Official ‘Gwyneth Paltrow Sucks’ Thread

By 01.17.11

Obviously, today’s water cooler conversation is about last night’s Golden Globes, not this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow. But I have my habits, so I thought I’d post the relevant sketches from Saturday night. Besides, it’s a holiday. I owe it to the memory of Dr. King to not work very hard today. Wait, that came out wrong.

Anyway, even though Paltrow is a an annoying child of privilege, I still think she’s a talented actress who’s been in some films that I’ve enjoyed. That said, she ain’t funny. Her talent is best used by putting on a lot of eye makeup and making sad faces. The only time she makes me laugh is when her severed head ends up in a box. Watch the way she ruins this sketch:

That’s a potentially funny sketch — not to mention a novel way to introduce a musical act on “SNL” — but it falls flat because Paltrow can’t play a brassy music executive. Boo.

Thankfully, Andy Samberg and Pee-Wee Herman saved the show with one of my favorite digital shorts in a long time:
