It's a truth universally acknowledged that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey totally killed it at the Globes this year. Remember the customised drinking game, the awesome opening skit and that wonderous GIF of Tina Fey schmoozing George Clooney? Well, NBC's execs certainly do and rumour has it that the history's greatest besties have been asked to return as hosts next year.
Good call, NBC! According to Deadline, “there are no active conversations between the network and the funny ladies,” but the besties“have received an informal invitation [not a formal offer] as NBC and DCP are looking to gauge their interest.”
Our fingers are firmly crossed for the magical moment when they say yes to the gig. But given the level of excitement, even gossips sites are careful to cushion everyone's expectation by saying how busy the actresses are. Fey has recently sold two pilots to two networks and Poehler has her plate full with the sixth (and last?) season of Parks and Rec.
Now, we've watched enough Orange is the New Black to know that hope is a dangerous thing, but nothing is going to stop us from staring at this GIF visualising that one day we'll hear these words again.
