To most of the world, Tina Fey’s stint as cohost of the Golden Globes was memorable for all the right reasons: Her one-liners killed; her chemistry with her former Saturday Night Live colleague Amy Poehler was palpable; and she looked fantastic.

“We did a total of nine minutes of material, probably,” Fey says of her onstage time with Poehler. “But people were so nice to us about it. I’m gonna ride that to the grave. I’m gonna be like, ‘Remember that time me and Amy told jokes for seven minutes?’ ”

But for one viewer – the comedian’s 7-year-old, Alice – her appearance on what the little girl dubbed the Trophy Awards didn’t exactly resonate. “She drew a picture of me and Amy in our gowns,” recalls Fey. “It’s a pretty good drawing, but she did these dialogue bubbles with big question marks in them. She was like, ‘They’re because I didn’t understand any of your jokes!’ “
