“That’s spicy,” she told EW.

Maya was in the middle of recording a panel discussion with Emmy nominees, as she is coincidentally nominated for playing Kamala on SNL.

Angela Bassett found out on the call and shared it during the Zoom.

“Oh s–t,” Maya said.

“Somebody’s gonna be very busy now,” Wanda Sykes teased.

“Ruh-roh,” Maya went on to say.

“I love going to the show. Any excuse I can get, I love. I just didn’t really anticipate traveling during a pandemic, but if there’s anyone that can work it out I’m sure Lorne [Michaels] has some sort of invisible helicopter that can get me there,” she joked.

“Ever since I was a kid, truly, I wanted to be on any kind of SCTV, Saturday Night Live, and I can’t believe that I got to work there, and I can’t believe that it’s my family still. I’m so thrilled to even be associated with the show and that I got to go back. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving. Honestly, it’s my favorite place to play.”

“I’m as surprised as you are, guys. That’s spicy,” she added.

“I don’t know that I’m ready to go right this minute, but it’s so nice to have this nomination be associated with the show because it’s my true love.”
