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.
President Barack Obama
President Barack Obama will introduce the much-hyped premiere of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Fox announced Saturday.
In the video message, Obama will invite a new generation of viewers to embrace the spirit of discovery and encourage them to explore new frontiers and imagine limitless possibilities for the future.
Just try telling Carrie Watts that you can't go home again. This elderly Texan, determined to make her way back to a town that time and everyone but she has forgot, bristles with restless gumption, fueled by an indomitable spirit that erupts in hymns she can't stop humming — or singing, as in a memorable scene set in a deserted bus station after midnight.
On Broadway, where Cicely Tyson won a Tony Award last year for her luminous performance as Carrie in a revival of The Trip to Bountiful, audiences often joined in as she sang "Blessed Assurance" in the play's rapturous high point. And for a moment, in Lifetime's languid movie adaptation (Saturday, 8/7c), you might find your own living room transformed into a choir loft.
