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 Emmys and 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 and she was new to the awards show scene, 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. And while the show endured a drought at the Emmys and Globes in its later seasons, Fey and her team have managed to rack up many nominations in every single year they've found themselves in awards contention.
30 Rock concluded in January after seven seasons, and Fey has one last chance to add a second Lead Comedy Actress Emmy to her trophy case for 30 Rock.
