Scarlett hosted SNL last night for the 5th time, joining a list of names that includes Drew Barrymore, Bill Murray, John Goodman and Tom Hanks, who have all entered into the show’s prestigious “Five-Timer’s Club”. For those of you who missed it last night, clips from each of the skits have been uploaded to the show’s official Youtube channel. I’ll update the site with further coverage soon.
For those of you who didn’t catch Scarlett on last night’s Saturday Night Live, here’s a recap from the show. She did a great job hosting (as always) and I’ll work on adding screen captures and further images from the episode very soon.
THE WRAP – Returning to host “Saturday Night Live” for a fourth time, Scarlett Johansson noted that she’s changed since she was last on the show and said she’s now a “MILF” — “Mom in lots of films.” Taran Killam and Kenan Thompson found her lullaby version of Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby” a little too sexy for babies, but the “SNL” audience approved.
Before Johansson’s monologue, the show opened with a crawl from NBC saying that since they’d already telecast “the whitest day in sports” with the Kentucky Derby then golf, they were just going to show the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight so that viewers wouldn’t change the channel — a goofball imitation of the fighters followed. No big laughs to start the show.
Right Side of the Bed – Sexy Southerners Return
Cecily Strong and Taran Killam teamed as Gracelynn and Cory, southerners who are constantly making jokes with lots of sexual euphemisms. Johansson played an Italian chef named Daniella — think Teresa Giudice — who was guesting to make the hosts a special cocktail.
Baltimore TV News – Calling the Game
Kenan and Taran performed as the Oriole’s Frank Robinson and Jim Palmer, calling the Orioles game that had no fans in the stands because of the civil unrest. Jim Palmer makes completely inappropriate, racially charged remarks as he calls the game. Johansson appeared as a reporter on the field at the game, which is being played with a Nerf bat.
Marvel’s ‘Black Widow: Age of Me’ Superhero Rom-Com Trailer
Johansson appeared as Black Widow starring in a movie trailer Marvel put out to prove that they “get” women. The spot-on trailer was packed back-to-back with rom-com tropes that showed Black Widow working in the fashion industry and having romances with Ultron and the Hulk.Continue Reading
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Scarlett Johansson is getting quite close to the five-timers club.
Saturday Night Live announced during this weekend’s Taraji P. Henson-hosted episode that the Lucy star is set to lead the May 2 installment. A musical guest has not yet been named.
The episode will air the day after Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, so it’s safe to assume that Johansson just may don her Black Widow costume.
This is her fourth time hosting the NBC sketch series, with the last time coming in 2010.
