Apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press realized that they didn’t have to bring back Ricky Gervais.
But seriously, this is great.
EW reports that Fey and Poehler will co-host the 70th Golden Globes that will air on January 13 on NBC.
The duo are not only long time friends, having been in Second City together, but they co-hosted SNL‘s Weekend Update together for 2 seasons, and have co-starred in movies together.
This is clearly a match made in heaven.
What is interesting is how this has turned out to be a big year for TV stars hosting award shows that aren’t necessarily about TV. First Seth MacFarlane is hosting the Oscars, and now this. Considering it’s not a stretch to say that some of what is on TV is rivaling anything on the big screen, perhaps this isn’t such a shocker.
This is quite possibly the best news I’ve had all week.
