It’s a golden comedy pair that is sure to bring the laughs to the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The 30 Rock star Tina Fey and her former Saturday Night Live castmate and star of Parks And Recreation Amy Poehler will team up as the evening’s hosts for the Globes in January 13th.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the The Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions made the announcement on Monday, passing the hosting reins over to the comedy sweethearts after the past two consecutive runs by comedian Ricky Gervais.

“Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late-night programming for NBC Entertainment, in a statement. “Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-starring roles in Baby Mama.”

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs on January 13, 2013 on NBC. What do you think of the host pairing for this year’s awards?!
