Having 30 Rock‘s Fey and Parks and Rec‘s Poehler “on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said NBC’s president of alternative programming, Paul Telegdy. “Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-starring roles in Baby Mama.”

Added Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Aida Takla-O’Reilly: “The unparalleled comedic timing of Tina and Amy will surely have viewers wanting to tune-in to see them in action. The HFPA is thrilled to have the magnetic duo be a part of the show’s 70th anniversary!”

    YAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel like we’ve been waiting for this for years! So much better than Ricky Gervais… sorry Ricky, I do like you, but Tina + Amy are everything. <3

    • Trent says:

      I find Ricky Gervais arrogant and annoying as hell, but this is the BEST IDEA EVER!! Tina & Amy + drunk celebs = an awards show actually worth watching. Maybe they’ll even get Jimmy Fallon (who was great when he hosted the Emmys) to star with them for the opening musical number. Well done, HFPA and NBC!

  6. David says:

  26. Ella says:

    Sweet!!!! This has got to be good…..

  27. Karen says:

    This is great news. Amy Poehler has been the funniest thing at the Emmy’s two years running, and putting her together with Tina Fey only makes it that much better. I have to say, the Globes knows how to get great hosts

  28. Jay says:

    Globes will be >>>>> Oscars. Love Poehler and her bits at the Emmys, A+ choice.

  29. Blinged Up says:

    Here’s another person who’s going to watch the Golden Globes for the first time EVER! Perfect!

  30. Kristen says:

    YESSSS! Can’t wait! *High fiving a million angels in celebration*

  31. John Sheets says:

    Why do people slobber over these two? Their shows are in the tank, and beyond short skits, they really aren’t that funny. NBC must be short on star power to pick these two.

  32. Eve says:

    I only watched the Globes for Ricky Gervais. What an incredible letdown.

  33. Joey says:

    Anyone who thinks these two will be funnier than Ricky Gervais is flat out crazy. I’m dumbfounded that people are excited about this.

    • Matthew Thomas says:

      They will and have been funnier than Gervais on several occasions in award shows. Last year’s best actress skit at the Emmys was orchestrated by Amy Poehler, as was this year’s speech mix up. And Tina Fey’s acceptance speeches have always been the highlight of most award shows.

  34. They totally disprove the “chicks can’t be funny” malarkey. Any way they can get Maya Rudolph and make it a trifecta?

  35. Linda says:

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

  36. Jennifer says:

    May I say that they will (and already) steal the show !!!
    Who are the nominees ??? don’t care
    Who are the winners ??? Tina and Amy

  37. Charlie T says:

    Happy about the new hosts & hoping they pop some pretentious self congatulory fevered egos in the room as well & as funny as Gervais did

  38. Ryan says:

    Gotta be kidding me. Two of the most annoying, humorless females donning hosting duties for an awards show. I feel like slapping that stupid Tina Fey.

  39. ddutchie88 says:

    best news ever

  40. Line says:

    this is the best thing that could’ve ever happened to human kind. And I am soo grateful that it happens…Tina and Amy together…Tina and Amy hosting.
    That will be the best award show ever!!

  41. RKar says:

    Inspired! Not sure I will be looking forward to an awards show more!

  42. Erbear4474 says:

    YES!!!!! I can’t wait, the opening alone will be amazing!! :o)

  43. Zoe says:

    Brilliant! I haven’t felt this excited about an awards show in a long time.

  44. Lorie says:
