The inexplicable addiction to Buzzfeed quizzes and their curious results is baffling even to celebrities -- specifically Ellen DeGeneres and her Thursday guest Chelsea Handler.  The time-sucking, nonscientific questionnaires enlist quiz-takers to choose from random groupings of items to determine nonessential personality traits. While they're pretty fun and wildly habit-forming, they've also polluted just about every social-media feed and even sparked the comedic ire of some of the first ladies of comedy.

Los Angeles Times fashion critic Booth Moore just listed Tina Fey, clad in a custom blue Narcisco Rodriguez gown, as one of the Emmys' best dressed Sunday night, and her makeup fell right in line with her look. Fey's makeup artist Gita Bass evened out her skin tone using Armani Luminous Silk foundation, and then added a warm glow with Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzing makeup base, which she swept onto Fey's cheekbones, forehead and temples. For a pop of color on the cheeks, Bass added Chanel Cream blush in Revelation 63. To create a soft smoky eye, Bass lined Fey's top and bottom lash lines with MAC Cosmetics eyeliner in Teddy (a bronze shade with gold flecks)

With the end of "30 Rock"in sight, Tina Fey is no doubt weighing her options for what she wants to do with her career next. She could always star in another movie, write another book or create another TV series. But on the 4th of July, she presented fans with a surprising new possibility: rapper. On Wednesday, "Community's" Donald Glover released a mixtape for free download through his website under his rap name Childish Gambino. The album, called "Royalty," features a host of guest rappers including RZA, Ghostface Killah, Beck and lesser known performers, such as Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q.

Ever since Vanity Fair put her on its January 2010 cover in what looked like a Wonder Woman costume, Tina Fey has seemed in danger of falling for the very canard she has spent a career satirizing: that a woman can "have it all" if she's willing to lose 20 pounds, show her breasts and regularly remind everyone that, although she writes and stars in an Emmy-winning TV show, she is still essentially a loser who eats a lot of cupcakes. (Just like, you know, Larry David does.) An excerpt from her new book in a recent New Yorker didn't help, with Fey assuming the position of agonized career mommy — why do so many people keep asking her if she is going to have another baby when having one is so hard?

Tina Fey is working on a "Mean Girls" reunion of sorts, but sadly it won't be in the form of another movie. That is so the opposite of fetch. The 2004 comedy, which will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in April, was adapted by Fey from Rosalind Wiseman's 2002 book "Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and Other Realities of Adolescence. " PHOTOS: Lindsay Lohan career retrospective The cult classic starred a pre-rehab Lindsay Lohan, now 27,  pre-"Notebook" Rachel McAdams, now 35, and the troupe of "Plastics" - pre-"Veronica Mars" Amanda Seyfriend and post-"Party of Five" Lacey Chabert.

George Clooney is planning "downright dirty" payback for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's Golden Globes gag about him, already humorously swiping at the women via his "Monuments Men" costar Matt Damon. Clooney, whose "Gravity" role played nicely into their joke about him rarely dating women his own age, put the women on notice last month following the memorable jape. More recently, he benevolently derided the hosts with stationery that he had made to impersonate Damon. "I've already started the ball rolling.

Viewership for Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards, the second year with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler throwing jabs at Hollywood, are likely up from last year, according to early household numbers from Nielsen. The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards on NBC drew a rating of 14.1 from households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets, up 8% from last year's rating. Though the early statistics aren't adjusted for time zones and therefore not very reliable, this means viewership could top last year's Golden Globes, which averaged 19.7 million people watching, according to the final numbers.
