Forget the nominations for a moment and let's talk about the real reason you're going to watch the Golden Globes come January: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The adored comic pair are going to tag-team the hosting gig next year, and we now have a taste of what's to come thanks to the first Globes promo clip.
Like a true teaser, we only get half-a-minute of Fey and Poehler's bit, which involves them saying everything in a rat-a-tat "classic Hollywood" accent - an amusing skit for about 10 seconds before, yes, it gets old.
If anything, the clip reminds those who haven't watched Fey and Poehler together - either in old "Saturday Night Live" episodes or in their 2008 movie, "Baby Mama" - just how naturally and well-timed their performances are.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is clearly the most excited to have them on board, as the teaser exclaims "we found the perfect hosts for the most unpredictable party of the year."
We'll see if the hype delivers when the 70th annual Golden Globes airs live on NBC January 13.
