Emma Stone has a pretty full range. She does both comedy and drama well and when she drops by Saturday Night Live it’s very obvious that she enjoys her time in studio 8H. She hosted the show two other times in 2010 and 2011. It’s actually hard to believe it’s been five years since. Save for an appearance on SNL 40 to portray her hero Gilda Radner’s character of Roseanne Roseannadanna. Stone is one of those names that makes you smile when you learn she’ll be dropping by to host.
This time around she and the crew went a bit early on the holiday cheer, producing 3 different sketches with a Christmas theme. An interesting turn since we’re still two shows out from the Christmas episode of the show. Stone provided some great moments for the evening, let’s run it down.
Trump Cold Open
It’s pretty obvious that SNL didn’t have much of a contingency plan had Hillary Clinton lost the presidential run. The good news is Alec Baldwin seems to be more than willing to make the quick trek over to 30 Rock for a few hours and help become one of the most talked about moments the next day. SNL could very well have Baldwin portray their Drumpf for a while to come.
It’s also pretty obvious that the show mocking our president-elect on TV gets under his skin. He doesn’t think its funny anymore and is nostalgic for the time when it was, ya know just a year ago when he hosted. Maybe he’s just really self aware and realizes he hosted one of the worst episodes of last season.
