After three years of hosting the Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler joked all the way through the ceremony about their last turn as hosts on NBC and left the audience with a hint as to who could be emceeing the show during the 2016 Golden Globes. North Korea was always going to be a matter of satire at the major events following its attempted censorship of “The Interview.” Read on for further details of this scoop.

According to MailOnline, the comedienne dressed in full military regalia first appeared on stage during the middle of the award ceremony when Fey and Poehler introduced her.

“The biggest story in Hollywood this year was when North Korea threatened an attack if Sony Pictures released ‘The Interview,’ forcing us all to pretend we wanted to see it,” Poehler said in her Golden Globes monologue with Fey. And Fey followed up, “North Korea referred to The Interview as ‘absolutely intolerable’ and ‘a wanton act of terror’. Even more amazing: [that was] not the worst review the movie got.”

To mock North Korea and the iniquitous Sony Hack Margaret Cho has done an awesome but controversial cameo. She was seen as a hard-nosed North Korean soldier who’s besotted quietly obsessed with living legend Meryl Streep. Michael Keaton also got into action after the hosts demanded he take a picture of Cho and Streep. Benedict Cumberbatch also jumped into action. The picture has gone viral on Twitter.

A series of gags making light of the recluse state was not a tolerable for all and sundry. Cho’s satirical skit is now dubbed as racist, and the public is infuriated, expressing the wrath on Twitter. Check out some of the responses on Cho’s cameo at 72nd Golden Globe Awards ceremony, as posted on Twitchy.

Margaret Moran Cho is an American comedian, fashion designer, actress, author, and singer-songwriter. She has recurrently supported LGBT rights and has won awards for her humanitarian efforts on behalf of women, Asians and the LGBT community.

She has also directed and appeared in music videos. She also has her own a clothing line. As an actress, she has played roles such as Charlene Lee in “It’s My Party” and that of John Travolta’s FBI colleague in the action movie “Face/Off.” She also plays as Teri Lee in Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva.”

At the end of the awards night, Cho’s character proclaimed that the “show is over after ‘Boyhood‘ won the award for Best Motion Picture for Drama. I host next year. Good night.”
