Tina Fey's impression of Sarah Palin has made her a legend this year, and the Associated Press seems to agree: The AP named Fey its Entertainer of the Year for 2008.

She is the epitome of the smart kid coming out on top for once. The description of the award is "the performer who had the greatest impact on culture and entertainment" for the year, and Fey has undeniably done just that. From "30 Rock" and Baby Mama to her politically-relevant appearances on SNL before the election, it's been a big (and productive) year. She won three Emmys for her work on "30 Rock," which she created, writes for and stars in, and she was also nominated for a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild award. "Tina Fey is such an obvious choice," said Sharon Eberson, entertainment editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "She gave us funny when we really needed it and, in a year when women in politics were making huge strides, Fey stood out in the world of entertainment." But I think Scott Shive, assistant features editor at the Lexington Herald-Leader, sums it up best: "She is the epitome of the smart kid coming out on top for once."
