‘Saturday Night Live’ breaks own impressive record and now has 78 Emmys through 44 seasons

Add two more Emmy Awards to the extraordinary collection accumulated by “Saturday Night Live” since 1975. The veteran NBC variety program won its 77th Emmy for Best Variety Sketch Series and 78th Emmy for Best Variety Series Directing on Sunday night. That brings the show’s impressive overall total to 78 trophies for Lorne Michaels and his many team members.

At last weekend’s Creative Arts Awards, “SNL” won for its lighting design, makeup, production design, and for the “Creating Saturday Night Live” short form series. That pushed the number to 76 for its 44 years on the air. No guest actors prevailed, although it had many chances with Sandra Oh, Emma Thompson, Matt Damon, Robert De Niro, John Mulaney and Adam Sandler all nominated. For this week’s ceremony, they lost out for Best Comedy Supporting Actress (Kate McKinnon) and for Best Variety Series Writing.
