It was Amy Poehler’s last chance to win an Emmyfor her portrayal of Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation after that show wrapped its final season last spring. But, as she no doubt knew, there was pretty much no way the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series was going to go to anyone besides Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who is now still undefeated in the category for her role in Veep.
But as Twitter was quick to notice, Poehler had the hands-down best award show loser reaction of all time:

There is a parallel universe out there, which is like ours but better. And in it, Amy Poehler just won her 7th consecutive Emmy.
