  • Hosting SNL three times before your 30th birthday – not too shabby, Anne Hathaway…

  • Anne Hathaway is always superb when she hosts SNL. Her SNL impressions of the STD spreading Mary Poppins and Katie Holmes are absolutely hilarious and unforgettable.

    • I absolutely adored her portrayal of cat woman. I thought it was so fun and every scene she was in was great. Same with Joseph Gordon Levitt’s character in the movie. I thought the movie slowed down whenever it was just batman.

    • I love haters. Anne was wonderful as Selina Kyle- and she has the critical-acclaim to back-up her performance. Even Jonathan Nolan ( Chris Nolan’s brother and co-screenwriter) stated Hathaway stole the show in TDKR. Also, Anne’s brilliant impression of Katie Holmes is one of my all-time favorite skits on SNL.

  • YES! to Jeremy Renner, I think he’s going to do great. And yes to Maroon 5 too I hope they appear in a few skits.
    As for Anne Hathaway, I say, “noooOO!” Honestly, I can’t remember a single skit of hers off the top of my head, and I’m not sure if her fan base and SNL viewers really line up all that well… Now that I think about it, I’m not even sure how to actually define her fan base!

    • Go to the SNL website, and search for Mary Poppins, Katie Holmes, Mega Mart Commercial. Anne is one of the best SNL hosts. Their is reason why the SNL producers repeatedly ask her to host SNL.
