Tag: Tina Fey (31-40 of 173)

Tina Fey seriously isn't hosting the Oscars. Seriously -- VIDEO

The good news: Tina Fey has “sweatpants-mandatory” Oscar viewing parties, and if you eat your vegetables — er, off-brand Mexican cheese curls — and wish real hard, someday you might be invited to one.

The bad news: She really, really isn’t going to host the Oscar ceremony anytime soon. The subject came up last night on the Late Show, where Fey was appearing to promote her new movie Admission. After David Letterman complimented her performance at the Golden Globes, he asked if she and Amy Poehler might be up for the Academy Awards as well. Fey’s answer, unfortunately, echoed remarks she made to the Huffington Post this week: “I don’t think so. I’ll tell you what — for a woman, just the amount of dresses you would have to try on… It’s a dealbreaker. I’m out.”

Well, blerg. At least she sort of makes up for this later in the interview by predicting that one of her daughters will grow up to be a “lesbian paleontologist.” Check out the clip here:

Sorry, world -- Tina Fey says she won't host the Oscars

The Oscars will look to 30 Rock creator Tina Fey and shout, “Save us!” And she will whisper, “No.”

Fey and Amy Poehler’s winning turn at this year’s Golden Globes has led legions of fans — including thousands of EW readers — to speculate about how great it would be if one or both took their sister act all the way to next year’s Oscars ceremony. Unfortunately, Fey has no intention of fulfilling our dreams.

“I just feel like that gig is so hard,” she told the Huffington Post yesterday. “Especially for, like, a woman — the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone … no way.” When pressed, Fey wouldn’t even say that there’s a “one in a million chance” of her taking the stage at the Academy Awards: “I wish I could tell you there was,” she said, killing us softly with her words.

Seth MacFarlane says he'll never host the Oscars again -- so who should step up next year? POLL

Looking for another bad-on-purpose-but-even-so-we’re-going-to-sing-it-for-three-minutes song about boobs at next year’s Academy Awards? Sorry, Charlie — Seth MacFarlane isn’t interested in a repeat hosting performance:

MacFarlane’s decision to follow Ricky Gervais’s awards show lead must be disappointing for the 46 percent of EW readers who think the Family Guy creator did a great job on Sunday — not to mention ABC, which must be pleased with the show’s high ratings (40.3 million viewers, up 3 percent from last year, with an 11 percent increase in adults 18-49). It also means that next year’s hosting field is wide open — though that said, there are a few frontrunners for the gig.

Want to pass some eye water? Do you love 30 Rock more than you love eating sharp cheddar cheese in your PJs? Well we’ve got the video for you.

In honor of the series finale of 30 Rock, the cast and crew put together this tribute to Tina Fey where they praise her as a writer, boss, and friend.

Jane Krakowski (who better get her Emmy this year) gives an incredibly heartfelt account of meeting Fey and working with her over the years.

“She has gone through a phase in her career where her light shone so brightly,” Krakowski says, wiping away tears. “And she shared her light with all of us, which is really sweet of her.”

Here’s the video (warning: Don’t watch without weakness tissues): READ FULL STORY

30 Rock is over: discuss the series finale!

'30 Rock' is over: Discuss the series finale!

“Dark times are these.” You’re right, Liz Lemon. Dark times, indeed. We’ve finally come to the end of this seven-season journey. Liz Lemon & Co. have said their final goodbyes. 30 Rock will live on in syndication, our hearts, and frequent night cheese tributes. So let’s recap how it all went down:

In “Hogcock,” part 1 of the finale, Liz was trying to acclimate to her new role as a stay-at-home mom. Jack tried to convince Lemon that she would go crazy without an outlet, but she was sure she could make it work. Further complicating matters, Liz started an all-out message board war with an anonymous Internet nemesis on the website, GothamMoms.com. As it turned out, her nemesis was her own husband, Criss, who was equally struggling in his new role as a working dad. So they decide to switch: Criss would stay at home, and Liz would pitch a new show to Kenneth. “John Hardly. He loves his family, but he hates the rat race. He’s: Hardly Working.” Kenneth turned her down, and instead gave her one last chance for TGS to make America say, ‘What? Why?’” A stipulation in Tracy’s contract required that he appear in at least 150 episodes of TGS, or the network would owe him $30 million. They’d only done 149, so Kenneth insisted that Liz come back and do one more show. READ FULL STORY

That is so fetch: Tina Fey wants Mariah Carey for 'Mean Girls' musical -- We cast other characters

Mean-Girls_510x317.jpg

While talking to E! Online on the red carpet at the SAG Awards, Tina Fey mentioned that she thought Mariah Carey could star in her Mean Girls musical. (She told EW of her plans to turn her hit film into a musical back in our September cover story.)

“Maybe she can play Amy Poehler’s part,” Fey joked, after discussing Mariah’s knowledge of the film.

Mariah Carey as Mrs. George? She certainly has the singing voice for the role. But who else would we cast in our perfect production of Mean Girls? READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock': Willy Wonka and the NBC factory

30 Rock is going out with a bang. Or a least with a wonderful tribute to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. In an effort to find his successor, Jack reinstated Kenneth the page to give a special VIP tour to the five final candidates for the position. The contenders (conveniently named Charlie, Veruca, Mike, Augustus, and Violet) were led to believe the tour was just a formality, but it was really the last part of the interview. Enter “NBC’s TV version of Willy Wonka starring Bob Uecker.” READ FULL STORY
