10 Times KateMcKinnon Was Already the Queen of Everything

Many are meeting her for the first time as a Ghostbuster, but Kate McKinnon was already the brightest star in our sky. 


It's official: now the world knows how much Kate McKinnon is the best thing that ever happened to it. With the gal-tastic Ghostbuster reboot opening in theaters last week, Kate is everywhere, and she's stealing everyone's hearts. Well, she already had ours after a brilliant stint on The Big Gay Sketch Show, a scene-stealing star turn on Saturday Night Live, and just generally being completely awesome. Here are 10 must-see Kate moments to take your obsession to the next level, or just to refresh your memory about why you love her so much. Enjoy!


10. It's pretty safe to say Ellen DeGeneres was the queen of everything, but then Kate McKinnon became her, so clearly our facts are in line here. 


9. "Well, Ellen's not the queen of everything - that's Hillary Clinton! " you might interject. Well, guess what America?!


8. She's not only an amazing comedian but an amazing human, and according to this lengthy interview about building things and bathing cats, an amazing lesbian. 


7. Because for many reasons, including this Justin Bieber Calvin Klein ad parody, SNL is #blessed by her presence.


6. She makes even SNL's strangest, almost nonsensical sketches cause us to experience the literal meaning of LOL. 


5. Is it possible Olya Povlatsky is Weekend Update's best guest? It's actually impossible that she isn't. 


4. Even before SNL, we knew Kate McKinnon was a magical unicorn when we saw her play Fitzwilliam, a young British child on the quest for a first-rate vagina, on The Big Gay Sketch Show.


3. Because every addition of "Whiskers R' We" is gay comedy gold. 


2. She starred as Cate Blanchett in a Carol parody that is so good we're still in tears about it. Also, the fact this literally happened at all makes life just a little better. 


1. There is actually nothing she can't do. She can do everything. Or, hey, she can definitely do impressions, but she can also probably do everything.


Okay world, now that you know Kate McKinnon, be sure to cherish her forever - and see Ghostbusters in theaters this week!
