‘SNL’ Cast Member Nominated for Emmy is From Aurora
Bowen Yang, a cast member from ‘SNL’ received a historic Emmy nomination yesterday. Bowen is the first Chinese-Americans and the first-ever “Saturday Night Live” featured player to be nominated for an acting Emmy.
Bowen is in his second season so he is still considered a “featured player”. Once a cast member makes it past their third season then they are considered a regular cast member.
When Bowen attended Smoky Hill High School he was voted “most likely to be a cast member on SNL”. See the tweet below.
Congratulations to Smoky Hill Alumni Bowen Yang who was officially named to this year’s SNL cast! The class of 2008 knew this day would come. pic.twitter.com/r9N2bUBtBH
