7 of 19: Maya Rudolph as a host on 'Saturday Night Live' on being nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series:

'I had so much fun hosting- it was like coming home. Getting to go back and play with your friends... there's nothing better. Hosting SNL was my childhood dream, while other kids were playing princess I was doing impressions of Roseanne Roseannadanna. This is an amazing honor and one I share with Lorne, and all the incredible cast and writers of SNL,' the actress said in a statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.

This is Rudolph's first Emmy nomination.
