Tina Fey is the new Hollywood “It” girl. On September 21st Fey received three Emmy Awards for her outstanding writing, acting, and creation of “30 Rock”. One week earlier on “Saturday Night Live” Fey’s first spoof of vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin went down in history as their highest-rated premiere since 2001. She mocked Palin a second time this past Saturday as her co-star Amy Poehler depicted Katie Couric. The two actresses played out the interview that everyone is talking about from CBS’s “Evening News”. Poehler also co-starred in Fey’s recently released DVD of the hit comedy “Baby Mama”, which released at the number one spot in theaters back in April.
Fey and Poehler have been together on “SNL” since 2001. In 2004 when Poehler stepped in for actor Jimmy Fallon for the ‘Weekend Update’ on “SNL” it became the very first time two women co-anchored the skit. Also that year the actresses went to the big screen for the first time together as teachers in the comedy “Mean Girls”, which Fey wrote the screenplay for based on the book “Queen Bees and Wannabes” by Rosalind Wiseman.
Fey is on a roll and everyone is noticing. This fall “30 Rock” will be throwing around some famous names as Jennifer Aniston, Steve Martin, Megan Mullally, and Oprah Winfrey are set to guest star. For all the Oprah fans, be ready to watch on November 6th.
One question that may be on her fan’s minds, “Who is Tina Fey voting for?”. Now that she has done the parody of Palin twice are fans to think that she is against the vice presidential candidate? Or is Fey a fan because she would like Palin to contact her regarding the skit?
