Poehler, Fey to host 2021 Golden Globes

Orlando Sentinel - - PEOPLE & ARTS -

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will share host du­ties for the Golden Globes cer­e­mony in 2021.

Poehler shared the an­nounce­ment at a TV crit­ics meet­ing Satur­day, just a week af­ter the cer­e­mony aired with Ricky Ger­vais as host.

“There are no two fun­nier peo­ple any­where,” said Poehler, who in­tro­duced her­self with the name of an NBC pub­li­cist who was to have opened the net­work’s day­long pre­sen­ta­tion about its pro­gram­ming.

A tongue-in-cheek Poehler said the net­work was glad the pair found time in their busy sched­ules to take on the Globes. They have hosted three times be­fore.

At last Sun­day’s cer­e­mony, Ger­vais’ snarky jokes in his fifth turn as host re­ceived mixed re­views and re­ac­tions from the celebrity au­di­ence. Poehler and Fey earned a warmer re­cep­tion for their comedic ap­proach.

“There’s no deny­ing that Tina and Amy’s comedic chem­istry is in­fec­tious,” said Lorenzo So­ria, pres­i­dent of the Hol­ly­wood For­eign Press As­so­ci­a­tion, which be­stows the TV and movie awards. “We can’t wait to see the dy­namic duo re­turn to the Golden Globes stage.”
