1. Sweeping The Emmys

If you hadn't heard of Phoebe Waller-Bridge before the 2019 Emmys, you certainly have now. She took home three Emmys for her show Fleabag: Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. The second (and sadly final) season of Fleabag was a viral sensation, with everyone obsessing over the bittersweet ending and the Hot Priest.

2. Her First Time Hosting 'SNL'

After the Fleabag mania, Waller-Bridge was recruited to host Saturday Night Live for the first time, with Taylor Swift as her musical guest. On Wednesday, _SNL_ released a promo view for Waller-Bridge's hosting gig, and throughout the whole thing, the British charmer clings to her three Emmy awards.

I mean, if you accomplished something so awesome, wouldn't you rest on those laurels for a bit?

3. Hilariously Changed By Fame

The promo skewers letting fame go to one's head, with Waller-Bridge hilarious demanding water because she can't be bothered to lift a glass herself. She can't physically part with her trophies, you see.

So far, Waller-Bridge has made it pretty clear that she doesn't believe in the hype, instead focusing on what she can bring to the table next. On someone else, this bit may have come off as arrogant or grating, but with Waller-Bridge, it's just charming. Here's hoping her entire episode plays as well.
