Kate McKinnon Takes Home Her First Award At The 2016 Emmys

Comedian Kate McKinnon has been taking the media by storm, through her Ellen DeGeneres and Hilary Clinton impressions on Saturday Night Live to her incredible performance in the Ghostbusters re-boot this year. Through all of her hard work and ability to bring joy and laughter to millions of people, she finally took home her first Emmy award at this year's 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony! She won the 2016 Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Emmy Award.

While everyone is so happy for her win, people can't stop talking about her acceptance speech. She was so surprised that she blurted out, "I'm shaking!" while giving her speech, and even said that she was crying. She gave the normal "thank you's" to family and those who have helped her within the industry. She gave a shout-out to her now deceased father, explaining that he made her start watching SNL when she was 12. She also managed to fit in thanking the two celebrities that helped bring her to fame: Ellen DeGeneres and Hillary Clinton.

The best part? Hillary Clinton responded on Twitter that she's big fans of Kate, and offered her congratulations! She even posted a meme of Kate doing an impression of Mrs. Clinton. Check out the tweet from the presidential nominee below. 


Of course, Kate's acceptance speech (and Mrs. Clinton's reply) wasn't the only thing on point. Look at that stunning, classic red dress Kate wore to the Emmys! She rocked a low-cut bold red low cut v-neck dress with edgy cut-outs on the sides of the v-neck.

We're especially obsessing over this dress because it's an easy one to copy yourself for prom or homecoming. Check out four unique ways to rock Kate's Emmys look below.

La Femme 22276

For a v-neck red dress with similar cut-outs on the v-neck to Kate's style, go with La Femme style 22276. It's a glamorous jersey gown with a geometric cutout bodice. The gown also features an open keyhole back.

Faviana 7540

To rock a red v-neck dress with a slightly different, and totally unique, cut-out layout, we love La Femme style 7540. It's a full length evening gown that features a matching horizontal strap decor that adorns both the front and back of the garment. The deep v-neck of the bodice includes a sheer panel over which the straps cross, with similar straps traveling across the open back.

Faviana 7541

For a classic side cutout look, go with Faviana style 7541. It's a chic, figure flattering jersey gown that's perfect to stand out at any formal event, whether the red carpet, like Kate, or prom.

Sherri Hill 50644

Last, but not least, is Sherri Hill style 50644. It's a perfect choice if you love the bold red and deep v-neck of the Kate McKinnon Emmys 2016 dress, but want to keep the rest classic and simple (until you see the gorgeous open back!). It's a body hugging long racerback halter dress that features an open back and a beaded train.

No matter how you decide to wear a red dress like Kate's, it's a great way to stick out from the crowd in a totally classy way.

Congrats to Kate on her win! With the heated presidential election in full swing, we can't wait to see plenty more Hillary Clinton impersonations!
