Gina Wilhelm Actress – Tina Fey Wins Best Guest Actress
Tina Fey received a best guest actress in a comedy Emmy for her imitation of Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live.”
The award was given as part of the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys, which were presented September 12.
At the same ceremony, Ellen Burstyn was given the prize for best guest actress on a drama for her work on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
Burstyn had received five nominations, but this was her first win.
These awards precede the main ceremony, which will be held next Sunday, September 20, and will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.
Fey has an opportunity to win more Emmys at that ceremony, where she is nominated for best actress in a comedy for her starring role in “30 Rock.”
