Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host Golden Globes 2013

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host Golden Globes 2013 in the annual ceremony presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Move over, Ricky Gervais. Make way for Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.

Tina Fey set social media all abuzz when she hilariously videobombed Amy Poehler (video above) at the 2012 Golden Globes. Poehler swapped Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ acceptance speech for hers at last year’s Emmys (video below), and spoofed beauty pageants at the Emmys the year before (video way below). Here’s an idea: Maybe Fey and Poehler should host one of these things someday.

Fortunately, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association took note and named the Saturday Night Live alums and best friends hosts for this year’s Golden Globes, succeeding three-time host Ricky Gervais.

Fey won Golden Globes in 2008-09 for 30 Rock (now in its final season) and Poehler received her first (but likely not last) Globes nod for Parks and Recreation last year.

If you think being BFFs with them would be a blast, you’re not alone. Fey and Poehler auctioned off the chance to be best friends with them for the night at Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars autism benefit in October. Two people paid $36,000 each for the honor. Watching the Globes will be much, much cheaper.
