Ricky Gervais Addresses New 'Golden Globes' Hosts Tina Fey And Amy Poehler
After three consecutive years of shocking and offending A-listers at the annual Golden Globe Awards, British comedian Ricky Gervais will officially not be returning to host the live NBC presentation in 2013, as it was recently announced that NBC veterans and consummate comedic duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will do the honors.
Fey and Poehler and both alumni of Saturday Night Live, where they famously hosted the "Weekend Update" segment together for two SNL seasons. Both went on afterward to helm their own primetime NBC shows — 30 Rock and Parks & Rectreation, respectively. The dynamic female duo have also appeared in two films together: 2004's Mean Girls with Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams, and 2008's Baby Mama with Greg Kinnear, Dax Shepard, Sigourney Weaver and a slew of SNL vets like Will Forte and Fred Armisen.
Gervais wishes Fey and Poehler the best in their efforts to helm the Awards show. “Good luck to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes," Gervais said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. "After failing three years in a row to make E! Channel’s Best Dressed list, I decided to hand over the reins. Let me know if you run out of Scientology gags."
Now maybe Robert Downey, Jr., Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, and Bruce Willis can all rest easy, having one less thing to fear when they arrive at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hills Hilton on January 13, 2013.
