Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Parks and Recreation pal Amy Poehler reveals why she thinks the Veep star deserves to be inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame.
"No one deserves it more than Julia. She's the funniest person in the room always," Poehler, 42, gushes over her friend. "Awards are very arbitrary, but I will say that Julia is a force who has been creating excellent content for like a really long time, and she is doing her best work yet, I think, in Veep. She crushes it constantly."
Julia, 53, wasn't the only inductee at the 23rd Hall Of Fame ceremony, held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Tuesday night. Former Tonight Show host Jay Leno and TV writer David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, Boston Legal, The Crazy Ones), were one of six to be recognized.

Also inducted into the Television Academy Hall Of Fame this year were TV mogul Rupert Murdoch, ABC Network exec Brandon Stoddard and, posthumously, sound engineer and legendary inventor Ray Dolby.
