Ah, it feels like it’s been so long! After a three year run with Ricky Gervais at the helm, the Golden Globes are turning to two of TV’s most charming leading ladies–and one hell of a comedic duo: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. This is very. Exciting. News.
According to a variety of sources, they’re set to host the 70th annual Globes, set to air in January. They will also be the first female duo to host the show–ever. Lady history!
“Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late-night programming for NBC Entertainment in a press release. “Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-staring roles in Baby Mama.”
Remember this! (“Bitch is the new black.”)
And this! (One of the funniest political parodies in the history of the universe.)
It’s all coming back to us now. (We can work Celine into anything.) Besides, in the Fey-Poehler heyday, there were nights of endless pleasure.
OK, we’re all done with videos now. Let the Golden Globes party planning begin. January 13, 2013.
