Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to Host the 2013 Golden Globes
Yes, both of them. Together. As a team. If this is the closest we’ll ever get to a Parks and Recreation-30 Rock crossover event, we’ll gladly take it.
Former Saturday Night Live castmates and current NBC stars Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to co-host the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards this coming January. Two of the funniest women on TV right now, Tina and Amy are guaranteed to draw viewers and make the evening a supremely entertaining one.
“Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment, in a statement. “Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing.”
Amen to that.
They certainly proved their comedic mettle at the 2012 Emmy Awards, when Tina — having claimed to have forgotten her glasses — read gibberish from the teleprompter, and Amy coordinated an amusing speech-swap stunt with Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
