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.

Kristen Wiig held back tears as she made what is believed to be her last appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.
The final sketch during the season finale saw the actress - who has been a cast member on the show for seven years - don a cap and gown with guest host Mick Jagger acting as high school principal during a graduation scene. Kristen's character was singled out as "one particular student who is leaving this summer," and she then danced with the Rolling Stones rocker, executive producer Lorne Michaels and other cast members to the group's hit "She's a Rainbow."
Kristen then struggled to keep her emotions in check as the show's full ensemble, including Amy Poehler and Jon Hamm, appeared to sing "Ruby Tuesday, which features the line :Still I'm gonna miss you."
Network NBC have not made any official announcement about Kristen leaving the show, or commented on the rumors that Jason Sudeikis and Andy Samberg are also departing as program regulars.
Park and Recreation, truly one of TV’s most under-appreciated shows, still hasn’t returned from its Season 2 cliffhanger and we’re dying to see how Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope is going to handle another year at the Parks Department.
So…how much longer do we have to wait, already?
According to those in the know, Season 3 should be on NBC “in January or February,” though the network is keeping mum on a definite date. As November drags on, it’s becoming clearer that we’re going to have to keep waiting for more of Aziz Ansari’s fantastic one-on-ones with the camera.
The cast and crew of Parks originally expected to return to air in September, which put a huge strain on the show’s leading lady Amy Poehler (who became pregnant with her and Will Arnett’s second child). Currently, they are shooting the 12th or 13th episode of the season, though they have no idea when any of them will be put on the air.

Katy Perry has mocked her Sesame Street axing by appearing in a breast-baring Elmo T-shirt on Saturday Night Live.
The pop star appeared in a sketch on the comedy series wearing a low-cut top inspired by the red puppet and tiny plaid skirt. Katy played a volunteer librarian, named Maureen Dichico, whose large breasts were causing a stir at the local library.
Parodying the famous announcement at the end of each Sesame Street episode which reveals what letters and numbers featured in the day’s program, Katy’s sketch co-star Amy Poehler quipped, “Looks like today’s show is brought to you by the number 38 and the letters DD.”
Saturday Night Live‘s fall calendar is quickly filling up.
As previously announced, Amy Poehler will kick off the show’s 36th season this weekend with singer Katy Perry. Emmy winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)—with help from recently-added Kanye West—will then host on October 2 while another Emmy winner, Glee‘s Jane Lynch, will front the program on October 9.
After a few weeks off, the show will return on October 23 with actress Emma Stone, the star of the new film Easy A. The Halloween episode on October 30 will then feature a SNL fave: two-time host Jon Hamm (Mad Men).

What will Conan O’Brien say if he wins for The Tonight Show during this NBC event? Will Elisabeth Moss address soon-to-be ex-husband Fred Armisen if she wins for Best Supporting Actress? Oh – the awkward possibilities are endless!

The road to the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards officially kicked off early this morning. Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara (who received a nod) and Community‘s Joel McHale (who didn’t) were the ones who had the honor of reading this year’s list of nominees.
Although Mad Men - with 17 nominations - once again topped off all dramas, 30 Rock didnot
lead the comedies. Glee did. The freshman FOX series raked in a total of 19 noms, only a handful short of the overall leader. (HBO’s miniseries, The Pacific, received 24 mentions.) 30 Rock did receive 15 nominations, though, while Modern Family followed closely behind with 14.
The August 29 ceremony - which NBC will air live on both the East and West coasts - will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon. You can see a partial list of nominees after the jump.

UPDATE: You can see Betty in unaired “Debbie Downer” and “Bronx Beat” sketches after the jump.
What is it about Mother’s Day that brings out the best in Saturday Night Live? (Remember Justin Timberlake’s “Motherlover” from just last year?)
Last night’s long-awaited broadcast with Betty White was arguably the best night the show had had in quite some time. (Of course, appearances from old SNL faves - Rachel Drath, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph and Molly Shannon - were also responsible for a good number of the laughs.)
After the jump, you can watch just a few of the sketches - NPR, Scared Straight, Sally O’Malley and MacGruber - from the 88-year-old’s memorable visit.

UPDATE: White will be appearing on May 8 with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch.
It looks like NBC has struck (comedic) gold.
Over the weekend, actress Betty White confirmed to People magazine that she will indeed be appearing on Saturday Night Live. Her booking comes just over two months after a Facebook campaign was launched on her behalf.
“I don’t know why or how,” White said about the fan support, “but it’s been wonderful.”
Although Entertainment Weekly previously reported that she would be involved in a “Women of Comedy”-themed broadcast, the 88-year-old did not elaborate on her upcoming stint.
