Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to host the 70th edition of the Golden Globes. The two former Saturday Night Live anchors will make use of their charm and sense of humor for the event taking place on January 13.
On Monday night, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that next year’s hosts of the Golden Globe Awards will be comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The duo hosted Saturday Night Live from 2004 to 2006. On January 30, Fey and Poehler will present the 70th edition of the ceremony.
In the past three years, the Golden Globe Awards was hosted by Ricky Gervais, the creator of the sitcom “The Office”. And before him, the Golden Globes did not have a host at all.
HFPA president Aida Takla-O’Reilly stated that “the unparalleled comedic timing of Tina and Amy will surely have viewers wanting to tune in to see them in action”.
At the beginning of September, Poehler announced her separation from husband Will Arnett, after nine years of marriage. The 40-year-old actress and producer said the separation was amicable.
Meanwhile, Tina Fey, 42, is still happily married to composer Jeff Richmond.
