Carey Mulligan’s ‘SNL’ opening monologue crushed by Marcus Mumford – Deadline

Tonight Carey Mulligan made her debut as a host on Saturday Night Live, talk in his opening monologue about how nice it is to be outside the house.

“Oh my God. It’s so wonderful to be here. They just told me I was the first English person to host this show,” she joked, “and as I say out loud. high, I realize that might not be true. (British actor Daniel Kaluuya hosted the show last week.)

Given that production was shut down for much of 2020, Mulligan spent a year in quarantine in the English countryside with her husband Marcus Mumford (lead singer of Mumford & Sons) and two young children. “So it’s very exciting to be in a place where the stores are open,” she admitted. “I never thought I would say that, but stepping into a Banana Republic was a magical experience.

During the lockdown, Mulligan said she put her “dramatic energy” into her children’s bedtime stories. “They’ve gotten a lot longer, a lot of recently divorced dragons and unicorns with secret pill habits,” she joked. “My kids would be like, ‘Mom, please. It is two o’clock in the morning. Let’s sleep. So I’m very excited to be here tonight and let some of that energy out. “

It was especially exciting for Mulligan to appear on SNL, given that her husband and her band have appeared as musical guests three times in the past. Supposedly, Mumford would monitor his wife’s appearance from home. Subsequently, however, Mumford appeared in the audience and Mulligan feigned surprise.

“What a surprise, nice to see you,” she said. “Uh, where are the kids?”

“I left them with the Sons,” said Mumford unmoved. “I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

Since its first appearance on SNL, Mumford said he couldn’t get the experience out of his head, so he encouraged Mulligan to get as much of it as possible. “I wanted to ask,” he continued, “have they booked a musical guest for tonight? If they end up needing someone, I’m very happy to do that.

He then took out his acoustic guitar, which he began strumming to the melody of his hit song, “Little Lion Man”.

Unfortunately for Mumford, Tonight already has his musical guest in Kid Cudi, who is also making his first appearance on the series.

A two-time Oscar nominee, Mulligan is in the spotlight more recently with her stint in Emerald Fennell’s dark and comedic revenge thriller, Promising young woman.
