Amy Poehler Misses 'Parks and Recreation,' Totally Digs Chillin' in the Emmys Audience

After witnessing Amy Poehler's faux snoozefest during Julia Louis-Dreyfus' acceptance speech, it totally makes sense why she admitted on the Emmys red carpet that she actually prefers chillin' with her fellow thespians in the Emmys audience (even she totally rocked her presentation of the night's first award with Amy Schumer).

Before the awards show kicked off, the 44-year-old actress chatted with E!'s Ryan Seacrest about what she misses about playing the political maniac Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation.

"I miss the people," Amy said of her former co-stars. "I miss the cast and hanging with them every day and getting to see their great faces, and the work and playing Leslie Knope. I loved all of them."

How sweet, Amy.! But seriously, we're dying to know the deets on exactly what's so special about watching the show from the crowd instead of being on the stage -especially coming from someone who's up for more than one award.

"I could get a little drunk," Amy admitted. "Andy [Samberg] will do a good job."

OK, so we have no shame in saying that this makes us long for an Amy Poehler-hosted Emmys even more! We could only imagine the hilarity that would ensue if Amy went slightly Kanye on us and sipped on a little something before the gig.

There's always next year, Amy.
