Maya Rudolph Loved Hosting ‘SNL’ as Much as We Loved Watching Her Host


Maya Rudolph’s episode hosting SNL was pretty special, which is why we picked it as the best of the season. Maya seems to agree: “There was something palpable and magical about that night. I really felt joyful. And that’s so rare.” So, the LA Times had her walkthrough her favorite sketches of the night as a lead up the Emmy nominations. On the thrill of the “Cosby Obama” sketch:

“I’m a huge ‘Cosby Show’ fan. Doing that dance like she did during the opening credits was one of the most exciting life moments. It goes: My children’s births, ‘Cosby.’ No. Just kidding. But it was really exciting and fun. I genuinely felt joyful.”
“I get a lot of people quoting that line to me now… For proper effect, just make sure to draw out the two syllables in “whimsy.”
