Kate McKinnon nails Ellen DeGeneres impersonation on Saturday Night Live

Says Ellen: 'I’m going to invite her to LA because I want her to go to Thanksgiving for me'

New Saturday Night Live cast member Kate McKinnon is clearly a standout and is helping to fill the void left by Kristin Wiig who departed at the end of last season.

McKinnon, who is also a lesbian, nailed an impersonation of Ellen DeGeneres that is getting raves - including DeGeneres herself.

'She’s really funny,' DeGeneres told viewers on her daytime show as she showed clips of McKinnon as her.

'I’m going to invite her to LA because I want her to go to Thanksgiving for me,' she joked.

DeGeneres reflected on the oddness of seeing someone as her: 'It was fun to watch but it’s weird being impersonated. You look at it going, ‘Really? Do I sound like that?’ You think, ‘That doesn’t sound like me, that sounds like a cartoon character. … And I thought the same thing watching Finding Nemo.'

DeGeneres, of course, was the main voice in Nemo.

Below are clips of McKinnon with Ellen's analysis.
