Kate McKinnon, Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy, Saturday Night Live
Kate McKinnon had been nominated four times for her work on Saturday Night Live, but this marked her very first win. After besting Allison Janney, Anna Chlumsky, Gaby Hoffmann, Judith Light and Niecy Nash, an emotional McKinnon took the stage and in true form, made the audience laugh. “Thank you to the academy so much … Good sentence,” she said. The comedian went on to thank Lorne Michaels, all of her SNL colleagues, and, of course, two of her go-to impressions, Ellen Degeneres and Hillary Clinton. (Because why not?) Ending things on a sincere note, she thanked her mother, sister, and late father, who made her start watching SNL when she was 12. “Thank you and I miss you, pop,” she said before exiting the stage. So, to sum it up: It was funny, serious, and downright charming.
