Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer hosting next year’s Golden Globes is a great idea…that’s not going to happen.
Whoever organized this year’s show was clever enough to find a way to guarantee that J.Law and A.Schu would end up onstage together -- they were the only two actors paired to present their movie clips -- and fulfill the world’s demand for BFF banter. Like when Lawrence said, “As women in Hollywood, people have a lot of preconceived notions about us.”
And Schumer chimed in, “They’re just like, ‘Oh Jen, Amy, they’re so pretty, and everyone likes them and wants to hang out with them. They seem so fun to be around and, ‘Oooo, they should be models.’”
Afterward, pretty much everyone had the same reaction:

There *is* precedent, after all, that when funny lady comedian best friends host the Globes together, it’s a huge success. Sadly, Lawrence tells us that's the exact reason she would never want to host the show.
“Not after Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!” the now three-time Golden Globe winner revealed on the red carpet. “No one can follow them!”
So, we may have to settle for Ricky Gervais -- again -- next year, but perhaps this bit is a sign of what’s to come in the movie the actresses wrote together. That is, if Lawrence winning Best Actress over Schumer didn’t ruin everything.
After all, when they were both nominated, the Trainwreck star told ET, "The friendship is completely over. I just blocked her number. It's over."
Backstage, after winning the award, Lawrence was asked how bad she feels about beating her friend. “She's going to be fine! It wasn't a matter of feeling bad because she's funny, and hilarious, and will win many things,” the Joy actress said. “I just really expected Amy to win, this was truly very surprising to me.”
Meanwhile, Schumer had the perfect response to her “biggest accomplishment” of the year: Getting a boyfriend.
