PASADENA, Calif. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will share host duties for the Golden Globes ceremony in 2021.
Poehler herself shared the announcement at a TV critics meeting Saturday, just a week after the ceremony aired with Ricky Gervais as host.
There are no two funnier people anywhere, said Poehler, who introduced herself with the name of an NBC publicist who was to have opened the networks daylong presentation about its programming.
A tongue-in-cheek Poehler said the network was glad the pair found time in their busy schedules to take on the Globes. They have hosted three times before.
At last Sundays ceremony, Gervais snarky jokes in his fifth turn as host received mixed reviews and reactions from the celebrity audience. Poehler and Fey earned a warmer reception for their comedic approach.
Gervais repeatedly said during the ceremony that it was the last time he intended to emcee. A total of 18.3 million viewers tuned in, a small drop over the 18.6 million who watched the 2019 ceremony co-hosed by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg.
Theres no denying that Tina and Amys comedic chemistry is infectious, said Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which bestows the TV and movie awards. We cant wait to see the dynamic duo return to the Golden Globes stage.
Poehler joked that she couldnt wait to present the best film award to the video, Puppy Dog Bouncing in the Box Like This.

Fey and Poehler can be pretty funny. I really like the Mayhem/Fey Allstate commercials. I’ve seen them quite a few times and they’re still funny.
That’s a badge of honor, in my book!
Now, they have two reliable leftists who will be sure to toe the line...
Fey was not even cracking a smile; she did the same in the vids of other years he's hosted.
They know enough to stay on script.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.........
Amy P. can be funny, but I like her about 35% less since reading how hostile she can be toward any MAGA voters.
She’s made a couple of snarky remarks that are rather mean.
Would never have shown that rudeness with Obama.
Wow, I might actually watch the golden globules next year. Nah, just kidding folks.
I dislike Fey. She takes special pride that her constant ridicule of Sarah did terrific damage to public perception of Palin. She is a rat tool.
some blue language, and the flamer Anderson Cooper is on the dais.
this is a great move as far i’m concerned, because bringing back Gervais in 2021 would have skyrocketed the Golden Globes ratings, but this way the death-spiraling ratings can continue uninterrupted, sending the Golden Globes towards their well-deserved deposit into the dust-bin of history ...
How typical of Hollywood...another do-over...
TINA FEY. I’m sure the TV audience will tune in to see her. /s
Golden Globes - going from bad to worse.
Replacing male pottymouth with two unfunny women pottymouths.
Gervais made his mark and won’t be forgotten.
The other two may be funny, but they will toe the line. Boring.
Tina Fey is like, the 90s, isn’t she? I mean, like, do a few updates.
“Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will share host duties for the Golden Globes ceremony in 2021”
Translation: Ricky didn’t bash Trump enough so let’s get someone who will.
Two of the worst comedians ever on SNL. I heard a rumor when Fey was doing her lame Sarah Palin impersonation, the left gave her the Mark Twain prize for humor as a way to boost Feys legitimacy being the patronizing assholes the left is, and Carol Burnett did not appreciate that at all. Mark Twain prize is the top prize for comedians that people from Richard Pryor to George Carlin got and Burnett who was doing comedy since Fey was a kid was ignored. I think the next year they finally gave it to Burnett, but it’s just one more example of how the left commandeers awards and uses them to boost their agenda. They don’t give a damn about them, Nobel peach prize probably being the most notoriously abused.
