8. Nora Dunn
Best known for: Pat Stevens, Babette, The Sweeney Sisters, Ann Landers, Leona Helmsley
Overshadowed by: Jon Lovitz, Dennis Miller, Dana Carvey, Jan Hooks, Phil Hartman, Mike Myers
Why: Not since Gilda Radner has a female cast member created so many memorable characters as she steals the limelight from her co-stars. Dunn was one of the few members to survive the 1985-1986, but when Jan Hooks arrived (another member of our list) it became increasingly more difficult for her own creations to shine (although they both collaborated on the amazing Sweeney Sisters). But her take on supermodels in The Pat Stevens show was ahead of its time and her Leona Helmsley? Priceless.
