McKinnon is the first "SNL" actress EVER to win this award, only comparable to the legendary Gilda Radner who won an Emmy for her Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program in 1978.
Kate McKinnon joined the cast in 2012 and has become a staple for her spot-on Justin Bieber, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Hillary Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres impersonations, among others.
