Speaking of baffling, it’s almost fascinating that the charming and insanely talented Poehler cannot catch a break -- in her case, over multiple eras. She was nominated twice for her work on "Saturday Night Live," thrice for acting in "Parks and Recreation," once for writing for "Parks," and even received two Daytime Emmy nods for voiceover work on "The Mighty B!." Nothing. All of her talent is on display as Leslie Knope in "Parks." When the show started, she was being asked to do a Michael Scott impression, and she has slowly but swiftly brought heart to one of the most stubborn characters on television. Poehler is on fire; she and Tina Fey destroyed at this year’s Golden Globes telecast as its hosts. A loss to Fey for the final season of "30 Rock" might be inevitable, but given Knope flawlessly navigated a wedding and a new job, this could be the year Emmy voters finally recognize how pivotal Poehler is to television.
