Kate McKinnon Honors Ellen DeGeneres in Emotional Speech

It just might be the most well-deserved award of the night: Ellen Degeneres taking home the Carol Burnett Award for outstanding contributions to television on and off the screen at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards.

You may see Ellen DeGeneres as she was honored with the Carol Burnett Award for Achievement in Television and delivered her speech below. "And I still am". "That's a very scary thing to suddenly know about yourself", she said.

"I feel like you've all really gotten to know me over the past 17 years".

Jennifer Aniston wanted Ellen DeGeneres' old house and she said as much to the current owner, Ryan Seacrest. Of course, attitudes change but only because courageous people like Ellen jump into the fire to make them change. "They don't let LGBT people on TV'". Thank you for supporting me through this insane journey I know it wasn't easy for you or the kids, Rupert and Fiona, go to bed. To say she made it easier for other LGBTQ people in Hollywood and entertainment also doesn't adequately sum it up.

Before accepting the Carol Burnett Award at the 2020 Golden Globes, Ellen DeGeneres shared a romantic kiss with wife Portia de Rossi and then took the stage to give an empowering speech.

"In 1997, when Ellen's sitcom was at the height of its popularity, I was in my mother's basement lifting weights in front of the mirror thinking, 'Am I gay?'" the comedian said.

Kate McKinnon was emotional throughout her Golden Globes speech to Ellen DeGeneres, but she made sure the mood stayed light by peppering in items of clothing she'd received for her impressions of DeGeneres on her incredibly successful talk show. I felt like she showed us who she was every week. The "Saturday Night Live" standout proved that she would be more than capable to host the show next year.

Once she got onstage, DeGeneres honored Australians dealing with devastating fires and then pretended to tell her life story, spending plenty of time on the the day she was born and the kind of vehicle that brought her home from the hospital. Lucille Ball. Mary Tyler Moore, Marlow Thomas, Dick Van Dyke, Bob Newhart, Mannix. And that is the power of television. "And that is the power of television, and I am so, so grateful to be part of it".
