SNL wins best variety sketch series for the third time

Posted on

Live from New York, it’s this year’s Emmy winner for best variety sketch series.

Saturday Night Live won at Sunday night’s award ceremony, adding yet another trophy to its rapidly growing pile.

Said executive producer Lorne Michaels during his acceptance speech, “I remember the first time we won this award. It was after our first season in 1976 And I remember thinking as I was standing there alone that this was it. This was the high point. There would never be another season as crazy, as unpredictable, as frightening, as exhausting, or as exhilarating. Turns out I was wrong.”

This year, the long-running sketch-comedy show tied Westworld for the year’s most nominations with 22 — earning the most nominations the show has ever received in a single season. Ahead of Sunday’s ceremony, SNL had already picked up four wins at the Creative Arts Emmys, including Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Melissa McCarthy and Outstanding Guest Actor for Dave Chappelle.

SNL beat out fellow nominees Billy on the Street, Drunk History, Portlandia, Documentary Now, and Tracey Ullman’s Show.

This is the third time SNL has won best variety series.
