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.
Oh, snap! After 25 seasons, Fox's The Simpsons can still seem as fresh and inventive as when we first met this merrily mutant family — especially when the show raises its game as it does for this weekend's milestone 550th (!) episode (Sunday, 8/7c), a fantastical collaboration with LEGO in which all the elements of visuals, story and jokes click into place with spectacular results.
