Saturday Night Live got underway for a 43rd season last night, with man of the moment Ryan Gosling back on hosting duties for the second time.
Never shy of indulging in some self-deprecating humor, Gosling poked fun at his role in Oscar nearly-winner La La Land and the notion that he, somehow, “saved” jazz music. Pulling up behind a piano, the actor’s soliloquy was eventually interrupted by co-star Emma Stone. “Ryan, you didn’t save jazz,” she said, before pausing. “WE saved jazz!”
Watch the footage above, and check out Gosling’s awkward promo cut with music guest JAY-Z below. We’ll be uploading more footage of last night’s SNL premiere as it surfaces, so stay tuned.
