Gabourey Sidibe Nabs 'SNL' Hosting Gig
By PopEater Staff Posted Apr 1st 2010 03:12PM
the cover of Vogue, but the 'Precious' Oscar nominee will indeed host 'Saturday Night Live' on April 24. PEOPLE confirmed the speculation that had been spreading across the Web, as Sidibe's rep broke the news to the magazine. We know she can do drama, but can Gabby do comedy? We'll find out in late April, but in the meantime, watch the 'Precious' trailer and vote below!
Sadly for Sidibe, Justin Timberlake -- who she's admitted fancying -- won't be taking the stage as the musical guest for the night. Still, knowing JT's penchant for Andy Samberg and 'SNL,' we wouldn't be surprised if Mr. 'Sexyback' popped in for a funny cameo.
The 26-year-old Sidibe, who was nominated this year for her turn in the critically-acclaimed film 'Precious,' has made headlines lately not just for her movies, but because of her size. PopEater's Rob Shuter reported recently that Gabby had no shot of a Vogue cover spread because of her large stature. Weeks earlier, Howard Stern put Sidibe's size in the media by saying she'll never get a good acting gig again because of her frame. Our readers disagreed, and rallied behind Miss Sidibe.
