Cheers To You… Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler

Congratulations to Amy Poehler on winning her first Golden Globe!

Amy, who co-hosted the 71st annual Golden Globes award ceremony with her partner-in-comedic-crime Tina Fey, won Best Actress in a Television Series (Comedy) for her portrayal of Leslie Knope on NBC’s Parks & Recreation (which was nominated for Best Television Series (Comedy) for the first time this year). It was due time for the funniest lady on television today to receive the recognition she has so long deserved! In a tv-landscape filled with a lot of aggression and negativity, we need heartwarming programs like Parks and lovable characters like the eternally optimistic Leslie Knope to remind us of the good in the world.

The following is one of my favourite Leslie Knope quotations:

In times of stress or moments of transition, sometimes it can feel like the whole world is closing in on you. When that happens, you should close your eyes, take a deep breath, listen to the people that love you when they give you advice, and remember what really matters. And if you have the ability to go to Paris, by all means, go to Paris.”

Cheers to Amy Poehler, Leslie Knope, and Parks & Recreation for this victorious victory!
