Kate McKinnon on Sunday scored Emmys gold — and Hillary Clinton took notice.

At the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, McKinnon became only the fourth Saturday Night Live cast member to win an Emmy for their work on the show (and only the second woman, after Gilda Radner).

In her acceptance speech, McKinnon thanked the Democratic presidential candidate, whom she has been impersonating as part of SNL‘s coverage of the 2016 presidential race. Shortly after McKinnon’s win, Clinton responded to the shout-out on Twitter with congratulations of her own.

“Congratulations on your Emmy, Kate!” Clinton tweeted. “Big fan of yours, too.”

In one memorable SNL sketch earlier this year, McKinnon even did her Clinton impersonation alongside the politician herself.

The original late-night comedy sketch show from the one and only Lorne Michaels.
