With Kristin Wiig gone, the amount of SNL cast members I actually adore is pretty slim. But McKinnon -- who joined late last season as a featured player -- has hit almost all of her sketches out of the park.
This one's my favorite, where she pays Cecilia Gimenez -- the Spanish woman who painted over a portrait of Jesus -- on Weekend Update:
A huge bonus to how much I'm loving McKinnon is that she's the first openly lesbian cast member in SNL history (about time!). She was first seen on Logo's "Big Gay Sketch Comedy Show" back in 2007 where one of her best known characters was Fitzwilliam, a British boy whose only wish is to have a vagina. Hopefully she'll resurrect him on SNL...
