After Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Host the Golden Globes Together, Here's 5 Projects They Should Remake

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | October 16, 2012 | Comments ()


It was announced late yesterday that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would co-host the 70th Annual Golden Globe awards this January, which is basically the best news to happen to an awards show in, like, ever. I mean: Can you think of a better duo to host an awards show? As presenters and winners, those two are usually the highlights of television awards shows, so giving them free reign at an awards show that serves a lot of alcohol?

Best. Idea. Ever. Better yet, they're the opposite of Ricky Gervais, who has hosted the last two years: They're fun. They're enthusiastic. They're endearing, And they can make fun of other celebrities without making them feel bad or the audience in the theater or at home uncomfortable.

It's also a perfect pairing for another reason: "30 Rock" will have ended its run by the time the "Golden Globes" come around, and given the dismal ratings of "Parks and Recreation," it's not very likely that "P&R" will be around next year. So, with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey possibly without shows, they should work exclusively together. For the rest of their lives. They should be the next Walter Matheu and Jack Lemmon.

These are the projects that can occupy them for the next 30 years.

1. A "Laverne & Shirley" television series that will run for eight years.

2. The Odd Couple remake

3. Stir Crazy (the only question would be, who would be Richard Pryor and who would be Gene Wilder?)

4. Grumpy Old Women (obviously, when they're in their 70s)

5. A remake of White Men Can't Jump Called White Women Can't Dance

  • "they’re the opposite of Ricky Gervais ... they can make fun of other celebrities without making them feel bad or the audience in the theater or at home uncomfortable"

    You're speaking on behalf of your fellow Americans aren't you? Because the rest of us were wetting our pants...

  • "White girl dancing" is still dancing. It's ridiculous that people don't think they can shake it.

  • Salad_Is_Murder

    Why not just combine the two shows? Parks & Rock: a new dramedy where Sally Parks (played by Tina Fey), a clown college dropout and psychic teams up Patrica Rock (Poehler) a crime scene investigator slash detective slash criminal profiler to find the secrets of the human condition and the lost gold of Mount Montebruja.

  • They are the two coolest women in the world. I want them to adopt me.

  • BierceAmbrose

    Can't dance? That white girl dancing up there works for me.

    - Being hopelessly pale, my standards for "dancing" are way too low?

    - Move appreciation overshadowed by appreciating the people doing the moving?

    - Anything with women in it is going to look good? (It's been a slow ... while.)

    - I'm imagining the dancing together, with each other, then...

    - Other / some combination?

    The are a tremendous duo. Watch the Sarah Palin sketches again. Tina Fey got all the attention, but Amy Poehler's exasperated, brittle Hillary Clinton made the bits work beyond broad caricature.

    Gotta love how the Globes get the best host ever and the Oscars get the worst.

    Well, based on the gifs, my suburban remake of Soul Train-Beige Train- just found it's hostesses.

  • dizzylucy

    They must work together on something that allows dancing. They MUST!

    I may be foolishly optimistic, but I think with the Office and 30 Rock ending, Parks & Rec might survive another year. It's never gotten big ratings, but it does get a lot of love from critics and occasionally award nominations, and it's not like NBC is tearing it up with a ton of other comedies.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Wait, what? Tina Fey and I have the same moves so that means... OH GOD DAMMIT!

  • John W

    The Odd Couple sounds interesting but I think they already covered that territory in Baby Mama.

    Stir Crazy sounds interesting too.

    What about Midnight Run? Amy in the Deniro role and Fey in the Grodin role. With Kristen Wiig in the Dennis Farina role and Maya Rudolph in the John Ashton role AND Melissa McCarthy in the Joe Pantoliano role. Gillian Anderson in the Yaphet Kotto role.

  • Jennings

    Please make this happen. Whose alter do I sacrifice on to make this happen?

  • Mrs. Julien

    I was coming here to say Midnight Run and drop the mike and strut around like I think I'm so awesome and John W totally beat me to it.

    Do you know why you have an ulcer? Because you have two forms of expression. Silence and rage.

  • e jerry powell

    You'd better find a place for Jane Curtin, or there will be hell to pay.

  • John W

    Check that. Nick Offerman in the Yaphet Kotto role.

  • John W

    Gillian Jacobs as Moron #1 and Alison Brie as Moron #2.

  • e jerry powell

    But what about their children?

    Ah! The Manic Pixie Dream Team!

    Oh you poor misguided troll/commenter/whatever. Go back to TvTropes and study before you come back here with that weak shit. You might get chuckles out of your friends who get everything filtered through facebook but you need to step up your game, son.

    You be like reading a Rowles article or something.

    Thank you for proving my point.

  • BendinIntheWind

    These GIFs all look like my reaction to reading this news.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Sometimes when I go out boozing on Fridays I like to take two parts FeyDance and one part PoehlerDance and mix them together vigorously before adding the result to a long glass half-full of RockwellDance.
    It's a glorious drink but a pretty fucking strong one too; I usually end up doing the zeke's-face-is-stuck-to-a-curb-dance.

  • e jerry powell

    Worse things have happened, I'm sure.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Occasionally when someone spikes it with a SandlerDance I end up cleaning out the inside of the pub's toilets with my tongue, spitting the accumulated bolus onto the floor and then gazing lovingly at my creation.

  • e jerry powell

    That's pretty bad, alright. You might want to go to a meeting for that.

  • Groundloop

    And up-voted to maintain balance in the universe.

    Sorry, I have to downvote that just for grossness. It's creative, but gross.
