‘SNL’: Kate McKinnon Channels Frances McDormand on ‘Family Feud: Oscar Edition’ to Joke About Inclusion Riders — Watch

And made a joke about inclusion riders, of course.

The Oscars have come and gone, but “Saturday Night Live” being a week behind means we were treated to one last round of jokes about the awards ceremony last night. Kenan Thompson resumed his “Family Feud” hosting duties once again for a special Oscar Edition, which pitted the winners — Frances McDormand (Kate McKinnon), Guillermo del Toro (Beck Bennett), Allison Janney (Heidi Gardner), and Jordan Peele (Chris Redd) — against the losers: Common (Sterling K. Brown), Sally Hawkins (Melissa Villaseñor), Willem Dafoe (Alex Moffat) and Timothée Chalamet (Pete Davidson).

McKinnon channeled the “Three Billboards” star’s righteous indignation over the last few months, beginning with a joke hinging on her call for inclusion riders: “For all you ladies out there, I have two words that are going to change our industry: burlap dress,” she said. Hers wasn’t the only worthy impression, however, with Redd making a pointed joke about Peele moving on from “Key and Peele”: “Sketch comedy is great, but at some point you have to move on,” he said to Thompson, who’s been on “SNL” since 2003.

Ditto Davidson’s take on Chalamet, which played up his awards-season adorableness: “Stop, come on, you’re embarrassing me! I’m so cute!” he says when he’s introduced for the first time. Watch the full skit below.
