<i>Saturday Night Live</i>: The Best and Worst of Edward Norton

No one could quite figure out why Edward Norton hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend. Not because he isn't talented enough to (in fact, he's better at impressions than SNL's in-house impression guy Jay Pharoah) or that he isn't easy on the eyes (seriously, that guy is getting better looking the older he gets), but because he had absolutely nothing to promote. (Recent host Miley Cyrus, on the other hand, hijacked his opening monologue to announce that she'd be going on tour). But unlike last week's host Bruce Willis, who also had nothing to pimp except himself, Norton gave the material his all and helped turn out a halfway decent episode. That said, a lot of credit has to be given to musical guest Janelle Monae, a wildly entertaining performer who proves you can have style and substance.

Palin’s SNL Gambit: Mostly Dumb

Palin’s <i>SNL</i> Gambit: Mostly Dumb After much speculation, denials and other typically political subterfuge, GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin finally made an appearance on SNL this past Saturday. Contrary to rumors, Palin did not parody Tina Fey's American Express commercial. In fact, of the two skits she appeared in, she played herself in both of them, which I believe is code for "this ho can't act worth a damn." Luckily, her presence didn't dissuade Tina Fey from putting on another spot-on Palin impersonation, this time with extra meta winking -- the two, dressed identically, passed one another as Fey left the podium and Palin took the stage.

<i>To Rome With Love</i>: Woody Allen Remembers His Roman Holiday

If you ever want to see a group of jaded movie journalists get truly starstruck, stick them in a room with a filmmaking legend like New York's own Woody Allen. The writer/director/actor/nerd icon was front and center at a recent press conference for his latest film To Rome With Love, and despite being flanked by some of the movie's big-name stars (among them Alec Baldwin, Penélope Cruz and Ellen Page) all of our eyes -- and most of our questions -- were directed at him. Here's what Allen had to say about working in Italy's lovely capital, acting on camera and why he rarely makes movies in his native city anymore:
