There were a handful of standout moments at the Emmys, but Kate McKinnon's speech might have been one of our of favorites. The Saturday Night Live star was practically at a loss for words when she accepted her first Emmy for best supporting actress in a comedy. Even though she was holding back tears, she still managed to make the crowd laugh by casually thanking her most notable celebrity impersonations, Ellen DeGeneres and Hillary Clinton.
Needless to say, it wasn't long before both of the ladies gave her a shoutout on social media. Not only did the host give a witty response, but the presidential nominee also whipped out the perfect GIF.
Kate McKinnon! I'm so happy for you. You deserve it and so much more. And not just because you thanked me. #Emmys— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) September 19, 2016
Congratulations on your Emmy, Kate! Big fan of yours, too. pic.twitter.com/w00QO1GwyH— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 19, 2016
