My overwhelming thought following tonight’s rippling terrain of pricey Super Bowl commercials was that Doritos missed a great cross-promotional opportunity by not joining forces with Calvin Klein. There’s always next year. Below, zip through a bunch of 2013′s most memorable — best AND worst! — Super Bowl ads. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Amy Poehler (31-40 of 72)
Ricky Gervais may be the one that got all the feigned gasps with his celebrity-ribbing monologues the past couple years, but gal pals and partners in prime-time Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had more than a little bite in their Golden Globes opening. Starting off with a guaranteed-to-be-accurate subject—making fun of the assembled celebrities’ inevitable intoxication, saying “You can smell the pills from here”—they then gave a sarcastic nod to their predecessor before moving on down the list of all the famous faces in the crowd just waiting for someone to cut to them. Here are some of the highlights and check back for their jokes throughout the night:
You’ve predicted the winners in the movie and TV categories, and now it’s time to see if you were right. Tonight, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the Golden Globes (NBC, 8 p.m. ET).

Golden Globe hosts Poehler, Fey talk boobs, cheerleaders, ‘Argo’ on pre-Awards call
Can anything get in the way of Lincoln‘s momentum? Could Smash possibly upset the Best TV Show — Comedy or Musical category? Who cares! The real reason to watch the Golden Globes this Sunday is to see three glorious hours of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing what they do best: Hanging out together and making us laugh.
Ever since meeting in an improv class nearly 20 years ago — back when Tina “had only recently learned that you can pluck your eyebrows” and Amy got $15 dye jobs that made her hair “the color of white lined paper” — Pohler and Fey have enjoyed a best-friendship that’s the envy of non-Tinas and Amys everywhere. (2012′s Night of Too Many Stars even auctioned off the chance to be the pair’s third BFF for the night; the winner, predictably, had an amazing time.) Naturally, the pair frequently work together onscreen — proving that as funny as they are individually, Amy and Tina are better together.
So here’s a chronological list of their greatest clips — starting with one of SNL‘s best commercial parodies: READ FULL STORY
As if we needed further proof that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the best at everything and should always be talking on our TVs always always. The upcoming hosts of the 70th Annual Golden Globe awards took the time out of their day being witty whilst wearing gorgeous gowns to discuss their impending job, photobombing Harrison Ford, hating everyone, and who they think will win the award for “Best Actress in a mini-musical or major documentary.” (It’s a shocker!)

On the same day as the NRA’s press conference and a week after the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Conn., celebrities are coming together with a simple message: “Enough.” In a new PSA, Elizabeth Banks, Jason Bateman, Will Ferrell, Selena Gomez, Peter Dinklage, Conan O’Brien, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Reese Witherspoon and 44 more lent their voices for a Mayors Against Illegal Guns PSA that speaks about the need for a new plan regarding guns.
“How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more move theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners? Enough. Demand a plan right now,” the PSA declares.

Leave it to Eagleton to stir up the crazy in Leslie Knope.
Last night’s episode of Parks and Recreation rekindled the “blood feud” between Pawnee and neighboring Eagleton when an Eagletonian architect offered to design Pawnee’s new park. The guy’s nice as can be and extremely well-qualified, but Leslie’s knee-jerk derision threatens to thwart the whole plan — which happens to be pro bono. The situation further deteriorates when a couple of pranksters from Eagleton make a mockery of Pawnee’s citizens. As you can imagine, Leslie’s vitriol makes for some of the more memorable moments.
“In 1984 a tornado struck Pawnee. When we asked Eagleton for help they claimed they weren’t home. An entire town claimed they weren’t home.”
–Leslie (Amy Poehler) on Parks and Recreation

I never thought of Nick Offerman as the game-show host type. (Rob Lowe, on the other hand…)
Yet it’s the mock-serious Offerman, in full Ron Swanson mode, channeling Hollywood Squares greats Peter Marshall and Tom Bergeron by hosting a version of the game for GQ‘s Men of the Year issue. Instead of keeping to the traditional format and asking true/false or multiple choice questions, Offerman challenged his cast with straight-foward pop-culture trivia.

Last week’s episode of Parks and Recreation, in which Ben finally proposed to Leslie, set the bar pretty high — some might say impossibly high — so last night the writers stepped up and let loose with some top-shelf material. We met Ben’s sparring, divorced, insufferable parents (played by Glenne Headly and Jonathan Banks) and watched Chris have a total, happy-sad mental breakdown (“It’s like a perfect storm of emotions!”). The team even brought back the scene-stealer (and arguably the show’s most consistently funny character) Jean-Ralphio, Tom’s flamboyant cad of a business partner. With so many memorable moments, it’s hard to narrow down the episode’s highlights… but here goes.
