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
I mean, it’s a no-brainer. Isn’t it? Tina and Amy have done the impossible – they’ve secured hosting spots for the Golden Globes for the next two years in a row. They were awesome, everyone agreed. They were awesome because they A) Didn’t pull any punches – they left everything on the floor; and B) Were equal opportunity offenders – Taylor Swift jokes weren’t the only ones that landed (they’re just the ones that everyone remembers some 10 months later); and finally, and most importantly… C) They didn’t f*cking care if you liked it.

It’s Monday morning. You’ve got five horrible days to get through before (Canadian) Thanksgiving. Your job’s a joke/you’re broke/your love life’s D.O.A. etc. BUT I’ve got something to show you that’s going to inspire you to keep kicking butt all week long, and it comes in the form of, of course, Amy Poehler.

Okay, let’s get the sartorial stuff out of the way first. Tina’s dress fit her impeccably. But it was, yes, kind of a boring blue. But her hair was a whole new colour! And she looked more comfortable than she often does on these carpets. Amy Poehler looks like she’s drinking the blood of virgins. Full Story

No Girl Sh-t here… Amy Poehler and Aubrey Plaza, co-stars on Parks & Rec, went to the movies together last night. It was Afternoon Delight. Aubrey makes a great bitch face, non? I feel like we’ve underappreciated her in this department. Earlier in the day, Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher hit the gym. Full Story
The Obama administration invited several Hollywood players to participate in discussions about the Affordable Health Care Act yesterday including Jennifer Huston, Funny or Die’s Mike Farah, and Amy Poehler in the hope that they’ll be able to better educate young people about the policies and encourage youth support of the program.

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
