Tina Fey (left) and Amy Poehler (right)
Comedian Amy Poehler broke new ground last night at the Emmys ceremony and I hope you saw it!

I loved watching as the nominees for lead actress in a comedy series were read.  Amy’s name was first and she immediately jumped out of her chair, ran to the stage and then stayed there.  Nobody knew what she was doing but they knew it was going to be funny.

Then as the rest of the category’s nominee’s names were read — Tina Fey, Martha Plimpton, Melissa McCarthy, Edie Falco and Laura Linney — each one also ran up on the stage and joined Poehler.
Holding hands and looking at each other nervously as they waited for the winner’s name to be announced, people were laughing and clapping before they knew who had won.  Melissa McCarthy won and it was a riot.
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are always the best!!! My son reminded me about the hysterical Saturday Night Live sketch they did on Hillary Clinton.  Maybe a good laugh will make your Monday a little more tolerable…or at least smile as you face a new week.  Here’s the Hillary Clinton clip:
