Davidson introduced musical guest Miley Cyrus’ performance of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s classic (Happy Xmas) War Is Over, which featured Lennon and Ono’s son, Sean Ono Lennon, as well as Mark Ronson.

This was Davidson’s only live SNL appearance tonight (he was also featured in a pre-recorded skit about new Oscar host auditions). He was not visible during the curtain call at the end of the show when the entire cast gathers on stage.

Jason Momoa Reveals the "Coolest" Thing About Playing Aquaman, and It's Not His Trident

Jason Momoa Reveals the
I imagine there are plenty of perks to being Aquaman. Breathing underwater, for example, seems pretty sweet, as does superhuman strength and being to command sharks to do your bidding. But according to Jason Momoa, current star of Aquaman, the most exciting part of playing the aqua-inclined superhero has nothing to do with his abilities or even that shiny gold trident.

During a recent interview with Us Weekly, Momoa shared that although he was nervous about his kids seeing him in the film, ultimately, their reactions are what he says is the "coolest" part of the entire process.

"The colors are very loud. I'm curious to see my face attached to that body. I feel like the most intimate part of it was being in it and looking at people's faces," he said. "The coolest moment was probably when I got on the phone and I FaceTimed my kids and

The Sweet, Simple Reason Julie Andrews Isn't in Mary Poppins Returns

It's one of the most anticipated movies of the holiday season: Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel to the beloved 1964 Disney classic. Starring Emily Blunt as the practically perfect nanny, the movie centers on the grown-up Banks children, as well as Michael Banks's three young children. There are plenty of nostalgic moments in the movie, from the charming soundtrack that would make the Sherman brothers proud to the showstopping cameo by original star Dick Van Dyke. But what about the original Mary Poppins, Dame Julie Andrews herself? Blunt has taken on the role, since Mary Poppins doesn't age and human actors do, but could Andrews appear, as Van Dyke does, in a smaller role?

Andrews does not make even a cameo appearance in the new movie, and there's a very sweet reason. Director Rob Marshall told Variety that he immediately approached her about the possibility, but she turned it down to

Outlander: The Tragic Connection Between Frank and Laoghaire You Might Not Have Picked Up On

Outlander: The Tragic Connection Between Frank and Laoghaire You Might Not Have Picked Up On
Warning: Spoilers for Outlander season four below!

The latest Outlander episode, titled "Down the Rabbit Hole," sees the return of a couple of familiar faces in Tobias Menzies' Frank and Nell Hudson's Laoghaire, which may have come as a bit of a surprise - even to book readers, in Frank's case. But executive producer Maril Davis tells Popsugar that doing a Frank episode was on their minds from very early on in plotting out season four, even though he doesn't really appear in Diana Gabaldon's Drums of Autumn.

In the episode, the main thrust of the action is that Brianna (Sophie Skelton) travels through the stones to 1760s Scotland. But this is juxtaposed with flashbacks to her final months with her father, Frank (Menzies), which the writers room thought was an important thing to include in Brianna's journey.

"We decided fairly early on that part of the

Outlander Made a Significant Change to Brianna's Character From the Books - Here's Why
Some Outlander fans were undoubtedly surprised by the events of the most recent episode, titled "Down the Rabbit Hole." Not only are Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) absent, but there are a couple of surprising faces that pop up over the course of the hour. Plus, Brianna's (Sophie Skelton) time in Scotland on her way to 1760s America is quite different than it is written in the book. Read on to find out why the Outlander writers made these changes, but be warned: spoilers to follow!

Book readers know that originally when Brianna travels to Scotland, she makes her way to Lallybroch and meets not only her Uncle Ian (Steven Cree), but also her Aunt Jenny (Laura Donnelly) and several of her cousins. They welcome her with open arms, the only blemish on the otherwise happy family reunion being when Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) shows up, ranting and raving

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: The (Likely) Real-Life Inspirations Behind Declan Howell

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: The (Likely) Real-Life Inspirations Behind Declan Howell
In The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's second season, our intrepid heroine Midge Maisel faces down that dilemma that's been haunting creative professionals forever: What is the cost of creativity and art? While some of her conflict stems from her wild, complicated family situation and her tangled love life, she's also questioning how much she's willing to put into her career, even at the expense of other aspects of her life. That inner conflict is put on full display in the seventh episode of the season, where Midge meets Declan Howell (played by The Man in the High Castle's Rufus Sewell), a drunken but brilliant painter.

Declan's role in the story is fairly simple: to represent, both for Midge and for viewers, the dark, lonely, and sometimes brutal side of being an artist. He creates spectacular art, but his pursuits cost him his home life and his family, leaving him alone in

The Umbrella Academy: Watch the Wickedly Fun Trailer For Netflix's New Superhero Series

The Umbrella Academy: Watch the Wickedly Fun Trailer For Netflix's New Superhero Series
If the recent X-Men movies had a better sense of humor about them, perhaps they would've ended up resembling something akin to Netflix's latest stab at the superhero genre: The Umbrella Academy, a TV series adapted from the comics created by My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá.

In the first trailer, we're introduced to a world where, on the same day in October 1989, 43 women around the world wake up and miraculously (and inexplicably) deliver babies, despite having shown no symptoms of pregnancy prior to that. Seven of those children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who intends to use their superhuman abilities to save the world by forming the Umbrella Academy. However, the family/team fractures in their teenage years, and they all go their own separate ways. Sorry, universe.

6 Ways Mary Poppins Returns Is Just as Magical as the Original

6 Ways Mary Poppins Returns Is Just as Magical as the Original
Rebooting a classic film is always tricky: you want it to pay tribute to the original, but it also needs to stand on its own. While many reboots fail to find the right mix of nostalgia and originality, Mary Poppins Returns finds the perfect balance by adding a spoonful of sugar. Of course, one thing that works in the film's favor is that it's actually not a remake but a sequel. Set 20 years later, Mary Poppins (now played by Emily Blunt) returns to a grown-up Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) to teach them a few more valuable lessons. Not only is the film filled with sweet nods to the 1964 film, but it also brings the classic story to life in a whole new way. If you're a huge fan of Mary Poppins, here are just a few reasons you'll fall in love with the new film.
