Chicago homegirls Oprah, Fey get award-show props

Only because this is a Chicago-based blog: Check out this odd little news item about our homegirl Oprah. Apparently, even though she's a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and thus an Oscar voter, she is being allowed to voice her editorial support for certain movies on her show — despite Academy rules forbidding voters to do just that.

Also, from the same site, more Chicago homegirl news: Tina Fey will host the 59th annual Writers Guild of America Awards on Feb. 11.

AS THEY SAY, RULES ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN AND IF ANYBODY CAN BREAK THE RULES, OPRAH WOULD BE THE ONE....I LOVE OPRAH, BUT I CAN'T IMAGINE HER NOT DOING WHAT SHE WANTS. AFTER ALL, SHE'S OPRAH....
THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD ! ! !

Tina Fey is from Upper Darby, PA.

[Editor's note: But she lived here and trained as an improv comedian for many years. We officially adopt her.]

Yet another example of how the rules that everyone else must abide by simply don't apply to Oprah! DS
