Jeez, when will award shows finally wise up and give Leslie Knope what she deserves?! The time is now, Hollywood Foreign Press!
In a recent interview, Amy Poehler commented on the recent news of her being named a returning co-host of the Golden Globes for the next two years with her bestie Tina Fey, as well as the importance of winning:
"We had such a fun time doing the Globes, and it’s been nice to be able to go to those shows in general, to be asked and invited. I’ve been to a lot of them now, and when you don’t win it’s really a funny, fun lesson. Because who cares about winning? Really, honestly. But it’s also a good reminder of how it’s really just fun to get to be there. During commercial breaks they often play clips of old award shows to keep the room warm, and I was always impressed and reminded of how fun and how loose it used to be. Certainly there was competition, but it wasn’t like this weird pressure back then. So we try to take the pressure out of it honestly, selfishly just for ourselves so we can try to enjoy ourselves better. So if people like it, that’s cool."
We know that Leslie Knope eventually wants to build a new park from scratch, eventually become president, and to one day solve a murder on a train, but we hope that Amy Poehler wins a Golden Globe, an Emmy, and, uh, solves a murder on a train.
All in all, Amy's right though! It's not about winning, it's about the fun of being apart of an awards ceremony…and getting paid 4 million dollars to host the show! CHA-CHING!
We can't to see the HIGHlarity you and Tina bring this year! Bring it, ladiez!
