SNL Debuted The Best Hannah Gadsby Impression And People Are Losing It
In a take on the hunt for a new Oscars host, SNL star Aidy Bryant showed off a spot-on impression of Hannah Gadsby.
You might have forgotten but for five whole minutes, Kevin Hart was going to host the Oscars. Then, after he flat-out refused to apologise for homophobic tweets where the actor "joked" he would react violently if his son ever acted feminine, he stepped down from the hosting gig.
It was a weird time, we'll give you that.
While we still have an Oscars host-shaped hole in our hearts the folks at Saturday Night Live offered up a few suggestions as to who should step up.
With impressions ranging from Tiffany Haddish to Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan, two Aussies also got the nod -- Chris Hemsworth and Hannah Gadsby.
Bryant's pitch-perfect impression made a few references to "tension" -- something Gadsby spoke about at length in her groundbreaking Netflix special Nanette.
It's also not the first time the Aussie comedian's name has been thrown into the ring as a potential Oscars host after she stole the show with her brief appearance at the Emmy's in September.
The sketch also featured a few other impressions like Michelle Wolf, the comedian who was also in the middle of her own hosting controversy after she performed at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
After Wolf absolutely roasted the Trump Administration -- some of who were in attendance at the event -- conservatives became so fired up that the 2019 WHCD has decided to break tradition and not have a comedian speak at the otherwise impeccably boring event.
While there's still no news on who could be hosting the 2019 Academy Awards, maybe we need a double bill of Hannah Gadsby and Aidy Bryant doing a Hannah Gadsby impression?
