Amy Poehler Will Not Suffer Fools

Amy Poehler
As a part of the lead-up to Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosting the Golden Globes this Sunday, the two were interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter. The two were, as always, very funny, but Poehler in particular had no time for some of the interviewer's cheap questions. These are her bossest answers:

On the worst joke she's been pitched for the show:

"You think I'm going to tell you a bad idea for a joke? You're f---ing crazy. No!"
On whether the two had considered doing the Golden Globes as a musical, in light of The Sound of Music Live's success:
"OK, I see what you're doing, you're going to set up jokes. I'm not falling for that. I didn't say any of that. I've worked at NBC for 12 years so I'm happy they had a successful night of TV."
On whether she'd wear Amy Adams' plunging blouse from American Hustle on the show:
"Oh eww, I don't want to even answer this question. Pass. Next."
When asked what she thought about Seth MacFarlane's boobs song from last years Oscars:
"It's so hard to host. I don't want to comment on anybody else's performance. Why would you think that we would say anything about anybody's performance if we're getting ready to do our own? It's a hard to job to host anything. Period."
On the criticism of SNL's lack of diversity:
"Ugh, I don't want to talk about this. Pass."
On whether or not they'd do a new drinking game for this year's ceremony:
"So now I'm just writing a joke for you that I might want to use for the show. How about this for a drinking game? Every time I drink, everybody at home should drink."
The whole thing is sort of reminiscent of the "don't use the props" scene from 30 Rock. This serves as yet another reminder that Amy Poehler is the coolest lady around.
