"And, so if you have somebody who's just very talented, very happy to let other talented people do their job, good at delegating, that's all going to trickle down … I think we've all been very lucky that the person at the top knows what she's doing, knows what she wants, and makes it happen."
Wiping away tears, Jane Krakowski additionally said of Fey, "She has gone through a phase in her career where her light shone so brightly. And she shared her light with all of us, which is really sweet of her." Tracy Morgan also got emotional when appearing at the end of the video, calling his colleague "a champion."
