Golden Globes Battle: Lea Michele vs. Tina Fey

Golden Globes Battle: Lea Michele vs. Tina Fey-photo

Tina Fey and Lea Michele have a lot of similarities (both are brunette, New York-loving funny ladies) but the two are gearing up for a fierce battle at the Golden Globe Awards this Sunday as both were nominated in the "Best Actress in a Television Series- Comedy" category this year. Who will win– the golden-throated Glee star or the quick-witted 30 Rock powerhouse? We here at Celebuzz have crafted a guide to the two actress to help you guess who will walk home with a shiny new statuette.

Tina Fey

Why She Has a Chance: Tina, 40, has already bagged two Golden Globes for the "Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy" category (2008, 2009) and her work on the fourth (and fifth) season of 30 Rock has been solid. Tina also won the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2010 so her fancy awards might sway HFPA into giving her the award.

Why She Might Not Win: The writer-cum-actress has already been showered with awards for her work on the critically-acclaimed 30 Rock and the Globes may be looking for some fresh blood to honor.

Check out a clip of Tina in 30 Rock below.

Lea Michele

Why She Has a Chance: Lea, 24, was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2010 for her work on Glee and the HFPA might be willing to give her the award this time around now that she (and the show) have grown over the past year. Plus, Glee is the hottest thing on television right now and giving a Globe to Lea will breathe in some life to the sometimes-stale award show.

Why She Might Not Win: Lea's role on Glee has shrunk significantly over the past year which means that she has a less impressive body of work. The actress has also been battling rumors that she is a diva off-camera which might make it hard for HFPA to give her an award.

Watch a clip of Lea in Glee below.

    while lea is super talented in the musical department i think tina is the icing on the cake where comedy is concerned i don't care if she has won before she is clearly the most deserving in the category. lea isn't funny it is like comparing apples and oranges really

    I wonder how some people can make an opinion about Lea Michele if they don't even watch the show.

    Okay. A lot of these comments are one sided. I love Glee, but I also love 30 Rock. It seems that the Glee fans are more younger, and easily entertained and the 30 Rock fans are more into clever comedy. That being said, Lea is a very talented actress, regardless of what show she is on. But when pitted against Tina Fey, aka the Queen of Comedy, Tina wins 10 times out of 10. Tina may not be able to sing as well, but she is an absolute comedic genius and an extremely skilled actress, whereas Lea is a amazing singer and a inexperienced, yet talented, actress. Tina Fey should win... If it were just between the two of them. I really don't know the rest of the nominees. :P

    Lea hands down, she is an emerging major talent. She is amazing.

    And as far as the GG's go. I think Lea is an extremely talented actress/singer even though Glee certainly has it's flaws. I would be happy to see her when though. She works hard & she's deserves it imo. Tina is funny too, but she doesn't really have much range. And as for anyone being a "diva," if you choose not to award someone's talent on ragmag rumors then you have no business giving them out at all. Do you really believe in what you said? I mean I'm not a Fey's fan and I don't really like her but how dare you? Michele is just a singer/some actress she's useless most of the time you can't call her classy, or gorgeous. Also, Tina has more talents than Michele but you pretty much ignorant and don't know this fact. You can't compare them, Fey will always be > Lea Michele. And it's not about popularity. It's about quality.

    Glee's stupid even for a fictional story. Admit it. You're protecting the show because somehow you know I'm right and you may look as an idiot because you love G/LM/whatever. For you important to prove me wrong. Uh yea, I like Lea Michele and yea, I watch Glee. I don't always love the show. I think sometimes the stuff on it is pretty lame, but I still enjoy the majority of it. I have no problem admitting it & I could give a sh*t less what you think about it. I wasn't defending Glee to you. I was stating that you're, quite frankly, being a dick. But you're certainly spending an insane amount of time on a show that you claim to dislike. So, who's the joke here? You can reply to this or whatever, but I'm done with it.

    It's not about popularity. It's about stupidity. Lots of stupid things are popular and Glee is one of them. Someone just should tell fans about it. Regardless of whether you like a show or not, you're kind of being a jerk. Glee is fictional, the people you're insulting are real.

    And glee fans ignore, chill, people like to tear down things that have become successful. It's not about popularity. It's about stupidity. Lots of stupid things are popular and Glee is one of them. Someone just should tell fans about it.

    Don't agree fine, but don't pretend your taste are better that others. I don't know if I should talk to a Glee fan. You can't be objective.

    I think Laura Linny will win, but I have no problem with Lea being nominated or winning. I think she does a good job with glee. Glee is a comedy with music and dramatic moments. It isn't everyone's cup of tea but no reason to join the the backlash against it. Don't like it fine, but do we really need to insult it or the people who do like it. And glee fans ignore, chill, people like to tear down things that have become successful.

    [b]Guest and stuff[/b] don't waste your time on Glee fans. They don't know anything about acting and talent. Get off you high horse just because you don't like it doesn't mean there aren't talented people on the show. I think there are a few who lack in acting skills, but Lea as Rachel works. Don't agree fine, but don't pretend your taste are better that others.

    [quote=Guest and stuff]Tina, obviously. Lea's not much of an actress. And just because you've won awards more than once doesn't mean you don't deserve another one... Jeez. And Tina Fey is a talented singer, and a writer and an actress and a producer. She can do a lot. Lea, on the other hand... And also, shouldn't the lead ACTRESS in a musical or comedy be able to... ACT? [b]Guest and stuff[/b] don't waste your time on Glee fans. They don't know anything about acting and talent.

    The character is really funny to bad it must be over your head. Unlike you I have good sense of humor. You like Glee, you shouldn't be allowed to even use the word "funny", you don't know what it is.

    I guess you can't read lead actress in a comedy or musical. Tell me she can[t sing and I will know you have mental problems. You like Lea Michele, you like Glee I suppose. Who have mental problems now? I can see how blatant Glee is.
