The Golden Globes honor the finest movies, TV shows, and actors of the year, but let’s be real: for the past two years, it’s really been a celebration of the crazy, beautiful friendship between the hostesses with the mostesses, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Amy and Tina have been friends for over two decades, way before either of them became household names on “Saturday Night Live,” which is what makes their friendship the best thing ever. And in a perfect world, Amy and Tina would be our BFFs.
Amy and Tina are set to host the Golden Globes for the third — and sadly, final — time in 2015, so it’s time to revel in their brilliance one last time and pray to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson from "Broad City" cover for them next year. Here are 13 reasons Amy and Tiny are your dream besties:
