Writer and comedienne Tina Fey, who is getting a lot of attention for her dead-on impersonation of Republican Veepee Sarah Palin, is on a serious roll. Last night at the 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Fey was one of the big winners.
“30 Rock,” created by Fey, won seven Emmys including best comedy. Fey picked up two of those awards for acting and writing. Also, Fey starred in the movie “Baby Mama”, which has made more than $60 million since opening in April. Recently, Fey’s performance as Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live” (09-13-08) has been getting rave reviews.
“John Adams” received 23 Emmy nominations.
In other Emmy highlights, HBO’s “John Adams” cleaned up with a record breaking 13 awards including best miniseries and AMC’s “Mad Men” made history by becoming the first cable program to win the best drama award.
