Move over, Ricky Gervais! Score one for the funny ladies as Tina and Amy are announced as the hosts of the upcoming 2013 Golden Globes! Read on for more details.
Liz Lemon and Leslie Knope to host the Golden Globes?! NBC announced on Monday, Oct. 15 that funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would be co-hosting the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, set to air January 13 on the Peacock network!
Replacing previous two-time host Ricky Gervais with Amy and Tina “to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said NBC’s president of alternative programming, Paul Telegdy. “Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-starring roles in Baby Mama.”
Aida Takla-O’Reilly, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association added, “The unparalleled comedic timing of Tina and Amy will surely have viewers wanting to tune-in to see them in action. The HFPA is thrilled to have the magnetic duo be a part of the show’s 70th anniversary!”
We love that NBC and the HFPA chose these two funny ladies with such chemistry to host together!
