It was a bittersweet win for Tina Fey, as she took the stage to accept her SAG Award for the final season of 30 Rock yesterday — but that certainly doesn't mean we won't be seeing her soon. Back in the press room, Tina talked about her upcoming projects, including another television show she's currently developing and a new movie with her Date Night co-star Steve Carell. Watch to find out what Tina's up to next, and how she got ready for her big award night.
Today, the SAG Awards honoured the best actors and casts in both TV and film, and we were backstage to hear from the winners right after they snagged their statues. Ben Affleck, Tina Fey, Jennifer Lawrence and the cast of Downton Abbey were just some of the famous faces who stopped by the press room to reflect on their honours.

This season marks the end of 30 Rock, but cast member Katrina Bowden admits that there are some things about the show she will always keep with her — like the advice she received from the other women on set. "Tina [Fey] is such a great role model," she said last night at a dinner supporting celebrity colourist Beth Minardi. "Seeing her being so normal and down to earth and laughing at herself made me realise that you can be funny and beautiful and smart at the same time."
On the small screen, Katrina's character, Cerie Xerox, is all about her looks. But in the real world, the actress is far from vain. She describes herself as a laid-back girl who chooses flats over heels and jeans over dresses. Beauty-wise, her routine is all about basics — a little lip gloss, mascara, and a quick bun — except when it comes to her nails. "It's always my New Year's resolution to have better hands and cuticles," she said. Katrina keeps her hands soft with Laura Mercier Hand Cream and a monthly gel manicure.
"For beauty and for fashion, just do what feels natural to you," she advises. "Some people try to do what's in trend even if they don't like it, but I don't try to force myself to look a different way or do something I don't feel natural in." Even though she plays one foxy assistant on screen, Katrina says she doesn't focus on looks above all. "Being beautiful means to me feeling confident, whether it's about the way you look or being happy with the people around you," she says. "I think happiness makes you beautiful."

Tina Fey has welcomed her second child! The 30 Rock star’s rep confirmed that she gave birth to a baby girl, her second daughter, last Wednesday, and that the family’s newest addition has been named Penelope Athena. Tina and her composer husband Jeff Richmond also have a five-year-old daughter, Alice.
Tina revealed her pregnancy on The Oprah Winfrey Show in April and performed a hilarious SNL skit with her growing baby bump (and then-pregnant friend Maya Rudolph) in May. It was during this time that she was also promoting her book Bossypants, and in the memoir she addresses the guilt she felt about Alice not having a sibling. Not that she has to worry about that anymore — congrats to Tina and Jeff on their new addition!
