Saturday Night Live caps of 2014 by tapping Amy Adams to host the final episode of the year. This marks the second time for the 40-year-old actress. She previously helmed an episode of the long-running show back in 2008 with Vampire Weekend as the musical guest.

It’s safe to say Adams is far more excited having One Direction on the show with her. She hilariously freaks out when she realizes the British boy band will be sharing the stage. Hardcore fangirls have nothing on Amy. Even Paul Rudd, who joked about being the group’s number one fan back when he hosted last year, isn’t at her fanatic level. Rudd versus Adams? My money is on Amy :)

Check out the other promos below which feature Taran Killam and Adams play with imaginary snow, a marriage proposal and other amusing moments. Be sure to catch Amy this Saturday on NBC. It should be a good one.

cameron-diaz-snl-host-2014

Off the heels of Chris Rock generating the best Saturday Night Live ratings since February, the show reveals Cameron Diaz and Woody Harrelson have been tapped to host in November. Like Rock, both Diaz and Harrelson have hosted previously.

To promote the next installment of The Hunger Games, the former Cheers star heads to Studio 8H on November 15. This will mark his third time on the show. The last time more than two decades ago in 1992. The musical guest for his episode will be Kendrick Lamar.

Cameron notches her fourth time at bat on the November 22 show. She previously hosted in 2005. With her turn as Miss Hannigan in the Annie remake coming in December, I expect a sketch inspired by the musical to part of the show. Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson will team up as the musical guests. Fingers crossed the “Treasure” singer revisits “Sad Mouse.” Mars killed that during his previous visit.

Which episode do you think will garner better ratings and funnier skits? Sound off below.

Since leaving the show in 1993, Chris Rock has surprisingly only hosted Saturday Night Live once. That was back in 1996 with The Wallflowers as the musical guest. This weekend, the 49-year-old comedian returned for a second time.

Rock kicked off the show with a controversial opening monologue. He delivered jokes about the Boston Marathon bombings, anti-gun regulations, the commercialization of Christmas and 9/11. Rock joked the corporate sponsor of the rebuilt Twin Towers should be Target. Too soon?

The political trend continued throughout the show. ISIS appeared in pitch perfect parody of ABC’s hit show Shark Tank. The terrorist group were seeking a $400 million investment for a 1 percent stake in their organization. The cast perfectly embodied the sharks.

Another highlight was a mock advert promoting a new drug called Swiftamine. It’s targeted at adults who experience vertigo after enjoying a Taylor Swift song.

Check out the hilarious clip and the others below, along with a medley performed by the one and only Prince. In a first for the show, he performed one eight-minute performance as opposed to taking to the stage twice for two four-minute sets.

I-G-G-Y brought her Australian swagger to Studio 8H this weekend, wowing audiences with two solid back-to-back performances. The 24-year-old rapper didn’t embarrass herself in her Saturday Night Live debut.

If Azalea had any nerves, she certainly didn’t let them affect her. Sadly, the same can’t be said about Danish singer MØ. The talented yet relatively unknown singer appeared/disappeared numerous times during “Beg For It.” Iggy somewhat addressed it afterward by writing, “MO congratulations on your first television! (It only gets easier!)” on her Instagram profile.

Rita Ora made a surprise appearance during the “Fancy” and “Black Widow” medley. Too bad Charli XCX didn’t tag along as well. It wasn’t the same with the background vocalists singing the hook of “Fancy.” Check out both performances below and weigh in afterward.

SNL Alum Jan Hooks Dead At 57

Saturday Night Live alum Jan Hooks is dead at the age of 57. No official cause of her death has been revealed, but TMZ reports that she had been battling a “serious illness.”

Hooks starred on the long-running sketch comedy show from 1986 to 1991, working alongside Dana Carvey and Phil Harman during one of the show’s glory periods. Her most memorable skits included celebrity impersonations of Kathie Lee Gifford, Hillary Clinton, Tammy Faye Baker and Sinead O’Connor. But it was the combo duo of Nora Dunn and herself as the hilarious Sweeney Sisters that is most beloved.

After her stint on SNL, Jan appeared on Designing Women, 3rd Rock From The Sun and 30 Rock. Her big screen credits include Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Coneheads. Our condolences go out to her family and friends. Check out some of her memorable moments on SNL below.

Saturday Night Live’s milestone 40th Season got off to a rocky start. The Chris Pratt and Ariana Grande combo proved not so potent.

At least not according to the ratings. The season premiere scored a soft 4.0 overnight household rating and a 2.1 adults 18-49 demo. Last year’s opener featuring Tina Fey and Arcade Fire scored with a 4.7 household rating and a 2.7 adults 18-49 demo.

In terms of skits, at least there were a few gems. Naturally, with Guardians of the Galaxy being a summer blockbuster, there was a faux Marvel movie trailer in the mix. The NFL was mentioned in a couple of sketches. Not surprising given all the bad press the league has garnered. Check out all the vids below including Michael Che’s debut as the Weekend Update co-anchor. He’s the first black SNL cast member to hold that gig.

Saturday Night Live kicks off Season 40 this weekend. Chris Pratt captains the ship with Ariana Grande as the musical guest. It’s the first time Pratt, and I predict not the last, he’ll be hosting the long-running program.

With Guardians Of The Galaxy being such a big blockbuster this summer, naturally the promos featuring Kate McKinnon reference the smash film. Watch McKinnon rub up on Pratt’s ‘Star-Lord,’ ask who Anna Faris is and more amusing moments below.

OMG!!! Please say it isn’t so. Who’s going to play Whoopi Goldberg for future skits on Saturday Night Live? #travesty

According to TMZ, the show’s most seasoned active performer is planning to leave at the end of the 2014-15 season. Their sources say Kenan Thompson wanted out last season, but producer Lorne Michaels convinced him to stay since there was massive cast changes last year.

The 36-year-old joined the show in 2003, making him the most tenured African-American cast member in the show’s 40-year history. Reportedly, he wants to move to the West Coast with his wife and new baby to pursue new opportunities.

Will you miss Kenan? What’s your favorite performance of his? Weigh in below after reliving his hilarious impersonation of Whoopi.

UPDATE: EW.com reached out to an SNL spokesperson. They said the report is “inaccurate as the season hasn’t even started and cast decisions aren’t made until the end of the season.”
