On Tuesday morning, the Golden Globes announced (via Twitter):
“Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to return as hosts of the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, and the 72nd in 2015.”
There were high hopes that the dynamic duo would return to host the awards show, especially after they were so great when they took the job in 2013. The two Saturday Night Live alums had done the gig back in January as a one time thing, but over the summer, they were wooed and asked to return. And these lovely ladies wouldn’t want to disappoint you, me, and the rest of the world, right? So Amy and Tina said yes!
They seemed to hint at a return to hosting when they did a skit at last month’s Emmy Awards. At least that got people talking — and hoping — that the two would host again. They really were a breath of fresh air, especially in contrast to Ricky Gervais’ controversial hosting style from the previous year.
Are you excited about seeing Amy and Tina return to the hosting gig? Does this change the odds that you will be tuning in?
