SNL Adam Sandler Chris Farley Song

Adam Sandler hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, marking his first time back on the long-running NBC late-night sketch show since his 1995 firing by the network. A sore subject he addressed in his opening monologue during his song, “I Was Fired.”

The humorous tune, which contained a guest appearance by Chris Rock, also mentioned how his friend and co-star Chris Farley had been fired at the same time. To close the show, Sandler performed a more somber song in tribute to Farley, who died in 1997 of a drug overdose at age 33.

Watch the performances for both songs here below, along with other videos from the episode.

SNL Promo Game Of Thrones Spinoffs

We’re just a week away from the premiere of the highly anticipated eighth and final season of the HBO series Game Of Thrones. Not surprisingly, the network’s marketing machine is out in full force, especially in New York City, where the red carpet Season 8 premiere was held and also where a replica of the Iron Throne sat on display for a few days at Rockefeller Center.

On Saturday, in Studio 8H of 30 Rock, Kit Harington, one of the main stars of Game Of Thrones, hosted Saturday Night Live, where they of course incorporated the HBO series into some of the sketches. The opening monologue saw some guest appearances from Harington’s GoT co-stars, while a pre-recorded sketch gave us a promo of HBO’s multiple planned Game Of Thrones spinoff series.

Hulu The Handmaid's Tale TV show - winner 2017 Emmys

The 69th Annual Emmy Awards ceremony was broadcast live tonight on CBS from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, with Late Night‘s Stephen Colbert hosting for his first time.

The Handmaid’s Tale and Veep took home the big wins in their respective categories — drama and comedy — while the limited series Big Little Lies, starring Nicole Kidman (who also won); Donald Glover and his series Atlanta; and long-running sketch series Saturday Night Live all took home their fair share of awards as well. For SNL, guest star Alec Baldwin grabbed the Emmy for his popular repeated portrayal of President Donald Trump.

Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus made history tonight when she snagged her sixth consecutive win for best actress in a comedy series, which is the most Emmy awards won by a performer for one role. The HBO show went on to win the Best Comedy Series award.

See below for the list of Emmys 2017 nominees and winners.

‘The Blues Brothers’ Animated Series May Not Be As Bad As You Think

The Blues Brothers header

What started out as a sketch on Saturday Night Live, The Blues Brothers became one of the best comedies to feature rhythm and blues musical acts. Starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as “Joliet” Jake and Elwood Blues, respectively, the 1980 film had the two characters in a tale of redemption where they embark on “a mission from God” to save from foreclosure the Catholic orphanage in which they were raised.

Unfortunately, John Belushi died in 1982, but somehow a sequel was developed and released in 1998. Despite having the creative and performing core group return, the sequel never quite lived up to expectations and turned out to be a commercial and critical failure.

However, Aykroyd is going to develop an animated series based on the two films. But it is not as bad as it sounds thanks in part to the creative team that is involved. More on the story below.

Deadpool Responds To SNL Hosting Petition With Kanye West-Style Meltdown

Deadpool

Deadpool has earned close to $200 million at the domestic box office in its first nine days of release, which is quite a feat for a scrappy R-rated Marvel Comics superhero action-comedy made on a production budget of $58 million. Most of the people who see it the first time can’t wait to see it again. This is more than a blockbuster; it’s a full-blown cultural phenomenon.

As further proof of this development, fans of the movie recently started a petition at Change.org to get star Ryan Reynolds to reprise his role as Deadpool for a gig hosting Saturday Night Live. As of this writing, the petition has gained over 70,000 signatures.

In response to this rallying call from his devoted fan base to introduce Marvel’s quippy Merc with a Mouth to the Not Ready for Prime Players, Reynolds released an audio speaking in character as Deadpool angrily ranting about SNL in the manner of the recently-leaked audio recording of Kanye West having an egocentric meltdown backstage at the show.

Check out the Deadpool recording here below.

‘SNL’: Marvel’s ‘Black Widow: Age Of Me’ Trailer

Black Widow

Every time Saturday Night Live gets a guest host who plays regularly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they just can’t resist getting in a dig or two at the superhero blockbuster factory via a well-produced and hilarious sketch.

In late 2012, they had on Jeremy Renner and the collaboration resulted in an Avengers spoof centered around the relative lameness of Hawkeye. Last September, Chris Pratt was more than happy to participate in one of the show’s Digital Shorts taking comedic aim at his recent star-making turn in the summer smash Guardians of the Galaxy. Most recently, Chris Hemsworth suited up as Thor for another Avengers sketch that portrayed the mighty God of Thunder as a glory-hogging party animal.

This weekend, Scarlett Johansson guest hosted Saturday Night Live to help promote the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so naturally the show had to feature her in a Marvel-spoofing skit as her MCU character and Avenger extraordinaire Black Widow. True to SNL form, the sketch chose to stick it to Marvel Studios by showing how they would approach making a solo movie starring Johansson as the sultry superspy in the mock trailer for Black Widow: Age of Me.

SNL The Walking Dead Norman Reedus On Weekend Update

Walking Dead star Norman Reedus stopped by the Weekend Update desk during last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live.

The news segment featured cast member Pete Davidson, aka the “Resident Young Person,” who was supposed to talk about the series finale of the Walking Dead, which aired last Sunday, but instead the conversation turned into his propensity for smoking weed and his worries about surviving a zombie apocalypse. That’s when Reedus showed up as his Walking Dead character Daryl Dixon, signature crossbow in hand, ready to protect against Walkers.

SNL Michael Keaton Tribute Monologue

Michael Keaton made it big in the 1980s with lead roles in films like Beetlejuice and Batman, but the next two decades saw his career take a downward slump. But thanks to his lead turn in 2014 in the Academy Award-winning best picture Birdman, the 63-year-old actor has been riding high on the comeback wave.

Last night saw Keaton return as host of Saturday Night Live for the first time since 1992. You would think the actor’s major comeback would be the subject of his opening monologue, but instead it was hijacked by SNL cast members Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan, who desperately wanted him to play Batman and Beetlejuice with them.

Check out Keaton’s full monologue here below, along with some other skits from the episode.
