The 2014 Golden Globe Awards are just a few days away and hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are offering some drinking game tips for this year's big show!

"Any time you see a gown with sleeves, you're going to drink," Fey joked in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "Any time they cut to Tom Hanks for a reaction shot, do five push-ups and you will be ripped by the end of the ceremony."

Poehler added, "How about this for a drinking game? Every time I drink, everybody at home should drink. And if Bryan Cranston speaks, everybody has to do a little bit of meth. Just a touch, because that's all you need, just a touch."

When asked which celeb was the most drunk during last year's Globes, Poehler said, "The best fake drunk was Glenn Close. I guess it would probably be somebody's plus-one, like a disgruntled plus-one. But most people seemed to be in tip-top shape and on their beta blockers."

The hilarious duo also weighed in on Oprah Winfrey getting snubbed for her performance in "The Butler."

Fey said, "You know, as far as her acting career goes, she's young. She's got to get out there, do some summer stock. She will have her shot eventually."

"You know, being snubbed is not always a bad thing at these awards shows because you end up getting a lot of people coming up to you and telling you how great you are," Poehler told the trade. "I can't speak for Oprah, I only want Oprah to speak for me. I'd like it if you could track her down and ask her how I think she feels about it. And whatever she says, I agree with."

As for which nominated movie they're rooting for this year? "I think it would be funny if I came out in an 'August: Osage County sweatshirt,'" Poehler said. "It would be funny to just be really rooting for one movie. But I haven't seen them all. Right now, I'm rooting for 'Avatar.' I know it's crazy, but I think 'Avatar' could really pull it out this year. So I'm putting my money on 'Avatar.'"

The 71st Annual Golden Globes pre-show begins at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT on Sunday Jan. 12, on NBC.
