Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are teaming up for the Golden Globes.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Dick Clark Productions and NBC announced Monday that the pair of 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation stars have signed on to host the 70th annual Golden Globes ceremony after British comedian Ricky Gervais' three-year reign as the show's acerbic emcee.
The funny lady duo previously starred together in the films Mean Girls and Baby Mama and on Saturday Night Live.
Poehler's Parks and Recreation is currently in its fifth season on NBC, while Fey's 30 Rock is airing its seventh and final season on the network.
This year's Golden Globes ceremony was watched by 16.8 million TV viewers, finishing within 1 percent of the 17 million viewers who tuned in to the 2011 broadcast, according to the Nielsen Co.
The Globes are usually handed out about a week before the Academy Award nominations are announced, but that won't be the case next year. The motion-picture academy has moved up the Oscar nominations announcement to January 10 - three days before the Globes are set to air January 13.
The earlier date for the nomination unveiling for the 85th annual Academy Awards, which will be hosted February 24 by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, could steal attention away from the Globes.
