Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have NBC right where they want them, on their knees, begging pretty please to host the Golden Globes again. “Amy, we’re postponing your show’s Halloween episode until long after all the fake Ron Swanson mustaches have been thrown back in the closet, but we’ll do anything you want. ANYTHING…*seductively strokes peacock feathers*.” Obviously, they already said yes, but how many plucked feathers did it take?
They will both take home as much as $4 million each time they host the event.
“Tina and Amy decided to ask for the craziest package ever given to awards hosts,” says a source who says the funny duo started negotiating the deal back in March. “They are each being paid more than any Oscar host in history with the exception of Billy Crystal.”
The source adds: “Tina and Amy will each make $4 million on the deal but also they are getting a huge perks package that includes use of the NBC/Comcast private planes as they prep for the awards and full freight on their entourages, who will all be backstage…Also, Tina wants husband Jeff [Richmond] to be involved in the musical packaging of the Globes, which is a separate seven-figure deal that’s still being worked out.” (Via)
Ah yes, the tried and true “throwing a dump truck full of money at something that worked once before” method, or as it’s referred to colloquially, the NBC.
