Sure, they’ve been chummy over the years. But come Feb. 12, Tina Fey and Betty White will become competitors as they vie for the 2012 Grammy Award for best spoken word album.

Both actresses earned Grammy nominations Wednesday night for narrating the audiobook versions of their memoirs – Fey, 41, for Bossypants, and White, 89, for If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won’t).

Both women, of course, have been nominated for – and won – a number of Emmys, but these are their first Grammy nods.
