Tina Fey Will Receive “PEN” Honor

Two-time Golden Globe-winning comedy writer and actress Tina Fey will receive the “2023 PEN/Mike Nichols Writing for Performance Award” at the 50th annual PEN America Literary Awards, taking place in New York on March 2. Fey will be recognized for her comic writing legacy, as the fifth recipient to receive the award honoring a groundbreaking writer whose transformative work inspires audiences in the spirit of the late director Mike Nichols Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), The Graduate (1967), Silkwood (1983), Working Girl (1988), Postcards from the Edge (1990) and Closer (2004) …) “It’s been a lifelong dream to have my name associated in any way with the great Mike Nichols,” Fey said in a statement.
