Saturday Night Live has picked up tons of Emmy nominations this year!

Kristen Wiig & Amy Poehler BOTH were nominated for Best Supporting Actress in A Comedy. This is Amy's second nomination, as she was snubbed this year for her work on Parks and Recreation.

Justin Timberlake & Tina Fey also picked up nominations for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series and Best Guest Actress in A Comedy Series respectively for their work on SNL.

Saturday Night Live was also nominated for Best Variety Show, competing against Real Time With Bill Maher, Late Show with David Letterman, The Colbert Report & The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
The writers were recognised in the Best Writing for A Variety/Comedy Show.

And last but not least, Motherlover was nominated for Best Original Song. The guys all won it a couple of years ago for Dick In A Box, so hopefully they can pull it off again this year!

Congrats to all involved!

"Whip It!" Trailer

So, I still think it looks bizarre, but I actually kinda love it, and I think it looks like an enormous amount of fun. Enjoy!
