‘Saturday Night Live’ extends Emmy record after Creative Arts Awards: It has more wins than any series in history

Saturday Night Live” may not have won Best Comedy Guest Actor or Best Comedy Guest Actress at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys on Sunday night, September 15, but it did win enough times on Saturday to extend its all-time record. It’s the most honored program in Emmy history, and it has now won 76 times in its 44 years on the air. Scroll down to see every single award it has won thus far, with possibly more to come next weekend on September 22.

At Saturday night’s Creative Arts Awards, “SNL” won for its lighting design, makeup, production design, and for the “Creating Saturday Night Live” short form series. That brings the show to a grand total of 76 awards in its 44 years on the air. On Sunday night it was nominated six times for guest acting: Sandra Oh, Emma Thompson, Matt Damon, Robert De Niro, John Mulaney and Adam Sandler all contended for their guest performances on the show, but none of them won, perhaps splitting their votes and allowing “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” guests Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby to prevail instead.

But don’t cry for Lorne Michaels and company. “SNL” is still the heavy favorite to win Best Variety Sketch Series for the third year in a row and for the fifth time overall. The show won Best Variety Series in 1976 and 1993, and then after the category was split between talk shows and sketch comedies “SNL” won again in 2017 and 2018. “SNL” came into the 2019 awards with 18 nominations overall, more than any other sketch comedy series by far, so it may still be poised for another win in the top category, and breakout star Kate McKinnon may win Best Comedy Supporting Actress for the third time following her victories in 2016 and 2017.
