AVClub: As far as Oscar winner hosts go, Brie Larson wasn’t given much of a showcase in her first hosting gig. Larson’s a bright and engaging presence—there’s a reason why she was one of the few elements Community carried over from its infamous “gas leak” season. Nonetheless, the Room actress was only in a handful of sketches, and never as the centerpiece, her clear but endearing discomfort during her monologue suggesting that Larson’s not especially comfortable with the whole live TV idea. Still, she wasn’t bad. Just sort of forgettable. Which could be said for much of SNL tonight—but for a few especially sharp sketches and one long-absent recurring character we’ll get to later.
