Live From the Emmy Press Room: 30 Rock

The cast of 30 Rock just popped up in the press room with a whole bevy of Emmys: one for Alec Baldwin (who is, yes, bowing down to Tina Fey in this image), two for Tina Fey, and still another one for the show as a whole.

Fey's two personal Emmys "look identical," she joked, but Alec Baldwin apparently told her that the acting award should mean that "I can stop apologizing for being an actor and being on the show. He wants me to stop apologizing the whole time!"

As for the Emmy for the show? "That one really belongs to everyone," she said, "so I don't like it as much." Ha!

There seemed to be a sort of mutual admiration society going on between Fey and Baldwin, with her crediting his acting abilities and him thanking her for coming up with the concept of the show. "The show was created by one woman," he said. "This is Tina's idea, this is Tina's thing, she is the head writer and is there every day, even the days she's not shooting as an actress. . . . The interesting thing is to me, there are a lot of good shows on the air right now. There's a lot of good comedy. I think we have the best writers, which I think says a lot right now."

As for what Baldwin thought of his own personal award,


Baldwin was pretty heavily favored to win, but he said he didn't expect anything. "I've done this enough — Emmy, Tony, Oscar — to know that when you go, you never ever believe you're going to win," he said. "I would have bet money Carell was going to win."

As for the differences between working in TV and in film, Baldwin said: "When you're on TV, you are in people's lives every week. When you shoot a movie, the movie comes out a year and a half later and — in my case the last six or seven years — a few select people saw the movie . . . With this, TV, people come up to me all the time, every day, all day long. They come up to me and say how much they love the show, which is really gratifying."

That picture of Alec Baldwin bowing to Tina Fey, he owes a lot to her. I really need to watch 30 Rock.

MY WOMAN! I love Tina Fey. I've always liked her, but I decided after last night that she's my new favorite actress/comedienne. I mean, her impersonation of Palin was spot on just like ALL her impersonations. Now I just need to find out when 30 rock is on and start watching it. I missed it when it first came out because I was hooked on the ill-fated Studio 60 from the sunset strip, but now that's cancelled. :( ( I LOVED THAT SHOW BRING IT BACK!)

What a great team. The mutual respect seems to be the key to making the show work so well. Very nice.

i really do think that it's great that this show has become so successful and that tina is getting the acclain that she deserves for the many hats that she wears on the set. i'm proud of her and the whole cast and i think that this picture really is a tribute to what they've done as a team!
