Amy Poehler won't be Tweeting, pinning or posting a selfie anytime soon.

"I'm not a real social media person. I'm not on Twitter," the Parks and Recreation star and Golden Globes cohost tells Paper Magazine for its holiday gift guide issue. She also notes that she finds people can be mean online – even when they don't intend to be.

"I try not to read too much online because I always get my feelings hurt, even if someone's flattering you," says Poehler.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, start warming up!

Thursday morning brought the Golden Globe nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, in anticipation of when the two women will host the freewheeling ceremony come next month.

As expected, there were major showings for the movies 12 Years a Slave, which led Wednesday's Screen Actors Guild nominations, and American Hustle, already winner of the New York Film Critics Circle Award for best film.

Those two films received seven nominations each, including those for 12 Years's Chiwetel Ejiofor and Hustle's supporting actors Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

Completely shut out, to the surprise of many, were SAG nominees Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker – in fact, everything and everybody with anything to do with Lee Daniels' The Butler.

The 71st annual Golden Globes will air live on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 12. For a complete list of nominations, click here.

Songbirds, they're not.

But Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are already practicing their act, releasing a decidedly off-key tune (watch it here) as they make comic preparations for the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards, set for Jan. 12.

The SNL alumni made last year's show a memorable and bawdy one as hosts, sipping on cocktails from the stage and making fun of TV and film stars, including George Clooney and Taylor Swift, with razor-sharp digs.

What a cute bunch!

Amy Poehler took her sons Abel, 3, and Archie, 5, to a local farmers market in Beverly Hills on Sunday.

Poehler, 42, appeared less like an actress and more like an everyday mom as she directed her sons through the market.

Touting fresh juices and sporting coordinating striped tops and sneakers, both sons have a striking resemblance to Poehler. Especially Archibald, who just turned 5-years-old and shares his mom's blond tresses.
