Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be returning to host the Golden Globes in 2021.
Poehler announced the news while doing an impersonation of Chip Sullivan, executive vice president of communications at NBC Entertainment, at Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Saturday morning in Pasadena.
“There are no two funnier people anywhere,” Poehler-as-Chip Sullivan said.
The pair last hosted the awards show in 2015.
The date for the 2021 Golden Globes has not yet been announced. Ricky Gervais hosted the 2020 Golden Globes, which aired last Sunday.
“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,” Paul Telegdy, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, said.
Fey is a co-creator and executive producer, along with Robert Carlock, of an upcoming untitled comedy series starring Ted Danson as the mayor of Los Angeles. Holly Hunter will also star in the Universal Television-produced project.
