Sure, they've been chummy over the years. But come Feb. 12, Tina Fey and Betty White will become competitors as they vie for the 2012 Grammy Award for best spoken word album.

Both actresses earned Grammy nominations Wednesday night for narrating the audiobook versions of their memoirs – Fey, 41, for Bossypants, and White, 89, for If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't).

Both women, of course, have been nominated for – and won – a number of Emmys, but these are their first Grammy nods.





There are three other nominees in the category – an audio dramatization of The Mark of Zorro, featuring Val Kilmer, among others; a recording of Hamlet by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival; and a collection of reminiscences by Beatles fans called Fab Fan Memories: The Beatles Bond.

Jon Stewart won the 2011 Grammy for best spoken word album for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Presents Earth. Michael J. Fox won in 2010 for Always Looking Up.

Future president Barack Obama won in 2006 for Dreams from My Father.
