One SNL celeb just won her first Emmy!


It seems to be that Amy Poehler is always a nominee but never a winner, similar to Leo DiCaprio. Now the tables have turned when she finally won her first Emmy last night at the Creative Arts Awards. She won the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series award, for her appearance on SNL.

She’d previously been nominated eight times for an Emmy in various categories. Six of those eight times she received a nomination for playing Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation. She never took the statue herself but she did win a Golden Globe in 2014.

Jessica Jones also won its first Emmy for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music and the comedy-action TV series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was awarded for Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Edition for a Comedy Series.

Fans took to Twitter to show their appreciation for the comedian:

Game of Thrones won two awards last night for Costumes for a period fantasy series and Casting for a Drama Series. American Horror Story won Costumes for a Contemporary series, for the season Hotel.

The Primetime Awards will commence on Sunday 18 September and we are so excited to see who wins some of these awards!
