Tina Fey, Amy Poehler to Host Golden Globes on NBC, 1/13
Liz Lemon and Leslie Knope are coming for Hollywood.
NBC announced this evening that former SNL pals and NBC darlings, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, have officially signed on to co-host the 70th AnnuAl Golden Globe Awards, set to air on Jan. 13. Comedian Ricky Gervais previously held the position for the last three years.
“Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s President, Alternative and Late Night Programming. “Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-starring roles in Baby Mama.”
After departing Saturday Night Live, both women went on to star in acclaimed shows for the network. Fey's 30 ROCK has won multiple Emmys, and is currently in its final season - Poehler has equally made PARKS AND RECREATION a hit with viewers.
