Flashback '07: Globes Host Tina Fey

After making a name for herself at Saturday Night Live as one of the funniest women in entertainment, Tina Fey created 30 Rock, which has been the recipient of a handful of Golden Globes. However, before any of those awards were bestowed to Fey and the cast, the comedian shared a unique moment with ET's Mark Steines.
Following the creation and launch of her comedy series in Fall 2006, Fey and the 30 Rock gang received plenty of compliments on the new show. While Fey hadn't been nominated for any awards at the ensuing 2007 Golden Globes, her co-star Alec Baldwin had been nominated for Best Actor while the show was in the middle of its first season.
"We're having a great time doing [the show] and I'm so excited that Alec is nominated tonight," she says.
As that year was her first year on the Golden Globes red carpet, Fey seems a bit overwhelmed by the grandiosity of the pre-awards show festivities as she is interviewed by Mark Steines for the first time.
However, the comedic actress loosens up and puts her funny side on display when it's time for her and Steines to take a spin on ET's revolving fashion wheel.
There would be plenty more smiles for Fey that night, as Baldwin went on to win the Best Actor award. She would get her turn at an individual award the following year, but the best year of all for 30 Rock would come in 2009, when both she and Baldwin won individual awards and the show won Best Comedy Series.
30 Rock concluded last January after seven seasons and a long era of Golden Globes recognition. But while Tina Fey cannot call herself a nominee this season, she, along with comedy best friend Amy Poehler are back to host the show, following rave reviews of their team hosting gig last year.
You can laugh along when the Golden Globes air Sunday, January 12, 2014 on NBC.
