Who Helped Hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey Prepare Their Golden Globes Jokes? Funnyman Seth Meyers!
Seth Meyers isn’t worried about Golden Globe Awards hosts Amy Poehler and Tiny Fey being entertaining tomorrow. Why not? He prepared them for the show himself! The soon-to-be host of Late Night tells InStyle that he is the man behind the duo’s roster of jokes for tomorrow night's awards – well kind of. “I have readied myself for the beautiful music of Poehler and Fey,” he told us at Diane von Furstenberg’s Journey of a Dress exhibition premiere in Los Angeles on Friday night, which brought out an A-list of stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Demi Moore. “I’ve been helping out, every year. The last two years, those of us who have worked with them have been happy to suggest jokes; not that they really need our help.”
As for the comedic lineup, Meyers says we should expect to be highly entertained, just like last year. “I heard their jokes last night – we went to a read-through and they are in great shape, they are great,” says Meyers, who takes on the role of presenter at this year’s awards. “They have earned the goodwill of the audience. It is the perfect formula for that kind of show."
