1) Kate McKinnon Makes History on SNL
The Big Gay Sketch Show alum Kate McKinnon made Saturday Night Live history when she was added to the long running comedy sketch show’s roster earlier this year, becoming the first out lesbian featured player. Since then, she has offered up some seriously funny impressions of Sofia Vargara, Penelope Cruz, Ann Romney, and even Ellen, to name only a few. And in recognition of her talent, she was recently named top dog on Forbes magazine’s annual 30 Under 30 list. McKinnon was given the ultimate compliment by Forbes staffer Michael Noer when credited her with being "the next Tina Fey."
