Paul Telegdy, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said, "NBC has long been the home to two of the funniest people on the planet — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — and we didn’t want to wait any longer to share the great news that they’ll be hosting the Globes once again."
Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the body that bestows the Globes, said, "There’s no denying that Tina and Amy’s comedic chemistry is infectious. We can’t wait to see the dynamic duo return to the Golden Globes stage."
