Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to Host the Golden Globes in 2014 — and 2015!
The producers of the Golden Globe Awards clearly know a good thing when they see it!
After 19.7 million viewers watched TV comediennes/besties Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the 2012 ceremony in January — the award show's best ratings in six years — the Hollywood Foreign Press and Dick Clark productions enlisted the gals to host the show in 2014 and 2015.
"Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business, and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season," raved NBC president of alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy, per The Hollywood Reporter. "We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years."
We're elated, too! We love these former Saturday Night Live co-stars and Weekend Update co-anchors — in movies like Mean Girls and Baby Mama and in their solo TV projects, 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation. Plus, their peanut-gallery catcalls to host Neil Patrick Harris was one of the highlights of this year's Emmys show!
Now all that's left to do is to wonder who'll host next year's Oscars! (Please let it be Jennifer Lawrence … please let it be Jennifer Lawrence…)
Are you thrilled that Tina and Amy are back on board for two more years — or super-thrilled? Let us know your thoughts below!
