After watching last night’sÂ SNL, all I kept thinking was “So. Many. Adorable. Moments.” Â Andrew Garfield might be the cutest host since Macaulay Culkin and Fred Savage hosted in the early ’90s. Â I’m serious. Â He’s charming, funny, and made a great host – he would have been fine sans Emma Stone, but her appearance was basically just an added delight. Â Scrumtrulescent, if you will. Â (Are we still saying that? I hope so.)
Anyway, it was nice to watchÂ SNL after its 56th hiatus this season, and we only have a limited number of Saturday nights left to enjoy it before summer reruns, so I won’t blather on and on. Â Let’s get to it, shall we? Â Feel free to let me know what sketches you all enjoyed most in the comments.
1. Cold Open: Donald Sterling
The fact that you have to enter your birthday and other personal data before Hulu even lets you watch this sketch should give you a good idea up front that it’s going to touch upon some uncomfortable things. Â I think the writers did a solid job of making an abhorrent situation funny without making an abhorrent man likeable, if that makes sense. Â Also, Jay Pharoah‘s Dennis Rodman is now my favorite Jay Pharoah character.
2. Family Feud: Celebrity Edition
LOL. Who knew Andrew Garfield was harboring an excellent Justin Timberlake impression? Â Love it. Â Did this sketch leave anyone else yearning for more Noel Wells/Reba McEntire? Â Omg. Â I’m gonna need to see/hear more of that, please. Â I was a little disappointed in Aidy Bryant‘s Adele, but only because she actually pronounced the “t-h” in “thank you” instead of the more accurate “FANK EWE.”
3. Spiderman Kiss
The fact that Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield can have this much fun together and simply not give a singular fuck about it makes me love them even more. Â Also, does anyone know if Chris Martin was this funny BG (Before Gwyneth)? Â Because he had me totally cracking up.
4. Weekend Update
While I love Jedidiah Atkinson, I have to hand it to Kate McKinnon’s Olya here. Â TheÂ Full House references sealed the deal for me. Â Anyone who can convincingly portray getting hot and bothered by Dave Coulier is a winner in my book (Olya must not know about his not funny gay jokes yet). Â God, I love her.
5. The Beygency
This is perfection. Â We are all under Beyonce‘s spell because it’s her world and we’re just mere minions living in it. Â She’s an angel brought from the heavens to give us fun, catchy music and majestic Instagram photos. Â My husband and I came out to Â ”Love on Top” at our reception and if anyone dared to not dance along to it, we banished them. Â Plain and simple.
