Amy Poehler Gossip
Amy Poehler gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Like Saturday Night Live itself, the 40th anniversary celebration show was a mixed bag. Here’s everything that was good. Andy Samberg’s digital short Because they are ALWAYS good, but this one, sung with Adam Sandler featuring an assist from Chris Parnell, highlighted the history of character breaks on the show.

Coming off Amy Poehler’s last year as co-host of the Golden Globes, I keep reminding myself that Parks And Recreation is in its final run, and I need to set my PVR. I have watched the show since the first season, when Leslie Knope was just a female Michael Scott and the entire storyline revolved around the creation of one park. Full Story

Well yeah. Of course there wasn’t enough of them, either of them. And of course, Tina Fey’s first dress made me want to dig through their castoff pile to see what she should have worn instead, although I liked Amy in Clinton Blue on the red carpet. (Lainey: I did not.) The thing with these two is they knew they were out after this year, so they had to accomplish specific things. Full Story

Amy Poehler’s book, Yes, Please, comes out today. Have you bought it yet? I’m halfway through and so far, I love it. I think it’s her self-awareness. It’s the way she’s all like, f------ck my divorce suuuuuuucked. And, Jesus, I must be the only person who’s ever felt so defeated. Full Story

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were at the ELLE Women in Hollywood event last night. And that reminds me… We’re inside 3 months until the Golden Globe Awards. Tina and Amy are returning as hosts. You remember what happened when they hosted last year? Last year during their opening monologue, they took a shot at George Clooney. Full Story

I think this might be the best she’s ever looked, overall. It’s ready to party, this dress, but it doesn’t look hard to wear. It especially doesn’t say “woe to getting older/let’s make friends with Spanx”. I am so DONE with that look. You know how Beyonce at first was a thing, before she became a religion, because she was allowed to have body parts? I want the next thing to be that someone’s allowed to have a tummy. Full Story
That’s the title of Amy Poehler’s book to be released in October. And yesterday on The Today Show, they released the cover. You like it? It’s so…neon 80s. It’s a memoir with a tweak. It will be illustrated. It might be like a diary. It will address friendship, love, parenting, and more.
It WILL be funny.
There is no doubt.
And you’ll buy one for yourself and another for your best friend?
Message to all my friends: this is what I’m getting you for Halloween.
Yours in gossip,
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler can do no wrong. They’re responsible for two of the funniest TV shows of the last decade, they’ve made the Golden Globes actually watchable, and over the years they’ve become America’s favorite big sisters. But one thing they haven’t done is deliver a really great movie. Full Story

There's a war going on between Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and George Clooney. It started at the Golden Globes. One of their best jokes was about Clooney and Gravity -- how he'd rather float off into space and die than talk to a woman his own age. The entire ballroom erupted. They loved it. And George took it well. Full Story

They say a little fear is good. That you should do one thing a day that scares you. That it’s important to feel a little of that edge-of-the-diving-board thing every day. I don’t feel like Amy and Tina had that particular fear while hosting the Golden Globes this year. I mean, they are good friends sharing a scary gig so right there, that’s less pressure. Full Story
Let’s start with Amy Poehler. I love that Amy Poehler isn’t too big to still be doing sh-t like this – running around NYC in a goofy costume crashing into people with a camera and singing Christmas carols all while generally being funny and awesome and spontaneous. She’s the BEST. Full Story
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Holidays? Sure. But… award season! The Golden Globe nominations will be announced on Thursday. In other words, the Tina and Amy Show. Tina and Amy will make coming back to work in January tolerable, promise.
That’s a lot of pressure, right? Well, you don’t think they know that? After they killed it last year, of course they know that. That they decided to return, knowing the pressure, is the point. So don’t worry whether or not it’s unfair that it’s too much pressure. Don’t patronise them with worry that it’s too much pressure. They’re good.
Last year Tina and Amy took a shot at James Franco and he wasn’t even in the room. Franco was just named Best Supporting Actor for his work in Spring Breakers by the LA Film Critics Association in a tie with Jared Leto. Read Full Intro

Amy Poehler went for a walk in New York with her boyfriend Nick Kroll yesterday. They’ve been dating at least 6 months now. Did you know he had such smart style? Look at that shirt underneath his sweater – sharp! In the evening, Amy and Nick were both at the Gotham Film Awards where Amy spent a lot of time with Rashida Jones which makes me happy and warm inside. Full Story

I received the following text last night, verbatim: “Tina Fay [sic] is on PBS. I just love her dress.” She was one of the presenters helping to give the Mark Twain Prize for Humor to Carol Burnett. (This happened in October but the event aired on PBS last night.) Before we get to Tina: 1. Full Story
