"Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year's festivities is a major coup," said Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative and Late Night Programming at NBC Entertainment.

"Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-starring roles in 'Baby Mama'," he added.

The funny ladies have already been a hit as awards show presenters the Poehler-orchestrated beauty pageant sendup was the hit of the 2011 Emmy Awards and both have Globes experience, with Fey as a winner for '30 Rock' and Poehler as a nominee for 'Parks and Recreation'. The awards, selected by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, air live from the Beverly Hilton on January 13.
