He further said that the channel is enthralled by learning that both of them will be hosting Golden Globes for another two consecutive years.
When asked the pair about hosting the Oscars, Fey put all speculations to rest by saying that it is a huge task to sing and dance and do the pre-taped segments, etc. Theo Kingma, the HFPA President also said that the return of the ladies on the Globes will ensure another fun-filled and the most entertaining award ceremonies of the next year.
