Birthday Girl: Amy Poehler

The beautiful and generally kick-ass Amy Poehler celebrates her 40th birthday today. This weekend, she'll no doubt be walking down the red carpet with husband Will Arnett at the Emmy Awards where she's nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy Series alongside best friend Tina Fey. She'll probably lose to Laura Linney, because they like their comedy dark and edgy preferably given by a movie star. Do I need I remind the TV Academy that Poehler too is a movie star? Remember how she played the "cool mom" in Mean Girls or how about her breakout role as Susie in the cult classic Wet Hot American Summer?

But hey even if she loses, her fantastic show Parks & Recreation starts its 4th season in less than a week! That pretty much means that everyone wins! Happy Birthday Amy!


  1. I still find it weird imagining Leslie Knope as Regina's mom. Poehler is fantastic. FANTASTIC!!!!!!

  2. No arguments here. She'll always be the cool mom. So jealous of her kids.


Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
