The Golden Globes are coming! The Golden Globes are coming! And we cannot wait for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunited to co-host Hollywood’s biggest self-congratulatory-fest that honors achievement in television and film, and where the Veuve Clicquot flows freely.

In the second ad released teasing the comedic twosome's hosting gig, which is also the first time women have hosted the awards without a male co-host, Fey and Poehler promises the celebration will be "splendid, wondorous, clever, full of surprises, extreme pageantry, slightly drunken, and ghetto" — and that's just the red carpet!

If it weren’t enough that these two titans of comedy are hosting the Globes, the 30 Rock star and the Parks and Recreation star are both nominated in the same category for Best Actress in a TV Musical or Comedy. That should make for some good faux-rivalry on stage.

Oh, and there are a few other people nominated too. While there are plenty of LGBT adjacencies, there’s just one out actress nominated — and that’s Sarah Paulson for her supporting role in American Horror Story: Asylum, in which she also plays lesbian. Notably, HBO’s miniseries Game Change, the Julianne Moore starrer about Sarah Palin’s ascendance to the Vice Presidential nomination, is up for best miniseries, and Paulson was just terrific in that as Nicole Wallace. The 70th annual Golden Globes will air Jan. 13, on NBC. Check out the full list of nominees.
