Because of their well-liked turn hosting the Golden Globes last year, the NBC and Dick Clark Productions has signed on Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to host the ceremony for the next two years.
The comedy duo was able to provide a ratings boost with their last hosting duties, and news began to spread several weeks ago that they had been asked to return. Their hosting duties had the best ratings the show has gained in six years, and the majority of the boost came from people in the 18-49 demographic.
“Their return ensures that the Golden Globes will once again be the biggest, best and most entertaining awards celebration of the year,” said Theo Kingma, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
While I wasn’t as bonkers for their hosting job as many were, the two gals did a respectable job in their first job and I’m sure they’ll do fine in their next two. But still, would it be too much to ask Ricky Gervais to have a cameo?
