As if we needed further proof that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the best at everything and should always be talking on our TVs always always. The upcoming hosts of the 70th Annual Golden Globe awards took the time out of their day being witty whilst wearing gorgeous gowns to discuss their impending job, photobombing Harrison Ford, hating everyone, and who they think will win the award for “Best Actress in a mini-musical or major documentary.” (It’s a shocker!)

Back in 2007, late great Vanity Fair writer Christopher Hitchens irked oodles of women, and men, in a meandering article, asking, “Why are women, who have the whole male world at their mercy, not funny?” A slew of others have followed suit over the years.

Tell that to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the newly minted co-hosts of next year’s Golden Globe Awards.

There have been previous female co-hosts such as Raquel Welch, in 1985, who co-hosted with Michael York, and Joan Collins and Wayne Rogers in 1983, but no solo female hosts either.
So why should this, two women hosting, and specifically Fey and Poehler, be celebrated, cheered, yelled from rooftops, if one’s energetic enough? READ FULL STORY »
Ricky Gervais has made friends and enemies these past three years hosting the Golden Globe Awards, with his penchant for feisty, frisky barbs and tongue-in-cheek British wit, but who else could fill the comedian’s shoes as host of the most fun awards show of the season?
“As of now, there are currently no plans for Ricky to host,” a rep from Gervais’ agent William Morris tells EW.com. Following Tuesday’s announcement from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that next year’s 70th annual Globes, airing live on NBC, will take place on Jan. 13, 2013, the field is open for an array of would-be hosts. Here are a few of our suggestions:

She may have gone to Yale, but this week Claire Danes will be at Harvard, as the Hasty Pudding Theatricals crown her Woman of the Year. On January 26 she will lead a parade through Cambridge, followed by the presentation of the Pudding Pot at the annual roast. The Man of the Year has not yet been announced. Last year, Julianne Moore and Jay Leno were Woman and Man of the Year, respectively. Other pairings of past years include Anne Hathaway and Justin Timberlake, Scarlett Johanssen and Christopher Walken, and Renee Zellweger and James Franco.
The Hasty Pudding Theatricals were founded in 1795 and have been doling out the title of Woman of the Year since 1951, when Gertrude Lawrence was honored. For a look back on previous men and women who’ve been deemed worthy of the society’s highest honor, check out the history of Hasty Pudding.
Danes recently won the best actress in a TV series (Drama) Golden Globe for her role in the Showtime series Homeland.
