I am so ready for this

Talk about dream teams. The brilliant and hysterical Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the Golden Globes and it is going to be awesome.

From The Grindstone: 

First of all, we know these ladies make a great team and it is because of their chemistry. We know what happens when co-hosts aren’t in sync with eachother. The whole world had to suffer through the James Franco/Anne Hathaway Oscars hosting fiasco that was 2010. It seems to help when the hosts, oh I don’t know, actually like eachother (you could just feel James’s disdain for Anne literally coming through the screen.) Not only are Tina and Amy actually very good friends but we know they work well as a team from their many years as improv partners, co-hosts of Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live and of course, as Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton during Election 2008. 

"Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” says Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative and Late Night Programming at NBC Entertainment. “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.”

Yes, they have never hosted awards show but what can't these women do? I mean I am not even going to justify how funny Tina is. Her 40 Emmys should do that or just read one page of Bossypants and you will be convinced. As for Amy, Parks and Rec is one of the greatest shows on television and the fact that Amy manages to steal the show at the Emmy's every year, even while she is in the process of losing is amazing. Her speech switcheroo with Julia Louis Dreyfuss this year was almost as amazing as the beauty pageant Best Comedy Actress nominee for 2011. Classic. I do find Ricky Gervais funny but I'd rather see these ladies any day.  And I don't think they piss of George Clooney as much.
