Date:

Emma Stone achieved a milestone while taking on hosting duties for the fifth time on Saturday Night Live, and both Tina Fey and Candice Bergen made surprise cameos to help celebrate.

The La La Land actress, 35 – who recently appeared on the cover for W Magazine’s Art Issue – was officially inducted into the ‘five-timers club’ by the SNL alum and Murphy Brown star.

To kick off the opening monologue, Stone stepped onto the stage and was given a warm welcome by the audience.

The Easy A star was chic in a white, strapless corset top as well as a pair of pin-striped trousers that were secured with a black belt that wrapped around her waist. 

Once the applause began to die down, Emma excitedly sent gratitude to the cheering crowd and expressed, ‘It is so great to be back! It’s my fifth time hosting SNL.’

‘And it has always been my favorite show, and since I started hosting, it’s also become just a huge part of my life,’ Emma continued. 

She then gushed about creating ‘memories’ as well as ‘so many friends’ while making appearances on the sketch comedy series over the years. 

The star also recalled meeting her now-husband, Dave McCary, while filming an episode of SNL back in December 2016. He notably was a segment director on the show from 2013 through 2018. 

Stone then proudly stated, ‘I’m so honored to be joining the SNL five-timers club.’ Before she could continue, Tina Fey appeared on the stage, causing the audience to erupt in applause. 

The comedian – who was a cast member on the series from 1997 to 2006 – donned a velvet jacket that had the number 5 embroidered on the left side. 

The 30 Rock alum welcomed Emma to the club and added, ‘At 35-years-old, you are officially the youngest member. I am the second youngest at 53. But you’re going to love it in there.’

She continued to explain, ‘A few years ago, they even added a whole women’s section’ and revealed that the idea had actually come from Candice Bergen. 

The Book Club actress then suddenly appeared on the other side of Emma, and the crowd once again shared excited cheers and applause by the second, surprise cameo.

She jokingly replied with, ‘It’s got everything. Showers, a locker room, a big portrait with the eyes cut out so Martin Short can peek in.’ 

The Curse actress later told Bergen that she ‘should be proud of what you built.’ 

‘I am,’ the actress responded. ‘The women’s section started out as a small, quiet place to cry, but over the years, it became a big luxurious place to cry.’

Emma then asked Tina if the club existed when she was around and Fey answered, ‘No. Things were different in the 2010s. Network TV was in its heyday. My show 30 Rock was watched by 6 million people.’

When asked if that viewership was a lot, the comedian said, ‘At the time, no. But today, no.’

To conclude the opening monologue, Tina and Candice presented the Oscar winner with a five-timers jacket, which she happily put on. 

‘This has been a dream of mine since I was a kid, and it means so much that I get to share this moment with you guys,’ she had gushed on stage.

Also during the latest SNL episode, Emma had the chance to show off her comedic skills by taking part in a variety of sketches.  

During the first skit of the night, the beauty portrayed a contestant alongside Heidi Gardner and Punkie Johnson on a game show called Question Quest – which was hosted by Michael Longfellow. 

The premise of the show was that contestants needed to correctly answer questions from numerous different topics.

The first question was from an American History segment, and asked the contestants who invented the cotton gin. Emma’s character, Jen, hit the buzzer and answered Eli Whitney – which was correct. 

The host then immediately jumped into announcing her prize, which had Stone a bit confused. ‘Oh, wow after one question? Nice.’ 

It was then revealed that she had won a 37-year-old tortoise named Speedy. The host then told her that the tortoise had actually been his since he was a little boy. 

Stone asked how long a tortoise could live, which prompted Longfellow to make the contestants try to guess the answer. 

Both Heidi and Punkie gave wrong estimates, and Emma stated, ‘It can’t be more than 100 years.’

The prize announcer humorously stated that Emma was now in a 190-year contract with the tortoise - which had previously belonged to the host

He simply responded with, 'Because it was done to me. I would say join us next week, but this was the first and last episode of Question Quest'

‘More than 100 years is correct. 150 to 190 to be exact,’ the host announced, which made Stone’s character appear shocked at how long a tortoise could live. 

Due to her accidently answering the question correctly, she won another prize which was lettuce and peppers to feed Speedy.

However, Emma’s character deemed her winning to be ‘not fair.’ The host then offered that the other contestants could try to win the tortoise. However, both Heidi and Punkie failed to answer other questions. 

‘Speedy is all yours!’ Longfellow told Stone, who begged, ‘Why did you do this to me?’ 

He simply responded with, ‘Because it was done to me. I would say join us next week, but this was the first and last episode of Question Quest. I’m going to start my new life!’ and promptly left the tortoise with Emma.
