Kate McKinnon Gets Emotional During Golden Globes 2020 Speech for Ellen DeGeneres

Kate McKinnon gives a touching speech about Ellen DeGeneres‘ impact while introducing her win for the Carol Burnett Award at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 5) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“If I hadn’t seen her on TV, I would have thought ‘I could never be on TV. They don’t let LGBT people be on TV.’ And more than that, I would have gone on thinking that I was an alien and that I maybe didn’t have a right to be here,” Kate said during her speech. “She risked her entire life & her entire career in order to tell the truth and she suffered greatly for it. Of course, attitudes change, but only because brave people like Ellen jump into the fire … Thank you, Ellen, for giving me a shot at a good life.”

Kate‘s speech for Ellen quickly gained traction and gained praise on social media.

If you don’t know, Ellen publicly came out during her self-titled talk show in 1997. The show was cancelled soon after.

Ellen is the second ever winner of the Carol Burnett Award, with the first winner being Carol herself.

FYI: Kate is wearing Prabal Gurung.
