Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are going to host the Golden Globes and I am totally excited about it.
So the Globes have totally outdone the Academy in their choice for hosts. Okay, so I’m a huge, huge fan of both of these ladies, Tina Fey can do whatever she wants and she’ll get a pass from me, and same goes for Amy Poehler, because Parks & Recreation is one of my favourite shows on television right now (sidenote: If we’re talking about how funny Parks & Rec is can we take a minute to talk about how good the season premiere of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was? So funny, I can’t even.).
Mean Girls is one of my favourite movies, and these two ruled SNL. Basically what I’m saying is that Baby Mama aside (because I’ve seen it, and I’m choosing not to comment on it because if I’m being honest I didn’t think it was great.), these two can do no wrong together, they’re amongst my favourite celebrity besties, and I’m totally and completely excited to see what they come up with for the Globes, especially after Ricky Gervais failed to live up to expectations this year. It’s also giving me hope for the coming awards season, after the Academy made the embarrassing decision to choose Seth MacFarlane to host the most important awards show of the year.
The duo will be hosting the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards, airing on January 13, and the producers had this to say about their decision:
It’s exciting to have two of the most respected names in comedy. Amy and Tina’s well known chemistry along with their spontaneity and glamour makes them a perfect fit for the Golden Globes.
What do you think? Will you miss Ricky Gervais, would you want him back? Are you happy with Tina and Amy? Who else would you like to see host in the future?
