Tina Fey, Amy Poehler to host next Golden Globes
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Comedy duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host next year’s Golden Globe awards in Beverly
Hills, bringing perhaps a gentler touch to a ceremony helmed for the past three years by acerbic Briton Rick Gervais.
Organisers the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and NBC said on Monday that Fey and Poehler would bring their
tried and tested chemistry to the Jan 13, 2013 gala dinner for Hollywood’s leading film and TV stars.
Fey, 42, creator and star of 30 Rock, and Parks and Recreation actress Poehler, 41, have worked together for years - first on satirical sketch show Saturday Night Live and later on 2008 comedy movie Baby Mama.
“Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together,” NBC alternative programming president Paul Telegdy said in a statement.
