Rachel Brosnahan Fits in Perfectly in the First ‘Saturday Night Live’ of 2019

Rachel Brosnahan Fits in Perfectly in the First ‘Saturday Night Live’ of 2019
Rachel Brosnahan has found success pretending to be a comedian on the hit Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which is worth watching right this very minute if you haven’t already). But how did she fare taking the reins of one of the most revered comedy shows of all time? Saturday Night Live didn’t use […]

‘Mrs. Maisel’ Remains the Comedy Series to Beat, According to the PGAs

We’re hardly two weeks into 2019, and Amazon Studios’ “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is already the clear frontrunner in the Emmys race. For the second year in a row, the Producers Guild Awards named the Amazon series as the Danny Thomas Award for Outstanding Producer of Episodic Television, Comedy. This comes just two weeks after star Rachel Brosnahan scored her second Golden Globes trophy for her performance as Midge Maisel.

The show, held the January 19 at the Beverly Hilton, edged out a handful of up-and-coming comedy series hopefuls, including HBO’s “Barry,” Netflix’s “Glow,” and NBC’s “The Good Place,” all of which could have used the momentum of a PGA win.

Also clear from the “Mrs. Maisel” triumph: While the PGA offers clues as to what the Emmys will look like eight months from now, its eligibility rules make for an eccentric mix. Of the comedies, only “Mrs.

‘SNL’: Leslie Jones Parodies ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ With ‘Raunchiest Miss Rita’

‘SNL’: Leslie Jones Parodies ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ With ‘Raunchiest Miss Rita’
With The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s Rachel Brosnahan hosting this week’s Saturday Night Live, the series used it as an opportunity to parody the Amazon series with a spinoff called “The Raunchiest Miss Rita.”

The pre-taped digital short, which takes place at the familiar Gaslight Cafe, stars SNL comic Leslie Jones as the titular Miss Rita: a quiet employee-turned-foul-mouthed comedian who quickly garners an audience for her crass jokes. While she gets advice from Brosnahan’s Mrs. Maisel, her sets become more sexually explicit and expletive-filled.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Marvelous Rachel Brosnahan’s Debut Features Solid Sketches

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Marvelous Rachel Brosnahan’s Debut Features Solid Sketches
It’s like the new saying goes: New year, new “SNL.” Well, to be fair, it’s also kind of the same “SNL” — especially when considering what “the same ‘SNL’” means these days, on a larger front — but it is the first episode of 2019, which make it technically correct. (Which is the best kind of correct.)

And while “SNL” ended 2018 with a (surprisingly only) two-time guest host who seemed like an old pro at the whole thing (Matt Damon), 2019 begins with a first-time guest host and one with a much less recognizable name — “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” leading actress Rachel Brosnahan.

But she’s a Golden Globe and Emmy award winner, you know.

Host: Rachel Brosnahan

Given that scary time when the singing opening monologue became the ultimate crutch for this show, at first this monologue devolving right into that did not bode at that well. But then it did

Watch Greta Van Fleet Perform Spirited ‘Black Smoke Rising’ in ‘SNL’ Debut

Greta Van Fleet‘s debut album Anthem of the Peaceful Army has garnered a divisive response with comparisons to Led Zeppelin, but it’s also brought the Michigan rock outfit four Grammy nominations. “These are some of the first songs we ever released,” frontman Josh Kiszka told Rolling Stone. “So it’s kind of shocking. I didn’t expect us to get any nominations.”

Ahead of the upcoming awards show, the band became the first artist to play Saturday Night Live in 2019, bringing their 1970s rock ethos to Studio 8H.

Rachel Brosnahan on ‘SNL’: 3 Sketches You Have to See
Rachel Brosnahan hosted the first Saturday Night Live of 2019, but the show didn’t do much to highlight her comedic skills. Some hosts serve as the centerpiece of the proceedings. Others blend into the ensemble cast, making it seem as if they have always been there. But Brosnahan (through no fault of her own) didn’t get a chance to make much of an impression at all. Structurally, the show gave her minimal screen time: A long cold open, an extended “Weekend Update,” and a pre-taped segment all were minus

Rachel Brosnahan Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best & Worst Sketches
Rachel Brosnahan already has an Emmy for her starring role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Will she earn a second golden lady for her Saturday Night Live hosting debut?

The actress proved herself a fine host, though she was never given the flashy showcase that she deserved. She was even relegated to a supporting role in a sketch that spoofed her critically acclaimed Amazon comedy.

An underwhelming song-and-dance monologue was followed by a run of mostly mediocre skits, though there were a few highlights. What follows are my picks for the best and worst sketches.

‘Green Book’ Wins Producers Guild Award, Becomes Oscars Frontrunner

‘Green Book’ Wins Producers Guild Award, Becomes Oscars Frontrunner
On a night that could have profound implications for a tight Oscar race, “Green Book” was named the best-produced film of 2018 at the 30th Annual Producers Guild of America Awards.

The award makes director Peter Farrelly’s drama starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali the season’s first legitimate favorite to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. It has been a fiercely competitive and confusing year, with lots of criticism aimed at competing films and no film able to overcome the question marks that plague most of the top contenders.

Green Book” faces many of those questions in early January, immediately after it won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The film, about the unlikely friendship between a black concert pianist and his Italian-American driver in the early ’60s, was hit by criticism over past behavior from Farrelly

'SNL' Parodies 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' With 'The Raunchiest Miss Rita'
This week's Rachel Brosnahan-hosted episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live included a digital short inspired by her show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. A commercial parody advertised a new spinoff series called “The Raunchiest Miss Rita,” starring Leslie Jones as an extremely crass comedian.

Aidy Bryant did an impression of Alex Borstein’s Susie, and Kyle Mooney appeared as “an even more exasperated Tony Shalhoub.” Even after Midge takes her under her wing, Rita’s jokes get increasingly more expletive-laden and sexual.

The sketch ended with a Bill Cosby joke: “This next comic is a lot ...

Kate Beckinsale Is on the Hunt for Her Missing Husband in The Congo in Trailer for Amazon's The Widow

Here’s a trailer for the latest Amazon Prime series entitled The Widow starring Kate Beckinsale. Amazon has been hitting it out of the park with titles like Homecoming, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, among many others. So now when they release a new series, people are ready to take notice and watch. This series looks really fascinating.

The story follows a character named Georgia Wells (Beckinsale), who is on the hunt to uncover answers surrounding her husband’s mysterious disappearance after a plane crash where his body wasn’t recovered. She ends up in the Congo, but “has she lost everything or is she chasing a ghost?”

The Widow was directed by Sam Donovan (Humans) and Olly Blackburn (Donkey Punch), and it looks like a super exciting action thriller. I’ll be checking it out when it comes to Prime on March 1, 2019.

Darren Criss, Rachel Brosnahan on a roll after winning Emmys, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards

Darren Criss, Rachel Brosnahan on a roll after winning Emmys, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards
Just about everyone in Hollywood knows how hard it is to win an award. Winning three for one performance is another thing altogether. That’s what Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) and Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”) just experienced after adding a Critics’ Choice Award to their respective mantles last weekend, following victories at the Emmys and Golden Globes.

SEEDarren Criss is now the 3rd youngest Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor Golden Globe champ

Unlike with film awards, we don’t often see full sweeps on the TV side. Only five actors have pulled off a total sweep of the major TV prizes: Bryan Cranston for “Breaking Bad,” Claire Danes for “Homeland,” Tina Fey for “30 Rock,” Julianna Margulies for “The Good Wife” and Sarah Paulson for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” For Brosnahan and Criss to win three

Rachel Brosnahan Goes Noir In New ‘Saturday Night Live’ Promo

Rachel Brosnahan Goes Noir In New ‘Saturday Night Live’ Promo
Rachel Brosnahan goes noir for Saturday Night Live’s latest promo, dipping back in time and fashion beyond even her late ’50s-early ’60s Mrs. Maisel era.

“I had seen it many times before,” a cigarette-smoking, trench coat-wearing Brosnahan intones in the black-and-white Big Sleep-style clip, evoking both Bogie and Bacall. “But here I was. Saturday Night Live, where it all went down.

“But something was different. Where was the cast? It felt a little too dead.”

Enter Kenan Thompson, who explains what’s what and even manages to work in that longtime bit of internet nonsense Froosday. Google it.

Brosnahan, who recently won a Golden Globe Award for her starring role in Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, makes her SNL hosting debut this weekend (the January 19 episode also marks the show’s return from its annual holiday hiatus). Musical guest is Greta Van Fleet.
