Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Hosting Golden Globes, Internet Explodes With Joy

Want to get everyone on the Internet to stop talking about that dude who free-fell from space because of energy drinks for like five minutes? Share the news that your fantasy best friends Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are tag-team hosting the 2013 Golden Globes

Both NBC and award show organizers praised the duo’s "natural comedic chemistry," with NBC’s Paul Telegdy calling it a "coup," although that’s a bit of a stretch considering they both star on pretty popular primetime comedies on said network. Still, it’s a long way until the show, which takes place at the Beverly Hilton on January 13th, but if there’s one thing in the entire universe that will actually get people to watch the Golden Globes, this might be it. The excitement surrounding the news is palpable, almost tangible, or at the very least expressible in a barrage of gifs all over your Tumblr dashboard. 

For a bit of a preview of what’s to come, here’s a clip of Poehler and Fey presenting together at the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards. Hilarity, alien noises, and a close-up of a very gleeful Steve Carell ensue. Also, this clip will serve as a reminder that Jeremy Piven somehow won three consecutive Emmys for yelling at Rex Lee on Entourage. Those were the days, huh?
