Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Will Host Golden Globes
Seems things are looking for up next year’s Golden Globes, with the announcement that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to host the glitzy ceremony. Something to look forward to for January, then!
The NBC funnywomen and “SNL” alums are good friends, and according to the LA Times, both are pretty familiar with the way things go at the Globes, due to their respective TV shows — Fey with 30 Rock (being the creator and star), which is sadly coming to an end this season, and Poehler who stars in Parks and Recreation. So, they should do just fine, then — but do you think they’ll draw in more viewers than Ricky Gervais? He hosted the 2012 awards with 16.9 million viewers.
Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming, NBC Entertainment expressed his excitement over the new hosts: “Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup. Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on ‘SNL’ to their successful co-starring roles in Baby Mama.”
And you’ll be able to watch the 70th annual Golden Globes ceremony on January 13. Excited yet?
