Despicable Me co-stars Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig bagged the night’s biggest laughs at the Golden Globes in Hollywood.
The pair brought the awards ceremony to a standstill with their three-minute exchange remembering the first time they went to see an animated film on the big screen.
They were immediately installed as favourites to be the next hosts of the Oscars after feeling the love on Twitter and thoroughly upstaging the host, talkshow presenter Jimmy Fallon.
That Carrell & Wiig intro was amazing. Solid gold deadpan.

Jimmy Fallon following Steve Carrell and Kristen Wiig is like an unqualified, celebrity jackass following Obama.

Forget whatever award Steve Carrell & Kristen Wiig are presenting and just give it to them

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the winner of this year’s best animated feature film – which the pair were introducing, was…. Zootopia.
