Amy Poehler Gossip
Amy Poehler gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
This new Taylor Swift interview in Vanity Fair... Let’s break it up into two parts. Because, as it always is with Taylor Swift, there’s SO MUCH TO FEEL. The article was written by Nancy Jo Sales, a veteran writer who you may remember from that classic, amazing article on Leonardo DiCaprio I linked to Full Story
Who were the big winners at the Oscars?
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler beat the Oscars. They didn’t just beat Seth MacFarlane (although we’ll get to him later), they beat the Academy. Because that… that was a poorly produced show. Where were all the cutaways? If your host makes a George Clooney joke, that’s PRE-WRITTEN, and George Clooney would take it well, CUT TO GEORGE CLOONEY. He can take it, I promise. If you’re unsure, just go to Jack. No one will complain if you go to Jack. Going to Jack is way better than staying on Seth MacFarlane, I promise.
The stage was beautiful. And that’s it. The William Shatner bit was too long. He was overwritten which meant he wasn’t spontaneous. He didn’t react to the audience. Most of it is preparation, sure. Read Full Intro

You don’t often get to see a lot of the non-nominated. You see a lot of the sound-editing types, who are nervous but self-aware enough to know that nobody cares, and you get the occasional shot of Jack Nicholson, but as discussed elsewhere on this blog today, Jack Nicholson is his own man, and can’t be compared to anyone.

This is the first time in my memory that we’ve come off an awards show and, of the hosts, gone “f-ck yeah!” They were spectacular, and this was not supposed to be the case. I mean, of course it was but anyone else would have crumbled under the hype. Not our girls. They were absolutely top-level. Full Story
Well, you knew that was happening as soon as she wrote the song for The Hunger Games soundtrack. That’s all the Hollywood Foreign Press Association would have needed to put her name down for a nomination. Have they even listened to the music? Please. Who cares? Does it matter? Taylor Swift has been nominated for a Golden Globe. Full Story
How can you go wrong? I literally do not know anyone who was not delighted with the news that Poehler and Feyare going to host the often-completely-sleepy Golden Globe awards, although I’m sure you’re out there, whispering behind your hand and hoping you don’t get caught. Stay inside. Full Story

I mean, were you worried, in any way? Did you think maybe there would be a situation where you would have to be concerned for Amy Poehler? Let me set your mind at ease: there is not. I admit now that my Twitter pun of “Holy Poehler” is not that cute but I was rather proud of it at the time. Full Story
Of course it’s sad. It’s never anything but sad. Two people who wanted to be together forever don’t want that anymore. It’s always sad. But also, when I read about the Poehler-Arnett split, two people I’ve never met but, of course, feel like I would like a lot, I get anxious. Full Story

There were several peplums represented last night. To me Amy Poehler wore hers best. She looked the most comfortable. And really, really confident. No clunky accessories around her neck, nothing extra about the hair, although, God, I really wish they’d let it die, that skirt feathering from 2006. Full Story

I know it was officially the Time 100 party last night but scanning through all the pictures it really looked like it was Amy Poehler’s party. I want to go to an Amy Poehler party. Remember at the Emmys when all the comedy ladies took the stage like a pageant and held each other until a winner was crowned? You know that was all Poehler, right? Poehler is what Ashley Judd was trying to write Full Story

Will Arnett hosted the first annual Laughter Is The Best Medicine Gala in support of Toronto East General Hospital last night. I was born at Toronto East General! And my cousin Cat and I worked there for a summer as kitchen staff. They always say hospital food sucks. I put on 10 lbs working there because it didn’t. Full Story
Lainey messaged me on Saturday about why it seemed like SNL is always better when the host is a returning cast member as opposed to a celebrity. Knee-jerk reaction: because they’re proper comedians and they get it. But it does go a little deeper than that, because there many examples of actors who make excellent hosts—Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Christopher Walken and John Goodman come to mind. Full Story

Lainey and I were talking the other night about Daniel Radcliffe, during his SNL hosting. Between the sense of humour he clearly has about himself and the Parade interview he gave recently where he so obviously gets that you can’t really go ‘up’ from Harry Potter (not in notoriety, box office, sheer workdays), I realized – he’s gonna be FINE.
