Tina Fey made her way to the Peabody Awards on a stormy Sunday night, just to hand Amy Schumer her Peabody Award—and also make out with her. While presenting Schumer with an award for her work on Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer, the 30 Rock creator revealed that she had pitched the idea that the two engage in a "very awkward, staged lesbian kiss," a la Madonna. Amy's people "came back with such an immediate yes that it kind of grossed me out." Of course, the comedians kissed anyway, but traded the awkward planned peck for a passionate, full-on make out.
