All hail Amy and Tina! Can they host everything from now on, please?

Forget the dresses, the stars of this year’s Golden Globes were most definitely the super-duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. It’s not often that women get to host big award shows, let alone two of them, but they pulled it off marvelously.

The on-stage banter between presenting duos can often be forced, seem over-rehearsed, or just be downright claw-your-eyes-out awkward, (i.e. every Eurovision, ever) but theirs was natural, relaxed and most of all, tremendous fun to watch. It’s obvious that they have great craic together in real life and just watching them makes you want to be in their gang.

Their jokes were spot on, as they poked fun at the room filled with shiny celebrities, but they still managed to be good-natured, rather than mean-spirited *cough*RickyGervais*cough* all while completely being themselves.

Not only did they do a brilliant job of hosting the awards, they also looked flipping fantastic while doing it. I especially liked how Amy arrived on the red carpet in a saucy tuxedo as Tina’s date.

I already loved these two, seeing as they’re each behind two of my favorite comedy shows, 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, and seeing them nail the Golden Globes gig just further proved what amazing and hilarious ladies they are. I pretty much want them to host everything from now on. I’d even watch Winning Streak if it meant they were presenting it.

So are you a fan of Amy and/or Tina? What did you think of their presenting style? And what else would you like to see them host?

    I love Tina Fey, I think shes great.

  • Grá says:

    Ah I love these guys too! Did anyone see Baby Mama? Tina Fey wants a baby and an agency finds her fertile Amy Poehler to be her surrogate :D Hilarious!

  • Gracie says:

    I love both of them. They were fantastic as usual. They should do the Oscars next year!

  • Atkin says:

    Can’t stand 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation and I don’t think Saturday Night Live has ever been funny BUT Tina Fey is absolutely hilarious. Her book, Bossypants is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I loved their hosting of the Golden Globes, especially when Tina was sitting on George Clooneys’ lap. I’m not too familiar with Amy Poehler though.

    I can’t wait for Seth McFarlane at the Oscars!

  • sweetie says:

    Sandals Amy is wearing with the tux are fab!

  • jennifer says:

    Those pair are fabulous! I want them to host more award shows together. Their style was deadly too, very edgy.

  • littlesis says:

    Totally agree, they seemed natural together, which is something hosts rarely manage.

  • Grá – I remember Baby Mama got terrible reviews when it came out, which sort of put me off it at the time but I’ve been meaning to give it a watch for the last while. It’s good to hear positive reviews! I love Amy and Tina so much.

    Atkin – Bossypants is on my ‘to read’ list, I really must get around to it!

    Gracie – They should! I kinda wish the Oscars organisers would boot Seth McFarlane off the job and just give it to them instead.

  • Didn’t see all of it (much watch the clip there now if I can manage to get poxy sound working on this yoke) but the bits I did see were great, mainly because they were really natural and warm and not forced at all. I actually don’t watch 30 Rock and haven’t seen these two in much at all, but I thought they did well here. They really stole the show.
