Tina Fey owes Sarah Palin; after all, it was Fey's spot-on impersonation of the former Republican vice presidential candidate that helped earn her an Emmy for"Saturday Night Live" in 2009. But this year, while Fey will almost certainly be up for television's top award again for her show"30 Rock," it's quite likely that another actress will get a nod for her Palin posturing.
And Fey couldn’t be happier for Julianne Moore, who nails Palin in the HBO movie "Game Change."
"She’s fantastic! She is so good," says Fey in a broad conversation with The Envelope. "I thought she was unbelievable -- she really did things with that role."
Moore came with one truly great advantage over her in creating the role, Fey says: "Julianne has a much more natural resemblance to her than I do. She has a stronger jaw line."
There’s really no way to compare the two performances, adds the comedian: "If we were doing anything similar, we both would have been doing something wrong."
