Kate McKinnon and girlfriend Jackie Abbott make official debut at Emmys: Photos

Love was in the air at the 2017 Emmy Awards!

Kate McKinnon had her special someone by her side as she was named Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: girlfriend Jackie Abbott, who she embraced before heading up to the stage.

An emotional McKinnon may have been teary-eyed, but she still looked drop-dead gorgeous in a black and white gown with a small keyhole cutout.

Backstage, "Rupaul's Drag Race" judge Michelle Visage shared a snapshot with the happy couple: "Her girlfriend Jackie was just as lovely as she is!!!" VIsage wrote.

McKinnon -- who is the first openly gay female cast member in "SNL" history -- beat out co-stars Leslie Jones and Vanessa Bayer for the award, but the three women couldn't have been more supportive of each other, all emphasizing their mutual love, respect and friendship ahead of the ceremony.

A slew of other celebrity couples graced the Emmys red carpet, including Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, Felicity Huffman and Willam H. Macy, and Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade. Check out all the famous couples in the slideshow below:
