Winner of the Week: Tina Fey

Tinafey_lWelcome to a new PopWatch feature called “Winner of the Week,” where we’ll decide each Friday which entertainer had the most successful week. Our inaugural winner is Tina Fey. Her three acceptance speeches were highlights of an otherwise lackluster Emmy telecast. Her show 30 Rock got a much needed buzz boost by winning seven Emmys (more than any other comedy or drama series this year), including the top prize, Best Comedy Series, for the second straight year. (Even the loss of her purse at the Emmys earned her some additional sympathetic publicity.) Meanwhile, pundits started talking about the “Tina Fey” effect on Sarah Palin’s poll numbers, citing a correlation between Fey’s celebrated impression of her on Saturday Night Live on Sept. 13 and a decline since then in the vice presidential candidate’s popularity. We even laughed again at Fey’s updated American Express ad with Martin Scorsese, So congratulations, Tina Fey, on being PopWatch’s first ever Winner of the Week!

Keep an eye out next Friday for the next Winner of the Week award. And if you have nominations, feel free to send them our way over the course of the week. (Oh, and if you disagree with this week’s choice, go ahead and tell us who had a better week this week than Fey.) Meanwhile, enjoy Michael Ausiello’s interview with Fey on the Emmy red carpet.

    No disagreement here: long live Fey!

  • Amy

    She totally deserves it! I love 30 Rock, but I wish she would write more movies (notice write and note star in).

  • Jax

    Good choice! She’s simply awesome.

  • Sherri

    No doubt about that. An amazing week for her and she deserved it for all her excellent work. Yet, some genius at NBC did not think about bringing 30 Rock back this week to capitalize on the buzz.
    Did anyone see the 30 Rock promo that aired during The Office last night? NBC is really pushing the Jack/Liz shippy angle although knowing those promo monkeys, it’s probably nothing/just a gag. Still, so ready for it to come back!

  • Nick

    Nice choice. I love this woman.

  • Ryan

    Tina is my nerd crush!!!

  • Robert

    Tina Fey is a comedy goddess. The woman is a genius, and I really hope more people watch her show this year. You’d think winning the Emmy for best comedy two years in a row would help.


    Tina Fey can be defined in one word “OVERRATED”.

  • Anonymous

    Not to say this isn’t deserved for the lovely Ms. Fey, but isn’t all you’re saying is that she had the Best Week Ever? I thought that was VH-1’s job.

  • Ben

    Yeah, Tina Fey is overrated. She is really not that funny.

  • Clay Atlas

    Tina Fey is the awesome collossum.

  • Katie

    Yeah, I have to agree, this kind of smacks of copying Best Week Ever. Can’t the blogs just coexist peacefully?

  • Dave

    C’mon, people! Tina Fey is not that funny. These days it seems that everyone is entertained by such mediocrity as her, Seth Rogen, and Judd Apatow movies.

  • Yancey

    Tina Fey is comedic gold. She rocks it on “30 Rock”, and her Sarah Palin impression is one for the history books. She’s all that and then some.
