Sarah Palin's Makeup Artist Nominated for Emmy

Remember during the final stretch of the 2008 presidential campaign, when FEC disclosure filings revealed the somewhat embarrassing news that Sarah Palin's highest-paid staffer was...her traveling makeup artist? Well, that makeup artist, Amy Strozzi, has since flourished. Yesterday, she was nominated for an Emmy Award for her makeup artistry on the Fox series, So You Think You Can Dance. It says so right here in Makeup Magazine (you don't subscribe?) and also on the So You Think You Can Dance blog, although neither makes the Sarah Palin connection. Still, congratulations to the talented Ms. Strozzi!
