Oct. 16 - Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been tapped to host the Golden Globes, taking the reins from British comedian Ricky Gervais. Lindsay Claiborn reports.
Comedy duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host next year's Golden Globe awards, a job held for 3 years by British comedian Ricky Gervais. Fey, the creator and star of "30 Rock," and "Parks and Recreation" actress Poehler, have worked together for years - first on satirical sketch show "Saturday Night Live" and later on 2008 comedy movie "Baby Mama." Fey has won seven Emmy awards for her TV work, including for her impersonation of 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Poehler worked for eight years on "Saturday Night Live," often playing politician Hillary Clinton. She also appeared alongside Fey in the 2004 comedy "Mean Girls." Gervais hosted the event, which hands out awards to the best films, actors and TV shows of the previous year, from 2010-2012, attracting plenty of publicity along with criticism for his acid one-liners about the assembled celebrities. He was the first person to host the Golden Globes ceremony since 1995. The Golden Globes will be held in Beverly Hills on January 13, 2013.
