Tina Fey can add another Emmy to her awards case but she might need to thank former Gov. Sarah Palin for this one.

The writer/actress was awarded an Emmy (her sixth – yikes!) for Guest Actress in a Comedy Series on Saturday for her portrayal of the former vice presidential candidate. As we all remember, Fey’s appearances on Saturday Night Live had the entire country talking.  Many even suggest that Fey’s impression led to serious doubts about Palin’s electability.  And we all know how that turned out.

In her speech, Fey said, “Mrs. Palin is an inspiration to working mothers everywhere because she bailed on her job right before Fourth of July weekend. You are living my dream. Thank you, Mrs. Palin!”

Fey also thanked her parents, who are lifelong Republicans, for their patience.

Fey’s hit show, 30 Rock, is up for a record 22 Emmy awards next week.
