One of Amy Poehler's best lines at this past year's Golden Globe Awards was this little gem:
"We have no intention of being edgy or offensive tonight because as Ricky Gervais found out the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times."
Well, apparently Poehler and Tina Fey annoyed someone at the Hollywood Foreign Press, because both performers will be returning not only to host the 2014 Awards, but the 2015 show as well. Maybe it was that line about Tarantino being the star of all of Tina Fey's sexual nightmares...
Kidding aside, the Hollywood Foreign Press' President Theo Kingma seems genuinely delighted to have the BFFs back for two more turns as masters of ceremony.
"We are thrilled Amy and Tina have decided to return as hosts of the Golden Globe Awards for the next two years," said Kingma. "Their return ensures that the Golden Globes will once again be the biggest, best and most entertaining awards celebration of the year."
I'm pretty excited, too. I think Gervais' years hosting are still my favorite, but Fey and Poehler were a lot of fun. Awards shows are never particularly exciting to watch, but the Globes have done a good job of hiring hosts who aren't afraid to be a little edgy. The Oscars should probably take note.
Will the return of Poehler and Fey get you to tune into the Globes again? Leave us a comment and let us know.
