SNL Recap: Matt Damon Hosts And Does Matthew McConaughey Impression, Pete Davidson Makes Brief Appearance After Cry For Help

by 2 years ago

Matt Damon first hosted Saturday Night Live in 2002 and he returned this week for the TV show’s final show of the year. In this week’s SNL, we learn Damon does a pretty decent Matthew McConaughey impression and Pete Davidson did appear on the show, but it was very, very brief.

SNL castmembers flaunted their best celebrity impressions as their character made a bid to be the host of the 2019 Oscars after Kevin Hart stepped down following his homophobic tweets that resurfaced. The cast did impressions of Tiffany Haddish, Michelle Wolf, Michael Strahan, Terry Crews, Ellen Degeneres, Kanye West, Roseanne Barr, and Pete Davidson did an impression of Rami Malek. Damon pretended to be Chris Hemsworth and pulled off a pretty decent Matthew McConaughey impression.

Damon reprises his role from Good Will Hunting, but this time he is a talking promotional ornament from the 1997 movie. Damon and other misfit ornaments introduce drunk Santa ornament to the misery that is being an unwanted ornament that is relegated to the back of the Christmas tree facing the wall.

Neighbors share good food and good company during a dinner to celebrate the holidays and friendship. Until a vicious clash between Damon’s “ride-or-die” Weezer fan and Leslie Jones’ Weezer fan who only likes the bands early stuff and doesn’t even appreciate Weezer’s cover of Toto’s Africa.

Damon plays a dad who has the “best Christmas ever,” but getting to the end of the “best Christmas ever” wasn’t always so great.

Cops celebrate the Christmas season by busting a fellow cop’s balls, but it’s all is forgiven because it’s the holidays, even though they are sleeping with his sister and accidentally shot his wife at his wedding.

Pete Davidson posted an alarming Instagram post early Saturday — “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore.”

New York police performed a wellness check on Davidson on Saturday. The 25-year-old comedian and SNL star also joined the Twitter feud between his ex-fiancé Ariana Grande and Kanye West.

On this week’s Saturday Night Live, Davidson was hardly seen, especially in the live segments. Davidson appeared in the pre-recorded video skit about finding a host for the 2019 Oscars and he made one very brief appearance to introduce musical guests Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson.
