Before you get your hopes up, however, the inquiry is still informal, as Fey and Poehler declined to sign on for another hosting gig when given the option last year. As Deadline notes, the two are extremely busy, but because the Golden Globes are just an excuse to play drinking games, there's a possibility Fey and Poehler could clear out enough time to host again:
But unlike the Oscars, which are a massive undertaking requiring about three months of prep work for the host(s), the Golden Globes are not as labor intensive for the hosts, who don’t have as big a role on the free-wheeling show. In fact, until the 2010 show hosted by Gervais, the Golden Globes were held without a host, showcasing the movie and TV stars aided by the abundance of alcohol at the ceremony. A Globes hosting gig normally is a couple-week commitment, which makes it manageable for in-demand personalities like Fey and Poehler. NBC and DCP are expected to open more active conversations with the pair next month as the goal is to have a host in place by end of November, before nominations are announced in December.
Poehler and Fey hosted one of the most-watched Golden Globes ever, which pulled in 19.7 million viewers.
