Originally posted 08/22/2015 09:05AM

Sidesplitting sketch comedy and laugh-a-minute films have made Kristen Wiig a Hollywood powerhouse.

The Saturday Night Live vet and Oscar nominee turns 42 today. The range of instantly quotable characters from her hilarious body of work – including a mischievous student, a baker whose friend's wedding leads to major mix-ups and a Disney princess gone wrong – proves that her last four decades have been well spent.

While the actress is busy filming the Ghostbusters reboot in Boston, we're taking a look back at her most memorable contributions to the world.

Wiig's "on the clock and ready to rock" SNL character quickly became a favorite for fans of the classic variety show.

WATCH: Bradley Cooper Embraces the Leotard Look in Official Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp Trailer

Here's something to chat about over hot dogs and fireworks this holiday weekend – the official trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is here, and it's a feast of nostalgic (and not-so-clean) fun.

The cast alone is worth celebrating. In addition to Wet Hot's original players (Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, and director David Wain in an on-camera role), newcomers Kristen Wiig, Jordan Peele, H.
