Tina Fey and Amy Poehler share creative arts Emmy gold as SNL hosts

Comedy duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are sharing Emmy gold as Saturday Night Live hosts.

They were honoured jointly in the best guest actresses in a comedy series category at Saturday’s creative arts Emmy ceremony.

Tina and Amy won as co-hosts of last year’s Christmas episode on SNL.

The pair didn’t attend the Los Angeles event, and Bob Newhart accepted the Emmy on their behalf.

The Emmy is the first for Amy, but part of a collection for Tina. She’s won eight times before, including acting and writing trophies.

The creative arts Emmys precede the main ceremony, which is scheduled to air on Sunday September 18.
