When Tina Fey won an Emmy last year for channeling Sarah Palin on "Saturday Night Live," it was a happy ending for the comedienne who was almost cheated out of a shot at that gold. Bizarrely, the TV academy eliminated the category for guest performers on variety shows. That's the race Tina Fey normally would've competed in -- separately from her nominations in the comedy-series races for "30 Rock."
But the Emmys decided to let some "Saturday Night Live" performers compete for best guest performance in a comedy series. She did and she won, beating two stars nominated for starring in "30 Rock" -- Jennifer Aniston and Elaine Stritch.
Last night, Fey appeared again on "Saturday Night Live" and gave another Emmy-worthy performance. Below, her shtick on "Weekend Update." She reports, "All is not good in Ladyland. I am talking, of course, about the Oscar curse. The theory is that when a woman wins an Oscar her husband will cheat on her. That's not an Oscar curse. That's just a lady curse.
"There's no such thing as an Oscar curse. The curse is that there are people like 'Bombshell' McGee walking around. I know we shouldn't judge people based on their appearance, but when your body looks like a dirt bag's binder from seventh-grade metal shop, it doesn't bode well for your character."
