As we gear up for this weekend’s Golden Globes, let’s take a look at one friendship that trumps all the others in Hollywood. Yep, I’m talking about BFF’s Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. This article by Vulture.com summarizes their union perfectly. Plus, the duo has updated the rules for their awards show drinking game – so good luck getting out of bed on Monday.

Sidenote: Did you know Tina Fey gave her second child (Alice) the middle name Zenobia? I looked it up and apparently she’s either named after a 3rd century Arabic Queen or a Swedish built Challenger-class RO-RO ferry. So, she’ll either grow up to be royalty or the captain of a ship. Pretty much she’ll be awesome.

*Note to self: Start gearing up for the Golden Globes (aka put my local liquor store’s # under favorites).

211. These Girls Rock So Hard

Hosts

I didn’t even need to watch the rest of the Golden Globe Awards last night (via JetBlue, thank you) because Amy and Tina’s opening monologue made the whole thing worth it. Their delivery and characters made me laugh so hard I cried in my seat (12A, window, thankfully). I literally had to use my drink napkin to wipe my tears away (in between gulps of “turbulence-soothing” wine). In case you missed it, here’s how they opened the ceremony (think my favorite joke was the James Cameron reference and hearing all the stunned celebrities who couldn’t hold in their laughter):

210. The End of an Era

30 Rock Title

Tina Fey has once again infiltrated my life this week (upcoming gig as co-host for the SAG Awards, her appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and most importantly, I watched Mean Girls last night). This made me want to say:

Thank you Tina Fey for creating 30 Rock – the show that gave us a glimpse into the world of a late night variety show (ahem, SNL) and introduced us to characters who love/hate each other so much that they’re willing to be each others mentors yet sabotage each other at the same time.

My top three favorite episodes are:

  1. Queen of Jordan (Season 5, Episode 17)
  2. Black Tie (Season 1, Episode 12)
  3. Blind Date (Season 1, Episode 3)

My top 3 favorite side characters are:

  1. Mr. Spaceman
  2. Paul L’Astname (aka Mr. Jenna Maroney)
  3. Devon Banks

The cast has been celebrating the end of 30 Rock this week:

Typical Lutz: always eating/drinking
Typical Kenneth: always wearing his uniform

But, seriously folks, who can ever forget this:

Thanks for the laughs, Tina. Just make sure you don’t choke on your own tears. We want you to stick around for a while…
