‘Saturday Night Live’ can rule the comedy guest Emmy categories yet again with a pair of deja vu wins
Saturday Night Live’s” domination of the comedy guest categories at the Emmys is serious business. Since the sketch series was allowed to compete there 12 years ago, it has claimed 12 Emmys — six in each category (love the symmetry) — and it could very well bump that number up to 14 this year.

Last year, “SNL” swept Best Comedy Guest Actress and Best Comedy Guest Actor for two former cast members, Maya Rudolph and Eddie Murphy, respectively, after a rare year in which it did not win at least one of the categories. In 2019, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” went 2-for-2 with Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby. It’s one of three years in which “SNL” got blanked in guest completely. The first was in 2013 when Melissa Leo (“Louie”) and Bob Newhart (“The Big Bang Theory”) triumphed over “SNL” rivals — the latter winning his long-awaited first Emmy. In 2015, Joan Cusack (“Shameless”) and Bradley Whitford (“Transparent”) scored trophies.
