Golden Globes Actually Interesting This Year…Kind Of…Thanks to Tina Fey

Okay, we’re going to admit that when the Golden Globes was canceled last year due to the strike – we didn’t notice. We’re that big of fans of awards shows. Last night there were the people watching the GGs and those watching 24. We were watching a rerun on Discovery Health about comedian Frank Payne‘s exploration of his morbid obesity. Because that how big a fan we are of 24.

Anyway, Tina Fey – a pioneer for female comedians – the Lucile Ball of nerds – the bane of Sarah Palin won for best actress in a TV comedy series and in her acceptance speech she called out commenters on Tom O’Neil‘s LA Times, The Envelope.


Fey said:

“I want to say thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press. I’ll always love the Hollywood Foreign Press and have all the Hollywood Foreign Press action figures. Thank you, Will Arnett, for that joke. But I want you to really know how lucky I am to have the year I’ve had this year and, if you ever start to feel too good about yourself, they have this thing called the Internet! You can find a lot of people there who don’t like you! I’d like to address some of them now! BabsonLacrosse, you can suck it. DianeFan, you can suck it. Cougar Letter, you can really suck it ’cause you’ve been after me all year. And to my husband, Jeff, I love you. Thank you very much!”

See? Actually interesting.

Gawker has all the DianeFan flames.
