Tina Fey and Amy Poehler sign on to host the next two Golden Globe Awards

10.15.2013

I didn't watch the Golden Globes last year, but the internet was buzzing the next morning about how awesome hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were and how they should host everything under the sun from then on. Well, apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has taken note as both Fey and Poehler will not only host next year's Golden Globes Awards show, but also the following year's ceremony. Yup, that's two more years of the Fey/Poehler dynamic handing out golden statues. I like both actress/comedians, particularly in their respective TV roles in 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation and they undoubtedly have a great dynamic together, so why not lock them in for a couple of years, right? Better than playing the hosting shuffle game, especially when you've got a good thing going.

Here's the details:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have signed on to host NBC's The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, which will be broadcast live on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014 from 5-8 p.m. (PT) and 8-11 p.m. (ET) from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

As part of their deal, Fey and Poehler will also host The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2015.

The announcement was made today by Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Theo Kingma, dick clark productions and NBC.

"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," said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. "We're elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years."

"We are thrilled Amy and Tina have decided to return as hosts of the Golden Globe Awards for the next two years," said Kingma. "Their return ensures that the Golden Globes will once again be the biggest, best and most entertaining awards celebration of the year."

"Tina and Amy have a truly unique chemistry making them one of the most talented and captivating pairings of all-time," said Allen Shapiro, CEO of dick clark productions. "We are thrilled to have them back in 2014 and 2015."

Extra Tidbit: Who do you think would make a great host for the Golden Globes or Academy Awards that hasn't already been mentioned? I'd like to see Graham Norton or the duo of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Okay, so I'm still in shock over the loss of Breaking Bad...

I really dig the two of them

Who cares if they use the same duo two more years, it's better than being stuck with someone who can't host themselves out of a hat or someone too old to be active on stage.

I like the two of them and their work and think they are very talented, but I would rather see someone else host. A little variety never killed anyone.

Except that one guy who choked to death on a miniature version of Variety magazine.

And yet another opportunity for Amy Poehler to ride Tina Fey's coattails. Wonder how many more jokes she'll rip off for these events

I might agree with you if Amy's "Tourettes Girl" wasn't one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

I love these two classy actresses. They should have their own show together.

Something like French and Saunders with these two on a regular basis would be really cool.

They did great on this recent one, a whole lot better than Seth MacFarlane did at the Oscars. They're a comic double act that seems absolutely natural, and I really like how they handled Taylor Swift's "special place in hell" reaction to their joke about her having to stay away from Michael J. Fox's son. Poehler said "I'm probably going to hell anyway, but for boring tax stuff."
