BlogHer Original Post

The Emmys had us clamouring for it via twitter, and it appears that the Hollywood Foreign Press has answered our prayers. Former SNL "Weekend Update" co-anchors Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will squeeze all four of their feet in to Ricky Gervais' notorious shoes to host the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards this coming January.

Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting --

Long-time friends Fey and Poehler are only the second hosting team on the awards show, which went without a host until Ricky Gervais was tapped for the job the last three years. “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, Alternative and Late Night Programming.

...Both Poehler and Fey have had memorable appearances at awards shows, most recently Poehler’s acceptance-speech gag with lead comedy actress winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus at last month's Emmys.

Well, I'm pleased as punch. How about you?
