Nevertheless, she’s Tina Fey and she pulled off such an awesome acceptance speech that I really to Freaky Friday with her in real life and get to be her, for at least one day. Preferably a day when she’s getting manis and pedis with Amy Poehler.
Not only did she remind me that 30 Rock is ending this week and not only did she give me the warm and fuzzies when she thanked her husband for scoring the show for free, but she gave her best friend Amy Poehler such an awesome shout out that I want it embroidered on my heart. While I haven’t had the chance to memorize it verbatim yet, the best line was something along the lines of “I share this with my sweet friend Amy Poehler, I’ve known you since you were pregnant with Lena Dunham.”
One: hilarious joke. Two: it makes an award show junkie like me feel validated for watching so many award shows. For those of you who don’t spend all your Sundays from January through February live-tweeting award shows, you may have missed Lena’s backhanded compliment for Amy and Tina during the Golden Globes. Well, they got her back during the show and they got her back again tonight. I hope this turns into Hollywood’s most long-running feud. Three: I want to be in on their friendship so badly.
Also I hope TV executives finally see the potential for an Amy Poehler and Tina Fey talk show. I can’t think of two people I’d rather watch more.
