Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Her Armful of Emmys Featured in 'Saturday Night Live' Promo
Phoebe Waller-Bridge has an armful of statuettes from the recent 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, having won outstanding comedy series, lead actress in a comedy series and writing in a comedy series honors for Amazon's Fleabag.
In a promo released Wednesday for her upcoming Saturday Night Live hosting gig, it looks like she hasn't let go of them since.
SNL castmember Beck Bennett is shown running over sketches with Waller-Bridge, but having to adjust some ideas since she'll be holding all of her Emmys at all times. Later on, perhaps living in post-awards show (and viral Instagram) glory, the Killing Eve creator demands water from new castmember Chloe Fineman and alum Chris Redd as she holds onto her precious trophies.
Outside of prepping for her first time as host, Waller-Bridge's three golden sidekicks make it difficult for her to even use the elevator. Bennett stops by to help, asking her how long she's been standing there. "I don't know, time just sort of flew," she chuckles, adding, "It's good, though, I had company ... talking about my Emmys."
Waller-Bridge is set to host the Oct. 5 episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live, while Taylor Swift will serve as musical guest. Upcoming hosts include David Harbour, Kristen Stewart and Eddie Murphy.
