Seen here in January 2012, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the hosts of Sunday night's Golden Globes.

The Golden Globes have a well-deserved reputation for being both goofy and pretty much meaningless. They've made it into the news the last few years largely by convincing people that Ricky Gervais' Hugh Hefner jokes were dangerous and daring. (They weren't.)

This year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has actually done something very promising by lining up Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host together. Now that — that -- seems like it might be good.

And as such, we'll be here beginning at 8:00 p.m. to live-blog the whole thing, and we hope you'll be here too. I'll be joined by frequent Monkey See contributor Marc Hirsh and master Oscars blogger Joe Reid to talk about what wins, what loses, and whether anyone misses their award being announced because she's in the bathroom, ahem.

Come right back here tonight, Sunday, and we'll all enjoy it together.
