Comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to return as co-hosts of the Golden Globes for the next two years.

The actresses proved to be big hits with viewers and critics alike when they teamed up to take charge of the Hollywood prizegiving in January (13), and now they have agreed to reprise their roles as presenters for 2014 and 2015.

A statement issued by Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Theo Kingma reads: "It's wonderful news. They have always been our first choice as hosts and we're delighted they are back for the next two years."

The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards will take place in Los Angeles on 12 January (14).
