Amy Poehler started her onscreen career on Saturday Night Live in 2001. By 2004, she was co-hosting SNL’s Weekend Update with Tina Fey, and killing it! In 2009, Amy started playing Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, which we were sad to say goodbye to earlier this week.

After being nominated for several awards, finally in 2014 she won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Musical or Comedy Series for her role as Leslie. Amy and close friend Tina Fey have hosted the Golden Globe Awards ceremony for the past three years, with each year topping the last.

Amy’s witty book Yes Please was released in October and has remained on several best seller lists since then, for good reason! We just love this lady – can’t wait to see what she takes on next!
