I remember thinking that Will Arnett and Amy Poehler were the perfect comedy couple, and I was genuinely shocked when they announced their split back in 2012. Now it’s ten years later, and Will is finally talking publicly about their “brutal, brutal, brutal” divorce in a new interview with The Guardian to promote his new show Murderville. Was it more brutal than Show Dogs because if that’s the case, that is brutal3. Continue reading
At Last Night’s Golden Globes, Amy Poehler And Tina Fey Managed To Roast The HFPA Together From Separate Coasts
Long-time besties, comedic duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, hosted the 2021 Golden Globes last night and it was a different show than usual in the sense that they were hosting separately from different locations and their audience was filled with first responders instead of the Hollywood glitterati. But some things remained from your usual non-coronavirus awards show. Like roasting the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the nominees who may or may not have bought off their votes with fancy trips to Paris.
It’s official – Ricky Gervais really won’t be back next year to host the Golden Globes. But that doesn’t mean celebrity egos will get any less of a break. Variety says that creep-dragging icons Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been announced as the hosts of the 2021 Golden Globe awards. Those poor Oscars. They can’t even get one host, and here’s the Golden Globes bragging that they already have two lined up for a ceremony that’s a whole year away.
All the way up until this point I was expecting nothing but bad things from this year’s Oscars because there was no host lined up and the last time the Oscars went host-less it was an utter disaster. So, of course, I was prepared to drink and laugh all night at their epic failure because I’m a hater. But I was pleasantly surprised by how much better the show was without a host, and the ratings were up! However, since everything kicked off with the Holy Trinity of Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey and Amy Poelher I believe they somehow blessed the show with their monologue by doing just enough to entertain everyone and then getting the hell off of the stage before boredom took its seat in the front row.
Perpetually perky blonde Amy Poehler landed herself on The Hollywood Reporter’s “The 40(ish) Most Powerful People in Comedy” list under the category “The Movie Stars”. For her segment, they asked Amy a list of dumb fluff questions; the kind you might find in a dozen different magazines you leaf through while waiting in line at the checkout stand. Amy answered all the questions, but she did it on her terms. It turns out Amy’s turned her smile all the way upside down and is not here for the bullshit, not in #thesetryingtimes.
Amy Poehler’s directorial debut will be in a Netflix comedy which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is about a group of “longtime friends who go to Napa for a weekend getaway to celebrate a 50th birthday“ and for some reason it’s not called White Girls (And Maya Rudolph) Trip. Seems like a missed opportunity to me but they’re going with Wine Country as the title. In addition to directing, Amy will also be producing and is cramming as many of her lady comedy cohorts into the cast as she can.
