Huzzahs for All!

Too many things are awesome to be specific.
Tina: It’s a real honor to be with these ladies this year. I think it’s a very strong group. We now have Julia Louis-Dreyfus back on a series. I think Amy is kinda overdue - I would love to see her win. Actually, is that bad? This is supposed to be my campaign. [x]

“Not only is she not afraid to look silly, she’s not afraid to let you throw her in the air like a baseball and catch her.” - Tina Fey on Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler was new to SNL and we were all crowded into the seventeenth-floor writers’ room, waiting for the Wednesday read-through to start. There were always a lot of noisy “comedy bits” going on in that room. Amy was in the middle of some such nonsense with Seth Meyers across the table, and she did something vulgar as a joke. I can’t remember what it was exactly, except it was dirty and loud and “unladylike.”

Jimmy Fallon, who was arguably the star of the show at the time, turned to her and in a faux-squeamish voice said, “Stop that! It’s not cute! I don’t like it.”

Amy dropped what she was doing, went black in the eyes for a second, and wheeled around on him. “I don’t fucking care if you like it.” Jimmy was visibly startled. Amy went right back to enjoying her ridiculous bit. (I should make it clear that Jimmy and Amy are very good friends and there was never any real beef between them. Insert penis joke here.)

With that exchange, a cosmic shift took place. Amy made it clear that she wasn’t there to be cute. She wasn’t there to play wives and girlfriends in the boys’ scenes. She was there to do what she wanted to do and she did not fucking care if you liked it.

Meet me, and then we can run off and meet no one else.
