(Newser) – OK, so it may be a report from gossip site Radar Online, but we can totally see Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing this: While making a deal to host the Golden Globes for the next two years, they "decided to ask for the craziest package ever given to awards hosts," says a production source. "They basically saw how desperate NBC was for their help and decided to take them for a ride." As a result, they each stand to make as much as $4 million each time they host, Radar reports.

"They are each being paid more than any Oscar host in history with the exception of Billy Crystal," who made almost $5 million in 2012, the source says. (For comparison's sake, most first-time Oscar hosts make around $2 million.) Plus, Fey and Poehler are also getting "a huge perks package," the source says, including use of NBC's private planes. And Fey's husband might be involved with the music, which could mean "a separate seven-figure deal."

That's an obscene amount of money, but I'd rather see it go to Tiny and Amy than Billy Crystal. No offense.

$4 million for one night of work to hand out trophies to other millionaires? Newser isn't going crazy over this? If it was a CEO or a fund manager making that kind of money, the newser crowd would be going nuts!
