On Tuesday, Emmy-winning comedienne Tina Fey was voted “The Associated Press’ Entertainer of the Year,” an annual honor given to the star who has had the year’s greatest impact on culture and entertainment, as selected by newspaper editors and broadcast producers across America.
The 38-year-old 30 Rock star most impressed voters largely with her spot-on impression of Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live.
“Tina Fey is such an obvious choice,” said Sharon Eberson, entertainment editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “She gave us funny when we really needed it and, in a year when women in politics were making huge strides, Fey stood out in the world of entertainment.”
