Tina Fey Betty White GrammysThe Grammys have always put some of our favorite artists up against one another, but the latest batch of nominations is giving us one very epic battle: Tina Fey vs. Betty White. Say what!?

Both funny women have been nominated for Best Spoken Word Album, Fey for her reading of 'Bossypants' and White for 'If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't).' We can't wait for the (hopefully) hilarious split-screen reactions from the actual ceremony.

White and Fey aren't the only TV stars to pick up nominations.

Seth MacFarlane picked up a few noms, one for the 'Family Guy' original song 'Christmastime Is Killing Us' and another Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Over in the Best Comedy Album category, Kathy Griffin, Louis C.K. and Lonely Island are up against one another.

by Mike Ryan, posted Nov 21st 2011 10:15AM
People forget this, but seven years before Colin Firth became an Oscar winner for playing the King of England, and before Firth became the no-doubt-about-it household name that he is today, he hosted 'SNL,' back in March of 2004. Firth is currently promoting his new spy thriller, 'Tinker Tailor Solider Spy,' but took some time to reminisce about his hosting duties and made it clear that, yes, he wants to host 'SNL' again. The ball is in your court, 'SNL.' (And, yes, 'SNL,' you should totally let Colin Firth host again.)

Tina Fey Likes 'The Real Housewives,' But Wishes They Fought Less (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 8th 2011 6:15PM
Tina Fey and Brian Williams both watch 'The Real Housewives,' and like most of us, they're not entirely comfortable with that. On 'Rock Center' (weekdays, 10PM ET on NBC) Monday night, they talked about the trainwreck TV juggernaut's merits and debated which installments were their favorite.

"I used to like the 'Real Housewives,' but not so much when they're fighting," Fey said, not mentioning that they're fighting all the time. When she said that her favorite editions are New York and Beverly Hills, Williams, a proud son of New Jersey, was aghast.

"Not New Jersey?" he asked. "I find Jersey so far and away the best of them," Williams said.

"Sub-human," Fey replied, and continued her biting critique. "Orange County ... I literally can't tell the women apart. They look like a fire at a wax museum ... I can't tell what I'm looking at."

It looks like '30 Rock' may be taking a page from 'Community''s paintball episodes.

Tina Fey was spotted in New York City Friday shooting a '30 Rock' scene that had Liz Lemon covered in red paint after getting doused by PETA for wearing a white fur coat.

'30 Rock' started production on Season 6 two weeks ago, but still doesn't have a set premiere date.

Check out a larger photo of Fey drenched in paint after the jump.

Another guest actor, 'X-Men' star James Marsden, was also on set that day. No word on who he'll be playing, but it could be a new love interest for Tina Fey's character.

Plus, it looks like the fictional sketch show 'TGS' has angered gay fans.

Emmys Opening Musical Number: Did Jane Lynch or Jimmy Fallon Do It Better? (VIDEO)

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 18th 2011 9:05PM
Jane Lynch Emmys openerJane Lynch kicked off the 2011 Emmy Awards with a musical number filled with celebrity cameos (Leonard Nimoy!), which, coincidentally, is how Jimmy Fallon kicked off the 2010 ceremony.

So, how did the two compare?

Well, Fallon went big with a 'Glee' tribute and Bruce Springsteen cover, while Lynch took the solo route with an original number about the magic of television and how everyone on TV lives in the same building.

Both recruited a ton of celebs to help out, but Fallon had the stars sing along with him while Lynch dropped into different show sets. Both included a requisite 'Dancing With the Stars' dig, though.

Who nabbed the bigger stars?

Five TV Stars Who Could Be Better Oscar Hosts Than Eddie Murphy

by Stephanie Earp, posted Sep 7th 2011 9:20AM


I keep expecting this whole 'Eddie Murphy hosts the Oscars' thing to be a faulty meme, but now that the news is confirmed, I guess I'll have to come to grips with it. Okay -- done. After all, Murphy is one of the highest-grossing movie stars of all time, can be very very funny, and has proven he can still be funny without using swears ('Shrek'). He has been nominated for "The Statue." (And who can hold it against him if he left the theater shortly after he lost it to Alan Arkin?)



Truth is, the most shocking thing about this whole whirlwind of a story is that Brett Ratner is co-producing the Oscars. Has the Academy looked at his resume lately? What am I saying? These are the same people who thought James Franco and Anne Hathaway were the answer to their problems.

There's been a ton of speculation about Baldwin's moves after his contract expires, but Fey, the creator and star of the series whose contract is also up, indicated they haven't given up on keeping him around.

"You know, we're going to keep talking to him," Fey told Deadline. "I think he's a person who talks sometimes and changes his mind, like any person. But we are going to keep talking to him, and as soon as I know, I will let you know."

Dot-Marie Jones Will Roshambo for the Emmy (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 23rd 2011 4:30PM
Dot-Marie Jones on her 'Glee' Emmy nomination on 'Good Day LA'Dot-Marie Jones's Coach Beiste is perhaps the only person in the 'Glee' universe who could go toe-to-toe with Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester. For that fortitude and charisma, she was rewarded with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress.

Tuesday, 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on FOX) anchor Tony McEwing got a glimpse of how intimidating Jones can be when he mispronounced her character's name (it's pronounced like "beast," but McEwing said "beasty").

McEwing immediately apologized, and asked her to be gentle. "I'm always gentle," she said, "for a minute." He also noticed she had a broken foot. "I broke a bone because somebody wasn't gentle, Tony," said Jones.

Ashton Kutcher and Hugh Laurie Are TV's Highest-Paid Actors

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 10th 2011 1:55PM
Ashton KutcherTelevision is attracting more and more big-name stars, but this week's TV Guide Magazine points out that it's probably more of a fiscally sound decision for the actors than we realize.

While the most elite A-Listers make millions in movies, it's much less lucrative for everyone else. TV, on the other hand, offers a steady paycheck. Six-digit paydays add up when you take a 22- or 13-episode season into account.

It probably won't surprise you to know that Ashton Kutcher, who is filling Charlie Sheen's shoes on 'Two and a Half Men,' tops the comedy list with a salary of $700,000 per episode -- half a million dollars less than what Sheen was making. 'House' star Hugh Laurie makes the same $700,000 for every hourlong episode of the Fox medical drama.

Tina Fey and NBC Chief Condemn Tracy Morgan's Homophobic Rant

by PopEater Staff, posted Jun 13th 2011 4:50AM
Tina FeyTracy Morgan has apologized after he reportedly indulged in a homophobic and sexist rant during a recent standup show in Nashville. The '30 Rock' star said he "clearly went too far and was not funny in any context."

Now Morgan's '30 Rock' boss and co-star, Tina Fey, says she didn't think it was funny either. In a statement to TMZ.com, she said she was glad Morgan had apologized, but admitted it was "disturbing."

"The violent imagery of Tracy's rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community," she said. "It also doesn't line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person.

She concluded pointedly: "I hope for his sake that Tracy's apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian co-workers at '30 Rock', without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with, or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket."
