Leslie Knope would be proud! Amy Poehler has been nominated for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series for the final season of Parks & Recreation. This is her last shot at winning for the iconic role, so here's hoping the Emmys don't mess it up! It should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that Amy Poehler has been nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series every year since Park and Recreation's breakthrough second season.
For her legendary role as Leslie Knope, she won the Golden Globe in 2014, one of the years that she also hosted. Poehler is now synonymous with television comedy — having starred on Saturday Night Live, and spearheading one of the best sitcoms of the 21st century. While she has a Golden Globe, it would be a shame if her brilliant and hilarious performance of the Leslie we know and love never got the celebration of the Emmys it deserved.
Amy deserves an Emmy as a reward for fifteen years of brilliant performances on television and an Emmy in 2015 would honor all the accumulated work she has done. The end of Parks and Rec marked an end of the era of the great, traditional NBC sitcom, and the Emmys can honor the show by honoring her performance.
