'SNL': Kate McKinnon As Ellen Hangs Out With Jim Parsons As Johnny Weir

'SNL' Spoofs 'Ellen'

The same weekend Ellen DeGeneres hosts the Oscars for the third time, "Saturday Night Live" opened the show with an extended parody of the comedian's daytime talk show.

"It's so good to see all your 42-year-old faces!" said Kate McKinnon as DeGeneres. She mocked DeGeneres' penchant for dancing, as well as a few Oscars jokes ("'12 Years a Slave' -- that's about how I've been forced to dance on this show for the last 12 years. Just kidding, it's about slavery.")

The sketch included a few other impressions as well: Vanessa Bayer and Nasim Pedrad as "Ellen" favorites Sophia Grace and Rosie, Jay Pharoah as "Captain Phillips" costar Barkhad Abdi, and host Jim Parsons as Johnny Weir.

Lest you think that McKinnon was being too hard on DeGeneres, the sketch is all in good fun -- DeGeneres told McKinnon that she is her favorite "SNL" cast member when she had McKinnon on her show recently.
