“Saturday Night Live” Books Oscar Nominees Carey Mulligan, Daniel Kaluuya for Hosting Gigs


“SNL” host bookings are improving thanks to the Oscars.

The late night show has engaged Oscar nominees Carey Mulligan and Daniel Kaluuya for shows before Academy Award voting ends.

Kaluuya comes in April 3rd. He’s nominated for Best Supporting Actor in “Judas and the Black Messiah.”

Mulligan follows the next week, nominated for Best Actress in “Promising Young Woman.”

Their respective musical guests will be St. Vincent and Kid Cudi.

Already booked for March 27th and Maya Rudolph and Jack Harlow.

With the pandemic, “SNL” was having a little trouble getting celebrities to commit to appearances. But Mulligan and Kaluuya are campaigning, and this should help them get votes. Mulligan’s show should be hilarious is they parody her movie and have her date and kill all the guys on the show.
