Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Prepare to Host the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes are fast-approaching in the wake of Thursday's Oscar nominations, but maybe the most exciting thing about the event is not the promise of teary acceptance speeches, but rather the two women who will act as hosts: the two comedy grand dames of our time, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The two actresses, who both rose to fame on Saturday Night Live, are the stars of two of television's most popular sitcomes - 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, for the uninitiated - and promise to be two of the most memorable awards show hosts in recent memory.

They've already started strong: the drinking game they proposed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that ran earlier this week surely beats anything anyone else has come up with:

THR: OK, so can you come up with a couple of rules for a Globes drinking game?

Fey: Any time an actress cries in a speech, drink. Any time you see a person actively not listening to someone onstage, drink.

Poehler: Any time someone says, “I didn’t prepare anything!”

Fey: Any time anyone thanks Harvey Weinstein, eat a meatball sub.

THR: How about any time they show Judi Dench?

Fey: Yeah. You take off an article of clothing.

Poehler: Any time Maggie Smith wins.

Looks like we'll all be eating lots of meatball subs.

The Golden Globes will be broadcast on NBC at 8PM EST tomorrow. Check back here for more updates!
