Tina Fey Stars In American Express Commercials During The Academy Awards

Last night during the Academy Awards, American Express launched the EveryDay Card, designed to reward Members for things they already buy, every day. Three TV spots featuring Tina Fey, created by Ogilvy & Mather and shot by Director Bryan Buckley, ran during the broadcast, and even though the Oscars provide a lot to tweet about, the Tina Fey work created a considerable stir in their own right.

Jimmy Fallon wrote: “Tina Fey’s Amex commercial is hilarious.#Oscars” America said: “Best part of the #Oscars was the #TinaFey #AmericanExpress commercial”… “Is it just me or are there more entertaining commercials for the Oscars than there were for the Superbowl? #TinaFey” And the Hollywood Reporter declared: “Showing a Tina Fey commercial during an awards show she didn’t host is just cruel.#Oscars”
