“Look forward to it!” Donald Trump tweeted today in making the announcement that he’ll be hosting “Saturday Night Live” on November 7, almost exactly one year before the presidential election on November 8, 2016. By hosting NBC’s long-running “SNL,” will the former star of “The Apprentice” finally win the Emmy Award that has eluded him for the past decade?

“I got screwed out of an Emmy,” Trump said back in January about the time when the breakout first season of “The Apprentice” lost Best Reality-Competition Series to “The Amazing Race” in 2004. “Everybody thought I was gonna win it. In fact, when they announced the winner, I stood up before the winner was announced. And I started walking for the Emmy. And then they announced the most boring show on television, ‘The Amazing Race.’ Piece of crap.”

Trump last hosted “SNL” in April 2004, though he’s been a fixture on the program over the years thanks to Darrell Hammond and now Taran Killam constantly portraying the reality host-turned-presidential candidate in sketches.

NBC also announced today that Sia will be the episode’s musical guest. It will be her second time at bat.

Ever since the TV academy allowed “SNL” guest hosts to compete in the Comedy Guest Actor/Actress races in 2009, we’ve seen a complete overhaul of those categories. Below, a list of all of the “SNL” hosts that won Emmys over the past seven years … and those that lost.
