Natalie Portman stopped by 8H to host SNL for the second time last Saturday night. This was the 4th SNL in a row for the cast and writers, and you could tell they were a little worn out. It was a tough situation to avoid with the Olympics starting tomorrow and taking over NBC. SNL had to run a bunch of episodes in a row since they’ll be off until March 3rd. The show started off strong with Revolutionary War and another classic Portman rap. It got a little wacky towards the end with Alien Lover & Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, but overall I enjoyed it. The funniest sketch for me was Stranger Things 3.
Natalie Portman – SNL
I enjoyed everyone’s role here. Mikey Day as the horny version of Mike was great. Portman as Eleven trying to explain ‘momma’ and her nose bleeds was funny. I legitimately laughed out loud when Beck Bennett’s Fourteen started a small fire and threw up in his mouth. Ditto for Cecily Strong’s Nine reading people’s minds and then farting. I’m not sure if it’s worrying that people throwing up in their mouth and farting is a guaranteed laugh for me, but that’s a battle for another day. Also, whoever came up with the character that cooks great chili but gets a brain bleed should win some type of award.
Beyonce, this hair cut does it for me in all the right places. Short hair on a woman is a thin line (or hair) that needs to be straddled carefully, but Beyonce, you did it! Looking like an absolute smoke show.
Now lets take a look at other women that pull of the short hair look.
A few buddies and I were at the bar last night and in between rounds of trivia we decided to look up which celebrities shared the same birthdays as us. Needless to say my triple threat blew people away. I had strangers coming up to me wanting my autograph. The waitress picked up my tab. This kind of makes me a famous person right? When you share such an important day with three icons of the silver and movie screens, a little bit of that magic rubs off on you. Johnny Depp is a stud. A perfect mix of a franchise guy and a risk taker, and one goddamn beautiful man. Natalie Portman is a fox, and one pretty talented actress. Even if I stop here, I feel pretty confident that I have most people beat in the fictional celebrity birthday competition. But my foot is on the gas and I’m cruising down the freeway, so it’s only right that the the world’s greatest human being was also born on June 9th: Michael J. Marty McFly Fox. Enormous child star and centerpiece of the greatest franchise in movie history. You think Parkinson’s is going to slow him down? He spits in Parkinson’s face and makes it say his name. Now he’s back to his roots with the Michael J. Fox Show, premiering in September. I always knew June 9th was a great day, but this just reinforces the fact that I have the best birthday ever. Anyone care to debate? Lay your top three on me, but be forewarned, I got Dick Vitale and Tedy Bruschi in my back pocket.
