The yearly tradition of watching award shows, and then cringing through the broadcasts as talented people are forced to try and appeal to every person in the world with watered down jokes and lame puns, will at least get a reprieve at the Golden Globes. This past January, BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were a big hit at the Golden Globes, and so of course, they were courted to return. And that wooing went smashingly as the pair are gonna be regulars, at least for the immediate future.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced that Fey and Poehler will be back to host the Golden Globes two more times. “It’s wonderful news,” HFPA president Theo Kingma said in a statement. “They have always been our first choice as hosts and we’re delighted they are back for the next two years.”
So, the only pressure they’ll face is making sure things continue to be lively, fun and irreverent, which shouldn’t be a problem for these two. They’re a solid pair with good chemistry, and they know how to work a room. The 71st Annual Golden Globes Awards airs on January 12, 2014. [ComingSoon]
