Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the silver lining to a likely strange Golden Globes

The high-spirited, frequently unforeseeable (and boozy) occasion, where movie and tv creatives come together to be honored by some 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be live and — like the majority of whatever else nowadays — mostly virtual in the continuous pandemic.

There will be no red carpet or audience of candidates crowded at tables in the ballroom of The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, leading the celebrations for a 4th time, will be different however together, as it were, on 2 various coasts.

Luckily, we’ll have Fey and Poehler to provide us some comic relief on Sunday. If we’re fortunate, they’ll have us chuckling through the night, advising us there are still good ideas on the planet that deserve a smile.

Follow CNN all night long for total protection. The Golden Globes air at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
