Oh, how we miss the glory days of Joan and Melissa. The current crop of sideline reporters terrorizing the Globes’ red carpet and backstage areas make those Rivers gals look like Walter Cronkite. Here, in ascending order of horrifying, are their most memorable moments.

Ryan Seacrest
Basically competent, though we cringed when he implied that by bringing a ”girl friend” as her date, Jessica Biel actually meant…girlfriend. Keep dreaming, dude.

Debbie Matenopoulos
Suggested Angelina Jolie would rather ”be in a third-world country saving kids, because she’s that kind of girl.”

Maria Menounos
The Access Hollywood bobblehead first ignored best actress America Ferrera backstage, and then asked her, ”What do you say to all those people…that did not want you to play Ugly Betty?”

Giuliana DePandi
Knocked over one of Helen Mirren’s statuettes during the postshow, and then screamed ”Oh, my God!” a record 10 times.
