Tina Fey hopes the celebrities at the Golden Globe Awards get drunk and embarrass themselves.
The 30 Rock star will co-host the ceremony with her friend Amy Poehler, but the duo believe alcohol will help make the night more entertaining and are hoping those attending will drink lots.
"Because it's such a fun kind of sloppy night, it's not really about the host giving any kind of big comedy performance. It's our job to keep things moving and also try to get the movie stars more liquored-up so that hopefully someone's boob will fall out of a dress. That's our main role. The luckiest we could get would be for something interesting and spontaneous to happen. We have a lot of spontaneous things planned," Tina said.
However, Parks and Recreation star Amy joked she is going on a pub-crawl before the ceremony on Sunday: "I'm going to pub-crawl it all the way to the venue and then try to take a two-hour blackout nap before we start, and then as soon as the show is over, I'm going to go on a 10-day juice cleanse."
Much to the delight of 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation fans, comedic besties Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host this year's Golden Globe Awards, replacing Ricky Gervais, who has hosted the awards ceremony for three consecutive years.
The pair - who were Saturday Night Live co-stars and worked on several projects together, including Mean Girls and Baby Mama - have known each other since their pre-fame days working with Chicago's Second City improv troupe. One can only imagine the laughs the two comediennes will generate when they take to the hosting stage on January 13.

Ricky Gervais will not host the Golden Globe Awards again. The comedian - who aimed a number of crude jokes at celebrities in the audience when he fronted the event in Los Angeles on Sunday - has instructed his agent not to let him present the ceremony for a fourth time because he doesn't enjoy the prestigious hosting role until the evening is over.
Writing on his official blog, Ricky - who came under fire after insulting several celebrities in the audience while hosting the spectacle in 2011 - said, "Thank f**k that's over. I had a blast actually. It was by far my favorite of the three hosting stints. I've told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though. It's like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realize you didn't die and it was quite an amazing thing to do."
The 50-year-old star's latest jibes saw him joke about Jodie Foster's sexuality and poke fun at Justin Bieber's recent paternity scandal - but he thinks the audience understood his crude comedy a lot more this time around: "The crowd were great this year too. I think they finally worked out that my gags only seemed rude and nasty but were actually not too scary at all. Or they were just drunker. Either way, it was fun but I'm glad to say I'm off to New York to chill out a bit."
It’s pretty hard to say no to a star when they’re holding a Golden Globe in their hand. Just ask Glee’s Chris Colfer.
Weeks ago, the man behind the Kurt told reporters that he’d like to have Anne Hathaway on the show -- and now, he’s getting his wish.
Hathway caught up to Glee writer/creator Ryan Murphy during Sunday’s Golden Globe celebration, and he’s confirmed that she will be appearing in at least one episode of the series. Previously, Colfer said Hathaway wanted to play his lesbian aunt.
We're convinced she'll nail it, but it's time to ask an important question: can she sing? Watch the video above to hear Murphy's comments.

“He definitely crossed the line. And some of the things were totally unacceptable,” Philip Berk, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, made a statement regarding Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais. The comedian, predictably, made jokes about Hollywood’s actors and the event itself -- sparking many groans and much laughter.
“But that’s Ricky,” the president added. “Any of the references to individuals is certainly not something the Hollywood Foreign Press [who hosts the Golden Globes] condones.”
“I had no idea what Ricky was going to say, so anything I heard was the same time you heard it. When you hire Ricky Gervais, you expect the unexpected.”

The Golden Globe contenders for the 2010-11 season were officially announced Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills by Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood.
Last year's Best Comedy Series winner, Glee, lead all television programs with a total of five nominations. Five series -- 30 Rock, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Good Wife and Mad Men -- tied for second place with three nods each.
Here are some of the notable omissions/inclusions from this year's list of nominees:
- The Good Wife was the only non-cable series to be recognized for Best Drama.
- The Walking Dead replaced that other horror series (True Blood), giving AMC two nominations in the Drama category.
- The limitations of the Best Supporting Actor category meant only two acting noms for the cast of Modern Family.
- Jennifer Love Hewitt has found herself pitted against Claire Danes ... and Dame Judi Dench.
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards -- hosted again by Ricky Gervais -- will air Jan. 16 on NBC.

Ricky Gervais will be returning to host the Golden Globes for the second year in a row next January.
The British comedian - who received mixed reviews for his performance earlier this year - has vowed to do his best to upset the producers.
“I suppose it is flattering, to be honest, and it was a surprise. I had so much fun last year,” he joked. “I’m going to go out all this time. I’m going to make sure they’re never going to invite me back. I can’t believe they invited me back after awful things I said. Let’s see how far I can take it this time.”
Audience members winced at last year’s awards when The Office creator joked about Mel Gibson’s previous alcohol problems and Sir Paul McCartney’s expensive divorce from Heather Mills.
However, President of the Golden Globes Philip Berk says he is delighted to see him return. “We are thrilled to have Ricky back as the host of the Golden Globe Awards. His combination of wit, irreverence and spontaneity makes him the ideal host. He was fantastic last year, and he’ll be even better the second time around,” he said.
Next season’s broadcast will take place on January 16 on NBC.
Sunday evening had a little bit of something for everyone: sports, glamour, action and drama. Unfortunately, this meant mixed results for some network staples. And though the Golden Globes brought NBC its best 18-49 performance for a non-sports event since ER‘s finale, CBS won both the viewers and the demos with its playoff action.
- The 67th Annual Golden Globes (5.4/13 in 18-49) dazzled 16.9 million.
- A later edition of 60 Minutes (4.1/11) reported to 15.8 million.
- The series debut of Human Target (2.9/7) had 10.1 million it its sights.
- A repeat of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition* (6.5 million, 1.8/4) kicked off ABC’s lackluster night.
