Notable role: Roseanne Roseannadanna on Saturday Night Live (1975-1980)
To say that Radner paved the way for women at studio 6H (and for that matter, the world of comedy) would be a gross understatement. Gilda Radner, one of the OG Not Ready for Primetime Players, stole the hearts of a nation and seemingly everyone else she met, too, during her time at SNL. Can you blame people for falling for her charms? Her smiles were as boundless as her hilarious characters, like the kind of disgusting Roseanne Roseannadanna and the endearing Emily Litella (based on her own nanny growing up who would comically mishear just about everything). Hell, Radner basically invented the "dork" with Lisa Loopner. Honestly, if you want to see some comedy history at its finest we recommend a viewing of her "Best Of Gilda Radner" DVD and picking up her heartbreaking funny book It's Always Something.
