Former Saturday Night Live cast members turned NBC prime-time stars Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards Jan. 13 at the Beverly Hilton, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday.
"Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year's festivities is a major coup," said Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment's president of alternative and late night programming. "Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-starring roles in Baby Mama."
Comedian Ricky Gervais hosted the ceremony for the past three years, raising eyebrows with his quips at the 2011 ceremony, which took aim at Charlie Sheen, Robert Downey Jr., the Church of Scientology and Bruce Willis, whom Gervais introduced as "Ashton Kutcher's dad."
Fey spent nine seasons on Saturday Night Live and is in her seventh season starring on 30 Rock, which is ending its run this season. Poehler spent eight seasons on Saturday Night Live and stars on Parks And Recreation, which is in its fifth season.
The Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC.
