Los Angeles — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are sharing Emmy gold as Saturday Night Live hosts.

They were honoured jointly in the best guest actresses in a comedy series category at Saturday's creative arts Emmy ceremony.

Fey and Poehler won as co-hosts of last year's Christmas episode on SNL. The pair didn't attend the Los Angeles event, and Bob Newhart accepted the Emmy on their behalf.

The Emmy is the first for Poehler but part of a collection for Fey. She's won eight times before, including acting and writing trophies.
