Promoting the beginning of the ‘Mean Girls‘ National Tour, Tina Fey, Jeff Richmond, Casey Nicholaw, and Nell Benjamin talked to the Buffalo News, ahead of the first show in Buffalo tomorrow night. Read the full interview below!
There are three tall chairs in this room, and that’s a problem, because there are five people. That’s four Broadway producers and one interviewer. Who’s getting a seat? Who’s crouching in a corner?
Who’s cool? Who’s not?
Who’s in? Who’s out?
This is like trying to find the right seat in high school cafeteria. Who can you sit with? Where do you belong?
But then Tina Fey steps in. She’s in Buffalo, along with a director, a lyricist and a composer – to whom she also happens to be married – to premiere the national tour of the musical she wrote, “Mean Girls.”
In a new interview with EW, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Edie Falco, and more of the 2011 Comedy Actress nominees look back on their now-iconic Emmys ‘pageant’ moment. Read the full interview below!
In 2011, Mad Men and Modern Family were the big winners of the 63rd Annual Emmy Awards, but it was the nominees of the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category who truly stole the show.
At the brilliant suggestion of Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler, all of the women in the category — Laura Linney (The Big C), Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope), Tina Fey (30 Rock), and Poehler — assembled on stage in a surprise stunt before the winner was announced. Clearly moved by the display, Don Cheadle, Melissa Leo, and Kate Winslet quickly rose to their feet, leading a standing ovation.
McCarthy won that year, and in the best way possible — surrounded by five of TV’s biggest actresses, hugging and congratulating her like she was a queen. As we cross our fingers and hope to die that Sunday’s telecast on Fox will be jam-packed with seminal moments like this, here’s a look back at the 2011 Emmys and how a clever idea by Poehler made all the women feel like winners.

TV Insider has published a new article today, in which they featured some quotes from the actors of ‘Modern Love‘, including Tina Fey. Read what she had to say about her character Sarah below.
The 30 Rock vet stars as one half of a couple truly struggling in their marriage. “We’ve been going to therapy, but it’s not really clicking, so our therapist advises us to find a common hobby,” Fey says. “We start to play tennis.” One “superfun” bonus for the actress: To help get into the, uh, swing of things, she and costar John Slattery took lessons together!
Our gallery has been updated with a new production still from Tina’s episode. Make sure to check it out below!
The University of Virginia launched a new campaign called Keep ‘The Good Old Song’ Good, created with the intent to urge people to stop changing the lyrics of the song in an offensive way and keep the song positive and inclusive. Tina Fey is one of the alumni that appear in the video. You can watch the video and read more about the campaign below!
A new video campaign by the University of Virginia is urging people to keep the school’s fight song positive and some familiar faces are taking part.
The Good Old Song is sung at sporting events, final exercises, and even some Wahoo weddings. The song has a positive feel and is meant to bring unity to the UVA community, but some people change the lyrics in an offensive way – including the addition of “not” in the line “when all is bright and gay.”
In an attempt to address this, some people began singing “eff Virginia Tech” instead. University officials are not fond of either lyric and created a public service announcement that includes UVA alum Tina Fey, Dean of Students Allen Groves, and University Professor of Politics Larry Sabato.
“The massacring of The Good Old Song is embarrassing for the university,” Sabato said. “It is embarrassing for the people who do it but most of all it is juvenile.”
Athletic Director Carla Williams says the substitutions do not represent UVA because it is a place that “wins and competes with class”. President Jim Ryan appears in the video, saying “The Good Old Song is really good as written.” Tina Fey implores students to simply “stop doing that.”
“Our hope is that people will hold themselves accountable for making UVA people where The Good Old Song is sung inclusive and happy,” Groves said.
UVA hopes its PSA, which will be played at the first home football game on Friday.
