Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: Golden Globes hosts!

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes for the last two years in a row, and despite some people being a little put off by his jokes, I thought he absolutely killed it up there. So when they were preparing to announce the new host for the Golden Globes, I figured they had to step it up somehow. And then they announced Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would be hosting, I died from the extravaganza. THIS IS THE BEST NEWS TO EVER HAPPEN EVER. Via HuffPo

The decision to hire Fey and Poehler to host the Globes isn’t all that surprising: The pair have a longstanding relationship with NBC (from SNL to 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation), the network that airs the Golden Globes. As recently seen with Jimmy Kimmel and Neil Patrick Harris — as, respectively, emcees of the Emmys on ABC and the Tony Awards on CBS — having a connection with the ceremony’s home network is a plus for potential awards show hosts. (That’s part of the reason why Seth MacFarlane was such an out-of-left-field choice to for the 85th annual Academy Awards, which air on ABC; he’s closely connected to Fox with Family Guy and NBC/Universal with Ted.)

The only way this could get any better?

Tina: Wow, what a night it’s been! Community won so many awards that NBC renewed it for two more seasons and a movie!
Amy: And now, to close off the night, a naked John Hamm covered in dark chocolate!
John: I’m sticky …
Amy: But delicious!
