Kerry Washington hosts 'Saturday Night Live' tonight -- talk about it here!

Kerry Washington is poised, intelligent, talented, stylish, and, of course, beautiful. But is she funny?

I want the answer to be “yes.” I hope the answer will be “yes.” But considering that the Scandal star’s last major comedy credit is a series of 1996 PBS “edutainment” shorts called Standard Deviants, one can be forgiven for having doubts. (Okay, she was also the other woman in Chris Rock’s I Think I Love My Wife — but the role wasn’t particularly funny, and also, the movie wasn’t particularly good.)

Of course, a lack of comedic experience doesn’t necessarily mean an actor has no aptitude for comedy. Before they became SNL favorites, Christopher Walken and Jon Hamm were known primarily as dramatic actors. After their first turns as host, though, both proved that they’ve got serious comedic chops as well. (Christoph Waltz also sort of belongs in this category, though his Oscar-winning turn in Inglourious Basterds was funny in a very dark sort of way.)

Could Kerry join the exclusive ranks of those unexpectedly great hosts — or will she turn in a performance more along the lines of unsuccessful Serious Actor hosts like January Jones or Daniel Craig?

Remember when Kanye West scowled through a set of Saturday Night Live promos earlier this year? (You don’t? What, you have more important things to think about or something?) Well, this newest spot features upcoming musical guest Eminem basically doing the same thing — though this time, it’s at least part of the joke.

MTV Movie Awards: 10 all-time greatest moments -- VIDEO

Tonight, MTV will broadcast its 21st annual Movie Awards. Truth: Twenty years ago, the golden popcorn for Best Movie went to A Few Good Men (following that: Menace II Society, Pulp Fiction, and Se7en). Safe to say, the show’s tone has changed pretty dramatically from those edgy early days when Dennis Miller hosted and Denzel Washington won Best Male Performance for Malcolm X. (I personally trace the trajectory shift back to the short-lived decision to create a Best Sandwich in a Movie category in 1996.) Yet even as the show’s gotten more mainstream (read: Twilight- and Hunger Games-saturated), it’s never failed to churn out cultural flashpoints that have ranged from steamy to awkward, subversive to surreal, and everything in between. Below, we run down the 10 most memorable moments.

Kelly Clarkson covers Eminem, Coldplay, and Foo Fighters -- VIDEO

Remember how much fun we had watching every single one of Kelly Clarkson’s covers from her Stronger tour?

Well, now that ABC’s singing competition Duets has (mercifully) wrapped, the original American Idol is back on the road for a summer tour with The Fray, and when she’s not recording theme songs for the Dallas Cowboys, she’s serving up more nightly fan-requested covers. Guess what? They’re as jaw-droppingly gorgeous as ever.

Over the last three weeks, Clarkson has brought her powerhouse pipes to songs like “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry, “We Are Young” by Fun., and “Not Over You” by Gavin DeGraw. On Friday, she even donned a zip-up hoodie and rapped “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.

Basically, you need to see these 14 performances, and because we care about you faithful readers so much, we’ve compiled them all below. Enjoy! READ FULL STORY
