Rachel Brosnahan to host SNL
Los Angeles, Jan 8 (IANS) Rachel Brosnahan, the star of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning Amazon series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, is set to host “Saturday Night Live”. She will host the January 19 episode of the NBC sketch comedy series, reports variety.com.
This will mark Brosnahan’s first time hosting the show. Greta Van Fleet will make their debut as musical guest. The band recently received four 2019 Grammy Award nominations and their first full-length studio album “Anthem of the Peaceful Army” debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Rock chart.
The announcement comes just one day after Brosnahan picked up her second Golden Globe award for the show, winning for the second year in a row in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy award category.
The critically acclaimed comedy series follows Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a 1950s housewife from New York’s Upper West Side who discovers an uncanny knack for stand up comedy after storybook life falls apart. The second season debuted in December, with Amazon having ordered a third season back in May.
