Live From Hollywood, It's Sunday Night!

Wiig is nominated for Best Original Screenplay for co-authoring last year's gut-buster Bridesmaids. She is the 10th performer to have a regular Saturday night gig in New York and a Sunday night date in Los Angeles.

Others include Dan Aykroyd (Driving Miss Daisy), Joan Cusack (Working Girl and In and Out), Robert Downey Jr. (Chaplin), Eddie Murphy (Dreamgirls), Bill Murray (Lost in Translation) and Randy Quaid (The Last Detail).

Don't forget SNL alum who have hosted, including this year's emcee Billy Crystal (his ninth appearance at the podium), as well as Chevy Chase (twice the host) and Chris Rock (once).

And get this: 52 Oscar winners have hosted SNL over the years, while 15 more Academy Award winners have served as SNL musical guests.
