<i>Saturday Night Live</i>: The Best and Worst of Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga and her giant, unblinking eyes served as both host and musical guest on this weekend's Saturday Night Live. The main themes of the episode seemed to be Gaga poking fun of herself poking fun at other celebrities, and who could forget (no, really, just try and scrub it from your memory), simulating sex with R.

Hutcherson may not have the most natural comic timing, but he certainly gave it his all. It was a feat all the more impressive given it was a very mixed-bag episode. For everything that did work (an '80s lip synch to The Outfield's classic "Your Love"), there was just as much that really didn't (Hutcherson bringing his turkey girlfriend home for Thanksgiving dinner). Seriously, aside from the rather mediocre opening monologue, why weren't there more Hunger Games sketches? Either way, here are the best and worst moments from Hutcherson's episode of SNL:
