Announcing the news, Solvej Schou, who writes for Entertainment Weeklys Pop Watch blog, recalled Adam Carollas snipe that the reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks.
So why should this, two women hosting, and specifically Fey and Poehler, be celebrated, cheered, yelled from rooftops, if ones energetic enough? Schou wrote. Because Fey ... and Poehler ... are the kind of funny, truly funny, women that deserve to host a ceremony thats just as freewheeling, sassy and entertaining as they are, while also honoring both television and film.
