    Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are to host the Golden Globes in 2021

    The 2020 ceremony may have only just been last week but it has already been announced that the comedic duo will co-host next year's offering


    Paul Telegdy, Chairman at NBC Entertainment, said: "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."

    Whilst Lorenzo Soria, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, added in the statement: "There’s no denying that Tina and Amy’s comedic chemistry is infectious. We can't wait to see the dynamic duo return to the Golden Globes stage."

    And Amy Thurlow, President of dick clark productions, shared: "Tina and Amy have provided Golden Globes viewers with some of the most memorable moments the show has ever seen. We’re thrilled to welcome them back in 2021."

    Amy and Tina will take over from Ricky Gervais, who was heavily criticised for his comments after fronting the ceremony for a fifth time last week.

    Pledging to "go out with a bang" as he mocked the star-studded audience, he said: "You'll be pleased to know this is the last time I'm hosting these awards, so I don't care anymore. I'm joking. I never did. I'm joking, I never did.

    "NBC clearly don't care either - fifth time. I mean, Kevin Hart was fired from the Oscars for some offensive tweets - hello? Lucky for me, the Hollywood Foreign Press can barely speak English and they've no idea what Twitter is, so I got offered this gig by fax. Let's go out with a bang, let's have a laugh at your expense. Remember, they're just jokes. We're all gonna die soon and there's no sequel, so remember that."

    A date has yet to be set for the 2021 ceremony.
