Amy Schumer And Tina Fey Kiss At The Peabody Awards

Tina Fey congratulated Amy Schumer with a kiss at the Peabody Awards Sunday night in New York City.

"Amy Schumer is killing it, as the agents like to say," Fey said on stage at Cipriani Wall Street before presenting Schumer with her award, per The Hollywood Reporter. "Usually they are lying. But in this case it is true. Amy is killing it. She is the biggest deal in comedy right now."

Schumer was the reason Fey was willing to trek down to Lower Manhattan on such a rainy night: "I really wanted to come down here tonight, and in a Madonna kind of way, try to like feed off of her youth and maybe suck her soul out in a very awkward, staged lesbian kiss. But when I pitched that idea to Amy's camp, they came back with such an immediate yes that it kind of grossed me out."

Although Fey joked that the kiss "didn't feel right" to do when giving out such a prestigious award, it happened anyway.

Schumer, whose "Inside Amy Schumer" premiered on Comedy Central in 2013, thanked the network, her crew and the University of Georgia in her acceptance speech, the New York Daily News noted.

"We thought we were making this secret feminist show and people weren't going to catch on what we were doing," the star said.

People have definitely caught on.
