Justin Timberlake Vows Vengeance To Sarah Sherman For Oscar Snub In ‘SNL’ Promo

The Thursday night promo for this weekend’s Saturday Night Live took a dark turn.

In the third segment of the promo standups, host Dakota Johnson and musical guest Justin Timberlake heard SNL cast member Sarah Sherman lament her “Oscar snub,” a topic on the radar thanks to the nominations missing Greta Gerwig for Best Director and Margot Robbie for Best Actress.

Timberlake wonders: “Wait, what movie were you in?”

“No, not that kind of Oscar snub,” Sherman sats. “I asked Oscar the Grouch out, and he said, ‘Sorry, honey: I live in the trash. I don’t date it.’”

“You know what?” Timberlake responds angrily. “Just tell me how to get to Sesame Street and I will beat his a–!”
