It's almost time for another big award show, and you know what that means: I feel alive again. The Emmys are this Sunday, which gives us a nice opportunity to elevate one deserving nominee to the high, feathered echelons of gay iconography. I'm going with Amy Poehler, the fab star of Parks and Recreation who's both goofy and deadpan, and always, always, always smart. Here are five reasons her mural should hang in every WeHo Starbucks.
1. She was absolutely hilarious as a Trevor Live emcee.
Just last year, Poehler hosted Trevor Live, the Trevor Project's annual fundraiser, and riveted the crowd with her running commentary. She told presenters Zachary Quinto and Amber Heard, "God would have sex with both of you." Following Jc Chasez's rendition of "True Colors," she remarked, "God just cried. God isn't made of wood, people." Like all great comedians, Poehler recognizes the seriousness of tough issues like bullying and Lgbt discrimination, »
That noise you just heard was gazillions of fans (including all of us at Zap2it) shouting "Noooo!"
The rumors are true -- "Parks and Recreation" star Amy Poehler and her longtime love, "Arrested Development's" Will Arnett, are splitting after 9 years together. Us Weekly reports that the split is "amicable."
The couple married on August 29, 2003, and have two sons -- three-year-old Archie and two-year-old Abel. In addition to their separate credits, the TV stars have appeared together on in "Blades of Glory," "Horton Hears a Who!" "Spring Breakdown," and more. Arnett also guest starred on "Parks and Rec," as did Poehler on "Arrested Development."
Arnett and Poehler are both likely to appear at the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 23. Poehler is nominated for lead comedy actress and in the comedy writing category for "Parks and Rec." Arnett's role in "30 Rock" earned him a nomination for the outstanding comedy guest actor award. »
We scour the interwebs for the coolest movie news and more so you don't have to ...
When it comes to movies about spring break, the one that seems to be the consensus favorite is … well, there isn’t one. Hollywood.com parties hearty with the best of the worst, from "Spring Breakdown" to, uh, "The Hitcher."
Are you more of a fan of Megamind … or Mugatu? Stay classy and vote for your favorite Will Ferrell character in Moviefone's Will Ferrell Tournament, which pits the many personifications of the "Casa de mi Padre" star against each other in an existential battle to the death.
What was it like bringing music to the tale of three super-powered teenagers? MTV Hive talks with Andrea Von Foerster, music supervisor of "Chronicle," who says the biggest misconception about her job is that she just sits around and listens to music all day.

Time for our Monday Monologue...
Missi, Uggie and Jean DujardinOne of the unexpected joys of this year's edition of Endless Awards Season has been the presence of the very funny, very talented Missi Pyle. She's kind of blink and you'll miss her as "Constance" the 'Lina Lamont' silent star archetype in The Artist. But she's been everywhere at the events. That's oddly appropriate given that she always seems to be blink and you'll miss her in movies but she makes the best of it. Often when I see her in that big ball of joy that is the cast and crew of The Artist (winning makes the joy part a lot easier) I think back to my favorite moment in her filmography to date.
She was the comedy Mvp of the oft-delayed and then underseen and weirdly trashed Spring Breakdown (2009) which is much funnier than it gets credit for. Her »

Awards season is truly upon us. The red carpets are unfurled and waiting for the glitterati to trample them. Tomorrow night is the Golden Globes (we'll be here live-blogging it old' style if you'd like to join us!) but for now one last look back at the Critics Choice Awards held Thursday night. For this edition of Red Carpet Convos I've invited Joanna Robinson from Pajiba to join me. Joanna is a longtime reader of The Film Experience (she even won a contest once years ago!) and a delightful person, too.
Nathaniel: Hey Joanna. Welcome. Let's start with the pastel field and uh... Happy Easter!?!
Olsen, Pyle, Woodley, Miller, and Kruger Joanna: As faberge as Elizabeth Olsen looks, I think she looks better than her "fashion plate" sisters have looked in years. Nathaniel: Give her time. If the Olsens practice hand-me-down fashions she's in trouble. Joanna: I see burlap sacks in your future, »
