Kate McKinnon brought a special plus-one to the Emmys, her girlfriend.

Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was among the memorable figures frequently spoofed by two-time Emmy Award victor Kate McKinnon on "Saturday Night Live".

Abbott describes herself as an actor, photographer and clown. Born in Stamford, Connecticut, she graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where she "studied with Olympia Dukakis and worked for Susan Sarandon".

The duo were last spotted out together backstage at the hit musical Fun/Home on Broadway at The Circle in The Square Theatre on April 10, 2016 in N.Y.C.

"RuPaul's Drag Race" star Michelle Visage shared a photo on Instagram of herself with McKinnon and Abbott.

The 33-year-old actress won for her role on Saturday Night Live, where she often impersonates the former presidential candidate.

Clinton included her reaction to McKinnon's portrayal in the chapter titled "Grit and Gratitude".

Other nominees in the category were McKinnon's Saturday Night Live costars Vanessa Bayer and Leslie Jones along with Anna Chlumsky of Veep and Transparent's Kathryn Hahn and Judith Light.
