ€œBest Lead Actress in a Comedy or Musical,โ€ Saturday Night Live alumni Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig hilariously feigned ignorance of the nominated films, ad libbing completely incorrect plot lines for each of the actresses involved.

Pretending as if theyโ€™ve never presented awards before, and under the pretense that knowing the great performances of each nominee is essential to the gig, Ferrell and Wiig proceeded to make up stories to cover for their having โ€œnot seenโ€ the movies.

The pair took Emily Bluntโ€˜s role in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen literally, praising her fishing skills, and her face, and Yemen, and stuff.

As for perennial nominee Judy Dench, โ€œWhereโ€™d she come from?โ€ the pair asked before explaining that she was โ€œa police officerโ€ in her โ€œfirst-ever movie,โ€ The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence was praised for โ€œthe silver she collectedโ€ and the notebook she so vigorously guarded.

Quartet star Maggie Smith, according to Ferrell and Wiig, was fantastic in a movie about some mysterious โ€œquardet,โ€ despite the fact that โ€œno one knows what it is.โ€

And then โ€œMerry-El Streepโ€ received praise for being a โ€œsassy sheriffโ€ in Hope Springs.

The wining and dining Hollywood audience largely found the bit hilariousโ€ฆ except for Tommy Lee Jones. He was NOT impressed. (See 3:36 into video.)
