Kate McKinnon wasn't the host of SNL this weekend, but she certainly captured lots of attention on this episode of the show. Opening the evening with a sketch in which she channeled Hillary Clinton, McKinnon was replete with the facial expressions and hand gestures of the former first lady and future potential presidential candidate.

Of course the topic was 'Servergate,' regarding that private email address that has Hillary Clinton front and center in national news reports. Kate McKinnon, as Hillary Clinton, addressed the nation from her couch at the Clinton's Chappaqua home.

In addition to Servergate, Kate McKinnon made many references to Clinton's potential run for president--one that was accompanied by an ultrasound of Hillary Clinton in utero, waving a 'Hillary for President' flag. She said she knew she wanted to be president even before she was born.

A bit later in the evening, Kate McKinnon switched hats, moving on from Hillary Clinton and stealing Azealia Banks's hat in her role as Iggy Azalea. Sasheer Zamata portrayed Banks as the two lampooned the rappers and their high-profile feud over Iggy Azalea's habit of 'co-opting black culture.' Chris Hemsworth--the Saturday Night Live host for the evening--played the role of Azalea's hip-hop cousin Rafty.

And yes, Chris Hemsworth was gorgeous on SNL. Ladies no doubt swooned over his abs, his rugged good looks, and his adorable Australian accent. However it was Kate McKinnon who made Saturday night's show.
