Country Stars Shut Out at Golden Globes

It was probably a fun night for everyone except the couple of country stars at the Golden Globe Awards, held yesterday evening (Jan. 13) in Los Angeles. Both Keith Urban and Taylor Swift were nominated in the Best Original Song category, and both went home empty-handed.

Keith was nominated (with songwriter Monty Powell) for the Act of Valor song "For You," while Taylor (along with The Civil Wars and T Bone Burnett) was nominated for "Safe & Sound" from the Hunger Games soundtrack. Adele's James Bond theme "Skyfall" ended up winning the category.

But Taylor (and her highly publicized dating life) had to endure a little more insult than that. The superstar showed up to the party alone, following her recent breakup with One Direction's Harry Styles. Globes co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler seized the opportunity to have a little fun at Taylor's expense in one bit between presentations.

"You know what, Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox's son," said Tina Fey, to roars of laughter.

"Or, go for it," said Poehler, cheerfully coming to Taylor's defense.

"No, she needs some 'me' time to learn about herself," reiterated Tina.
