'Parks and Recreation' star Amy Poehler stars in hilarious new Old Navy commercials -- VIDEO

It’s safe to say that comic genius Amy Poehler has made almost everything under the sun seem cool, from waffles to government to world news. So it comes as no surprise that in her latest gig, headlining a series of Old Navy commercials, Poehler is making something as mundane as pants downright awesome — and hilarious.

We’ve only seen one of these commercials so far, but judging from the 30 second spot below — where Poehler obsesses over a potential employee’s pants during a job interview — it’s safe to say we can expect to laugh a lot more as the rest of these spots unveil themselves. And if that’s not enough, there’s also an outtake video that showcases the Parks and Recreation star at her best, causing us to realize that if we ever had to be in her presence we would probably be ruining take after take. (Notable gem: “Would it be weird if I bought the same ones? And we wore them on the same day? And we went to the beach together? Don’t answer that question.”)

Come on, admit it — now you wish there was an episode where Leslie makes Ann try on all sorts of Old Navy pants and gives her BFF opinion on them. (Maybe she’ll just go to Ann’s house and make her new baby try on clothes from the Old Navy kids line instead.)

Check out both the commercial spot and outtakes below: READ FULL STORY

Who will be the best dressed TV actress at the Golden Globes? POLL

EW’s Melissa Maerz and Jeff Jensen have shared their predictions for the Golden Globes TV categories, but who will win the red carpet?

To narrow down the field I chose five of the most consistently stylish nominees.

Best supporting actress nominee Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) always (always, always) brings the sex appeal, so it’s safe to assume that she’ll wear something sequined that shows off her curves. Nominated for her role in a made-for-TV movie, 68-year-old Helen Mirren (Phil Spector) gives younger stars a run for their money on the red carpet. What if best actress nominee Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and her co-host Tina Fey tie for best dressed? As for best actress nominee Kerry Washington (Scandal) … I mean, come on, she’s Kerry Washington, of course she’ll look amazing. Zooey Deschanel’s (New Girl) hit-or-miss style makes her one of tonight’s red carpet wild card contenders.

Who will be the best dressed TV actress at the Golden Globes? Cast your vote after the jump. Did I leave someone off the shortlist? Head down to the comments to submit your write-in vote. READ FULL STORY

Mindy Kaling's 'Elle' cover: Where's her body?

One of these things is not like the other.

Elle has released four covers for the February “Women in Television” issue, including Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler, New Girl‘s Zooey Deschanel, and Girls‘ Allison Williams in full-body shots. However, it is Mindy Kaling’s cover that is stirring some controversy because it only features a close-up of her face.

Though still a beautiful shot, some are now comparing the cover to Melissa McCarthy’s coat cover back in October. A similar incident also happened with the magazine’s 25th anniversary issue back in 2010 when Gabourey Sidibe, Megan Fox, Lauren Conrad, and Amanda Seyfried appeared on separate covers. Fox, Conrad, and Seyfried were featured in full-length photos, but Sidibe’s image was framed as a head-and-shoulders shot.

Kaling took to Twitter to respond and promote her full body of work at the same time.
