Tina Fey Named Entertainer of the Year by Associated Press

The AP has named Tina Fey “Entertainer of the Year”, beating out Iron-clad rivals such as Robert Downey Jr. and
dark horse candidates like Heath Ledger.

But if 2008 was the year of Fey, she owes much of her recent fame to a woman with whom she shares, if nothing else, striking physical resemblance, a woman who also left “an indelible impression” on the American public this year: Gov. Sarah Palin  — Tina Fey’s doppelganger and comedic foil.

Tina Fey is the entertainer of the year? You betcha. Fey was voted The Associated Press’ Entertainer of the Year, an annual honor chosen by newspaper editors and broadcast producers across the country.

Fey was selected by AP members as the performer who had the greatest impact on culture and entertainment in 2008.

The 38-year-old comedian bested runner-up Robert Downey Jr., whose comeback was capped with the blockbuster smash “Iron Man,” and the third-place vote-getter, Heath Ledger, who posthumously wowed audiences as the Joker in “The Dark Knight.”
