Social media wants Schumer and Lawrence to host 2017 Golden Globes

Despite competing against each other at the Golden Globe Awards, there was no love loss between Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence.

Lawrence went on to win the award for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy” for her role in David O. Russell’s Joy (Schumer was nominated for her turn in the comedy Trainwreck), but in Twitter’s eyes, both leading ladies were winners on the night.

BFFs in real life, Schumer and Lawrence appeared together onstage at the ceremony to promote each other’s films (Trainwreck and Joy were also battling it out in the “Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy” category), and the reaction on Twitter was unanimously positive.

The two Hollywood actresses have undeniable chemistry, which they used in their dialogue to riff on everything from Hollywood nicknames (“J.Law” and “A.Schu”) to the pressure on female actors in the industry. At one point, Schumer almost dropped the c-bomb, before being interrupted by Lawrence, to roars of laughter from the star-studded crowd.

Although it was a brief moment in the three-hour long coverage, it caught Twitter’s attention (much like Leonardo DiCaprio’s eyebrows). Even within the lighthearted context of the Globes – which has transformed into the Oscar’s rowdy young sibling – Twitter was so taken with the two besties that users started petitioning the Globes to get them to host next year’s ceremony.

If Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer don't host the Globes next year I will be highly disappointed in the entire AFPA.

Jennifer Lawrence and @amyschumer should host the golden globes together next year

It’s a tad bit early to predict who will oversee the awards next year, but Schumer and Lawrence hosting Golden Globes 2017 could be a possibility. Following the mixed reactions to Ricky Gervais’ performance, and the fact that the British comedian has now hosted four times in the last six years, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association could be after someone fresh to take the reins next year. Female presenting duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did a fine job in 2015 (their third and final time presenting), setting a precedent for double acts. Additionally, actors have a history of hosting awards ceremonies. Billy Crystal has hosted the Oscars nine times in total, and Anne Hathaway and James Franco hosted the ceremony to mixed reviews in 2011.

The 74th annual Golden Globe Awards honor some of the best projects and performers from the past year of movies and television. Along with being a boozy and relatively loose affair, the event typically has a few surprises in store for pre-show prognosticators.

With Jimmy Fallon as the host, this year's ceremony showered honors on Whiplash director Damien Chazelle's modern musical La La Land, which took home a Golden Globe for each of the seven categories in which it was nominated. Along with being named the year's best movie (in the comedy or musical category) and awarding trophies to both its stars, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, the film also took home Golden Globes for its director, screenplay, and original score, and original song, City of Stars.

The Golden Globes are Sunday night, and as Rolling Stone notes, they're a looser and hipper version of the Academy Awards. The hosting baton has been passed to Jimmy Fallon, the first new host in seven years. He follows Ricky Gervais and the duo of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.

The show, originating at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, starts on NBC at 8 p.m. ET Sunday, and will be preceded by "Golden Globes Arrival Special" at 7 p.m. ET. That's where all of the beautiful people stroll up the red carpet with fans gawking and they have to face tough questions like "Who are you wearing?" E! will have its own coverage starting at 6 p.m. ET, with Giuliana Rancic and Ryan Seacrest anchoring the coverage. Does Seacrest ever sleep? Perhaps that's a question for another day.
