Quick Facts About Kate McKinnon

|Net Worth||$9 million|
McKinnon is the first SNL actor to win an Emmy since Dana Carvey in 1993. She began impersonating Kellyanne Conway after the election, alongside Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. On February 11, 2017, she debuted her Elizabeth Warren impression during the Weekend Update. McKinnon is well-known for her character work and celebrity impressions of Justin Bieber, Ellen DeGeneres, and a variety of political figures. She has six Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
Kate McKinnon Elizabeth Warren
Elizabeth Warren, a former presidential candidate, has dropped out of the race, but she is taking it all in stride. On March 7, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live, where she met her doppelgänger, Kate McKinnon. The on-air union was lovely, but what happened behind the scenes was even more so.
Elizabeth and Kate took the “Flip the Switch” challenge on TikTok. It entails standing with someone in front of a mirror while listening to Drake’s 2018 song “Nonstop.” In Elizabeth and Kate’s version, they wear the same outfit and dance in the background alternately. It’s a true gift, especially since we get to see Elizabeth show off her moves while Kate tries to hold back her laughter. And, yes, Drake did see the video.
Kate McKinnon Ghostbusters
She co-starred in the Ghostbusters reboot in 2016, alongside Melissa McCarthy and fellow SNL cast members Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones. She portrayed Dr. Jillian “Holtz” Holtzmann. Abby Yates and Erin Gilbert are estranged friends and particle physicists in New York City. They co-wrote Ghosts from Our Past, a book about their paranormal investigations since high school. Erin persuaded Abby to stop republishing the book after she republished it. Their vlog has gone viral, and the trio has been fired as a result.
They set up a temporary headquarters above a Chinese restaurant after stealing equipment. They develop ghost-tracking technology and hire jock Kevin Beckman as a receptionist. Rowan’s vortex will attempt to circumnavigate the apocalypse by breaching a ghostly afterlife dimension on the point. The team employs the Ecto-1’s reactor as a makeshift bomb, detonating a nuclear explosion within the vortex to photonically reverse it.
Kate McKinnon Hallelujah
On November 12, 2016, the first show following Clinton’s election loss, she reprised the role to open the show with a solo performance of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which was announced two days before her performance.
Kate McKinnon Rudy Giuliani
McKinnon joined the “SNL” family in 2012 as the show’s first openly gay female cast member, and she quickly won fans with her impersonations of Hillary Clinton, Justin Bieber, and, most recently, Rudy Giuliani.
Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon
Kate McKinnon told Refinery 29 in 2016 that she and her former “SNL” co-star became “sisters for life” after filming “Ghostbusters.” “Leslie and I have been working together at ‘SNL’ for two years,” McKinnon explained. “By the time we got there to film, we were very close and got so much closer, pathologically closer, over the course of the summer.” We’re delighted to hear it!
The ladies’ friendship has grown so close that a rumor circulated in January 2021 that the two were married! Snopes reports that a deceptive online ad depicted Jones and McKinnon kissing with the caption “[Pics] Celeb Couples We Totally Forgot Were Married.” To add to the confusion, a second advertisement with the same image and click bait title, “17 LGBTQ Celebs Who Overcame Many Obstacles and Eventually Became Couples,” appeared online.
Kate McKinnon Bari Weiss
When they were both undergraduates at Columbia University, Bari Weiss, the New York Times columnist famous for being a Jewish woman who does not want any more rights than she already has, dated Saturday Night Live comedian McKinnon. In a Vanity Fair profile, the provocative writer confirmed what had previously been rumored — that she and McKinnon dated on and off for years in college and still maintain a friendship. It’s exciting news for any lady who wants to bed a public intellectual who wants to put a stop to believing abused women.
