Golden Globe hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on Angelina Jolie, 'Avatar,' photo bombing -- VIDEO

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!)

Women have the last laugh! About time TWO gals such as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler host the Globes

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. Former Man Show host Adam Carolla sniped to the New York Post in June, “The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks.”

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

NBC, Dick Clark Productions and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association named the Saturday Night Live alums on Monday as hostesses of the 70th annual awards ceremony, set to air live Jan. 13, 2013 in Beverly Hills.

While Ricky Gervais spread his feisty, punchy, spitfire brand of Brit humor for the past three years as a popular, yet feared, host of the boozy show, next year’s telecast marks the very first time a duo of gals will host the Globes, the HFPA confirmed to EW. 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

If Ricky Gervais doesn't host the Golden Globes, who should?


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:

Claire Danes is Hasty Pudding's Woman of the Year

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.

Video Diary: Golden Globes night with Rico Rodriguez and his 'Modern Family'

For the second part of Rico Rodriguez’s Golden Globes video diary, the young actor (who plays Manny on Modern Family) offered EW an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at his prep routine on the big night as well as is the celebration he and his Modern Family castmates took part in after their show took home the award for best comedy. (If you missed it, click here for part 1.) READ FULL STORY

Golden Globes parties: Zachary Levi is Lord of the Dance (Floor), and the 'Modern Family' that wins together, parties together

The saying that Hollywood is one giant small town is never truer than at the Golden Globes. Unlike the after-parties for every other major awards show (which can sprawl out across Los Angeles), virtually every big party after the Globes takes place either inside or very near the Beverly Hilton hotel. It makes party hopping — and random celebrity run-ins — that much easier. (Of course, the convenient location also meant it was easy for women to swap heels for sandals, causing a few inadvertent gown-stepping-on mishaps.)

Even the space between the parties is lousy with odd and thrilling Hollywood moments, like Castle‘s Nathan Fillion chatting up New Girl‘s Max Greenfield (which only conjures images of Capt. Mal Reynolds slapping Schimdt), or Globe winner Idris Elba (Luther) sharing the briefest of greetings with nominee Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) as they pass each other in the hall. In fact, you could almost call the lobby of the Beverly Hilton the best unofficial party of the Globes. There was Jane Fonda, looking amazing in a long navy gown. On the way to the elevator? Penny Marshall in her signature shades, having a tete-a-tete with Kathy Griffin in a purple gown. And as the night drew to a close, you could catch Josh Radnor, Tiffani Thiessen, Connie Britton, Topher Grace, and James Marsden all within the same 10 square feet.

Needless to say, EW was everywhere at last night’s Golden Globes parties, and we’ve got all the on-the-scene scoopage on what it’s like when everyone in movies and everyone in television gets all gussied up and crams inside the same famous hotel for one fabulous Hollywood night.  READ FULL STORY

'Angelina, could you pass the salt?': Who would YOU want at your 2012 Golden Globes table?

While the Golden Globes are Hollywood’s most star-studded event, it’s actually the event planners who hold the real power in the room because they get to design the seating chart. Then again, it’s mostly a paint-by-numbers job since tradition dictates that casts are lumped together. What’s the fun in that? We’re turning it over to you, PopWatchers. If you could be lucky enough to attend the Globes tomorrow night, who would you like to have at your table?


Golden Globes fashion: Will Charlize Theron reclaim her crown?

There’s a lot to look forward to when it comes to Sunday’s Golden Globes: the awards, the gags, the acceptance speeches. But my attention is firmly focused on the red carpet fashion, particularly because this year marks the return of Charlize Theron and her chic wardrobe.

While, in the past few years, stars like Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Mila Kunis have owned the red carpet (and rightfully so), Charlize was the reigning fashionista back before they started topping best dressed lists left and right. And now, thanks to her performance in Young Adult, she’s back and hopefully, ready to reclaim her title.

If you need a refresher of just how fabulous Charlize has proven to be on the red carpet, check out her bold Vera Wang gown from the 2000 Oscars or her shimmering Gucci number from the 2004 awards (both pictured below): READ FULL STORY

Poll: Who should win big at the Golden Globes on Sunday?

The 69th annual Golden Globe Awards will air on Sunday, a (hopefully) boozy pre-Oscar self-congratulation-fest that will inevitably lead to the thinning of thousands of wallets, as poor Amurikans nationwide lose their office ballot pools. Which isn’t cool, because you’ll need that money when you lose your March Madness office ballot pool in a few weeks.

So before you cast your vote for Tilda Swinton over Viola Davis (It’s so her year!), scan your options and see what the other kids are picking below — because going with the mass consensus is always the safest bet! Be sure to defend any controversial choices, like, say, anything that isn’t Downton Abbey, in the comments below.  READ FULL STORY
