Tina Fey and Amy Poehler To Host Next Two Golden Globes
Tuesday, October 15th, 2013 at 2:00 pm
As the Oscars continue to scramble to find something that resembles a rating stability, the Golden Globes have locked 2013 hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for two more Golden Globe shows. This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone seeing that the ceremony they hosted was a critical hit and a huge ratings boost – a 28 percent jump in the 18-49 demo if you are keeping track.
Below is a video of their opening monologue to remind you why these two are so hilarious and why NBC and Dick Clark Productions would want these two to host two more times.
During last year’s ceremony, Pohler ironically joked: “We want to assure you that we have no intention of being edgy or offensive tonight,” Poehler said during last year’s Globes, “because as Ricky [Gervais] learned the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times.”
Of the announcement, Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of Alternative and Late Night Programming, said:
“Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season. We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”
