We're Lizzing with excitement! It's Tina Fey's birthday today, and in honor of the funny lady's 44th, we're celebrating her most beloved role: Liz Lemon on 30 Rock. During the show's run, Tina turned Liz into a TV icon for the modern woman. Liz is a confident and successful working woman and loyal friend, yet she's still hilariously self-deprecating in a relatable way. And we can appreciate her sense of humor about her dating life, which included a string of handsome goofball love interests played by the likes of Matt Damon, Jon Hamm, Jason Sudeikis, and James Franco. It was a fun run watching Liz find her own version of happily-ever-after. Now let's honor her with some of our favorite Liz Lemon GIFs. After all, there "ain't no party like a Liz Lemon party 'cause a Liz Lemon party is MANDATORY!"
