He was also a top-notch standup back in the day and a fantastic prose writer, which are [...]

Tina Fey Says There's "No Way" She's Hosting the Oscars

After Seth MacFarlane's Oscar-hosting received a chilly reception in the wake of everybody loving Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's performances as Golden Globes hosts last month, you'd expect the Oscar people to have been on the phone with Fey and Poehler's agents the second that monologue ended Sunday night. But the odds of a Fey/Poehler Oscars are looking pretty slim after an interview Tina Fey just gave to The Huffington Post:

Interviewer: Is it a possibility that you and Amy Poehler could wind up hosting the Oscars next year? Fey: … I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman — the [...]

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's Golden Globes Score Best Ratings in 5 Years, Up 28% from Last Year

Ratings are in for last night's Golden Globes with extremely well-received hosts Tina Fey in Amy Poehler. Amongst audiences 18-49, the show earned a 6.4 rating, up 28% from last year's 5.0 under host Ricky Gervais. With overall viewers, the ceremony was up 17% with 19.7 million watching. It was also the second highest-rated Golden Globes since the 2004 one, which is pretty impressive. Given the impressive ratings and how much fun Amy Poehler and Tina Fey seemed to have doing it, the Globes people are crazy if they're not meeting with the duo right now about coming back next year. And there's still time to just let [...]

These Tina Fey/Amy Poehler Golden Globes Promos Are Delightful

Here's your 2013 Golden Globes hosts, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, recording a series of funny promos for the show, which is happening Sunday, January 13th, and is sure to be the peak of awards shows that can never possibly be reached again (unless they're allowed to host together next year).

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Are Just Pawns in the Golden Globes' Game

"[Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are] really a smart and wonderful choice. It's a coup against the academy, who hates us."

- Hollywood Foreign Press Association member H.J. Park to The LA Times in one of two pieces today about how enlisting Fey and Poehler as Golden Globes hosts is just the latest conquest in a long-running war between the HFPA's Golden Globes and the Academy Awards, who pulled off a less-heroic feat by recruiting Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane to host. It's like a real war, only the winner just gets more TV ratings.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Have Been Asked to Host the Golden Globes Again

Will Tina Fey and Amy Poehler come back to host the 2014 Golden Globes? Deadline reports that NBC and the award show's producer Dick Clark Productions have invited them to return as hosts for next year's ceremony, which received critical acclaim and the Globes' best ratings in five years. NBC isn't having active conversations with Fey and Poehler yet, but they have received an open invitation. Last year, they were announced as hosts in mid-October, and this year, the awards show is expected to choose a host by November.

It's hard to guess whether Fey and Poehler will return. While they seemed to have a [...]

Talking to Mike Scully About Writing for Poehler and Fey at the Golden Globes, 'The Simpsons,' and 'Parks and Rec'

Mike Scully is living proof that if you just spend your childhood watching TV and have no college degree or any other marketable skills, you can always fall back on show business.

[Full disclosure: the preceding line was Scully’s invention. Hey, sometimes you take an assist from a professional comedy writer, especially one as accomplished as he is.]

Scully is a television writer and producer perhaps best known as the showrunner for The Simpsons Seasons 9 through 12. Since then he’s had stints producing and writing for shows including Everybody Loves Raymond, Parks and Recreation, and The New Normal, where he’s currently a co-executive producer.

Scully’s won 6 Emmys, [...]

Here's the 11 Minutes of the 180-Minute Golden Globes Broadcast Worth Watching

The Golden Globes were held last night, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing every bit as amazing as you'd expect them to and raising the bar sky high for next month's Oscars host Seth MacFarlane. Even with these two incredibly funny ladies hosting, the bulk of the awards show broadcast was still made up of boring awards show stuff with funny stuff from Poehler and Fey sprinkled throughout. The two highlights of the night were Fey and Poehler's opening monologue (above) and a bit by their SNL cohorts Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig (below), presenting an award. The combined 11 minutes from these two segments make up [...]

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to Co-Host the Golden Globes (and Hopefully All Awards Shows Ever)

Every year, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler make for some of the funniest moments at the Emmys and the Golden Globes, and now, the Golden Globes are finally letting them host.

Amy Poehler Has a Classy Response to Taylor Swift Saying She's Going to Hell

"Aw, I feel bad if [Taylor Swift] was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff."

- Amy Poehler to The Hollywood Reporter in response to Taylor Swift saying she and Tina Fey are going to hell for making a joke about her at the Golden Globes.

Paul Rudd Explains His Golden Globes Telemprompter Mishap

One of the more memorable moments form Sunday's Golden Globe Awards was Paul Rudd and Salma Hayek standing onstage speechless after their teleprompter  unexpectedly crapped out on them while they were presenting the award for Best TV Drama. They had just presented another TV award prior to that, and as Rudd explains to Vulture, he didn't know he was still on TV at first:

"We didn't know, I didn't know they were doing two [categories] — we never had rehearsal. And they didn't tell us, so we were just standing there, and I honestly thought they went to commercial! [Laughs.] I mean, there was nothing on [the teleprompter]! And [...]

Your Guide to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Hosting the Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are co-hosting The Golden Globes this Sunday, airing on NBC at 8PM ET/5 PM PT, and it should go down in history as the first intentionally funny awards show ever. Talking about the show to Entertainment Weekly, Fey joked that the ceremony will be "the sloppiest, best ever. The defining moment for a generation. But that generation is people who are currently in their nineties. And they've seen some stuff, so that’s actually saying more." Poehler added, "Tina and I have done a lot of research and we found out that our demo is 90-year-olds and babies. So we’re going to try to [...]

The Golden Globe Nominations Ignore All Your Favorite Comedies Once Again

The 2013 Golden Globe nominations came in this morning, and, as usual, they snubbed a bunch of TV's best comedies. Community and Happy Endings didn't receive a single nomination (and never have, from the Globes), whereas Parks and Recreation and Louie only got one nomination each for acting and not for Best TV Comedy. To put things into perspective, the Matt LeBlanc Showtime series Episodes got a Best TV Comedy nomination, an honor that was not bestowed upon 30 Rock, Community, Happy Endings, Parks and Recreation, and Louie. And most important of all, Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman has never been nominated for a Golden Globe (or an [...]
