No one will be exempt from Tina Fey’s sharp social criticism when she and Amy Poehler host Sunday night’s Golden Globes — not even Bill Cosby.

When Access Hollywood asked Fey whether jokes about Cosby, who has made headlines recently as allegations of rape mount against him, would be fair game, Fey answered with a resounding, “Oh, heck yes!”

Fey appeared at the Television Critics Association Winter Tour to promote her new Netflix series, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

Fey, though, wanted to be clear that she and Poehler never intend to be malicious when they host. “Amy and I have always said that the idea is that we don’t want anyone attending to be scared to be there because of us,” Fey said. “It’s a party and it’s — in the grand scheme of the world, it couldn’t be less important — and I think that’s what makes it fun.”

The Golden Globes will air on Sunday on NBC. “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” bows on Netflix on March 6.
