Amy Poehler on Hosting Golden Globes: “Like Fools, We Are Giving It Another Shot”

We were super psyched yesterday when we found out that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would be back to host the 2014 Golden Globe Awards — and 2015’s ceremony, too! Is it Christmas already?

And if you’re a big fan of Saturday Night Live, you will love next year’s awards.

According to Variety, Amy told the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that she and her bestie, Tina, will “treat Golden Globe hosting duties like SNL.

“I can’t stress enough how little we will prepare until very close to the show,” Amy said. “We’ll treat it like ‘Weekend Update’ — it’s a little SNL style and have to work backwards. We get a lot of jokes, write our own, talk bits and we work through them. You can’t really do this kind of stuff too early and you can’t over think it.”

And, like all great award show hosts, Amy knows the key is to keep it simple — she and Tina will just be “setting the tone for a really fun evening. I think as a host, that’s your job.”

Considering their last gig hosting the awards brought in over 19.7 million viewers, it’s no surprise that the comedic duo was chosen to return. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next. Bring on the funny!
