Amy Poehler To Earn As Much as She's Paid for Nearly a Full Season of 'Parks and Rec' To Host the Golden Globes

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | October 22, 2013 | Comments ()


RadarOnline has discovered that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will receive $4 million each for each time that they host the Golden Globes (they’ve been selected to co-host the ceremony for the next two years). This is fantastic, not just because Fey and Poehler are the best thing to ever happen to The Golden Globes, but because they are getting sick money to do it.

From Radar:

Tina and Amy decided to ask for the craziest package ever given to awards hosts,” says a source who says the funny duo started negotiating the deal back in March.

“They are each being paid more than any Oscar host in history with the exception of Billy Crystal.”

Specifically, the numbers are: Billy has gotten almost $5 million to host the 2012 Oscars while the “standard first timer pay for the likes of Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, and Seth MacFarlane is closer to $2 million.”

The source adds: “Tina and Amy will each make $4 million on the deal but also they are getting a huge perks package that includes use of the NBC/Comcast private planes as they prep for the awards and full freight on their entourages, who will all be backstage to support [them] during the live broadcasts.

To put that in perspective, Amy Poehler makes $200,000 per episode of Parks and Recreation, so it would take 20 episodes of her sitcom to make the same paycheck she makes hosting one two-hour event. Likewise, Tina Fey — who made $350,000 per episode of 30 Rock — will make as much hosting the event as she made starring in half a season of her sitcom.

Four million dollars buy a whole lot of waffles, and they deserve every cent.

    That's insane. I don't understand this at all. I suppose they're funny to some degree. Not 4 millions worth though. Crazy. what is comedy these days. 30 rock isn't even funny for the most part. I don't get it. Could either one of theses women hold it down on there own? I don't know. Lot's of people love these two but I just don't get it. Tim and Eric awesome show great job put more comedy genius in one 15 minute episode then either one of these ladies careers. What do I know. The kids these days...

  • Good for them. I'd spank that piggy bank until it squealed too, given the opportunity.

  • I'm happy to report that Ms Poehler has just about enough money to be able to have me as a kept man...I wouldn't suggest that is her only option (I'd be there in a whisper), but I'd suggest it might be her best option. Just saying...

  • John W

    Billy Crystal got paid $5 million? Wow how desperate was the Academy?

  • Parsnip

    Two of the funniest and smartest on telly at the moment. I'm so used to hearing about the guys getting the big bucks...nice to hear for a change the women getting it.

  • Sean

    Amy probably needs the money now that Parks and Rec is canceled.

  • Uriah_Creep

    It hasn't been cancelled, but it's going on hiatus, and things don't look particularly good for the show.

  • rocboltin rocbolt

    Its not on hiatus, NBC just moved two episodes to mid November. There were only originally going to air 4 episodes the remainder of 2013 and that is still the case. Adam Scott had to chime in to quell the uprising

  • Parsnip

    Really? I did not know that. Tis a sad day indeed.

  • e jerry powell

    Since they're both "in house" hires, perhaps this is a way to make up for paying them both so little for their shows after the obscene amounts Jerry Seinfeld got paid back in the day.

  • dizzylucy

    While that makes me really happy for Amy and Tina, it also makes me realize that someone paid James Franco $2 million to stand there half asleep at the Oscars a few years ago.

  • Classic

    Well he did have the $ to go by blow which is what I always imagined he was doing prior to the broadcast. Ah the memories of that shitshow. I do not miss it.

  • anon

    Why aren't liberals crying out over this? 8 million dollars that could be used to solve actual problems? Oh right, these two are "cool", they're one of us amirite

  • Don't be that guy.

  • I'LL TAKE THE BAIT!!! i don't find amy poehler in the least bit funny and wish they'd give the money to, uh, homeless people.

    however, i love tina fey and have no problem with her making the big dollars.

  • Legally Insignificant

    I wish there was a way to set the internet to forward all jackassery to the offender's mother. "Look what your little boy/girl wrote on the internet." Forever shamed.

  • dizzylucy

    That would solve so many problems. Youtube's comments would become a ghost town.

  • e jerry powell

    That would be bad?

  • Ian Fay

    Worth every penny.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    I look forward to Roosh V's* enlightened thoughts on this.

    *Roosh V being this douche:

  • Mrs. Julien

    "Deserves got nothin' to do with it."

  • John G.

    Hey, there you are. Where's the comment of the week lately?

  • Mrs. Julien

    EE is on an indefinite hiatus.

  • FrayedMachine

    Now THAT is how you do business. Work it, ladies. Get it good! They're worth every penny considering that they're _actually_ entertaining.
