The “30 Rock” and “Parks and Recreation” stars — and real-life associates — have teamed up repeatedly since their days on “Saturday Night time Stay” after they sat on the “Weekend Replace” desk whereas Fey was a head author and Poehler was a solid member.

The 2 have additionally costarred in a variety of movies, together with “Child Mama” and “Sisters,” with smaller however memorable roles in Fey’s cult hit “Imply Ladies.” There’s additionally the Sarah Palin-Katie Couric spoof they nailed in 2013.

However their dynamism as irreverent awards-show hosts is their best collaboration.

They mixed criticism of the trade, present occasions and girls’s points with poignancy and wit.

Lest we overlook, their 2015 Globes stint got here on the heels of bombshell revelations about an viewers of “minimally gifted spoiled brats,” a reference Fey made to the Sony electronic mail hack.

Poehler joked with the Associated Press this week and mentioned that they’re “going to take full benefit of how enjoyable it’s to do award exhibits in your pc.”

As a result of if anybody can converse to this harrowing, pandemic-altered period and being remoted at dwelling whereas navigating Zoom faculty with children, it’s these two mothers.

In addition they haven’t shied away from teasing the eccentric Hollywood Overseas Press Assn. In 2013, Fey and Poehler famous that their predecessor, comic Ricky Gervais, and his acerbic, no-holds barred method didn’t do him any favors.

“We need to guarantee you that we’ve got no intention of being edgy or offensive tonight, as a result of as Ricky realized the laborious method, once you run afoul of the Hollywood Overseas Press, they make you host this present two extra occasions,” Poehler quipped in 2013.

In that very same monologue, they likened the voting physique to an HPV an infection for which “there isn’t any recognized remedy.”

They’ll most actually skewer the HFPA on Sunday within the wake The Instances’ current investigation into the eclectic group’s allegations of self-dealing, its dearth of Black members and different scandals.

It’s unclear to what extent the renewed criticisms will have an effect on the telecast. However a supply near the present informed The Instances on Thursday that the cohosts will finalize their monologue over the subsequent couple of days, however provided no particulars.

We count on current revelations in regards to the HFPA, pandemic habits, social distancing and a post-Trump panorama to take middle stage with Poehler and Fey on the helm.

Within the meantime, right here’s a take a look at some memorable Amy-and-Tina present moments from the previous.

Their 2013 Golden Globes monologue filled with shade

We nonetheless can’t recover from this monologue that made the ladies internet hosting legends (and that they by some means managed to prime in subsequent years). Fey declared that “‘The Starvation Video games’ was one of many largest movies of the 12 months.” However not with out self-deprecating humor: “And likewise what I name the six weeks it took me to get into this gown!” To that, Poehler replied, “Ang Lee’s been nominated for finest director for ‘The Lifetime of Pi,’ which is what I’m going to name the six weeks after I take this gown off.”

That very same monologue featured quips about Ben Affleck, Meryl Streep, James Cameron and James Franco. Listed below are some alternative quotes:

“Kathryn Bigelow’s nominated tonight,” Poehler mentioned. “I haven’t actually been following the controversy over ‘Zero Darkish Thirty,’ however on the subject of torture, I belief the woman who spent three years married to James Cameron.”

“Anne Hathaway, you gave a surprising efficiency in ‘Les Miserables,’” Fey quipped. “I’ve not seen somebody so completely alone and deserted like that because you have been on stage with James Franco on the Oscars.”

Heckling Neil Patrick Harris on the 2013 Emmys

Whereas we don’t condone sexual harassment, the duo made a cameo in Neil Patrick Harris’ monologue on the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards. Months after Fey and Poehler’s rave evaluations on the Globes, Harris emceed the TV awards and crowdsourced the viewers for recommendation. The comedians, feeding off one another as all the time, sat entrance row and readily wore shades and munched on popcorn whereas telling the host to take his pants off for viewers and twerk it — a extremely gif-ed second.

Trolling Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the 2014 Golden Globes

Oh, to be a part of Hollywood’s funny-women membership! Poehler as soon as reminded viewers that “solely on the Golden Globes do the gorgeous folks of movie rub shoulders with the rat-faced folks of tv.” “Seinfeld” and “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus bought a load of that criticism in 2014 when she was nominated for the movie “Sufficient Stated.” So she ditched the nice folks of tv within the Beverly Hilton ballroom to be seated within the part reserved for the extra glamorous film stars. And that didn’t sit effectively with the cohosts.

“Hello, Julia! You already know us from TV,” Poehler known as out from the stage. “She has actually modified,” Fey mentioned. “She’s gross,” added Poehler.

The recurring bit — and Dreyfus nonchalantly posing as an outdated Hollywood star who rebuffed Reese Witherspoon’s selfie try — have been a delight.

Fey and Poehler didn’t attend the Artistic Arts Emmy Awards throughout which they gained the first-ever shared Emmy for visitor actress in a comedy for his or her cohosting stint on “SNL.” Whereas presenting on the Primetime Emmy Awards per week later, the ladies — whom host Jimmy Kimmel mentioned would at some point be “buried collectively” — took the stage with trophies in hand, clinked them collectively and candidly defined why they missed the history-making ceremony.

“Sadly, I used to be unable to attend that occasion as a result of I had my daughter’s birthday in New York,” Fey defined.

“And I didn’t go as a result of I assumed you turkeys have been attempting to trick me once more,” Poehler added.
