At the Emmy Awards last month, SNL earned 9 Emmy awards - the most for any program this year - including Variety Sketch Series. Trying to extrapolate trends this early is a fool's errand. Gosling said on the TV show that his role in the Oscar-winning film "saved jazz".
Sinead O'Connor used her platform as "SNL" musical guest to protest sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. It's one of the safest and most effective ways to reestablish control over the narrative. McKinnon, who has won two Emmys for her work on SNL, reprised the character in "Near Death Experience" and "Christmas Miracle", but on Saturday, we got the genuine article when she re-teamed with Gosling for "Another Close Encounter". I guess I can try and save jazz.' So, I did'.
"Saturday Night Live" featured player Luke Null. "So I'm just actually looking forward to what's next after that, because usually when things are darkest, then light is on its way". What felt like a naked gimmick actually turned into a smart move, using the audience's intense familiarity with the first iteration to fuel some awesome comedic callbacks.
Ryan Gosling is hosting Saturday Night Live tonight for the show's Season 43 premiere episode. Even facing away from the camera, Gosling couldn't hide the laughter. Gosling may be a former Mouseketeer-turned-huge Hollywood superstar but Kate McKinnon's power is not to be underestimated. I couldn't believe it. Probably Moffat and Mikey Day set an unreasonably high standard for new cast involvement through last season and Gardner and Redd had a more typical debut. And when the movie title, "Papyrus", is finally shown at the end, it's displayed in perhaps the most hated font ever: Comic Sans. "I got to play him".
