Naturally, they joined Natalie Portman in roasting the Academy for its lack of female representation in the Best Director nominee pool. Then things got super weird and sort-of musical and honestly, a little confusing. It was still a pretty effective comedic turn from the two SNL alums (with a little bit of everything), but Grammy VIP Billie Eilish’s puzzled face said a lot. Some might say that it even set a mood.
Well, not everyone felt that way. A lot of people actually enjoyed Kristen and Maya’s turn on the stage! Maybe they should even host next year. They couldn’t possibly pull a Kevin Hart on everyone.
moving forward, i need kristen wiig and maya rudolph to host everything ever

Every awards show should:
Be under 2 hours
Have Laura Dern win at least one award
Have some combination of Tina Fey/Maya Rudolph/Kristen Wiig/Amy Poehler host
Have Lady Gaga sing a Sound of Music medley

Ok so Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig host next year. Done.

You can judge for yourself on how Rudolph and Wiig did onstage by watching their two introductory segments below. Fine work, ladies.
