1. Kenan Thompson
McKinnon may one day headline this list, but for now, Thompson stands as the show’s glue. He’s not a breakout star, but he’s on this list because he can do anything the show asks him to do. Thompson does it with a precision and professionalism that he makes it look easy, which is why he’s so often overlooked. He has never wanted the spotlight, and never sought to be the show’s alpha dog. Instead, he has steadily and subtly pushed his way to the epicenter of what has been to date a very successful season of the show.
