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.
