Having just received their second Oscar nominations, Carey Mulligan and Daniel Kaluuya will have their very first Saturday Night Live experience.
Kaluuya will come in on April 3 as host with ST. Vincent as his musical guest. This marks the second time ST. Vincent will appear on the show. Mulligan will make her appearance on April 10, as show host, while Kid Cudi joins her on the set as a musical guest for the first time.
The late-night sketch comedy and variety show is expected to make a comeback after a short break on March 27 with Maya Rudolph returning as host for the second time and musical guest Jack Harlow joining for the first time.
The last episode aired on February 27 featured ‘Bridgerton’ star Rege – Jean Page as host and Puerto Rican star Bad Bunny, who just won a Grammy Award for Latin Pop or Urban Album, on the musical guest bench.
Both Mulligan and Kaluuya are in race for an Academy Award. The former is nominated in the best actress category for ‘Promising Young Woman’ and the latter nominated in the best supporting actor category with ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’.
Both stars have already picked up some win(s) since the start of the 2021 award season. Kaluuya won at the Golden Globe and Critic’s Choice Awards, while Mulligan lost at the Globe to ‘The United States Vs. Billie Holiday’ star Andra Day. She however won at the Critic’s Choice Awards, which positions her well as a major threat for the Oscars.
