Saturday Night Live (SNL) hosted by Chris Pratt did not leave a “hooked on the feeling” aftertaste when the show ended. Pratt, as much as he was allowed to, pretty much rocked it. Even his opening monologue (sing-o-logue) felt pretty comfortable, and why not, he has cut his teeth on television so the format is one he would feel comfortable with. On a side note, who knew that Chris was in a relationship with that girl from the Scary Movie franchise (and My Super Ex Girlfriend, Lost in Translation…) aka Anna Faris, what a surprise. It was also very touching that she was in the front row for his “open.”
In an emotional speech Ellen Page announced that she is gay and the Juno actress got tumultuous applause and a standing ovation at the LGBT Time to Thrive conference that was run by the HRC. The 26 year-old actress spoke at the gay young people’s event being held at Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Valentines Day. Page revealed that she was gay and tired of hiding the fact by omission. Her speech was posted on YouTube and you can watch it below.
Just when it seems like Saturday Night Live has lost some of its panache regarding guest hosts, they trot out Jonah Hill who then has a Leonardo DiCaprio bromance moment. Not to take away from Hill’s monologue, which you can see in the video below, because Hill was doing what he does best, being the big little man everyone loves to bust on.
Watching Canadian singer/songwriter and actor Drake on season 39 episode 11, it becomes clear that SNL is still crazy after all these years. Despite its longevity the show feels the same. After the obligatory introductory skit, which ends with the excited delivery of “It’s Saturday Night,” followed by the dulcet tones of 95 year-old Don Pardo calling off the names of this episode’s players; it almost feels like the viewer has stepped into a time machine and gone back to 1975 when the show first started.
It has been pointed out that Miley Cyrus actually confessed to murder when she hosted Saturday Night Live. And not just any murder either, she confessed during her opening monologue for the show. The singer said of her former persona, “She was murdered.”
