Rejoice! Tina Fey And Amy Poehler Will Host Golden Globes Together

Fey Poehler Golden Globes

Exciting news: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have won the hosting gig for the 70th Golden Globes Awards, where the SNL and Baby Mama/Mean Girls dynamic duo will almost certainly bring some pizzazz back to the proceedings following Ricky Gervais's neutered 2012 performance.

Fey and Poehler, longtime NBC stars, will host the network's telecast of the Golden Globe Awards on January 13, 2013 at 8p EST/5p PST. Expect awesomeness. And maybe a rap.

From EW:

“Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and late night. “Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-starring roles in Baby Mama.”

True, but let's not overestimate how good Baby Mama was. It was aight. Fey and Poehler's other best collaborations, on the other hand — from Mean Girls to SNL's Weekend Update — are another story. But kudos for working the phrase "baby mama" into awards season, ladies!

Are you as optimistic as I am for the Fey-Poehler Globes? Chime in below.
