Bill Clinton Crashes the Golden Globes, Amy Poehler: 'That Was Hillary Clinton's Husband!'

Former President Clinton was a surprise guest at the Golden Globe Awards show last night. He came out to a prolonged standing ovation before introducing best picture nominee Lincoln.

"A tough fight to push a bill through a bitterly divided House of Representatives. Winning it required the president to make a lot of unsavory deals that had nothing to do with the big issue."

Clinton paused for effect. "I wouldn't know anything about that."

But the real fun is watching the celebrity cut-aways during this standing ovation. Of course the camera went to Obama mega-donor George Clooney first, but check out Lena Dunham's shocked expression at :23, Steven Spielberg's salute at :26, and Clinton's patented thumbs up and crowd point at :30.

And be sure to watch for the must-see moment at 1:49, when cohost Amy Poehler follows Clinton with a breathless exclamation and ode to a certain secretary of State she used to imitate

Check out Bill Clinton introduce the film "Lincoln" at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
