New York, Dec 24 (ANI): Tina Fey has been named Entertainer of the Year by The Associated Press.

The 38-year-old comedian gained instant fame for her impersonation of Alaska governor Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live.

Fey’’s five appearances on the late night comedy were watched by millions on TV and on the Web.

“She simultaneously entertained us with her wit and put a mirror up to the nation during the election and made us think about what was going on,” the New York Daily News quoted Scott Shive, assistant features editor at the Lexington Herald-Leader, as saying.

Second place in the voting, conducted by the AP among newspaper editors and broadcast producers, went to Robert Downey Jr., who starred in the blockbuster hit “Iron Man.”

Late Aussie actor Heath Ledger, who gave a stirring performance as the Joker in “The Dark Knight,” came third. (ANI)
