Kate McKinnon dishes with on sitting at same table as Beyonce ...

She may be a talented comedienne who regularly meets big name talent thanks to her long-running stint on Saturday Night Live, but when it comes to meeting Beyonce and Jay Z, it just got to be too much.

Kate McKinnon visited The Show on Monday, fresh from presenting the Carol Burnett Award to Ellen at the 77th Golden Globe Awards the night prior at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

During their chat, Kate (who celebrated her 36th birthday on Monday) talked about how surreal it was to be sitting at a table at her first-ever Globes with both Ellen and her wife Portia de Rossi, legendary comic Carol Burnett, and most of all, Beyonce and Jay Z.

'I mean, they're the king and queen of America,' McKinnon joked, going on to say that the music superstars 'were unbelievably gracious.'

And while Kate's sister, who accompanied her to the event, did not hesitate to talk to Queen Bey, McKinnon herself remained awkward and starstruck.

'I just pretended I had something on my pants,' she quipped, physical comedy abounding. 'I blew it!' 

The Bombshell actress also gushed about what an honor it was to have been asked by Ellen, 61, to be the one to present her with the prestigious Carol Burnett Award, which was only established one year ago and is reserved for the creme de la creme of television entertainers.
