Rachel Brosnahan Will Be Making Her 'Saturday Night Live' Hosting Debut

Right on the heels of her win at the 2019 Golden Globes, Saturday Night Live announced that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan will be taking on hosting duties.

As usual, the announcement was made through SNL’s Twitter account, which stated that the variety show intends to “start 2019 on a marvelous note” with the 28-year-old actress’ visit on Jan. 19.

Also slated to joint the TV star is the rising rock group Greta Van Fleet, a Michigan four-piece known for conjuring vintage Led Zeppelin sounds. 

This will be the show’s first new episode after Matt Damon hosted on Dec. 15 with musical guests Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson, who performed their new single “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart.” Damon reprised his hilarious impression of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

On Sunday, Brosnahan sat down with ET’s Nancy O’Dell after claiming her prize where she discussed somehow managing to land the celebrated show’s leading role.

“This job is a job that I never thought I would have,” she explained. “I went to drama school. I was very dramatic and I’m so grateful to every single person who ever gave me the opportunity to try the thing that I wasn’t really sure that I could do… I feel very very very lucky.”

Also in attendance at Sunday’s awards show was SNL star Pete Davidson who, according to ET’s eyewitness, was spied getting flirty with none other than Kate Beckinsale.

The pair were seen talking on the balcony at Netflix’s Golden Globes after-party at the Beverly Hilton where Davidson attempted to charm the leading lady. Our insider says Beckinsale enjoyed the comedian’s joke while his pal Machine Gun Kelly continually headed inside to get more drinks.

However, the pair did not leave the party together. Davidson left with the rapper and Beckinsale left with a female friend.

'Saturday Night Live': Jason Momoa Brings Khal Drogo Back From the Dead for 'Game of Thrones' Talk Show

For those Game of Thrones fans who have missed the intimidating (and shirtless) presence of Jason Momoa’s Khal Drogo, Saturday Night Live made sure to get the Aquaman star to reprise his iconic role over the weekend.

Donning the leather armor and long, braided hair of his long-dead character, he was joined by Kenan Thompson for Khal Drogo’s Ghost Dojo, a talk show in which they interviewed dead GoT characters.

From getting Hodor (Beck Bennet) to hold the door for some of the guests to Kate McKinnon coming out as a pitch perfect King Joffrey (throwing out some choice lines from Bhad Bhabie’s famous Dr. Phil appearance), the sketch was a fun (albeit uneven) tribute to the iconic HBO series.

The sketch even made some sly references to Kevin Hart’s recent Oscar hosting controversy.

When Brienne of Tarth (Heidi Gardner), who isn’t even dead on the show, came out with her trademark short hair and gruff demeanor, Drogo said (in perfect Drothraki), “If this man wants to fight, I’ll give him what he wants.”

“Man? Wow, you have a lot to learn about identity politics,” Brienne shot back.

“You’re right,” Drogo replied, this time in English, adding that if he didn’t learn from past mistakes he would never “get to host the Oscars.”

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT on NBC.

'Saturday Night Live' Calls Out Hypocrisy Over Kevin Hart Oscars Controversy

Saturday Night Live‘s “Weekend Update” anchor Michael Che addressed the recent controversy surrounding Kevin Hart over the weekend, and called out the Academy Awards for their apparent hypocrisy.

“Well, that was short,” Che joked as a photo oh Hart came up as a graphic.

“Kevin Hart had to step down as host of the upcoming Academy Awards because of homophobic tweets from 2011,” Che continued, referring to the scandal that led to Hart recusing himself from the gig on Thursday evening. 

“But didn’t the Academy nominated Mel Gibson for an award just last year?” Che added, correctly referring to Gibson’s Best Director nomination for Hacksaw Ridge in 2017.

Che — who recently hosted this year’s Emmys along side fellow “Weekend Update” anchor Colin Jost — also suggested that “if Kevin Hart isn’t clean enough to host the Oscars then no Black comic is.”

“The only Black comic I know that’s cleaner than Kevin Hart is booked for the next three to 10 years,” Che continued, as a photo of disgraced comedian Bill Cosby appeared on screen.

Hours after Hart confirmed that he’d been tapped to host the 91st Academy Awards on Tuesday evening, a number of offensive remarks tweeted by Hart between 2009 and 2011 — many of which include anti-gay slurs and homophobic insults — began circulating online, and some of those offended by his tweets started the movement calling for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to rescind their hosting offer.

The 39-year-old actor first broke his silence on the controversy Thursday afternoon in a video explaining that he’s a different person now than he was, and adding that he’s “in a great place [in his life]. A great mature place, where all I do is spread positivity.”

A few hours later, the comic posted another video in which he defiantly said he would not apologize, despite the Academy demanding he do so, claiming that he’d “addressed this several times” over the years and didn’t feel he needed to do so again.

Less than two hours later, Hart announced that he’d decided to step down from hosting the Oscars, and extended a full apology to the LGBTQ community.

A source close to the comedian told ET on Friday that Hart feels “disappointed” and “hurt” that he won’t be hosting the Oscars but he will move forward from this and ultimately be “good.”

Check out the video below to hear more.

Pete Davidson Honors Ruth Bader Ginsburg With Epic Rap Music Video Tribute on 'Saturday Night Live' — Watch!

After fracturing three ribs in a fall less than two weeks ago, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is gearing up to return to her regular workout routine and her position on the highest court in the land.

In honor of the most hardcore SCOTUS judge around, Pete Davidson and Chris Redd reunited as the rap duo Gooney Tunes for an all-new rap tribute on Saturday Night Live over the weekend.

Kate McKinnon, who routinely plays the “Notorious RGB” on SNL‘s “Weekend Update,” reprised her role as the liberal-minded justice for one of the show’s catchiest and funniest pre-taped music videos the show has produced in a while.

“You know there’s only like one lady holding the whole damn thing together, right?” Davidson intones, as he and Redd perform inside a court room.

“You think some broken ribs are gonna keep her down? Hell no!” Redd adds, before they kick off on the track, which has a legitimately excellent hook: “I Live Ginsburg and I ride for Ginsburg.”

It’s clear exactly how highly the iconic Supreme Court Justice is thought of in the number, with some epic lyrics that tout her tough legal stances and her vocal opposition to many of President Donald Trump’s legal decisions and decrees.

“Tell Trump to stay out her way/ Don’t f**k with my Roe v. Wade/ Supreme Court’s a boys club, She holds it down, no cares given/ Who else got six movies about ’em who’s still livin?” Redd raps, referring to the plethora of Ginsburg documentaries and biopics produced in recent years.

“Survived the depression and Twitter attacks from Trump/ Broken ribs can’t even stop her, boy she eats that s**t for lunch!” the song continues.

While the lyrics and the beat make for a genuinely excellent song, it’s McKinnon’s incredible portrayal of the 85-year-old legal expert that really takes the music video to the next level.

Whether she’s showing off her six-pack abs, tattooed with “Brooklyn” across his midsection, or her breakdancing on the floor of the courtroom, McKinnon’s depiction of a badass, tough-as-nails Ginsburg should be enough to earn her an Emmy nod yet again next year.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT on NBC.

Pete Davidson Address Ariana Grande Split on 'Saturday Night Live'

Pete Davidson got candid and sweet while addressing his breakup with his former fiancee, Ariana Grande, on Saturday Night Live.

The comic sat down with Colin Jost and Michael Che on ‘Weekend Update’ over the weekend, where he ostensibly came out to give his opinion on congressional candidates running for reelection, but made sure to address the elephant in the room.

Davidson kicked the segment off with a coy quip about the split, telling Jost that he never cared about politics or the congressional races, but “after I moved back in with my mom, i started paying attention to them.”

After weighing in on several of the candidates, Davidson wrapped up the brief segment by addressing fans who have been asking about the split.

“I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business, but sometimes things just don’t work and that’s OK,” Davidson said, earnestly. “She’s a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”

While Davidson hasn’t opened up much publically about the painful split, he did poke fun at his failed engagement in a promo for SNL that was released on Thursday.

In the teaser, Davidson appears alongside Saturday’s host, Jonah Hill, as well as musical guest Maggie Rogers, to whom Davidson introduces himself and then immediately asks if she wants to get married.

Shortly after the promo dropped, Grande took to Twitter to post a number of since-deleted tweets seemingly slamming her ex for making the joke.

A source close to Davidson told ET on Friday that the comic is just trying to move on, and comedy is how he does that. “He’s obviously hurt it didn’t work out but is doing his best to move on. Anyone would be hurt after an engagement was broken off,” the source said. “Pete joked about him and Ariana [when they were together]. So joking about breaking up and their relationship is not new.”

For more on the couple’s high-profile relationship and eventual split, watch the video below.
