So ... was Tina Fey joking or not? In her acceptance speech for best actress in a TV comedy, she called out Internet blog posters by name, telling them -- who had allegedly bashed her in comments on sites such as The Envelope -- to "suck it."
Here's what she said from the stage:
"I want to say thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press. I'll always love the Hollywood Foreign Press and have all the Hollywood Foreign Press action figures. Thank you, Will Arnett, for that joke. But I want you to really know how lucky I am to have the year I've had this year and, if you ever start to feel too good about yourself, they have this thing called the Internet! You can find a lot of people there who don't like you! I'd like to address some of them now! BabsonLacrosse, you can suck it. DianeFan, you can suck it. Cougar Letter, you can really suck it 'cause you've been after me all year. And to my husband, Jeff, I love you. Thank you very much! "
Was that a gag, or does she really read these blogs and take it personally?
Apparently she does read them, because when asked backstage in the press room after that speech, she recited exactly what some of those online posters has written about her ...
