Tina Fey: Unofficial Oscar Writer?

Let's see -- if you were Alec Baldwin, and you were rehearsing your jokes for the Oscars on Sunday, and your super-smart costar Tina Fey was just one dressing room away... what would you do? Naturally, you'd ask the 30 Rock creator to vet your act. And according to Fey, that's exactly what Baldwin did.

"He’s gotten 'the bounce' on a few ideas… Bounced them off of me," Fey has told Entertainment Tonight.

And what's her professional opinion? "I think they've got a good show."

Fey is also buddies with Baldwin's cohost, comedian and Oscar-hosting veteran Steve Martin -- he turned in a hilarious performance in her 2008 comedy Baby Mama, and played her love interest in a guest spot on 30 Rock. And of course, all three of them have a Saturday Night Love bond: Fey was head writer when she worked on the show, Martin is the most frequent guest host in the series' history (15 times), with Baldwin coming in a close second (14 times).

Fey told ET that she was psyched to see what Baldwin and Martin could get away with at Academy Awards: "I’m excited to watch Alec and Steve. They really are peers with everybody in the room, so I think they’ll be able to joke around and tease everybody the way a regular comedian from the outside could not."

Celebrity inside jokes? Count us in! The 82nd Academy Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday on ABC.
