The former Saturday Night Live castmates – nominated for best actress in a TV comedy, which was won by Lena Dunham of HBO’s Girls – crashed the categories of best actor and actress in a TV movie or miniseries, putting on loony disguises and sneaking in as nominees for a fairly bizarre-sounding film called Dog President.
Poehler, sporting red hair and buck teeth, was introduced as actress Darcy St. Fudge, “a psychic who solves her own murder.” Fey popped up in the actor category as Damian Francisco, “a professional volleyball player battling restless-leg syndrome.”
Fey, with big glasses and a pencil-thin mustache, seemed to be channeling Johnny Depp. Poehler’s inspiration was less clear. Let us know below who you thought she was supposed to be. (A deranged version of Merida from Brave?)
Even more important, when will this Dog President get a wide release?
