As the nominees for comedy lead actress were announced, nominee Amy Poehler raced to the stage, to the surprise of presenters Sofia Vergara and Rob Lowe, and the delight of the audience (in the theater and at home). She was quickly followed by the other nominees in a marvelous parody of various awards ceremonies - the idea was Poehler’s, which she hatched over dinner with fellow nominee Martha Plimpton last week - and even ended with the winner getting a tiara and bouquet of roses. Unfortunately, that winner wasn’t Poehler (the funniest performer in the category), but Melissa McCarthy from “Mike & Molly.” (I could deal with Poehler losing to either of the Showtime actresses, who get to show much more dramatic range than her, or to Tina Fey, who was also hilarious in her own submission, but no way should Poehler’s performance in the “Flu Season” episode of “Parks and Recreation” have lost to anyone else.)
