Tina and Amy won as co-hosts of last year’s Christmas episode on SNL.

The Emmy is the first for Amy, but part of a collection for Tina. She’s won eight times before, including acting and writing trophies.

The creative arts Emmys precede the main ceremony, which is scheduled to air on Sunday September 18.
