‘Saturday Night Live’ is aiming to win a comedy guest acting Emmy for the fourth year in a row
The comedy guest categories have been Emmy gold mines for “Saturday Night Live” since hosts were allowed to compete there 10 years ago. The show has collected 10 victories in that timespan — five in each category — and it’s bidding to continue its streak of winning at least one of the two races for the fourth consecutive year.

Since 2009, there have only been two years in which “SNL” did not win at least one of the two guest categories, 2013 and 2015. Melissa Leo (“Louie”) and Bob Newhart (“The Big Bang Theory”) prevailed in 2013, with the latter finally winning his first Emmy, and Joan Cusack (“Shameless”) and Bradley Whitford (“Transparent”) triumphed in 2015. Cusack had the rare fortune of no female “SNL” hosts being nominated that year — something that has also only happened once, in 2010, on the comedy guest actor side.
