(UPI) -- Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be the hosts of the 70th and 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, the organization announced Tuesday.

"We are thrilled Amy and Tina have decided to return as hosts of the Golden Globe Awards for the next two years," Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Theo Kingma said in a statement.

"Their return ensures that the Golden Globes will once again be the biggest, best and most entertaining awards celebration of the year."

The stars first hosted the Golden Globes in January 2013, which earned the awards show a 17 percent jump in viewership.

"Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season," said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late-night programming for NBC.

"We're elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years."
