The Golden Globe Awards has announced that 2021 hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will lead the ceremony from two locations this year.

While Fey broadcasts live from The Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center in New York City, Poehler will host from the Globes’ usual location inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. The news was first announced by Variety.

The rationale for hosting in two separate locations was made by the show's organisers, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, NBC, and Dick Clark Productions, as the entertainment industry continues to grapple with the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 2021 Golden Globe nominations will be announced on Wednesday, 3 February, with Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson announcing the major categories at 5:35am PT/8:35am ET, live on NBC’s Today show.

The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air on 28 February on NBC. Fey and Poehler are set to reunite as hosts for the first time since 2015.

"We just have a few final questions," Poehler told Late Night host Seth Meyers when the news was announced in January. “When, how, why, where and what? Just those, that's all we need to find out. But we're going to figure it out."

“NBC has long been home to two of the funniest people on the planet – Tina Fey and Amy Poehler,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Teledgy said when the news was officially announced during the Television Critics Association Tour. “And we didn't want to wait any longer to share the great news that they'll be hosting the Globes once again.”
