Jump To Tina Fey's Stats
Tina Fey must have a secret obsession about collecting statuettes. Between her collection of Emmys, Screen Actor Guild Awards, Writer's Guild Awards and Golden Globes for either writing, acting or producing television parts, her shelves at home sag from the weight of her continuous contributions through victory. She has more than 18 so far. The Second City and Saturday Night Live alumni has graduated into her own award-winning comedy series, making movies, posing for magazine covers, appearing off Broadway and writing books.
Her style is simple. Be mean with what you say and look innocent. She employed that strategy when she scripted, produced and directed Mean Girls with Lindsey Lohan. As her debut into movies won commercial success, Fey reached another goal that Hollywood usually denies to women directors. Her rise in every part of the business can only be because of her unusual drive and perfect comedic timing.
Fey earned the spot as the first female head writer on Saturday Night Live. Her shtick started out as the caustic news anchor along side Jimmy Fallon. Eventually, she sold Loraine Michaels her idea about Mean Girls and then persuaded the NBC network to back her endeavor at a comedy series featuring a comedy series. Her success has been unparalleled.
SNL had to bring her back during the 2008 run up for the U.S. Presidential campaign, portraying Sarah Palin. Her spot-on performances jacked the shows ratings every time Fey appeared as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate. Her impersonations of Palin were so good that eventually Sarah herself came on the show to make light of Fey's ability. Fey has also been able to bring in Senator John McCain, the 2008 Presidential candidate and his wife Cynthia to join in the hilarity.
Fey claims to remained a virgin until she was 24. During an interview with David Letterman, she explained to the national Late Show crowd that a couple of reasons underlie that occurrence. Lamenting that she couldn't give it away, she believes that it was a combination of good Christian values and being extremely homely.
