Despite a chaotic year, Saturday Night Live is ending 2020 with a bang!

Hosting on Saturday Night Live is a huge deal. Being popular is just one of the requisites for someone to be invited as a host; you have to be one of the greats. It may as well be a celebrity’s gauge how far they’ve come, career-wise.

NBC’s long-running live variety show is nearing the end of its 46th season, and set to host one of the last episodes is Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet. This marks the young actor’s hosting debut, and also his first time appearing on the prestigious comedy show.

Saturday Night Live kicked off its latest season on October 3, with Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Issa Rae, Adele, John Mulaney and Chappelle hosting the first six episodes, respectively. Big names like Justin Bieber, H.E.R., The Strokes, and Megan Thee Stallion have also appeared as the musical guests.

A solid lineup

Apart from Timothée Chalamet whose recent projects involve big-time titles like ‘Little Women,’ ‘The French Dispatch,’ and the star-studded ‘Dune,’ the two other remaining episodes are to be hosted by an Emmy winner, and a celebrated former SNL star.

SNL’s December 5 episode will see ‘Ozark’ star Jason Bateman wielding his comedic power as the host. Joining him is American singer Morgan Wallen, whose musical guesting was initially scheduled in October but was pushed back due to COVID-19 safety protocols.

Lastly, former SNL powerhouse ‘Kristen Wiig’ will be returning to Studio 8H as host for the 4th time since her departure in 2012. ‘Wiig,’ who stars as Cheetah in the upcoming film ‘Wonder Woman 1984‘ will be joined by Dua Lipa, who had 6 GRAMMY nominations including Album of the Year for ‘Future Nostalgia.’
