New York Women in Film & Television emceed by Kristen Schaal

Hair, makeup and costume wizards were given New York Women in Film & Television’s Designing Women honors Thursday at the Variety, Hamptons Film Festival and Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences co-hosted event.

Emcee Kristen Schaal said of the “30 Rock” makeup honorees Jenn Jorge Nelson and Julie Teel, “Not one has complained about the extra time it takes to paint these giant cheeks of mine.”

As Tina Fey presented the awards to her “30 Rock” makeup duo, she quipped, “They made Tracy Morgan look like E.T. but he was supposed to look like a Caucasian woman! When I was six months pregnant, they turned me into a New Jersey shore skank — when we thought you had to hide being pregnant as a New Jersey shore skank.”

Fey also revealed that to be great in makeup, “You must have the patience of Job, the hands of a surgeon and the tactful, formidable demeanor of a prison gynecologist.”

Lady Rizo saluted the experts by noting, “If you don’t know how important wigs are, you should ask a drag queen — I am one!” (Actually, she’s not.) And Bennett Miller said that Kasia Walicka Maimone made Brad Pitt’s “Moneyball” wardrobe about much more than baseball.

Steve Buscemi gave out the Variety Ensemble Award to the costume, hair and makeup design team of “Boardwalk Empire,” honoring Francesca Paris, Michele Paris, Lisa Padovani and John Dunne, who noted, “As you may have noticed, I’m not a designing woman.”
