If you have talked to me in the last few days, it has probably been about Kate McKinnon. I saw Ghostbusters on Friday, and it’s been a full on love spiral ever since. There is a scene in the movie (not ruining anything here) where she has these blaster guns and goes nuts on some ghosts and I just lost my damn mind. It was so awesome.
In case you don’t know everything about her, like I might, she has been a shining star on Saturday Night Live for the past few years, and is known for her spot-on impersonations of Justin Bieber, Ellen, Hillary Clinton, and my personal favorite, a woman abducted by aliens. She is a comedy hero, has made me fall out of my chair with laughter, and isn’t afraid to take on any character.
She also happens to be a total smoke show. It’s probably wonderful to be born with that face, but my unending crush doesn’t come from a face alone. She knows how to carry herself on a red carpet, and she/her stylist has great taste. She is one of the first openly gay cast members of SNL, got her start on The Big Gay Sketch Show, and I am sending big high fives to her lady, Marla. Nice work. True to form, she doesn’t take herself too seriously, and seems to be enjoying the ride.

Gorgeousness from her feature in Elle.
I hope this one doesn’t stop moving. The more I see, the more I love. I also just found out she is younger than me, so I am dealing with that a little bit.
Go see Ghostbusters, now-ish, and join the Kate Crush Club.
