Amy Poehler Is Still Adorably Shocked By Her Golden Globe Win
One of the best reactions to winning a Golden Globe award last night came from none other than the event's co-host Amy Poehler herself, who took home a coveted statue for her role as Leslie Knope in Parks & Recreation — her first win at the show, ever. Her reaction was, to say the least, that of complete and utter shock: As she said in her acceptance speech, "I was not prepared for this...I never win, so I can't believe I won!" After the event (and making out with U2 frontman Bono on camera), Amy Poehler spoke a bit more about hosting the show and winning her first Golden Globe:
"I think I'm 0 for 13 in these awards shows, so I was very, very, very surprised to win and very excited," Poehler told E! Online of her award. As for hosting the Globes for a second time, Poehler explained that she and co-host/best friend in the whole wide world Tina Fey were still nervous about hosting the show, though it was their second time doing it: "We wanted to do well and not have a sophomore slump. And also we kind of knew how it went, so...anytime I do anything with Tina, it feels really familial, and comfortable. It was really exciting. I got to make out with Bono, so that's not bad."
The moment, of course, that she's referring to is that of when she fake-made out with U2's Bono after her name was announced as winner of best actress in a comedy series.
It was one of the better moments of the night to mostly everyone...except Poehler's real-life boyfriend, The League star Nick Kroll. After the show, Kroll jokingly tweeted out a hilarious warning to Bono:
They should battle in a sing-off competition, probably.
