Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will serve as co-hosts at the 2014 and 2015 Golden Globes, NBC announced Tuesday. The comedic personalities will follow up their 2013 turn hosting the show. Fey and Poehler's Globes earlier this year was considered one of the stronger performances at the awards podium in recent memory. At 19.7 million overall viewers, the Globes ratings were the highest since 2007. The pair also had well-received comedic bits including memorable jokes about James Franco's ill-fated turn as Oscar host several years before and a dig at James Cameron.

Taylor Swift obviously has no compunction about discussing her personal life -- as long as it's in a song. But the pop titan has generally demurred from longer sit-down interviews about her romantic travails and matters of the heart. In a forthcoming issue of Vanity Fair , she pulls back the curtain a bit for writer Nancy Jo Sales -- and aims her ire at some unlikely sources. First in line? Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who tossed some good-natured ribbing toward Swift and her colorful dating life (which lately included Conor Kennedy and One Direction's Harry Styles)

Tina Fey owes Sarah Palin; after all, it was Fey's spot-on impersonation of the former Republican vice presidential candidate that helped earn her an Emmy for"Saturday Night Live" in 2009. But this year, while Fey will almost certainly be up for television's top award again for her show"30 Rock," it's quite likely that another actress will get a nod for her Palin posturing. And Fey couldn't be happier for Julianne Moore, who nails Palin in the HBO movie "Game Change. " "She's fantastic!

People of America, Tina Fey needs your help. The woman otherwise known as Liz Lemon paid a visit to “Late Show With David Letterman,” where she gave viewers a glimpse into her post-“30 Rock” life which, she joked, consists mostly of going to her new Manhattan office and making toast. But Fey's pleasantly uneventful daily routine was shaken up recently when her office was burglarized, with a devious furniture mover (allegedly) stealing a computer full of her ideas for new TV shows.

With guest host Tina Fey back playing her famous doppelganger, this weekend’s "Saturday Night Live" portrayed the debate that wasn’t this week – featuring not just Sarah Palin but also would-be White House hopeful Donald Trump. FOR THE RECORD An earlier version of this story misspelled Shepard Smith's name as Sheppard. The faux Fox News debate also pitted Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann in the “GOP 2012 Undeclared Candidates Debate,” adding 2010 New York governor candidate Jimmy McMillan of the Rent is Too Damn High party for good measure.

Tina Fey brought back her uncanny Sarah Palin impression during an appearance on Bravo's "Inside the Actors Studio" this week. The "Admission" star was prompted by host James Lipton to answer questions in character, a recurring segment of his, which winks back at her impressions from the 2008 presidential campaign that were comic gold. We have Fey's "SNL" and improv background to thank for her glorious resurrection of the former Alaska governor. Fey definitely separated the mavericks from the "not mavericks," that's for sure.

For the last three years, the Golden Globes have been worshiping at the altar of Ricky Gervais, who always showed up, beer in hand, to rib, mock and belittle the celebrities gathered to accept awards. This year's ceremony, with co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, promises to be a return to a different type of hosting style -- one that's a little goofier and much less mean. Or as Fey says in their first aired promo for the ceremony, "We're so excited we'll be talking in classic Hollywood voices for all our banter!"

Beleaguered Oscar host Seth MacFarlane made no secret leading up to the show that this year's gig was a one-and-done proposition. So Tuesday's tweet to a follower's inquiry about a return engagement -- "No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though" -- wasn't a surprise. If anything, it could be seen either as MacFarlane's way of washing his hands of the Academy and its deadly serious awards show or reassuring haters that they wouldn't have him to kick around anymore. “Do me a favor and don't read the press tomorrow,” MacFarlane told guests at a West Hollywood after-party following the show.
