A week after comedian Ricky Gervis revealed that he will not be hosting the Golden Globes, the chairman of NBC Entertainment, Paul Telegdy "couldn't wait any longer to share the great news", as he confirmed that the prestigious event will be hosted by none other than Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in 2021. “NBC has long been the home to two of the funniest people on the planet — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — and we didn’t want to wait any longer to share the great news that they’ll be hosting the Globes once again,” said Telegdy.
We are yet to judge all the outfits at '20 and the focus has already shifted to Golden Globes 2021. We cannot wait to see what the two are going to dish out at their unsuspecting audience.
Tina and Amy together hosted the Golden Globes from 2013 to 2015. In 2013, the award night received its highest rating ever in 6 years.
It has been a few years since the duo has drawn gasps and laughter for their witty writing from the Golden Globes audience, but their jokes continue to be memorable and funny today.
Do you remember when they went for Gorge Clooney?
“George Clooney married Amal Almuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case; was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria; and was selected for a three-person UN commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight … her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.
Or the time they explained what a cake was to their celebrity audience?
“Jennifer Aniston is here tonight, nominated for the film Cake. We should explain for the Hollywood people in the room: Cake is like a fluffy dessert that people eat on their birthdays ... And birthdays are thing people celebrate when they admit that they’ve aged”.
What about their Joaquin Phoenix joke after he openly criticized the academy awards?
“Joaquin Phoenix is nominated for Inherent Vice, but obviously he isn’t here tonight because he has said publicly that - quote - award shows are total and utter bull- Oh! Hey Joaquin!”
In short....Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting together is how we want to begin our next year!
