Nothing like a little popcorn bonding. Chris Pratt and Amy Poehler had Parks and Recreation fans cheering when they reunited at the MTV Movie Awards. 

Pratt giving Poehler a standing ovation when she won for Best Virtual Performance (for Inside Out) wasn’t lost on fans, either — Twitter was awash with cheers of a happy heart and #FriendshipGoals. Making matters even better, Poehler called out her pal during her acceptance speech.

“Just weirdly, today is the ninth anniversary of the first time Parks and Recreation aired on TV, and I wanna give a shout out to my man Chris Pratt,” she said. “So I’m also going to pretend that I’m winning for that.”

And there’s no question — she is a winner for her friendship with the Guardians of the Galaxy star.

Apparently, she’s also a winner for some of the moments we didn’t see: “Also I’m going to pretend I won it for best dance moves during the commercial break.” We’ll give it to her — but only because Taylor Swift wasn’t in attendance.
