Someone at the 2013 Golden Globes knows exactly how to get me to tune in to watch the next awards show. How can you possibly resist a combo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts of the 2013 Golden Globes? Nothing against Ricky Gervais, who was entertaining enough when he wasn’t being completely inappropriate, but Tina Fey and Any Poehler hosting the 2013 Golden Globes is just a match made in heaven.

Call it a Saturday Night Live reunion on a massive scale. Let’s hope Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will bring some of their best SNL humor to the 2013 Golden Globes stage.

“The unparalleled comedic timing of Tina and Amy will surely have viewers wanting to tune-in to see them in action,” said Takla-O’Reilly, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, in a statement. “The HFPA is thrilled to have the magnetic duo be a part of the show’s 70th anniversary!”

Tina Fey is currently starring in the final season of 30 Rock and Amy Poehler leads the cast of Parks and Recreation. In addition to their long stint on Saturday Night Live together, the two also worked together on the feature films Baby Mama and Mean Girls.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will replace Ricky Gervais, who hosted the Golden Globes for the past three years. Although he was praised for his hosting skills, Gervais also received harsh criticism for his over-the-top commentary and nasty remarks about various celebrities.
