Former Saturday Night Live star Tina Fey won an Emmy for her dead-on impression of Sarah Palin yesterday (September 12, 2009) at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. Read more about the story here.
During her acceptance speech for “best guest actress in a comedy,” Tina thanked SNL producer Lorne Michaels as well as her parents, who are longtime Republicans “for their patience.”
Using her award-winning imitation of the former Alaskan Governor, Fey poked fun at her saying:
“Mrs. Palin is an inspiration to working mothers everywhere because she bailed on her job right before Fourth of July weekend. You are living my dream. Thank you, Mrs. Palin.”
This isn’t the first time that Tina Fey has teased at Palins expense either, as a guest on the David Letterman show the “30 Rock” actress said that she has a “crazy voice” and compared it to Billy Bob Thortons in the movie “Sling Blade”.
Other’s who snagged trophies at the ceremony include pop-star Just Timberlake for his appearance on SNL, Michael J. Fox for his appearances on “Rescue Me,” and Ellen Burstyn for her appearance on “law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
