TwitterFacebook

Emma Thompson hosted Saturday Night Live’s Mother’s Day episode on May 11, and fellow moms Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made a cameo to help her explain “mom speak.”

“Sometimes it can be hard to decipher what our mothers are, in fact, saying,” Thompson explained. “They do speak in code.”

If your mom says she just wants to “relax in the backyard” this Mother’s Day? She wants to smoke weed. If she says you look tired? She thinks you look bad. And when she announces she’s heading off to book…

Netflix’s ‘Wine Country’ relies on a stellar cast to tell a formulaic story

TwitterFacebook

In her directorial debut Wine Country, Amy Poehler gathers some of her talented Saturday Night Live buddies to conjure up a fun movie set in Napa Valley. The entire cast is a goldmine of comedy — Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch, Paula Pell, Emily Spivey (who co-wrote the script), and even Tina Fey shows up from time to time. 

You’d expect a film with these ladies to be cackling with humor and heart but sadly, Wine Country falls short of both to quite an extent.

Want to hear a sentence that’ll make you feel old? It’s been 10 years since Parks and Recreation first graced our TV screens. 

And what a lovely decade it’s been. To mark the occasion, our favourite Pawnee residents Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson posted a very sweet video message thanking fans for their support. 

“Citizens of Pawnee, thank you for spending 10 years of your life with us, sharing your laughter, your…

Amy Poehler would be totally up for a ‘Parks and Recreation’ revival

TwitterFacebook

We may now know the reason why a Parks and Recreation revival is yet to happen — and the issue doesn’t appear to be the willingness of certain cast members.

The problem may be that the show’s co-creator Mike Schur is just too damn busy.

“Mike Schur is currently working on about five shows,” Amy Poehler (aka Leslie Knope), told Variety on the carpet for Thursday night’s Parks and Recreation 10th anniversary reunion event. 

The good…

Your faves Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, and Amy Poehler sang ‘Shallow’ and Lady Gaga loved it

TwitterFacebook

The very first musical performance of Oscars night was from Queen, but the second came from Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler.

The SNL vets belted out a few lines from “Shallow” while gearing up to present the first award of the night, Best Supporting Actress (which Regina King won for If Beale Street Could Talk). And Lady Gaga herself seems to have been a fan, laughing along in the audience.

In their time on stage, the trio also skewered this year’s tumultuous lead-up to the Oscars,…

Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers buddy up again to skewer a mouthy James Comey

TwitterFacebook

Former SNL Weekend Update pals Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers reunited on Wednesday to take on another target: The ever-talkative James Comey.

Poehler and Meyers teamed up for a segment called “Really!?!” on Late Night, unpacking the former FBI director’s tweet pleading the Democrats to not “lose their minds and rush to the socialist left.”

“I don’t know if you remember but we were just about to have a nice, boring, moderate Democrat for a president, until you decided to open your mouth a…
