Benedict Cumberbatch returns to host saturday night live For the second time over the weekend, and the famous actor took a mild poke at Will Smith’s Oscar controversy.
“I’m really thrilled to be back on hosting saturday night live, It’s been a really fun, good week. Although I have to be honest, because most sketch writers made me sketch every day, and most were about Doctor StrangeCumberbatch shared while standing on the iconic Studio 8H stage. “Which is great, I love that guy, I love playing characters… but I’ve been in other movies.”
Cumberbatch joked that executive producer Lorne Michaels asked him, “Like what?”
“And I said, ‘Okay, like’ dog power, And they said, ‘Nobody saw it,'” Cumberbatch recalled. “I said, ‘Come on, man, I was nominated for an Oscar for that.’ I mean, I didn’t win. I was defeated by Will Smith.”
“No, not physically!” Cumberbatch quickly added an apologetic hand, raising his hand. “Not physically.”
Switching gears, Cumberbatch then shared some sweet Mother’s Day messages for both his mom — whom he said is currently on vacation in Greece — and his wife, Sophie Hunter.
“My wife, Sophie, is in the audience tonight, and I want to wish her a very Happy Mother’s Day too,” he said before turning to the camera and delivering a formal address. “Hi, Sophie. It’s me, your husband, Little Benedict. I am constantly in awe of you. You gave birth to our three beautiful boys and that in itself is a small miracle, and according to you I am dressed as one It was a magician.”
“Though technically it’s a magician,” he added aside. “Wizards have robes, I have a cloak, that’s the whole point, don’t worry.”
