Still, there is a greater curiosity afoot: it seems large sects of the population have taken genuine interest in the Golden Globes.
Upon investigation, we found there’s indeed good reason for the perturbational excitement: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Ever since the dynamic duo announced they’d be hosting this year’s awards, we ourselves can’t help but rejoice.
We’re in fact so excited, we think it only appropriate to thank them. Let us take a moment to celebrate these ladies and appreciate all they’ve given us.
We love Amy even more as Leslie Knope. Re-watching bits of this episode has gotten me through more than one long night this semester. If you’ve never watched Parks and Rec before, there’s no time like the present; the new season (which premiered Sept. 20) is genius.
Next, we remember Bossypants; evidence that Tina’s wit is equal only to her intelligence. Part autobiography, part humor writing, part self-help, it’s a little erratic. But somehow she pulls it off. This is why we love her.
More importantly, we love Tina and Amy for the candid, real-life things they do; for the real people they are. Exhibit A: Tina’s not-so-subtle nod to Todd Akin. Exhibit B: Amy’s heartwarming web video series for girls of any age, “Ask Amy”, through which she gives down-to-earth advice on body image, friends, and stress.
Amy’s website honors individuals who are changing the word “by being themselves”. In turn, we honor you, Amy.
...And the hilarity of this photobomb.
The Golden Globes are scheduled for January 13, 8 pm EST. Thanks to Tina and Amy, we couldn’t be more excited.
