Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be back for the next two glorious years to helm the Golden Globes, and that sound you hear is the joyful squealing of fangirls and fanboys the world over.
According to Deadline, the pair have closed a deal for two more hosting gigs for the movie awards show.
Their wild success at the 2013 awards made them a very hot couple of emcees and left fans wanting them as permanent hosts. But if you missed the stellar event that was the first Fey-Poehler Globes, then here’s why this news has everybody so stoked to see the ladies onstage once more.
They Know What They’re Doing
Not every celeb can weather the transition to a live awards show, where the script is more of a suggestion than a rulebook and anything — anything! — can happen. But as veterans of “SNL,” Fey and Poehler know how to work an audience and roll with the punches (and the equipment malfunctions and the nip slips and whatever else the format wants to throw at ’em.)
They’re Not Ricky Gervais
Not that Ricky Gervais isn’t terrific, but after he beat up the audience and stole their lunch money at his last Golden Globes hosting gig, it’s really just better this way.
And Maybe, Just Maybe, Hollywood Will Finally Start To Believe In The Power Of Lady Comedy
Because when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are killing it on the Golden Globes stage, even the most hard-hearted person cannot deny that it’s real, and it’s spectacular.
Except Tommy Lee Jones, of course, but he hates everything.
