Tina Fey Scores Emmy for ‘Mavericky’ Sarah Palin Spoof

September 13, 2009

(ChattahBox)— “I can see Russia from my house!” Former Saturday Night Live regular, Tina Fey won an Emmy on Saturday evening for her spot-on portrayal of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, perfectly incorporating Palin’s folksy winks and expressions like, “You betcha.” Dressed in her Sarah Palin campaign suit, wig and signature glasses, Fey was transformed into a near-identical likeness of Palin.

Fey took time off from her popular show, “30 Rock,” for her star turn as Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live. Fey actually beat two nominees from her popular NBC comedy, which scored the highest number of Emmy nominations at 22.

Fey referenced Palin, the now, former Governor of Alaska during her acceptance remarks.

“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,” said Fey.

The awards were given out during the creative arts portion of the Emmys, recognizing achievements in technical categories. The main awards will be handed out during a live broadcast on September 20.

    Never heard of Tina Fey! I have heard of other winners ( who obviously have talent to write their own material or are stars ). Too bad this woman can’t write or act . Why would someone like that win any award? Seriously is this someone who is known in the entertainment industry or some kind of media spoof? Never can tell anymore!!
