Boom! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Agree to Host the Golden Globes for the Next Two Years

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | October 15, 2013 | Comments ()


After bringing the Golden Globes its highest ratings in six years and hosting maybe the best Golden Globes performance ever, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have agreed to come back and host not just next year, but the year after, as well. And why not? Fey doesn’t currently have a show, while Poehler’s low-rated Parks and Recreation may be coming to an end soon. Maybe the hosting gig can be a prelude to their own sitcom, an updated version of Laverne and Shirley the two have been developing for years (in my mind, anyway).

According to THR, it does take the two out of the Oscar hosting conversation, although who gives a sh*t? There’s more booze at the Golden Globes, and therefore, more opportunities for Tina Fey nip slips, and brilliant Amy Poehler reaction shots.


Some suit at NBC had something nice to say about the development. Allow your eyes to glaze over.

“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,” said NBC president of alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Nothing like overexposure to not overexpose things. Before you all start bitching, consider that I'm right. After that comment has induced more bitching, consider the case of one Neil Patrick Harris, who is all but Billy Crystallized within the awards hosting realm. After the fire has calmed from everyone insisting that his tendency to host everything is still the cat's ass, Come on, now. Come on.

    Who am I kidding? It's just safer if I don't revisit this page once I've posted. Hey, I'm just 'living my truth'. I've got a right to sing the blues!

    Damn you, Hollywood, for making me watch the Golden Globes.

    Although, I wonder if they could ever top the James Cameron joke from last year...

  • Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

  • Ben

    I lost you at "Parks and Recreation might be comming to an end soon" BECAUSE FUCK YOU PARKS AND RECREATION WILL LIVE FOR EVER!

  • Ruthie O

    This news almost erases the trauma that is the Pedo Panda in the Ark music video. ALMOST.

  • bastich

    Between the Tina Fey nip-slip link and Amy Poehler's low-cut top in those gifs, this has been quite a time for "Golden Globes".


  • Tinkerville

    "...while Poehler’s low-rated Parks and Recreation may be coming to an end soon."

    NAH NAH NAH I can't hear you.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    I can't believe people seem to only remember that silly Taylor Swift sidegag they did, when I will remember that James Cameron slam dunk till the day I die.

  • Maguita NYC

    The looks on everyone's faces was priceless! Some tried really hard not to laugh... And did not succeed.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Jessica Chastain's reaction was the best.

  • stella

    Fine! Ill watch the Golden Globes and it will be awesome.

  • John W

    In related news I've committed to watching the Golden Globes for the next two years.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, Tina and Amy are fucking hilarious, but I think the most pertinent question right now that I, as a concerned internet user and fedora wearer, want to have answered is: are women funny?!!
    Based on these funny women I can only conclude the answer is: 'Yes. Obviously. What a stupid question.'
    But really, the question is, 'are women funny?'
    I guess we'll never know.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Are we alive?

    Yes we are, but are we really alive?

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Lies! Women are not funny, the Bible says so! Tina and Amy are robots constructed by the left-wing media as part of The Female Agenda to subvert God's laws. And as we know The Female Agenda is the only thing worse than The Gay Agenda!

  • bastich're kidding, aren't you? Dammit....

    /throws away plans to outsource Tina-bots and Amy-bots to take over crappy sitcoms

  • dizzylucy

    Sometimes when you have a crappy morning, nice news like this makes a big difference.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    They should have a reality show where they chat about random topics and drink wine called "Hang out with Tina and Amy".

  • e jerry powell

    "...and Jodie".


  • loo shag brolley

    To whom can I throw money at to make this happen?

  • bastich

    Aren't we due for an "Absolutely Fabulous" reboot? I think we have our stars....

  • e jerry powell

    FOX already shot one. It went byebye.

    Saffron was a pre-Shoshanna Zosia.

  • Nonononononononono. Seriously, I love Tina and Amy, but (tremulous sigh, hugging boxed DVDs to chest), AbFab must remain - like Jeremy's - a sterile oasis.

    That said...part of me (the perverse, masochistic part) could see Madonna as a new Eddie, once those steel-cable tendons give way and everything falls. Not because of any particular acting ability - and her accent would be a travesty - but I can TOTALLY see her as an aging fashion victim/fame whore roller-blading around the kitchen and making Lourdes insane.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    Too late, Cybill was the American version of AbFab.

  • LexieW

    Until this comment, I had never heard of Absolutely Fabulous. Thanks once again, all you people with good taste, for giving me something to add to my Netflix queue!

  • BWeaves

    As much as I LOVE Ab Fab, I don't think Fey and Pohler are right for the parts. Eddie is a bit too old, and too fat for the LaCroix she pours herself into, and Patsy is a tall former model who doesn't eat. Fey and Pohler are too petite and cute for both roles.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Oh my God! Yes!

  • alannaofdoom

    I volunteer my apartment if they need a location to film this.

  • zeke_the_pig

    I'd prefer it if that wasn't so much a show as a 'happening at zeke's house' kinda thing.

  • Maguita NYC

    I'd say more of a variety show than reality, I want them to entertain me rather than present themselves on the same level as a Kardashian. But please keep the booze, Amy is hilarious when slightly tipsy! And make this happen at least two nights a week.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Oh booze should really be involved in everything. But I want them to just sit and shoot the breeze and talk about current events and fashion and shit. Not follow them around or anything. Like a chat show...where they just chat...and drink...and we get to drink and watch them and pretend we're there with them.

  • PerpetualIntern

    I would watch that SO HARD.
