Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series
Damien Lewis ponders what it's like to act in a TV show that makes people laugh (instead of bite their nails down to the quick) before introducing the nominees for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series as:
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation
Sofia Vergara, Modern Family
Betty White, Hot in Cleveland
Our fingers were crossed for Amy Poehler, who's yet to win a major award for Parks and Rec, or have ever been nominated for a SAG Award before today. Sadly, Amy didn't take the prize as it went to her Golden Globes co-host (and equally talented funny woman) Tina Fey, which is just as good for us. Fey dedicated her Actor to Poehler, who she says she's known Amy since she "was pregnant with Lena Dunham." Nice comeback to Dunham's snarky, ageist acceptance speech at earlier this month at the Globes there (in which she thanked the duo for "getting her through Middle School"). Well played Tina, well played.
