A couple of weeks after the Oscars landed MacFarlane, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has managed to top the Academy’s unconventional pick, booking two majorly funny stars for their show’s 2013 ceremony: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
HFPA’s president, Dr. Aida Takla-O’Reilly (along with dick clark productions and NBC) announced Monday that the actresses (and former Saturday Night Live costars) will co-host coverage of this year’s Golden Globes, airing Sunday, January 13.
“The unparalleled comedic timing of Tina and Amy will surely have viewers wanting to tune-in to see them in action,” Takla-O’Reilly shared. “The HFPA is thrilled to have the magnetic duo be a part of the show’s 70th anniversary!”
“Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” Paul Telegdy, President of NBC Entertainment’s Alternative and Late Night Programming, added. “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.”(Us Weekly)
