2024: Molly Shannon

Actress and Advocate for Women & Girls

Actress Molly Shannon is primarily known for the eclectic characters she created, such as Mary Katherine Gallagher and Sally O'Malley, during her six seasons on Saturday Night Live, where she starred alongside Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, Cheri Oteri, Tracy Morgan, and Jimmy Fallon, among many others.
Shannon recently inked a first-look development deal with HBO Max and has been tapped for a season-long arc on the fourth season of Hulu's hit mystery comedy Only Murders in the Building. Most recently, Shannon appeared in the award-winning first season of HBO's critically acclaimed The White Lotus; the independent drama A Good Person opposite Florence Pugh and Morgan Freeman; and Promising Young Woman, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.

In 2000, she received an Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program." In 2017, she was awarded the Independent Spirit Award for "Best Supporting Actress" for her performance in the highly acclaimed drama Other People.

Shannon's 2022 New York Times best-selling memoir Hello Molly! reveals her resiliency after a family tragedy that forever changed her.
