Amy Poehler has one golden rule for the Oscars.
“If any of us fall, the other ones have to go down, too,” she cracked at rehearsals Saturday, practicing her presenting moment alongside pals Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph. All three women had not
fallingon their mind: Each paired jeans with what appeared to be the heels they’ll be wearing at the 91st annual Academy Awards (ABC, Sunday, 8 ET/PT) and practiced walking across the Dolby Theatre stage.
Before a room of seat placards, producers and Academy staffers, Fey read off her first line. “Good evening, and welcome to the one millionth Academy Awards!” Fey said at the microphone to laughter, segueing straight into a joke about how there’s no host this year. (Oh, and she delivers a USA TODAY joke you don’t want to miss.)

“If I fall in my dress, just leave me for dead,” Tina Fey deadpanned to Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph as the buddy-trio walked toward center stage to rehearse lines they’ll deliver as presenters during Sunday’s 91st Academy Awards. “Or you can just drag me.”
No can do, responded Poehler: “If any of us fall, the other ones have to go down, too.”
“There’s Gaga!…Where’s Bradley?” said Poehler, after spotting Lady Gaga’s photo on one of the dozens of cardboard placards emblazoned with celebrity head-shots that pepper the near-empty orchestra as seat-holders. “Dana Carvey!” Poehler said excitedly, noticing her former Saturday Night Live costar’s photo affixed to another. “There’s Angela Bassett…Glenn…”Source: People

To celebrate Galentine’s Day, the Parks and Recreation official YouTube channel
It’s Galentine’s Day today! To celebrate it, LAist interviewed Parks and Rec writers/creator Mike Schur, Emma Fletcher and Amy! They talked about the origin of Galentine’s Day, the friendships on the show and how the holiday started being celebrated in real life by real friends! You can read the entire interview
Happy Galentine’s Day! What’s Galentine Day? On Feb. 13 — the day before Valentine’s Day — ladies come together to celebrate their best gals. For the non-Pawneeans out there, the holiday was inspired by the character Leslie Knope on the TV show Parks and Recreation.
LAist interviewed actress/producer Amy Poehler, show co-creator Mike Schur, and writer Emma Fletcher about the legacy of the holiday 10 years later, the legacy of the show itself, and the power of friendship.
GALENTINE’S DAY: THE ORIGIN STORY
Mike Schur co-created Parks and Recreation with Greg Daniels, who also created the U.S. version of The Office. Galentine’s Day began in an episode of the same name during the second season of the show, its first full-length season.
Mike Schur: The idea came about because the show was always pitched as a show about female friendship — the pilot was about Leslie and Ann meeting for the first time and becoming friends.
Amy Poehler: [Playing Leslie Knope] was, and continues to be, a wonderful experience. My job consisted of playing a woman who doesn’t give up, who dreams big, and who constantly tells the people around her that she loves and supports them. It was very good for my mental health. We all need someone like Leslie cheering us on.
