Who Should Host the 2016 Golden Globe Awards? Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Left Pretty Big Shoes to Fill
It was a night of epic wins, stunning fashions, and heartfelt speeches, however, there was one very dark and depressing thought looming over the 2015 Golden Globe Awards: the knowledge that this would be Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's third and final year of hosting. Ugh, I still don't even want to think about it, you guys. I mean, these reigning Queens of Comedy completely changed the hosting game with their on-point, humorous jabs that managed to remaining smart and edgy, but never overly insulting. They were basically the perfect team, which makes it all the more tragic to see them go. But now that they have, there's just one big question that remains: who should replace Fey and Poehler as hosts at the 2016 Golden Globes?
Well, perhaps "replaced" is the wrong word for it. After all, one can't just simply go out and replicate the awesomeness of two such dynamic ladies. (If you could, I would've done so long ago.) Fey and Poehler are, by and large, irreplaceable. But since they are no longer a viable option, it's time to start considering who else out there is worthy enough to try and carrying on the hosting torch. And I just so happen to have a few candidates in mind!
Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin
These 9 to 5 costars reminded us all why we fell in love with them in the first place when they took the stage to announce the winner for Best Actor in a TV Comedy. "It's nice at last that men are getting the recognition they deserve for being good at comedy," Fonda quipped before announcing the results. And just like that, it felt as if we were seeing Fey and Poehler 30 years in the future. I'd be happy to see these two rip apart negative Hollywood stereotypes at next year's Globes. Or any day of the week, for that matter. More please!
Chris Pratt & Anna Faris
These two are quickly becoming one of my top celebrities marriages. They're just so adorable together. And given what we've seen from their previous projects, they also know how to be downright hilarious, and I, for one, would be intrigued to see what kind of content they'd come up with. Plus, now that Faris has a People's Choice hosting gig under her belt, she might be ready to take that next step.
Kristen Wiig & Bill Hader
It's no surprise that these two SNL alums are incredible together — a fact that was recently reaffirmed during their phenomenal performances in Skeleton Twins. But Wiig and Hader pretty much stole the show Sunday night when they presented the award for Best Screenplay — but not before attempting to imitate iconic movie lines from films like E.T. ("Kids, I really…I gotta get back to my planet.") and Titanic ("Hey, guys. Guys, guys, guys, guys! Relax.") Suffice to say, we need more of this in our lives and having them host next year's Globes is one guaranteed way we could go about doing so.
Emma Thompson & Anyone
Remember last year when a barefooted Thompson graced the stage with a martini in one hand and her Louboutins in another and said: "I just want you to know, this red, it's my blood," referring to the bottom of her shoes? Well, that convinced me right then and there that she would make for a great host of any award show. Between her sarcasm and incredible wit, there's no telling what this legendary actress would do. I know it's probably a pipe dream, but just think it over, Thompson, will ya?
Benedict Cumberbatch & Jennifer Aniston
Sherlock Holmes and Rachel Green on stage together? Clearly someone has been reading my dream journal. Seriously, I cannot envision a more perfect pairing. Let's make this happen, people. (Pretty please?)
