Is Tina Fey an Emmy winner? You betcha. Fey received an Emmy Award on Saturday for her impersonation of Republican vice presidential contender Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live.”
Accepting the award, Fey thanked producer Lorne Michaels and her parents, “lifelong Republicans, for their patience.”
Fey’s award was the “Creative Arts” for technical and other achievements portion of the Primetime Emmys. Fey is also up for best actress in a comedy for “30 Rock” during next Sunday’s Emmy Awards Ceremony.
According to the Associated Press, Justin Timberlake won best guest actor in a comedy series, also for “SNL.” Michael J. Fox won the guest actor award in a drama for his appearance on “Rescue Me,” and Ellen Burstyn won the drama guest award for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
The two-hour “pre Emmy” ceremony was hosted by Kathy Griffin. The AP reported a shorter version of the ceremony airs Friday on E! at 1 p.m.
