They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been widely recognized for their excellent job in hosting last year's Golden Globes, and when we reported earlier how the two were going to host the awards show for the next 2 years, we basically lizzed our pants!
Thankfully, the suits over at NBC (the real life Jack Donaghys) recognized their AHmazingness too, and gave the pair a huge, multi-million dollar deal!
According to a source, Tina & Amy will get up to a whopping 4 million dollars…each! For each performance!
“They are each being paid more than any Oscar host in history with the exception of Billy Crystal…Tina and Amy will each make $4 million on the deal but also they are getting a huge perks package that includes use of the NBC/Comcast private planes as they prep for the awards and full freight on their entourages, who will all be backstage to support [them] during the live broadcasts. Also, Tina wants her husband Jeff [Richmond] to be involved in the musical packaging of the Globes, which is a separate seven-figure deal that is still being worked out. They basically saw how desperate NBC was for their help and decided to take them for a ride."
We hope the "full freight of their entourages" includes all of Parks and Rec, and at least Grizz and Dot Com!
Never was a pay day so very well deserved!
Congrats you two HIGHlarious ladies!
