Sometimes I try to watch SNL through the lens of a cynical young tastemaker, pantomiming disgust at a show whose glory days are long behind it. Occasionally I succeed, but more often I guffaw along at the sketches like the gym short-wearing, couch-bound middle-aged father that I secretly am. Last night, the enduringly…
In “Welcome to Hell,” Saturday Night Live’s female cast members invite the men to come on in to join the world of sexual assault, a pink marshmallow where all women presumably live. Where come nightfall everybody travels in packs and carries mace, and it’s all very, very tiring.
Beyoncé is in labor or possibly/definitely already has babies right now (allegedly) according to the internet. Here are the last documented whereabouts of Beyoncé, an image in front of what appears to be a walk-in closet, posted on May 30th. Which almost certainly means that she in hiding somewhere (in the closet?)…
Do you remember the trailer for the upcoming comedy Girls Trip? In it, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish go to New Orleans for a wild weekend together. The trailer for the upcoming comedy Rough Night is pretty much the same thing, only it’s set in Miami, the women are played by…
Great news for fans of nostalgia-forward TV reboots and science: Kate McKinnon will be the voice of Ms. Frizzle for Netflix’s planned reboot of the beloved children’s animated series The Magic School Bus.
Kate McKinnon paid tribute to Hillary Clinton’s dismal political loss and the passing of Leonard Cohen in Saturday Night Live’s cold open this week, the first since Election Day. McKinnon, decked out in a crisp white pantsuit, simply played and sang Cohen’s iconic “Hallelujah”.
Saturday Night Live’s planned cold open for October 8—a spoof of the Tuesday debate between America’s stepdads, the Vice Presidential nominees—was clearly waylaid by Pussygate, and so they preempted it with a “CNN Breaking News” interview with “Donald Trump,” as portrayed by a pitch-perfect and sufficiently orange…
As Kate McKinnon was accepting her Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Sunday night, she thanked both current and past cast members of Saturday Night Live, as well as Lorne Michaels. McKinnon’s speech, half-bleeped and appreciative, was fine, but overshadowed ever-so-slightly by Julia Louis-Dreyfus’…
Kate McKinnon is a national treasure who must be protected at all costs. Do not sleep on her Ruth Bader Ginsburg impression, for it is wonderful and beautiful and good.
Some of the leading ladies of the Ghostbuster’s reboot have commented on the internet backlash against their casting in the franchise—a backlash that feels like it’s been going on for maybe a hundred years now, and predates the original film in my mind.
The cast of the Ghostbusters reboot stopped by Ellen on Wednesday, leading to a delightful moment in which Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones almost brought Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Melissa McCarthy to the point of crying laughter with her recollections of her former job as a Scientology telemarketer.
A comedy titled Women in Business is in the works starring Kate McKinnon, Emma Stone and Jillian Bell. It’s about women in business.
After much teasing, Sony just dropped the full trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon and is due to hit theaters this summer.
The next time you notice something strange in the neighborhood, who exactly are you going call? Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones, of course. Your brand new team of Ghostbusters.
With two films to promote, it’s no surprise that Ryan Gosling did the obligatory host gig on Saturday Night Live. Though SNL has been a bit rocky this season (see the terrible Donald Trump-hosted episode), Gosling’s turn as host was charming, in large part because he couldn’t stop laughing.
Ever since the Ghostbusters remake was first announced, the film has faced criticism and controversy from fans of the original who are appalled that four talented women have dared to portray the paranormal investigating quartet.
Hillary Clinton appeared on Saturday Night Live’s season premiere and used the bit to make fun of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, as well as her own positions on issues like the Keystone Pipeline and marriage equality.
The New York Times reports that Hillary Clinton will make an appearance on tomorrow’s season premiere of Saturday Night Live. Though Clinton’s camp wouldn’t confirm the appearance, it looks like she will appear alongside Kate McKinnon who has been deftly portraying the Democratic candidate throughout the last year.
