Kate McKinnon Is The First SNL Cast Member To EVER Win An Emmy For Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series — Watch Her Emotional Speech!

| Filed under: Emmys

Kate McKinnon SO deserves this!

At the 2016 Emmys, Kate won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on Saturday Night Live. The win is a BIG deal considering the comedienne is the first SNL cast member to win a supporting actress Emmy EVER!

We guess the actress has a thing for making history — she was the first openly lesbian member of SNL, after all!

Considering the magnificent weight of the win, McKinnon's speech was obviously very emotional. It's clear the funny gal was not expecting to walk away with the award!

One particularly poignant moment of the speech was when Kate paid homage to her mother and late father. The star noted how her beloved dad had her watching SNL at age twelve.

You can watch the aww-worthy speech (above)!

P.S. A shout out to the other nominees Niecy Nash, Allison Janney, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, and Anna Chlumsky.
