On Saturday morning, Amy Poehler made an exciting announcement at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour and announced the big Tina and Amy will be back hosting the Golden Globes in 2021! We’re so excited about this! You can read more about it below.
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are headed back to the Golden Globes stage.
The news came via Poehler’s surprise appearance at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour Saturday. An exact date in 2021 has not been decided, but the telecast will mark the comedy pair’s fourth time hosting the awards show. Poehler and Fey were universally praised for their on-stage rapport during their previous outings in 2013, ‘14 and ‘15.
News of their involvement will inevitably be seen as a coup for producer Dick Clark Productions, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and longtime partner NBC, particularly at a time when major award shows have struggled to line up hosts. ABC announced earlier this week that next month’s Oscars will go hostless for its second year in a row.
The announcement comes just a week after NBC aired the annual award show with Ricky Gervais on the dais. The British comic, who’d hosted four times before, joked that this time would be his last, giving him the freedom to unload on the Hollywood system and its benefactors. At one point during his recent stint, he suggested the night’s winners come up, “accept your little award, thank you agent and God and fuck off.” Viewership for the night’s ceremony was down slightly, with the star-studded show hitting an eight-year low.
Fey and Poehler both have long-standing relationships with NBC, beginning with their star-making turns on Saturday Night Live. More recently, Fey created and starred in 30 Rock and produced Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for Netflix. She, with Robert Carlock, will exec producer NBC’s upcoming comedy starring Ted Danson as L.A.’s mayor. Poehler, who starred in Parks and Recreation for NBC, is an exec producer and host of NBC’s Making It and a hands-on producer on Netflix’s Russian Doll and Fox’s upcoming animated comedy Duncanville. Poehler also announced that Making It has been picked up for a third season.Source: The Hollywood Reporter
Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond were interviewed by the Chicago Sun-Times to talk about the “Mean Girls” musical coming to Chicago during the Holidays! Read the full interview below.
Opening night of the much-anticipated Chicago run of “Mean Girls” promises to be so fetch as the critically acclaimed production — set in the Chicago suburbs — comes home on Christmas Day, which also happens to be a Wednesday (so, wear pink).
“In some ways I think it was booked that way as a little gift to me. I really love that we are in Chicago over the holidays,” says Tina Fey, the actress and nine-time Emmy Award-winning writer behind the 2004 “Mean Girls” comedic movie hit, who adapted the screenplay into the theatrical book. “I feel like the show in many ways belongs to Chicago because of where it’s set and because I feel such a close association to the city with the five years I lived there and the great comedy community that exists.”
The ‘Mean Girls‘ National Tour is heading to Chicago this December, so Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond talked to the Chicago Tribune about how meeting in Chicago led them into making the musical together. You can read the full interview below and check out a new photoshoot they did for the publication in the gallery!
Above the door of the Second City training center resides wisdom from a noted alumna named Tina Fey. “There are no mistakes,” the stenciled quotation reads, “only possibilities.”
For Fey, whose formidable career exploded at the Chicago comedy theater in the mid-1990s, that famously fearless approach to show business has led her from Second City to “Saturday Night Live!” writer and then star actor, to the movie “Mean Girls” and a hit NBC TV show called “30 Rock” to another hit NBC TV show called “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” to many more movies and cameos and animation voiceovers and American Express ads and Allstate commercials and a best-selling autobiography called “Bossypants” and the Broadway musical version of “Mean Girls,” and well, far too many creative projects for any one human to keep track.
The flood is, of course, ongoing and includes a new fall 2020 project for NBC that, on this very afternoon in New York, is being devised in the offices that Fey and her husband, Jeff Richmond, call their creative home.
