"Glad we could get you thru middle school." -Tina Fey ( May be best line yet…) #GoldenGlobes

Oh, dear. Looks like two generations of liberal femme comedy writers stepped on each other’s stiletto-ed toes at the Golden Globes tonight. During her first of two acceptance speeches for awards, “Girls” creator Lena Dunham gave a backhanded compliment to her older competitors. Apparently, they helped get Dunham through “middle school.”
Tina Fey was not amused. Neither was her side eye.
"Congratulations Lena. Glad we got you through middle school." *inserts sideeye* -Tina Fey. #amazing

Yes Tina call Lena Dunham out for saying she watched the other nominees in middle school. She deserved it. #GoldeGlobes
