You may recall that Kate McKinnon, incredible comedic performer, Saturday Night Live star, and all around kween, recently took home a much-deserved Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, thanks to her superb performances on the sketch series.
In her moving and charming acceptance speech, Kate thanked Ellen Degeneres and Hillary Clinton (whom she frequently impersonates flawlessly), as well as her late father who introduced her to SNL when she was a child. It was beautiful.
For starters, she can’t remember any of it. She quips:
You are goals, Kate.
After you win the coveted award, the Emmy gets taken back temporarily — but Kate has no idea when or how she will get it, or where it even currently is.
But as she tells Jimmy in the above clip, pictures keep popping up on Facebook, showing other people holding her Emmy — some of whom she recognizes, and some not so much.
“It’s had some kind of adventure like the Travelocity gnome.”
And Kate’s analysis of the entire situation is ~truly beautiful~. She uses the talk show as a platform to reach out to her adventurous award:
If only we all treated our loved ones with such immense respect. Kate then tells Jimmy:
Congrats again, Kate! We’re sure you’ll be reunited with your Emmy eventually.
