Maya Rudolph wins her 2nd Emmy this week for playing Kamala Harris on ‘SNL,’ defeating herself
Maya Rudolph won Best Comedy Guest Actress for “Saturday Night Live” at the Creative Arts Emmys that aired on Saturday night, September 19, on Fxx. She won for playing Senator Kamala Harris in the episode hosted by fellow Emmy winner Eddie Murphy.

Voters probably considered all of Rudolph’s guest appearances as the California senator over the past season, but her official submission is the Murphy episode from December 2019 in which she appears briefly in the cold open, a parody of one of the Democratic debates. Near the end of the sketch, she walks onstage, martini in hand, to interrupt presidential candidate Andrew Yang (played Bowen Yang), lambaste America for withholding its donations from her, and remind us that Americans “could have had this bad bitch.” Rudolph also appears in a later sketch as the Murphy’s beleaguered wife while both of them struggle to deal with family during the holidays.
