Tina Fey can dust off another place on her trophy shelf. The Kennedy Center is announcing Tuesday that the comedian will receive this year’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. And before anyone asks, let’s settle the question of honoring someone who’s a mere 40 years old. “It does change the paradigm a bit,” said Mark Krantz, co-executive producer of the Twain salute. Fey is the youngest recipient in the award’s 13 years. “A lot of people felt it was a lifetime achievement award for an old person. It never has been. It is a prize, really, about somebody’s depth and talent.” Fey’s response to being chosen illustrates why audiences love this groundbreaking writer and actress. She said: “I assume Betty White was disqualified for steroid use.” – From Washington Post
