"Amy and I do a movie every seven years. Aside from the actual work, the greatest joy for us is that it becomes an excuse to spend this much time together."

Elle Women in Hollywood Awards honor Garner, Fey, Banks, Bening, Lange

When introducing her bestie and tablemate Fey, “Parks and Recreation’s” Poehler took note of the number of women in the room and called the event the "open casting call" for the all-female "Ghostbusters 3" reboot. The wise-cracking Golden Globes co-host then got sincere about her “SNL” compatriot.

Tina is so Hollywood that she doesn’t even live here. She lives in New York City,” she said. “She can do so many things well … she knows how to light up a room. Literally. She’s also a gaffer …

It’s harder to be funny than be serious,” Poehler emphasized.

She shared that Fey, who’s “the real deal” and “a real person in the real world,” had gifted her a portrait of her sons Archie and Abel made out of Legos as a wrap gift for completing “The Nest” over the summer.

I cried because I knew that my gift to Tina was a heart-shaped pillow with the word ‘butts’ on it,” she said.

You’re unapologetically the boss. You’re always the funniest person in the room,” she added, speaking directly to Fey. Poehler also noted that it was no coincidence that their buddy comedy would be hitting theaters the same weekend as the next episode of “Star Wars.”

Tina is the only one who can beat ‘Star Wars,’ you guys!" she exclaimed. "She’s my Han Solo and I’m her Chewbacca, because she’s the only one who can understand me sometimes, and I will destroy anyone who tries to hurt her.

Fey, 44, whose introductory video montage earned her applause for saying that she does everything men do but she does it in heels, thanked Poehler and “SNL” alum Rachel Dratch and teased the audience about their dirty, unpublished “SNL” moms text chain. (She joked that she’d publish it when she turned 50.)

The actress-writer-director said that when she started at “SNL” in 1996, she knew she was brought there to write for the women in the cast, to try to help get them onto the show.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want points on [Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph’s] ‘Bridesmaids’ even though it had nothing to do with me.

She also shared her “deep sadness” over the loss of “SNL” alumna Jan Hooksearlier this month.

Jan deserved a big movie career, a bigger one. Certainly a bigger one than … Rob Schneider,” she said, earning the room’s laughter before she recalled how glad she was to have cast Hooks on “30 Rock” in 2010 to play Jenna Maroney’s mother.
