Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think we would be lucky enough to see Amy Poehler and Tina Fey host an awards show together. But luck be a lady tonight because the latest news coming down the pipelines from Heaven says they’re both in to host the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.
While I thoroughly enjoyed watching Ricky Gervais skewer Hollywood in recent years, I’m ready to see the ladies take over this show and make it their own. Every time they work together it’s comedy magic and I think we’re all hoping that this hosting gig will lead to the long-awaited full-length motion picture political parody that has them reprising their roles as Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin. It could be a buddy cop movie, where both politicians are forced to work together to solve an international crime.
Or it can follow the more standard Raising Helen recipe for comedy hijinks and have them inherit a child together. While at first their major ideological differences will make child rearing a challenge, they’ll soon realize they have to put aside their differences for the sake of their baby.
(Also, sidenote, why do dead movie parents constantly use their grieving children as pawns to drive their friends together/make them grow up? Yes, I’m talking about that horrid Katherine Heigl movie that I hate so much that I won’t even look up the name.)
Regardless of their movie decisions post-awards show, we can all agree that seeing them back together on stage again will make the Golden Globes the must-see event of 2013. Which, I know, is a bold statement considering it will only be 13 days into 2013 — but I’m saying it on the record because I’m that excited for this news.
