Frankly, These Impressions of Lady Gaga and Glenn Close on SNL Are the Best I’ve Ever Seen
A few of this year’s Oscar nominees stopped by Saturday Night Live‘s Feb. 16 episode of Celebrity Family Feud to compete a week ahead of the big show. And by “Oscar nominees,” of course we mean the SNL cast dressed up as the contenders. In this episode, Hollywood stars Lady Gaga (Melissa Villaseñor), Bradley Cooper (Kyle Mooney), Spike Lee (Don Cheadle), Glenn Close (Kate McKinnon), Sam Elliott (Beck Bennett), Olivia Colman (Cecily Strong), Rami Malek (Pete Davidson), and Mahershala Ali (Chris Redd) compete for the prize.
While all of the impressions were pretty spot-on, one of the best ones had to be Villaseñor as Lady Gaga. We already knew she could play a perfect Gaga based on her appearance in the Feb. 9 episode, but her most recent portrayal of Mother Monster is the quality content we deserve. And when she reveals what makes her “feel sexy,” things take a bit of a wild turn. Watch her – and McKinnon’s hilariously dramatic depiction of Close – in the clip above!
