This is gonna be good! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host the 70th and 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2014 and 2015, the organization announced on Tuesday, Oct. 15. "We are thrilled Amy and Tina have decided to return as hosts of the Golden Globe Awards for the next two years," Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Theo Kingma said in a statement. "Their return ensures that the Golden Globes will once again be the biggest, best and most entertaining awards celebration of the year."
"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," echoed Paul Telegdy, who is the President of Alternative and Late Night Programming for NBC Entertainment. "We're elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years."
"Tina and Amy have a truly unique chemistry, making them one of the most talented and captivating pairings of all-time," said Allen Shapiro, CEO of Dick Clark Productions. "We are thrilled to have them back in 2014 and 2015."
When the former Saturday Night Live stars first hosted the ceremony in January 2013, the telecast drew 19.7 million viewers, up 17% from the previous year. Fey, 43, and Poehler, 42, were a hit with critics and viewers alike (except maybe Taylor Swift, whose boy-crazy persona was made fun of during the show).
Poehler played coy about returning to the Golden Globes when she spoke to E! News at the Free Birds premiere on Sunday, Oct. 13, saying, "Nothing to report yet."
Fey, meanwhile, admitted they were in talks during the Primetime Emmy Awards in September. "NBC has invited us," the 30 Rock alum told E! News' Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. "We're going to talk about it tonight!"
The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards will be seen in more than 192 countries worldwide.
