I’d totally forgotten that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were returning to the Golden Globes this year, after being absolutely fucking brilliant at it before – but now it’s been confirmed that they won’t be doing it together.
Yes, These Cursèd Times have inevitably affected awards season quite substantially, and it’s been reported by Variety that the two will perform their hosting duties from thousands of miles apart.
When the ceremony takes place on February 28, Fey will be in the Rainbow Room in Manhattan, New York; while Poehler will be at the show’s usual home of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
That’s… going to be strange! But hopefully the two of them can find a way to make a virtue of the weird circumstances.
The Globes nominations are due today; with the Oscars nudged back from February to April 25, and the BAFTAs pushed from February 14 to April 11.
Now, while we wait for the ‘nods’ and ‘noms’, let’s enjoy these two in all their previous glory.
