National treasure Amy Poehler was recently honored with a Lifetime Impact award at Variety's annual Power of Women luncheon—no surprise there, as there's nothing Hollywood's prom queen/student council president/AV club co-chair can't accomplish. But instead of her traditional blend of humor with gravitas, Poehler's speech about the work she's done with Worldwide Orphans was simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming—she was even moved to tears throughout.

Other honorees included Kerry Washington, Charlize Theron, and Jennifer Hudson.
