TV's reigning Power Couple of Funny has presented at previous awards shows both as individuals and as a pair and in either combination they've been hilarious. Poehler and Arnett are versatile comics with improv backgrounds, setting them up to handle the twists and turns of Oscar night and although neither is a movie star, per se, both have appeared in enough movies that they aren't going to feel like total interlopers. And yet if ABC didn't want Fallon, the star of *one* NBC show, there's absolutely zero chance that ABC will want a combination of two stars of *two* NBC shows. Of course, the possibility exists that both "Parks and Rec" and "Up All Night" could be done by spring, but that's not something we would like to root for.
