Saturday Night Live brought their 46th season to an end last night with Split and The Queen’s Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy making her hosting debut. The show kicked off by reflecting on one of the weirder years in the show’s history, which returned to production with strict safety measures in place due to the coronavirus pandemic. Weirdly enough, it’s a bit nostalgic for how COVID-19 ended up bringing them (and us) closer together, even as we had to literally be further apart.
However, the most intriguing part of the season finale of Saturday Night Live is what seems like hints of two or three cast members who may be on the verge of leaving the series. But we’ll get to that later. First, let’s dig into the best and worst sketches of the Anya Taylor-Joy hosted Saturday Night Live.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has set a premiere date for its eighth and final season. The cop comedy delayed its return in the wake of mass protests against police brutality, and this latest and last season was completely reworked as a result.

Keegan-Michael Key has decades of experience in improv and sketch comedy, so it should come as no surprise that he excelled stupendously when hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time. This is exactly the kind of host you want to see take the stage, and the result was an episode that was full of mostly fantastic sketches.

Last night, Keegan-Michael Key took the stage at Studio 8H in 30 Rock to host a new episode of Saturday Night Live. With years of experience in improv and sketch comedy, including the hit Comedy Central series Key & Peele, the comedian made for one of the best hosts of the season. As a pleasant surprise, SNL also came with other special guests in the form of some of The Muppets, including the balcony hecklers Statler & Waldorf. But security wasn’t going to let them get away with it this time.

It’s packed with tons of references to some of your most favorite episodes, and it comes with an entirely new set of minifigures of the show’s cast, and even a bonus character (but you’re not going to be happy to see her).

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the voting body which doles out the Golden Globe Awards each year, has had a stink on it for years. But this year, that stink finally transformed from a whiff that many high-profile celebrities and companies were willing to put up with into a full-blown stench that is generating significant consequences for the controversy-ridden organization. The latest blow came courtesy of NBC, when the network announced today that it will not air the Golden Globes 2022 award ceremony because the HFPA needs time to adopt meaningful reform within its ranks.

Well, Saturday Night Live was hosted by Elon Musk this weekend, and it went about as well as you’d expect when a billionaire business magnate without any real performance experience or natural charisma hosts a sketch comedy show. That’s not to say it was downright terrible. In fact, it went a little better than I expected. But this is the perfect example of how an episode of SNL can be stilted by a host with very little comedic intuition, even if the host is more than willing to have a little fun. Read More »
