Tina Fey poses as Audrey Hepburn on the new Entertainment Weekly cover!

’30 Rock’ will end it’s seven-season run early next year. To celebrate the 10-Emmy-winning-comedy, Entertainment Weekly sat down with Rock’s creator and star, Tina Fey, for an interview. EW arrived on set just in time to watch a scene from the third episode of the final season (which will premiere on October 4 at 8:00PM), in which Liz Lemon is shocked to learn a secret about Tracy Jordan.

Explains Fey, “I discover that Tracy Jordan has tweeted, “I agree @theRealStephenHawking. Women are just not funny — never have been, never will be. #plotpoint.” (We won’t ruin the outcome for you, but suffice it to say that the resolution involves Lemon dressed in a lab coat and declaring, “Don’t thank me — thank Roe v. Wade!”)

Over the course of the two-day interview, conducted on Rock‘s set in Long Island City, Queens, Fey also looks back on her time as head writer at Saturday Night Live (fun fact: one of the sketches she submitted to land a job at SNL had “something to do with a legal trial about pudding”) and her transformation from frumpy behind-the-scenes writer to bespectacled “Weekend Update” sex symbol (“I think you should look back. There are some hair and some teeth problems”); breaking through into film with the screenplay for Mean Girls (“We had a lot of trouble with the MPAA with that movie”); and teaming with Amy Poehler and Steve Carell in Baby Mama (an underrated gem!) and Date Night, respectively. “I liked the opportunity to play a person who was married,” Fey says of Date Night, “as opposed to a rapidly decaying woman going on dates.” And of course we didn’t let her get away without giving us some scoop on 30 Rock‘s final season, which will involve a “sexual awakening” for Liz Lemon, a Skype conversation between Jack Donaghy and Ann Romney’s horse Rafalca, and the return of Matthew Broderick as Cooter. “I think it will be hard,” says Fey of ending the series. But there’s hope for us all, Fey fans, as it seems the 42-year-old multihyphenate isn’t done with the small screen just yet: “I would love to get another TV show on the air someday.”

NBC is gonna be hurting once ’30 Rock’ is gone!! Yikes!

PICS: 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards!

There were so many beautiful women at last night’s 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. ‘Mad Men’ and ‘American Horror Story’ led the race with 17 nominations each, but it was the casts of ‘Modern Family’, ‘Homeland’, and ‘Game Change’ that came away the big winners.

Here’s more on the awards ceremony from People:

Eric Stonestreet took home the first award of the night for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. In a repeat of last year’s early Emmys sweep for the series, Julie Bowen took home the best supporting actress award, marking her second consecutive win in the category, followed by the show’s co-creator Steve Levitan winning the Emmy for outstanding comedy direction. The cast closed out the evening the same way it began, with another win, this time for outstanding comedy series.

Newcomer Homeland had an incredible night following the show’s debut season. The Showtime series’ star Damian Lewis won the Emmy for the lead actor in a drama series – while his pregnant costar Claire Danes scooped up the best actress award. Homeland also took home the Emmys for outstanding writing and outstanding drama series.

After playing Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, Julianne Moore won her first Primetime Emmy for lead actress in a miniseries or movie. “I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down,” she said as she accepted her award. The political film – which won four awards total – also took home honors for outstanding writing, outstanding directing and outstanding miniseries or movie.

Two and Half Men‘s Jon Cryer won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy. “Don’t panic people, something has clearly gone terribly wrong. I am stunned, I didn’t actually win this – this did not just happen!” Cryer said, addressing his fellow nominees Don Cheadle, Louis C.K., Jim Parsons, Larry David and Alec Baldwin. Meanwhile, Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy.

Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul was stunned as he accepted his Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series. “I cannot believe I’m standing on this stage, let alone in this room,” he said. But before stepping down from the stage, the actor thanked his fiancée Lauren Parsekian. “You saved me,” he said.

Downton Abbey‘s Maggie Smith won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, beating out Archie Panjabi, Anna Gunn, Joanne Froggatt, Christina Hendricks and Christine Baranksi, but wasn’t present to accept.

While accepting the Emmy for outstanding variety series, Jon Stewart earned first-to-get-bleeped honors after winning his 10th consecutive Emmy for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.

And Jessica Lange stunned in red as she accepted the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or movie for her role as Constance Langdon in American Horror Story, while Kevin Costner took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in the same category for his role in Hatfields and McCoys.

I’ll be posting pictures from the red carpet, and here are the people I’ll be posting pictures of. Who was your best dressed from last night?

Why did Tina Fey skip out on Lindsay Lohan’s ‘SNL’ performance?

Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey go way back. Lindsay starred in Tina Fey’s “Mean Girls” back in 2004, and the ’30 Rock’ comedian has been one of Lindsay’s biggest supporters over the years.

Tina was reportedly planning on being there for Lindsay on Saturday night during her hosting gig, she even intended on appearing in Lindsay’s monologue. Instead she had to stay home with sick kids.

“Tina was committed to doing the monologue with Lindsay but both of her children got sick,” a rep for Fey told the paper. “She was unable to participate as planned.”

Lohan received mixed reviews for her performance on “SNL,” which drew a high number of viewers and was the second-highest-rated episode of the season.

WHOOPS! Fox News uses photo of Tina Fey for Sarah Palin story!

Props to SNL’s Tina Fey… because she can, apparently, do impressions of politician Sarah Palin so well… that even Fox News can’t even tell the difference between the two women! The news channel actually used a picture of Fey during a story about Palin!

While an anchor was discussing the widening field of 2012 Republican presidential candidates, a photo of Tina doing one of her Saturday Night Live spoofs of Sarah pops up on the screen.

In 2009, Fox News adopted a “zero tolerance” policy toward onscreen slip-ups. But this one is so funny, we don’t think anyone should get in trouble.

Check out the pic  above and see the video (via Crooks & Liars) here.
