Amy Poehler: Golden Globe Hosting Duties Coming To An End, But Other Big Projects In The Works

Amy Poehler will see her time as co-host of the Golden Globe Awards coming to an end after Sunday, but the comedian won’t be taking it easy in the future.

For the last two years, Poehler and fellow comedian Tina Fey have hosted the annual awards, but their three-year contract is up and Sunday’s award show will be their final one.

Fey told E! News the following on Friday.

“We’ve had so much fun doing it, but it’s its own special moment in time that will end… Listen, it’s our last time! What are they going to do, fire us?! Who cares!”

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been friends for more than 20 years, and in 2004 combined to make the first all-female host team on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update.

But even with her Golden Globes gig coming to an end, Amy Poehler still has plenty of other exciting things going on. Earlier this week she was named Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ Woman of the Year Award. Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the oldest theatrical organization in the United States.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals president Jason Hellerstein said the following in a statement.

“We are extremely excited to announce Amy Poehler as our 2015 Woman of the Year. She is an accomplished performer, incredible comedian, and an inspiration to everyone in the Hasty Pudding… We look forward to welcoming Ms. Poehler and celebrating and honoring her achievements in a truly unique and memorable way.”

Poehler still has plenty of other projects in the works. In addition to the final season of Parks and Recreation, she is starring in Universal’s upcoming comedy Sisters, with her fellow Saturday Night Live alums Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph.

Amy Poehler will also be moving behind the camera, serving as executive producer for Comedy Central’s Broad City. Those who want to catch Amy Poehler and Tina Fey in their final Golden Globes hosting duties can find streaming video links here.
