The Golden Globe Awards just gained a whole lotta female power -- Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been named hosts!

The former "SNL" castmates -- and only two women to ever co-anchor the Weekend Update segment on the show -- will hit the stage in January for the 70th anniversary of the big shindig.

The hysterical ladies take over for controversial Brit Ricky Gervais who'd hosted the awards the previous three years.

Tina and Amy are no strangers to the fun show: Amy was nominated this year for her role as Leslie Knope on the sitcom "Parks and Recreation," while Tina has been nominated the past five years -- winning twice -- for her lovable Liz Lemon on "30 Rock."

The 70th Golden Globe Awards air live on Sunday, Jan. 13 on NBC.

Are you happy with the choice? How do you think the ladies will do? Sound off below!
