Gabourey Sidibe, Host SNL!

Gabourey Sidibe, the beloved star of Precious, will get a big career boost soon as she gets to host Saturday Night live!

The actress who quickly became a favorite after her debut in the heartbreaking and inspiring film by Lee Daniels, had never even done much acting before, but showed incredible gifts and presence, and is widely considered a breath of fresh air for Hollywood. And her many interview appearances have shown she is just as charming in real life as she was on the screen, and should have a great career ahead of her.

This will be Gabby's first shot at showing off her comedy chops, and we hope she passes the test with flying colors! I wonder if they will have a musical number with Samberg lined up. Just please don't do any skits that involve Kenan dressed in drag, please, enough already.

Looks like Howard Stern was wrong about Gabourey Sidibe and her career options. The Oscar-nominated actress and star of Precious is set to host Saturday Night Live this spring, reports E! The bubbly young star has expressed an interest in comedic roles and her SNL debut will certainly show whether or not she has the chops. Will you watch?
