Poor Amy Poehler: Will this year's Globes co-host FINALLY win?

In the world of TV awards, there are winners... and then there's Amy Poehler.

The "Parks and Recreation" star has amassed so many nominations for her TV work without a single win that she even created a Loser's Party following last year's Emmys where she and fellow also-rans (like Jon Hamm) "celebrated."

This month, Poehler and BFF Tina Fey return to emcee the Golden Globes for the second year in a row. Will 2014 be the year Poehler finally takes home a trophy too?

Poehler is up for TV Comedy Actress for the third consecutive year for her starring role of Leslie Knope on "Parks and Rec." She faces off against Lena Dunham ("Girls"), Edie Falco ("Nurse Jackie"), Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") and Zooey Deschanel ("New Girl"). Gold Derby's Experts, Editors and Users have Poehler in second place with 9/2 odds behind Louis-Dreyfus with a leading odds of 4/11.

At last year's ceremony she lost to Dunham and in 2012 she was bested by Laura Dern ("Enlightened"). However, over at the Emmys, Poehler is an even bigger loser.

She netted two Emmy nods for her supporting work on "Saturday Night Live" (2008, 2009) and an additional six for writing, producing and starring in "Parks and Rec" (2010 - 2013). Add in her bid last year for co-hosting the "70th Annual Golden Globe Awards" and that's a whopping nine Emmy losses.

Her other awards failures include: one SAG loss (2013),  three WGA losses (2012-2013) and three Television Critics Assn. Awards losses (2011-2013).

Poehler is so beloved in the industry, it's shocking to hear that she's never won a TV award and given an acceptance speech at the podium. Her mantel isn't completey bare though, as she won an MTV Movie Award in 2009 for Best WTF Moment for "Baby Mama." Congrats...?

Find out if Poehler can finally win when the Golden Globes air on NBC on Jan. 12. Meanwhile, vote now for the TV Comedy Actress category using our easy drag-and-drop menu, and then watch NBC's new hilarious Globes promo featuring Poehler and Fey.
