NBC has confirmed that the funny ladies have signed up to host the Golden Globes for the next two years.
“Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said NBC’s alternative programming president Paul Telegdy. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”
It comes as no surprise that the network wanted the pair and real life BFF’s back after the ceremony drew in an astounding 19.7 million viewers last year. And who wouldn’t want to see them make some digs at the celebrities? We still can’t get over their James Cameron and Taylor Swift jokes!
During the Emmys on Sept. 22, Tina confirmed to Ryan Seacrest that they were approached for the gig again, saying, “NBC has invited us, yes.”

Ryan also asked Amy about the situation. “We only talk about awards shows at other awards show,” the Parks and Recreation actress said. “The idea of getting to see Tina in any form is always nice right now. The only way we see each other is when we work.”
And though Neil Patrick Harris was the host of the Emmys this year, the dynamic duo — and former Saturday Night Live stars — still managed to steal the show during his opening monologue.
“We’ve got some advice for you,” they said to NPH. Tina quipped, “Take your pants off,” with Amy adding, “Twerk it! Work that twerk.” NPH said it would be “degrading” for him to do so. Amy’s response? “It would be degrading. But we would be degrateful.” The bit had everyone in the audience roaring with laughter.
