Already familiar with the ceremony with their respective TV shows - Fey is the creator and star of "30 Rock," which bids farewell this season, and Amy Poehler stars in "Parks and Recreation" - the friends will impart their comic talents as hosts of the movie and television fete. “Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year's festivities is a major coup,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming, NBC Entertainment.
