Why You Should Be Excited About Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler Hosting the Golden Globes

As we mentioned yesterday, it’s Golden Globes week, which means that we get to spend the next few days talking about the past, present and future of the awards show.

While we were hoping to put together our picks of the best hosts of the past 25 years for you today, finding a list of folks is more daunting than you’d imagine.

So instead, we’re giving you a few reasons why the Hollywood Foreign Press should be applauded for their decision to bring back last year’s hosts, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to hold it down this year, too—because we really like laughing while watching an award show.

4. They’re Gorgeous

OK, so we know that most guys fall head-over-heels for girls like Kate Upton and Emily Ratajkowski, but let’s face it—Poehler and Fey are hot in their own right.

Combining humor with good looks and style, these two hosts have an appeal about them that will make women and men want to tune-in.

3. The Trends

Last year wasn’t just a big year in TV and film, but also with a ton of Internet trends that got mega-popular.

Knowing that, you bette believe that Fey and Poehler will be playing them up more than other hosts might.

With seemingly a sixth sense to define what’s trending and funny, the hosts will undoubtedly be taking shots at people like Miley Cyrus for her VMA performance, as well as poking fun at the newly-recognized word of “seflie,” for everyone to see their talent.

2. The Spontaneity

Whether it was sitting in an A-lister’s lap—as Poehler did with George Clooney last year—or pretending (we think?) to be drunk following the duos loss in a nominated category, these two girls won’t stop short of making sure the audience is talking about their stunts.

And when the two busted out into character for the fake film Dog President, well, every guy should have been convinced that they needed to find a woman like these two.

1. The Opening

Last year’s opening monologue was one of the funniest we’ve ever seen at the Globes, full of laying into celebs in a tasteless, witty way, along with the humor you’d expect from two former improv actors.

They were able to get the crowd on their side at the beginning, showing that the show would be far different than the years that Ricky Gervais held down the hosting spot.
