Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler 'Hire' Stephen Sondheim to Write Golden Globes Show


According to The New York Times 'Carpetbagger' blog, host-comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler said jokingly (we think) in an interview that they will be singing the whole Golden Globes awards show.

"The whole show is going to be sung front to back, and Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine have written it," Fey said. Poehler added, "We just called up Sondheim and we were like, 'Guess what?' And he is like, 'What?' We are like, 'Start writing.' He just said, 'Jackpot!'"

Poehler and Fey will co-host the 70th GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS, airing live on NBC this Sunday, January 13th from the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Nominations for THE 70TH GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS were announced on Thursday, December 13.

Produced by Dick Clark productions in association with the HFPA, The Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 160 countries worldwide and are one of the few awards ceremonies to include both motion picture and television achievements. The 2012 "Golden Globe Awards" averaged 16.9 million viewers, which was the biggest audience for ABC, CBS, NBC or FOX in the time period, excluding sports, since the prior year's Academy Awards.
