If the Oscars are the grown ups table, then the Golden Globes have usually been the looser, more gravy-stained kids table of the awards season and in 2013, two very funny women and friends will combine forces to hand out a bunch of awards.

Tina Fey of NBC's "30 Rock" and Amy Poehler of NBC's "Parks & Recreation" -- who both previously featured together and broke through on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" -- will be hosting the 70th annual Golden Globes on....you guessed it, NBC. The show is coming off last year's lackluster and disappointingly edgeless return by Ricky Gervais, and while they won't likely go for the jugular like he did his first time out, Fey and Poehler do have the potential to bring something memorable to the proceedings. And as anyone who has seen their stint as Weekend Update hosts on SNL knows, they've got great chemistry and timing together. So the potential for this to be great is very high, but the counter-argument? "Baby Mama."

However, we have faith, particularly since the Hollywood Foreign Press Association tend to be a bit more freewheeling than the starched shirts of the Academy. We'll see if Fey and Poehler can pull it off on January 13, 2013. [THR]
