Emmy season is here! For the next two weeks, voters will be checking off names and shows they think are worthy of getting a nomination come July 10. We at TVGuide.com have a few selections in mind ourselves. First up: our dream ballot for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
Charlize Theron returned to Saturday Night Live for the first time since hosting in 2000, and it was ... unremarkable.
The episode didn't get off to a great start as the actress, who stars in Seth MacFarlane's upcoming film A Million Ways to Die in the West, delivered a rather mediocre opening monologue. But the episode wasn't all bad, and wrapped up with a very funny pre-recorded sketch about the typical tourists found in New York.

Check out highlights from the episode below:
Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield
Andrew Garfield hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time this weekend, and got some advice from his not-so-surprise guest, Emma Stone — as well as a liplock from Coldplay singer Chris Martin.
Taran Killam, Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick handled hosting duties at Saturday Night Live for the first time this weekend, in an episode that offered a few memorable moments among mostly mediocre sketches.
Highlights included the sure-to-go-viral music video "Dongs All Over the World," starring Kendrick, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Sasheer Zamata and Cecily Strong, as well as George R.R. Martin (Bobby Moynihan) stopping by "Weekend Update" to discuss the new Game of Thrones book he's working on.
Louis C.K. returned for his second shot at hosting of Saturday Night Live, and he once again used his opening monologue for some self-deprecating stand-up.
The Jimmy Fallon Show
This week, Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell stopped by the Tonight Show and participated in a rousing game of Pictionary with Jimmy Fallon, Steve Harvey and Demi Lovato. Elsewhere, President Obama went on Zach Galifianakis' Funny or Die show "Between Two Ferns" to promote the Affordable Care Act, while Kevin Bacon explained the '80s to Millennials. And the YouTube series The Velveteen Lounge Kitsch-en offered some pointers on how to celebrate National Potato Chip Day.

Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson
This week, True Detective fans speculated about how the HBO show would wrap up its first season and how the repeated references to the "Yellow King" would fit in — and a new videomakes a pretty convincing argument. After John Travolta butchered her name at the Oscars,Idina Menzel went on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform her Academy Award-winning song "Let It Go." Lena Dunham and Kate McKinnon teamed up for a series of promos about Dunham's upcoming gig hosting Saturday Night Live, while SNL cast memberSasheer Zamata was featured in the first episode of new web series Black Mad Men.

Saturday Night Live has been on hiatus for a month... and this is the best they could come up with?
The episode that marked the debut of Seth Meyers' replacement Colin Jost at the "Weekend Update" desk was disappointingly low on laughs, featuring one-joke sketches that went on too long (see: Aidy Bryant's hefty Tinkerbell stand-in "Tonkerbell"). Even Kate McKinnon's typically hilarious Ellen impersonation was a bit lackluster. As far as "Weekend Update," there are of course going to be some growing pains in that department but... we miss Seth already.
Saturday Night Live welcomed Drake this weekend as host and musical guest on its first offering of 2014 and also gave new cast member Sasheer Zamata a chance to shine — even though the episode certainly wasn't one of the better installments from this season.
Despite his recent musical success, the Degrassi alum proved he's still got more than a few acting chops to show off, gamely doing impressions of everyone from Lil' Wayne to a dorky dad at a slumber party. Check out some of the highlights from the episode below:
Samuel L. Jackson, Tobey Maguire and Zach Galifianakis
This week, Katy Perry was awkwardly caught lip-syncing when her backup track failed at an awards ceremony in France, while Paul Rudd and Kate McKinnon premiered their new web series Hudson Valley Ballers. Someone adorably re-created the movie Elf using pugs, andZach Galifianakis hosted a holiday edition of "Between Two Ferns." Also, Sarah Silverman,Michael Cera and other comedians launched an ugly sweater charity campaign for Stand Up to Cancer, and the first scene of the Kristen Wiig and Tobey Maguire miniseries The Spoils of Babylon premiered.
