Edward Norton hosted SNL for the first time ever this past Saturday, and there were a lot of great moments that came out of his episode.

After the release of a study which indicates that most Oscar voters are wealthy white men, how smart a play does it seem to feature the host of the Academy Awards, Billy Crystal (a wealthy white man), in a sketch in which he appears in blackface?  Well, it’s a play that the Oscars ran with on Sunday night, and it’s catching a bit of criticism (beneath the cacophony about...

When she’s not busy not doing mountains of cocaine, not shoplifting, not making a public and depressing spectacle of herself, and not taking the goodwill her early fame generating and burning it to the ground with a very public and ego-driven flame out in which she crashes and burns while we stand around the fire with marshmallows on sticks and hot cocoa...

Zooey Deschanel and Jean Dujardin on Saturday Night Live
Though Zooey Deschanel was the host of this week's Saturday Night Live, she was upstaged by two of its guests: Jean Dujardin and Nicolas Cage. Both came to promote and mock their movies, and it made for one of the all around best SNL's in a while (though the musical guests were a low point). Dujardin, who would win the BAFTA for best actor the next day, came to do a...

Tiny Fey covers a lot of ground in her new book, Bossypants ("Why is this book called Bossypants? One, because the name Two and a Half Men was already taken”), from discussing sexism and ageism in Hollywood, to her hit TV show 30 Rock, to getting advice from Oprah Winfrey.  But the most interesting sections seem to deal...

The reviews are in on Zach Galifianakis’ (type that three times fast) Saturday Night Live hosting gig over the weekend, and the brilliant comic’s episode is getting—unsurprisingly—high marks for his hilarious monologue ("I wear a lot of Axe body spray, but I live in a black neighborhood, and it's called Ask body spray, and if you don't get that joke, then you're not racist"),...
