Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host Golden Globe awards

MUMBAI: Bringing perhaps a gentler touch to a ceremony helmed for the past three years by Ricky Gervais, comedy duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host next year‘s Golden Globe awards in Beverly Hills.
Fey and Poehler would bring their tried and tested chemistry to the January 13, 2013 gala dinner for Hollywood‘s leading film and TV stars, the joint organisers Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and NBC said.
Fey, 42, creator and star of 30 Rock and Poehler, 41, have worked together for years, first on satirical sketch show Saturday Night Live and later on 2008 comedy film.
"Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together," NBC alternative programming president Paul Telegdy said in a statement.
The executive producers of Dick Clark productions which owns the rights to the Golden Globes, said they were excited ‘to have two of the most respected names in comedy‘ at the helm of the 70th Globes ceremony.
The Golden Globes is one of Hollywood‘s key award ceremonies ahead of the Oscars, which take place next year on 24 February will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane, creator of animated comedy Family Guy.
