  • 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.  Continue reading
