17 'Parks And Recreation' Gifs That Are Better Than A Golden Globe & Will Ease The Sting Of That Snub

Not only did fans of NBC's Parks And Recreation have to suffer through the emotional despair of watching the show's final season earlier this year, but now we have also been forced to suffer the indignity of watching our favorite comedy be completely snubbed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association... again. Over its seven year run on NBC, the workplace sitcom has only managed to procure three nominations for Best Comedy Series and one nomination for its star, Amy Poehler (which she miraculously won two years ago). But for its critically-acclaimed final season? Nada. Zilch. Bupkis. The Golden Globes failed to nominate Parks And Recreation in a single category.

As great as Poehler is as Leslie Knope, Parks And Rec is at heart an ensemble show, and it's shocking that none of the rest of the cast ever got the recognition they deserved. But you know what's better than a Golden Globe? Hilarious gifs. What are you gonna do with a useless trophy, anyway? It's just gonna sit on a shelf and collect dust — whereas gifs are super useful in everyday life. Sure, a Golden Globe may be worth approximately $14.2 million, but a picture is worth a thousand words... which means a gif is worth, like, ten thousand words, at least.

Here are 17 gifs to make you feel better about Parks & Rec's egregious snub.
