What a show! Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary Special on Sunday, Feb. 15, flew by in a flash, despite the three-and-a-half-hour running time. Combining new takes on old sketches with nostalgia-filled montages of episodes gone by, the star-studded television event brought laughs, surprises, and more than a few happy reunions. Check out the top 10 moments (in no particular order) below (plus a few honorable mentions)!
1. Celebrity Jeopardy Makes a Triumphant Return
This one’s a classic for a reason! Will Ferrell revived one of his most beloved SNL impressions — an annoyed and impatient Alex Trebek — in this new version of an old favorite. Joining him were Kate McKinnon as Justin Bieber, Darrell Hammond as Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin as Tony Bennett, Norm MacDonald as Burt Reynolds, Taran Killam as Christoph Waltz, Jim Carrey as Matthew McConaughey, and Kenan Thompson as Bill Cosby. Eight minutes of this wasn’t nearly enough.
