Although the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said one should "never say never" to another Ricky Gervais-hosted Golden Globes, the HFPA's going in a different direction for 2013.
Instead of another year of laughably awkward moments as Gervais tears into Hollywood from the stage, the HFPA tapped the hilarious tag team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. (We love Gervais, but the idea of Fey and Poehler hosting anything has our undivided attention.)
The two comic actresses will host the 70th Golden Globes ceremony on January 13, making us hopeful for a night filled with smart and barbed humor (and maybe even a drinking game to rival the "Bridesmaids" version at the SAG Awards).
Fey and Poehler are prior "Saturday Night Live" co-horts and current comedy stars on NBC. The president of alternative and late-night programming for the network, Paul Telegdy, has called the Fey/Poehler match-up "a major coup."
“Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing," Telegdy said in a statement to THR, "from their many years together on 'SNL' to their successful co-starring roles in 'Baby Mama.'”
Think they'll be able to bring it to the hosting job in January?
I think that's a great idea.. They work very well together and they are both funny.
Best news of the day...Ok..it's been a slow day but this is still AWESOME news. These ladies are great!
Guess Snooki and the cast of "Gigolos" must have had prior commitments.
We think they are Super.
Afunny team of ladies.
teena is evil and we hate her–put her on the news
they are not going to jail but we have to let everyone know for safety measures
make sure the town knows...
teena is an awful example to woman...i could never been seen with a sleaze like her...
The chance of you being seen with ANY WOMAN ON EARTH.....are very slim.
amy and tina are incredible, this is going to be the best! incredible women!
we have to take care of the other part....everyone has to be informed to change their information...they live this way everyday
we do not.
they are outta control...we need to put a stop to it.
we have to let the businesses know to change their information-no name–just tell them to change their info
Yet another reason not to watch.
with teena and her fat whaled computer...or donna...you decide folks...we'll all be with donna
is because of her not because of me–
I want Joe Biden to host. He cracks me up.
i love my girlfriends gold globes...yum
GOLDEN GLOBES – On the Red Carpet or on the silver Screen – Those GOLDEN GLOBES of California-Tan-Starlets are a Celebration of Modern Technology
mel gibson...he's made mistakes but boy i'd eat him up in a heartbeat-i'd like go uphill with him anytime
Well there go the ratings – DOWNHILL !! Why would they do something stupid like that. Did you see AP at the Emmys?? Totally stupid and unfunny. Anybody else shaking their heads at this insane change. I'm not saying Gervais should have been chosen, but at least give it a worthwhile shot to have someone else – Mel Gibson anyone ??
Mel Gibson? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA you think Mel would make a good host for the Globes?
And you call other people stupid?
watch teena on a dumb computer all night or here oh no so loud causing an earthquake tremor in the auditorium
gee what do i do...
lets see...performing a classic disco song in front of 300 people or watching tv and talking to a screen all night...
i'll take disco night and here the roar of fantastic voice–dis ain't no karoke sukka.
she'll ask you to forward on your text a hacking scam number like she did last night...i'm in
wanna trash her at rehearsal break...i'll let you know what time to glue in
Great! We get to see Sarah Palin and Hilary again...for the 200th time!
is usually is a dirty mess...this is a good look for her
she is what we initially said.....she's a butch
tina fey has ever looked..she is usually a slob
said the same thing...there is "nothing" there...and he had a girlfriends in spain as a young lad and said to me before my meetings - there is "nothing" there
to everyone–when does one realize that....she's not you(m)...can you imagine having this on a daily basis?
Tina Fey's bo obie is about to fall out of her dress. She looks like a t ard.
And you sound like one.
she should put 'em both together and make one good one! ( o )( o )
he really needed to give Jennifer Miano a chance... she's naive and a little innocent at times but a better stability for him.
I want Tina Fey, she's hot!
does she step out with a friend, does she take a class, does she hear a lecture somewhere while he's working...
what is she doing?
you can check every hour on the hour and their she is....what is she doing with herself ? does anyone know?
she is no comparison to midge at all.
Don't get the purpose of this move; nether of these women are funny......
You are obviously in the minority, as they have comedic careers, while you have.............?????
Tiny Fey is a gorgeous! Call me!!!!!!!
Amy, you're cute too!
Two excellent reasons not to watch.
The Lame sisters
Two reasons TO watch – two intelligent, funny, talented-writing women. I'm there!
Tina Fey will do her Sarah Palin impersonation. And they will be able to use a zuchinni for the Trig Palin impersonation. But what about Bristol Palin? Maybe a cow...
Ricky IS the Golden Globes. These two are just ok at best.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are very funny and even better together. Fey's "Palin," and Poehler's "Hillary" are some of the best impressions done in the last decade.
I never watch the Golden Globes, but I will try to watch just for these two.
I guess that's one show I can cross off my list. I don't find either of these women to be funny at all. Tina Fey is tolerable, at the most. Amy Poehler is just awful.
Sucks that you don't have a sense of humor, happytan.
Show some respect, Neckbeard.
Never watched the Globes, but this year I'll be tempted.
I might actually watch this year. I absolutely love these women.
Anna Farris & Will Ferrel would be funnier, but these two lovely ladies should knock it out of the park.
Why did they choose these two?
Because they are hysterically funny and have amazing chemistry together.

Good! Gervais is OK for a one time host, but not every year. That "I'm so naughty" toothy grin of his is beyond played out.
