THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100

Continue reading the list
    Tina Fey
    Creator/star, "30 Rock"

    As the four-time Emmy winner, 42, gets ready to end her juggernaut NBC series in early 2013, she can look forward to life after 30 Rock; things got a lot sweeter in September when she signed a four-year deal with Universal Television to create and potentially star in projects. Speaking of acting, Fey, 42, also is set to appear in the feature comedy Admission alongside Paul Rudd, due in March. And she's co-hosting the Golden Globes with pal Amy Poehler in January.

    Who gave me my first big break: Lorne Michaels. Everything I have, I owe to him, including $20.

    Toughest decision I had to make this year: To ask NBC to end 30 Rock after a final season of 13 episodes. I will miss our crew a lot.

    When I leave work each day, I can't wait to: Fall asleep on my children.

    My indulgence: I eat gold bricks.

    Totally starstruck around: Local New York City news anchors I met, Pat Battle and Sue Simmons, y'all!

    Best advice I've ever gotten: Make movies you yourself would actually want to see. Never cut funny.

    Top three shows on my DVR: Chopped. The Barefoot Contessa. Saturday Night Live.

    Embarrassed to admit I watch: Actually, I'm not embarrassed to admit I cried watching the iCarly finale.
