Comedienne Tina Fey crumbled under pressure when she was asked to name 20 Latino actors in 60 seconds. The SNL alumnae met with Billy Eichner for Tru TV’s Billy on the Street. Fey’s challenge was to give an award-winning acceptance speech by naming at least 20 Latino figures in the entertainment industry. She was off to a rocky start by forgetting the name of Jane The Virgin star Gina Rodriguez.

While she was able to remember that actor Freddie Prinze and his son, Freddy Prinze, Jr. are Latino, she struggled to name other prominent entertainers with whom she’s worked with personally over the years. She left out SNL veterans Horatio Sanz, Fred Armisen, and Salma Hayek, who she also worked with during her multi-episode guest spot on NBC’s 30 Rock. She equally bombed with “the guy from Law & Order,” before quickly remembering it’s Lou Diamond Phillips, of Filipino descent.
Two words: epic fail.
