Emmy nominations smackdown: Betty White vs. Tina Fey
Just how mighty is all this Betty White mania? She got an Emmy nomination, as expected, for hosting "Saturday Night Live," but she faces a fierce diva battle against "SNL" costar Tina Fey, who won the category last year for her Sarah Palin spoof.
Oh, yeah, Betty White is also nominated against Elaine Stritch ("30 Rock," for the episode "The Moms" — she won this category in 2007 for portraying Alec Baldwin's monster mother), Jane Lynch ("Two and a Half Men," "818-JKLPUZO"), Kristen Chenoweth ("Glee," "The Rhodes Not Taken"), Christine Baranski ("The Big Bang Theory," "The Maternal Congruence") and former TV academy governor and past champ Kathryn Joosten ("Desperate Housewives," "The Chase").
There was so much Emmy love for the Betty White episode of "Saturday Night Live" that it also got nominations for directing, writing, art direction, hair styling, lighting and makeup.
