Tina Fey and Amy Schumer Make Out at the Peabody Awards
Tina Fey and Amy Schumer pulled a Britney and Madonna last night in New York at the Peabody Awards. Fey was on stage to introduce Schumer, who was being honored with a Peabody for her work on her Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer.
During Fey’s speech, the Upper Darby comedian praised Schumer, saying, she “is killing it, as the agents like to say. Usually they are lying. But in this case it is true. Amy is killing it. She is the biggest deal in comedy right now,” writes the Hollywood Reporter. “I really wanted to come down here tonight, and in a Madonna kind of way try to like feed off of her youth and maybe suck her soul out in a very awkward, staged lesbian kiss.”
And as you can imagine, that’s just what happened when Schumer finally came out. The Daily Mail describes the intimate details:
The women started with a light peck at a respectful distance before transitioning into what resembled a passionate make-out session.
They pressed their faces close and wrapped their arms tightly around each other.
Tina, 45, also held up her hand for a high-five from Amy, 33.
Ooh la la. There’s no video of the smooch yet. Some folks in the audience did grab photos, though:
