Golden Globes 2014: Screengrab recap

I took way too many photos of my TV screen during the Golden Globes. Some of them made the cut. (Who can say what “some” means, really?) Join me in a visual adventure through Tina and Amy’s gladiating, Martin Scorsese’s unbridled enthusiasm at a vagina joke, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ gluttony, and more: READ FULL STORY

Did Tina Fey burn Taylor Swift at the Golden Globes?

Was she just being “Mean”? (No.)

After Amy Poehler finally won a Golden Globe for her work on Parks and Recreation, Tina Fey happily said to her friend and co-host, “I love you, and there’s a special place in hell for you!”

Hilarious…and also some not-so-subtle shade-throwing on an in-the-room Taylor Swift? Swift famously got upset last year at the Golden Globes when Poehler and Fey made a silly joke at her expense, telling her to “stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.”

Later, when Swift was on the cover of Vanity Fair, she spoke about the incident, saying,”You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’” (The quote is originally attributed to Madeleine Albright.)

Now, the ‘hell’ quote seems to be thrown back at her. Pity the cameraperson didn’t cut away for a reaction shot. READ FULL STORY

Tina and Amy's best Golden Globes jokes: Read 'em here! VIDEO

Live, from Beverly Hills, it’s the 71st Annual Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Lee Daniels’ The Butler Golden Globe Awards! And as you can see from the previous sentence, hosts Fey and Poehler are already proving why bringing them back to host was the best idea NBC’s had since the mid-’00s. Here are a few funny highlights; check back for an updated list of jokes as the night progresses.

Amy: “Congratulations to all the wonderful actors nominated tonight, from the amazing Chiwetel Ejiofer, to the stunning Lupita Nyong’o, to American treasure Tam Honks. …Damnit, I knew I was going to screw that up.” [Camera pans to Tom Hanks]

Amy: “Matt Damon is here for Behind the Candelabra. Matt, on any other night in another room, you would be a big deal. But tonight, and don’t take this the wrong way, you’re basically a garbage person.”

Golden Globes: Play our drinking game!

Will Jennifer Lawrence make a charming speech? Will Amy Poehler crack you up? Will Ricky Gervais drunk-rush the stage, demanding what he sees as rightfully his?

It’s anyone’s guess what will go down tonight during the Golden Globes, often noted by the attendees as the most fun and laid-back awards show of the year. After all, this is the one — according to Amy Poehler’s monologue from last year’s ceremony — “Where the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people from TV.”

Since you won’t be heading to the Globes this year, PopWatch has broken down all the likely phrases and jokes you’ll be hearing when your favorite ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take to the Globes stage tonight at 8 p.m. ET. Obviously, PopWatch cautions you to celebrate responsibly. Pace yourself; this whole show is — oh my God, it’s three hours long, and that’s not including any pre-carpet gown judging you partake in.

'Parks & Rec' 100th episode react: Leslie decides on next step with help from special guest star

An unexpectedly emotional 30 minutes of Parks and Recreation found the show grappling with what the next step would be for all of its major characters. For some, like parents-to-be Ann and Chris, the answer was sweet and obvious: They’re having a baby boy! For others, like Tom, the show set the groundwork for him to move in a different, perfectly right direction in his new, self-created position as business liaison for the Parks department. And for others, like Ben and Leslie, the next step isn’t quite so clear yet — but that’s okay, too. Jennifer Barkley even said so!

It was the 100th episode of the show Thursday, and it was a welcome and long-awaited return for our favorite public servants. Parks picked up with Leslie’s last day as City Councilor, and she was coping well with having to give up her life-long dream job. Just kidding! She was, of course, a wreck, but managed to put on a brave face while showing  Ingrid de Forest (Kristen Bell) around. The two even managed to do a split-second duet before Leslie realized she really doesn’t need to feel worse about herself today. (Cross-promotion missed opportunity: Bell could have sung a little Frozen!) READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Rec' celebrates 100 episodes with hilarious look back -- VIDEO

The wait is finally over.

Parks and Rec returns this week with its 100th episode. In celebration, the show has released a 20-minute (!) look back, featuring interviews with the entire cast reminiscing about their favorite lines, moments, and episodes.

Things we learned: Amy Poehler’s favorite scene is when the whole gang falls on the ice in “Comeback Kid,” Nick Offerman has a particular fondness for his first scene with real-life wife Megan Mullally, the cameraman hates Jerry just as much as all the Parks employees, and Aubrey Plaza is even more like April than we thought.

Treat yo’ self and watch the whole thing — including an intro song and dance by Perd Hapley — below: READ FULL STORY

Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner attack people with holiday cheer on the street -- VIDEO

If a stranger offered you a dollar to sing with them, would you do it?

Well, what if it was comedian Billy Eichner and EW guest editor and Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler screaming at you on the streets of New York to join in and finish the lyrics to some classic Christmas carols? You’d be surprised by how many people would say no. Gearing up for a brand-new season of the Fuse show Billy on the Street, Eichner and Poehler donned their gay apparel and hit the Big Apple streets. The results are both hilarious and, if you happen to name your baby after a CW show, heartbreaking.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reveal 'Star Wars VII' roles; J.J. Abrams responds

Things seem to be going pretty well these days for Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. They are about to host the Golden Globes for the second year in a row, they’re both producing multiple shows for multiple networks, and they’re serving as guest editors of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. But what people really want to know is: When will these Saturday Night Live/Baby Mama co-stars find a way to join forces for another TV show or movie?

During our Q&A with the pair for this special issue, the 30 Rock creator/actress and Parks and Recreation star declared their desire to star together in a drama. And we mean together. “We want to play Siamese twin judges on a law procedural,” says Fey. “Our condition does not get in the way of our judgment,” adds Poehler. “And that’s what the show’s about: Even though we’re bound together, we’re not bound to each other’s ideals.” Fey agrees: “One of us is very conservative and the other is a recovering alcoholic, so it makes for great drama.”

But it was a high-profile project on the big screen that truly lit up their faces, as Fey and Poehler revealed that they have scored roles in the new Star Wars film as… Darth Vader’s mothers.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler tackle 2013's biggest pop culture topics, make bold predictions for 2014

This week’s issue of EW is going to feature a lot of T & A.

That’s Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, you sickos. The two women, who will host the Golden Globes next month for the second year in a row, accepted a one-week job to become guest editors of EW. What does that mean, you ask? It means they wrote the Must List and Bullseye, assigned several stories and ran down the hallway screaming things like, “Orphan Black is the new Orange is the New Black!” and “Change all fonts to Comic Sans at once!” Of course, if you’re going to run a national entertainment magazine, you need to have a stunning command of the pop culture landscape. Which is why we asked the pair for their thoughts on how to cover some of 2013′s biggest pop culture topics. READ FULL STORY

This week's cover: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take over EW!

You know Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as extremely funny actors-writers-producers-hosts. But these longtime friends are adding another hyphen to their names this week: Guest editors.

After Entertainment Weekly put them in charge of this week’s issue (Thanks for the 30 percent raises, Tina and Amy! That wasn’t a joke, right?), Fey and Poehler assigned several stories, including one in which Mad Men‘s leading man Jon Hamm interviewed Ellie Kemper, who will star in a new NBC comedy that Fey is executive producing. (As it turns out, Hamm was Kemper’s acting teacher back in St. Louis.) There’s also a feature on the upcoming Comedy Central series Broad City, which stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, and is exec produced by Poehler. The pair — who will team up next month to emcee the Golden Globes again — even penned the Must List and Bullseye. And Fey and Poehler clearly took the job very seriously, as you can see from their opening letter to readers: “If you are reading this ‘Letter From the Guest Editors,’ it probably means you have read all the other parts of the magazine at least five times and are in some kind of isolated and desperate situation. If it’s a bathroom emergency, try elevating your feet on an upturned wastebasket. If you are in the trunk of a drug lord’s car, try doing that thing Walter White does where he throws chemicals at the ground and they explode.”
