Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will once again host the Golden Globes this year. In a new promo for the telecast, the duo claim it could be the same old, run-of-the-mill Fey-Poehler pairing like we see year in and year out.
“This is our third time. How are we going to keep it fresh?” Poehler asks in the promo. “Uh, we’re not,” Fey replies.
It’s highly doubtful anyone would mind even if it’s exactly the same… these two are hilarious just standing there.
And it’s no wonder NBC asked them back for a third year considering they received rave reviews and solid ratings the past two years as hosts of the awards’ show.
However, Poehler and Fey seem to enjoy minimizing their star power.
“We don’t think we would be able to get in unless we were hosting,” Poehler says. “Not anymore,” Fey adds.

Both are Golden Globe recipients. Poehler took home an award for her work as Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation and Fey took home two trophies for 30 Rock.
As for this year, it sounds like Poehler has a few goals lined up for this year’s telecast.
“So, I’m going to try and get Julia Louis-Dreyfus to smile, for once,” Poehler says in the promo.
“Good luck,” Fey retorts.

If Poehler is to be believed, this will be the last time the two host the show together.
“It’s the law of diminishing returns, which is why this is our last time,” Poehler said during a recent appearance on Today. “Unless you want to be a perennial host, there’s nowhere to go but down!”
The 72nd Annual Golden Globes air at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT Jan. 11 on NBC.
