Tina Fey, Amy Poehler to host Golden Globes

This year's Golden Globes ceremony was watched by 16.8 million TV viewers, finishing within 1 percent of the 17 million viewers who tuned in to the 2011 broadcast, according to the Nielsen Co.

The Globes are usually handed out about a week before the Academy Award nominations are announced, but that won't be the case next year. The motion-picture academy has moved up the Oscar nominations announcement to Jan. 10 — three days before the Globes are set to air Jan. 13. The earlier date for the nomination unveiling for the 85th annual Academy Awards, which will be hosted Feb. 24 by "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, could steal attention away from the Globes.
