Kate McKinnon Continues To Dominate The Emmys With Second Big Win

For her outstanding work on Saturday Night Live playing Hilary Clinton during an election year, Kate McKinnon was recognised with her second Emmy for best supporting actress in a comedy series.

Being part of this season of Saturday Night Live is the most meaningful thing I will ever do. Congratulations to our incredible cast,”

During her acceptance speech, she also took a moment to specifically thank the former presidential candidate.

On a very personal note I want to thank Hilary Clinton for her grace.”

McKinnon – who is Saturday Night Live‘s first openly gay female cast member – back-to-back wins also makes Emmys history for S.N.L., which has actually seen very few of its regular players nominated (let alone win).

Can You Guess Which Celebrity Impression Kate McKinnon Did To Get Her Spot On ‘SNL’?

Before Kate McKinnon was Emmy winning, ghost busting and bad-ass she was, like many starry-eyed, young comedians, just trying to get an audition for Saturday Night Live.

In a recent interview PEOPLE, McKinnon revealed her nerve-wracking SNL audition.

It was very scary. If you’re a sketch comedian, SNL is the job you want to get. It’s so important in the history of American culture, and it was such an important part of my life growing up.”

McKinnon says adds

You’ve got five minutes to do whatever you want, so I did like five impressions and a couple of characters. I honestly don’t remember all of them. Penelope Cruz was one of them.”

The comic stars in the upcoming animated film Leap!, which is about an orphan girl who dreams of being a world-class ballerina.
McKinnon, who voices three characters, including the villain Regine, loved not having to worry about hair and makeup while working on the movie.

That is absolutely the best part. It’s nice to see a tale about a girl who is not trying to get married. She has a passion and something she wants to accomplish in the world.”

Top 5 Lesbian SNL Sketches, Ranked

We already know that Kate McKinnon is the best thing to ever grace our gay TV screens. And we know that Kristen Stewart’s visit to SNL turned us 200% more gay. But there’s no such thing as too much lesbian humor.

So let’s back at some of SNL’s best (and queerest) sketches, shall we?

5. Whiskers R We

Lesbians like cats. And repressed lesbians love cats.

In this recurring sketch, McKinnon and a female guest host play two middle-aged women who work at a cat rescue shelter. The female guest host always has an unrequited crush on McKinnon, which leads to lines like:

McKinnon: “That is my nipple and I think you know that.”
Wiig: “I think I know you like it.”

McKinnon: “Keep it in your jorts.”

Other great lines?

“Cats have paws, claws and 0 flaws.”

“This cat is a gift from God. At least that’s what he told the members of his cult.”

The good: Kristen Wiig pinching Kate McKinnon’s nipple on live TV.

The bad: They will put cats in your car when you’re not looking.

4. The Concert

Wow, has it already been nine years since Ellen Page came out as gay on SNL?

AKA, wow, has it already been nine years since we fell in love with Ellen Page?

In this sketch, she plays a young woman who has found herself (and a lot of lady lovin’) at a Melissa Etheridge concert.

At one point, Page splits her legs into a deep V and moans, “Why does everything have to have a label? Why can’t I just hug a woman with my legs in friendship?”

The good: Lots and lots of…friendship.

The bad: Andy Samberg and Ellen Page should switch haircuts.

Watch it here.

3. Dyke and Fats

In this homophobic, fatphobic world, who is humanity’s last hope? Les Dykawitz and Chubbina Fatzarelli, AKA the crime-fighting duo Dyke and Fats.

The good: This duo can save me anytime.

The bad: Is the world ready for a savior who’s not a straight white man?

2. Cherry Grove

When gay men have fun, they dance, strip, have crazy sex, start drama and wear a lot of glitter.

When lesbians have fun…they don’t. They do puzzles and have tearful arguments.

The good: Five miracles of home water birth.

The bad: What on earth are water socks?


1. Totinos

This is one of the only post-2012 lesbian sketches on SNL McKinnon hasn’t appeared on – and yet it’s the most gay.

A cheery housewife (Vanessa Bayer) is perfectly happy making pizza rolls for her “hungry guys” – until Kristen Stewart shows up in a leather jacket, and they start having sex on the counter. While speaking French.

The good: Pizza rolls.

The bad: The camera cuts away before we see them reenact Blue is the Warmest Color.

Kristen Stewart: ‘I’m Like, Soooo Gay Dude”

Kristen Stewart hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend and appeared in one of SNL‘s famous recurring Totino’s sketches.

The sketches satirise Super Bowl ads in which women are often forced into stereotypical wife roles.

SNL cast member Vanessa Bayer spruiks Totino’s pizza rolls, speaking about how she needs to feed her “hungry guys” until Stewart’s Sabine shows up and rocks her world.

The sketch’s second half turns into a hilarious riff on European art-house lesbian romances, all while promoting the snack food.

Melissa McCarthy’s Impression Of Sean Spicer On ‘Saturday Night Live’ Is everything

Melissa McCarthy made a surprise appearance as press secretary Sean Spicer during this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, and she was barely recognizable.

“Before we begin,” McCarthy-as-Spicer screamed, “I know that the press and myself have gotten off to a rocky start.”

“When I say rocky start, I mean it in the sense of Rocky the movie, because I came out here to punch you,” she continued to yell.

Watch the full sketch below:

‘SNL’ School White Americans With ‘The Day Beyoncé Turned Black’ Parody (Video)

This weekend Saturday Night Live kicked off with one of its funniest skits: a parody of white America’s reaction to Beyoncé’s new song Formation, a black power anthem featuring a Black Lives Matter-themed video and a Super Bowl performance with Black Panther Party-styled costumes.

The sketch essentially makes fun of the shock and awe surrounding Bey’s video, sarcastically poking fun at the fact that people seemed surprised to see the singer own her blackness.

It’s a wonderful, perfect SNL response to the media frenzy.

Tina Fey And Amy Poehler Go Sapphic In Hilarious SNL Sketch

Over the weekend, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to their old stomping ground last night to host Saturday Night Live together.

Our comedy heroes Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler, took over Saturday Night Live, and we still can’t stop re-watching the clips…

There was Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” parody was on point.


Everyone needs an Amy Schumer in their squad.


Fey and Poehler made sure to reprise their impressions of Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton in a sketch with gay actress Kate McKinnon.


In one, the two stars of Sisters were co-stars in a Carol-esque drama about two women who reveal they are ‘lesbian together’.


And finally there was Meet Your Second Wife – a textbook example of how to squeeze everything out of a simple premise by playing the ridiculous conceit straight and without embellishment.

Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein Campaign Gets the Kate McKinnon Treatment

Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein campaign got the Kate McKinnon and SNL treatment this weekend.

Kate McKinnon reprised her Bieber impersonation in sketch, which spoofs the much talked about black-and-white underwear campaign in singer did for CK, along with the Photoshop allegations that followed.


Cecily Strong also appears in the video as model Lara Stone, who has to put up with the pop star’s childish behavior.

We’ll let you decide which bit is best.

Meet ‘The Dudleys’, Saturday Night Live’s Alternative Sitcom Family

Meet the Dudleys! There’s Mrs. Dudley, Mr. Dudley, and their two loving daughters. Actually its Mr. Dudley, Mr. Dudley, and their two loving daughters. No, now it Mr. Dudley, a new alternative Mr. Dudley (this is getting confusing). Oh and is that Crazy Eyes from ‘Orange is the New Black’?


Guest starring Woody Harrelson, Uzo Aduba, and Saturday Night Live team, the sketch takes the Mickey out Twitter feedback and token representation. Parodying the network changes to a traditional sitcom to appeal to online complaints. The sketch lampoons stereotypical sitcoms, cynical business decisions, Twitter, and even snail mail.

However, when it receives so many makeovers that it is completely unrecognisable as the show it started out as, it then receives complaints from narrow-minded, homophobic idiots, and we are back to square one.
