Suck it, Tina Fey! Feck off, Lena Dunham! Amy Poehler is here to write the greatest book in all the land. HarperCollins is publishing a memoirish “illustrated, non-linear diary” promising “true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons.” Uh, hello? Amy Poehler’s entire life is a life lesson: be best friends with Tina Fey, make adorable ginger babies, work with Adam Scott. Her book deal terms haven’t been disclosed, but whatever her publishers paid Miss Amy, it’s not nearly half as much as its worth. We must sit on our hands until 2014 for this masterpiece. Start your countdown clocks now. [AP] [Photo: Splash News]

Last night’s Golden Globe Awards were, hands down, the funniest the show has ever been. I’m serious. I realize that’s a big statement to make, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought it and, frankly, were even a bit under used. And I never say that about award show hosts. But the show overall was filled with many, many awesome moments, from Adele’s win for best song, to Lena Dunham and “Girls” surprise wins, to Jodie Foster’s incredible kinda sorta coming out speech. Let’s review the best moments, in picture, GIF and video form… Keep reading »
Another election is four years away? Blerg. At least we’ve got plenty of time to convince Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to make the Poehler/Fey ticket actually happen. (Although, would it be great if they launched their campaign while hosting Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards?) Those bitches would get stuff done and wear sweatshirts and sensible shoes while doing it. Just think: instead of war we’d have “page offs” and we’d squeeze our mind grapes to solve real problems in America. Liberty, justice and Cheesy Blasters for all. Vote Poehler/Fey, 2016!

Awards shows are a dime a dozen, but we like the Golden Globes because all the nominees are drinking and eating while the show goes on, and are generally sloshed by the time they get on stage. That, plus Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are hosting this year’s awards, which means it’s going to be extra funny. Tina and Amy know how pat and stale these things can be, and they’ve created their own drinking game. We are a tad partial to ours, only because it’s a bit more specific — more like a scavenger hunt than a drinking game. Or like a scavenger hunt with your TV. And booze. (The Golden Globes air Sunday January 13 at 8ET/5PT on NBC. )
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler + Ballgowns and Chuck Taylors = Perfection.
The green-eyed monster: it’s nice to know that even super-successful, “Saturday Night Live”-starring, Golden Globes-hosting, Tina Fey-best-friending Amy Poehler has had to slay that one. Her advice on how not to let jealousy make you a bitter person might proves Amy might be most rational person in Hollywood!
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey still haven’t gotten back to us about our suggestion that they co-host our bad dates and therapy sessions. They were probably just busy filming this promo for the 2013 Golden Globes, which they are co-hosting on Sunday, January 13. And here are the 2013 Golden Globe nominations in case you want to join the ranks of people on the Internet who are very angry about who got snubbed this year.

“Ask Amy” is back! This time, Amy Poehler is stopping a pint-sized people pleaser in her tracks. “Maybe you can stop trying, turn that energy back on yourself, and you become more attractive when you love yourself. You attract the right things when you have a sense of who you are,” Amy advises. “I know it’s tough at 15 to have that. It’s tough at 41 to have that! But I think that may be the way in: to stop trying and let go.” Amy seems a little choked up this time. Is it just me or do you imagine she might be calling upon her split from Will Arnett in this one?
“It was a real honor that in my sitcom debut I got to meet someone like Leslie Knope, who believes so deeply in public service. She’s an example for men and women across the country that there’s no higher calling than helping other people. On a personal note, I’ll never figure out how Leslie Knope got my home phone number, but that really just shows how committed she is.”
–Vice President Joe Biden expresses his delight about making a cameo on “Parks and Recreation” alongside Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope, who has an infamous crush on him. As Leslie explained last season, “Joe Biden is on my celebrity sex list–well, he is my celebrity sex list.” Excited to see the pair’s sexual chemistry in action? Biden’s episode airs November 15th.

I love that Archie Arnett went all out with his Batman costume, but my beloved big serious baby Abel is kind of just dressed in his usual half-assed fireman getup. I am pretty sure Abel and I have the same approach to Halloween, which is to wear our usual clothes with a Halloween accessory or two. We’re too busy doing other things, like being awesome, to get too worked up about the holiday. See a few more pics after the jump! Keep reading »
