Departing comics get Emmy nods
last season of the Kristin Wiig (pictured) and Andy Samberg era of Saturday Night Live will go out with an Emmy bang. The show received 14 nominations, including nods for best variety series and for Kirsten Wiig as supporting actress in a comedy series. But one of its leading nominations came not from a departing cast member, but a returning veteran: Bill Hader. Hader is part of the foursome of SNL players – along with Wiig, Samberg and Jason Sudeikis – that has been one of the show’s best-liked casts.
