Lists about Saturday Night Live cast members, hosts , musical acts, and backstage antics of America's favorite sketch comedy series, airing from 30 Rockefeller Plaza since 1975. In the early days of SNL , guest hosts were often comedians like George Carlin, Lily Tomlin, and Richard Pryor. In the many decades since, SNL hosts have included everyone from Oscar- winning actors to singers and musicians, professional athletes, and even politicians.

Dave Chappelle has won his first Emmy . At the ceremony last night , he took home the Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for his post-election “ SNL ” monologue—his debut on the show—in which he lamented Trump’s win , saying, “We’ve actually elected an internet troll as our president.” ( Chappelle concluded, “I’m going to give him a chance”—though he’s since said that was a mistake.) Elsewhere in the speech, he discussed mass shootings, anti-Trump protests, the death of Harambe the gorilla, and Black Lives Matter. Revisit the segment below.

Saturday Night Live (also known simply as SNL ) is an American late- night live television sketch comedy and variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol.

Chappelle hosted the first " SNL " episode to follow last November's presidential election. McCarthy played host on another episode and also gave a manic impersonation of then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer. The guest actor winners for a drama were Gerald McRaney for his role on "This Is Us" — his first Emmy award, coming at age 70 — and Alexis Bledel for "The Handmaid's Tale." Both were on hand to accept their awards, while Chappelle and McCarthy skipped the event.

All the awards, except for that earned by Foy, went to Black actors. While that appeared to signal a trend toward diversity for this year's Emmys, the guest actor awards have proved more inclusive than the top acting honors in recent years.

The creative arts awards were presented in non-televised weekend ceremonies that will be part of a special Saturday on FXX. The awards are precursors to the main Emmys ceremony airing Sunday, Sept. 19, on CBS, with Cedric the Entertainer as host.

Emmanuel Acho, executive producer of “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” which won for short form nonfiction or reality series, wore a suit that bore that names of Black Americans killed at the hands of police.

“The Queen's Gambit,” a coming-of-age tale set in the world of championship chess, emerged with a leading nine creative arts awards, including for best casting, cinematography and music composition for a limited or anthology series.

Rudolph beat Jessica Walter, who secured a posthumous nod for her work on FX’s Archer, Stacey Abrams for her work on Black-ish, Julie Andrews for her work as Lady Whistledown on Bridgerton, Central Park’s Tituss Burgess and Stanley Tucci and Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane.

The Emmy nominations offered a few surprises this year, but there’s one thing voters are consistent about: they love “ Saturday Night Live .” Since 2009, half of the Emmys awarded in the guest actor /actress comedy slots have gone to hosts of the popular sketch program. That includes last year’s winners Dave Chappelle and Melissa McCarthy, who won after three previous hosting noms. This year sees a small drop from last year, when five of the 12 nominees were “ SNL ” hosts , but still yields four nominees: Tiffany Haddish, Tina Fey, Bill Hader and Donald Glover were all recognized for

McCarthy also notably portrayed now-former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on SNL on several occasions, winning raves for her impersonation. She brought out the character for her May 13 hosting gig, which marked her fifth time

“The Mandalorian,” a live action series set in the “Star Wars” universe, was in second place (tied with “Saturday Night Live”) with seven awards. It's vying for best drama series honors next weekend, while “The Queen's Gambit” is a best limited series contender.

Streaming services dominated the awards tallies so far, with Netflix on top with 34 honors, followed by Disney+ with 13 and HBO Max combined with cable channel HBO at 10.

Other weekend winners included “Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square” as best TV movie; Lateef Crowder for best stunt performance and Ryan Watson, stunt coordinator, both for “The Mandalorian”; the James Corden-produced “Carpool Karaoke: The Series,” for best short form comedy, drama or variety series.
