Well this is an early Christmas present if we do say so ourselves. Our favourite female power duo, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, are reuniting once more and we’re already feeling the glorious laughs that are about to come our way.
The pair, who killed it hosting the Golden Globes three years in a row, are back together, this time at their old stomping grounds: Saturday Night Live. NBC announced on Tuesday that the gals will host the annual Christmas episode, which has been helmed by the likes of Mick Jagger and Jimmy Kimmel in the past.
Of course with Amy and Tina should come a slew of their friends. We’re fully expecting Alec Baldwin, a frequent SNL pop-up player, to stop by. In our dreams, the threesome would recreate the “Schweddy Balls” sketch, but with a slight update.
We’d also love if Amy’s other BFF, Seth Meyers could stop by, and the pair could do a special edition of the Weekend Update‘s “Really” surrounding whatever holiday controversy is going on that week. Sadly, it will be way too late for the Starbucks Christmas Cup Fiasco at that point.
It would also be ah-mah-zing if the duo could somehow bring back the mom jeans or Bush twins, because we still hold some really fond memories of those characters. Naturally, we’d love to see them reprise Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, but given Fey’s fatigue of the character and how much Kate McKinnon is killing it as Clinton so far this season, we’d be okay with them skipping out on those. Unless McKinnon and Clinton want to do a Clinton Christmas Rap-Off, or something.
Of course the real beauty of having these two side-by-side again is that we all know they’re going to come up with some killer new material, as they always do. After all, there’s a reason we were all hoping to have them host the Golden Globes for a fourth time.
So while we count down the days until Dec. 19 (we should probably also mention that Bruce Springsteen is the musical guest), let’s just relive this “golden” moment, shall we?
