Tina Fey: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For a Comedy Series and Outstanding Comedy Series

30 Rocks Liz Lemon

Tina Fey walked away a triple winner tonight with Emmys for Outstanding Actress, Writing and Comedy Series, but ultimately couldn’t compare them. “They look identical,” she joked backstage, adding, “The show – that one really belongs to everyone so I don’t like it as much.”

The actress, who once compared her scenes with Alec Baldwin to Fred Astaire dancing with a coat rack, won’t be apologizing anymore either. Baldwin told her after her latest win “to stop apologizing for being an actor and being on the show.”

Of course it’s those same acting chops that had fans buzzing about her recent guest spot on Saturday Night Live posing as Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin.

While Fey was in denial about the uncanny resemblance between the two, it was her daughter who saw Palin on TV and said “that’s mommy.” But Fey hopes her impersonation will be short-lived telling the press, “I want to be done playing this lady Nov. 5, so if anyone can help me be done playing this lady Nov. 5, that would be great with me.”
