This weekend, politicians and D-list celebs like Caroline Manzo hobnobbed at “nerd prom” aka the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but if I could have had my pick, I would have gone to the Comedy Awards instead. Tons of funny and fine-lookin’ ladies were in attendance; we know they brought the jokes, but did they bring it in the fashion department as well? Let’s find out…

It’s no secret that Leslie Knope is one of our favorite characters on TV. She’s smart, funny, ambitious, loyal, and endlessly committed to her town, her friends, and her job. Her wardrobe of grey suits, tie-front blouses, simple jewelry, and sensible shoes isn’t exactly high fashion, but it’s actually a pretty cute style equation for a business casual work environment.

When I see a photo of Abel Arnett, the adorrrrrable son of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, all I can think of is that scene from “So I Married An Axe Murderer,” where Mike Myers plays the old Scottish dad. “I’m not kidding, it’s like an orange on a toothpick. That’s a huge noggin. That’s a virtual planetoid. Has it’s own weather system. Heeeeed, moooooooooove! I’m not kidding, that boy’s head is like Sputnik; spherical but quite pointy at parts!” I don’t mean this in a negative way of course; Abel is just a big ol’ ginger Benjamin Button baby and I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.
Look, I am not one of those people who is nostalgic for the good ol’ days of “Saturday Night Live,” when the Coneheads and Pat were making everyone laugh. No, I like “SNL” now. But that doesn’t mean it always cracks me up. Usually I watch the show on Sunday mornings, with my coffee and New York Post, and I smile and maybe a giggle or two pops out. But when Maya Rudolph hosted the show this weekend — featuring special guests Amy Poehler and Justin Timberlake — I cracked the hell up.
Above, Blue Ivy Carter meets Prince, Taylor Swift, Brangelina, and Bon Iver, portrayed perfectly by Timberlake. And after the jump, more sketches I loved. Keep reading »
Meet Abel Arnett, the young son of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. I am totally in love with his chubby little belly and fat little hands and swirl of ginger hair. He’s like a little old Irish man in a baby’s body, like a Benjamin O’Button. Ugh, my ovaries can’t handle it.
Did you catch Jimmy Fallon hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend? I’m not the hugest Jimmy fan, but I thought he did a great job hosting — after all, he was a fulltime cast member for years. And he didn’t do it alone! It was a full blown reunion of past cast members, including Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who showed up with Jimmy to challenge Seth to a joke-off. Clip above!
What’s not to love about Amy Poehler? She’s smart, sassy, and oh-so-funny. Here, Amy accepts the Variety Power of Comedy Award from Will Farrell and shows the world why she’s managed to earn so much acclaim and adulation. [NYMag.com]
Fresh off the news that women are getting the short shrift when it comes to representation in film, we hear that our fave YouTube comediennes, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobsen — aka the funny chicks behind “Broad City” — are in talks to produce their very own pilot for FX. So maybe things are changing around these parts. If you haven’t seen “Broad City”‘s particular brand of off-beat, lady-centered comedy, check out this clip, featuring fellow Upright Citizens Brigade alums Kristen Schaal and Amy Poehler. [YouTube]
Wouldn’t it be awesome to sit around with “Parks and Recreation” stars Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza and Rashida Jones and eat a bunch of candy? Well now you can! Watch as the ladies try out a bunch of snacks. (Pro tip: avoid the Pulparinos.) [RookieMag]
“I think films are kind of catching up in a way to where television has been for a long time. Television is still, in my opinion, the best place for female characters. I’m so down with TV right now. Everything I watch is on TV and I love everything on TV and I think most TV shows are better than movies—there, I said it.”
—Amy Poehler talks at the New Yorker Festival this weekend about how enthused she is about the female characters she’s seeing right now on television. Of course, she is in part talking about her character Leslie Knope on “Parks and Recreation,” who Amy says is her “favorite feminist on TV.” Amy explains that she actually is a lot like Leslie in real life, except that Leslie “loves to go camping, and I do not.” [ONTD]
