Golden Globes Welcome Back Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for Next Two Years
They’re baaaack! Here’s some great news for fans of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler -- the duo just signed a two-year hosting deal with the Golden Globes, The Hollywood Reporter recently learned.
These funny ladies hosted the last Globes, and the results prove why they should host again. Not only did Fey and Poehler generate positive reviews, but they also helped earn the awards show a total of 19.7 million viewers (a six-year-high for the special event program).
“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,” Paul Telegdy, NBC president of alternative and late night programming, said. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”
If you, like me, were anticipating the return of Fey and Poehler, we can release a sigh of relief since our dreams have been answered! From their hilarious Golden Globes opening to acting like “sore losers” when ‘Girls’ leading lady Lena Dunham beat them in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy category, it’s no secret why these two would be asked to return.
