For the first time, two people will host the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards scheduled to be held on Jan. 13.

Golden Globe winner Tina Fey and Golden Globe nominee Amy Poehler have been tapped to host the award show.

"The unparalleled comedic timing of Tina and Amy will surely have viewers wanting to tune-in to see them in action," HFPA president Dr. Aida Takla-O'Reilly said. "The HFPA is thrilled to have the magnetic duo be a part of the show's 70th anniversary!"

After many decades with no host the Globes were hosted by Ricky Gervais in 2012, 2011 and 2010.

Fey is a "Saturday night Live" alum and her performances have earned her two Emmy Awards and Writers Guild Awards. Fey's most noted performance was in 2009 when she portrayed Sarah Palin on the 2008-09 season of "SNL."

Fey is also the executive producer, head writer and star of NBC's three-time Emmy Award-winning, comedy series "30 Rock." Fey's performance as 'Liz Lemon' has earned her an Emmy, two Golden Globes, three SAG Awards and a People's Choice Award. In 2009, "30 Rock" was nominated for a record 22 Emmy Awards, the most ever of any comedy series on television in a single season. "30 Rock" premiered on October 4 and as it begins its final and seventh season. In April 2011, Fey released her first book, entitled "Bossypants," which topped the New York Times best seller list where it still remains.

Fey and Poehler have starred together in the films "Mean Girls" and "Baby Mama" and on "Saturday Night Live."

Poehler currently produces and stars in the NBC comedy series "Parks and Recreation." Her role as Leslie Knope has earned her three Emmy nominations for acting and one for writing, and a Golden Globe nomination this past year. She also recently announced that she is executive producing a new pilot for Comedy Central called "Broad City.

"Parks and Recreation" is currently in its fifth season on NBC.

"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. "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.'"
