Golden Globes co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler compare themselves to the Olsen twins

By Gina DiFalco,

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are gearing up to host the Golden Globes again and they’re revealing who their dream co-host would be, even explaining why they compare themselves to the Olsen twins in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

The nominations for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, which will air Jan. 12, were announced this morning, getting fans even more excited for the star-studded event.

Poehler joked the duo likes to compare themselves to twins Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen because "When we're next to each other we like to hug each other a lot, like we're in the womb, and Tina's thumbprint matches my pinkie, because that's what we were like in the womb.”

Fey added, “unlike a lot of comedy duos, we're not opposites. There's a lot of overlap in what we like and even in the way we perform, to a certain extent. We're not Martin and Lewis. We're like Derek Jeterand A-Rod."

When it comes to choosing a possible third co-host, Poehler said they would choose someone from Saturday Night Live because it would make them “feel comfortable knowing that they could hang.” However, they would give “that kid Jennifer Lawrence” a shot because she’s a “total delight.”
