It's Official: Kate McKinnon Wins At Comedy
Last night, Kate McKinnon won the American Comedy Award for her hilarious work on Saturday Night Live.
After getting on stage, and mock-bawling, McKinnon thanked the crowd for her "non-Oscar."
"I really can't believe I get to be in this room tonight with so many people I admire, and I just want to say I'm currently being treated for pink eye," she said to a room full of laughs. "That's pink eye, the elementary school disease where filthy children go to the bathroom and then rub their eye."
McKinnon was up against fellow SNL player Vanessa Bayer, Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation, Chelsea Peretti of Brooklyn Nine Nine, and Julie Bowen of Modern Family.
