Maya Rudolph as Oprah in 'Saturday Night Live' dress rehearsal -- VIDEO

Posted on

CRITICS CHOICE MOVIE AWARDSCouldn’t get enough of Maya Rudolph‘s stellar outing as Saturday Night Live host last weekend? (It looks like more than 50 percent of PopWatchers loved her efforts, as you’ve voted the SNL alum the best host of the season so far.) Well, you’re in luck: SNL has released a bonus moment from the Bridesmaids star’s recent appearance and its the funny lady doing none other than her beloved Ooooooppppraaaaaahhhhh impression.

It’s a bit of a bummer that her take on Oprah Winfrey didn’t make it into the live show (though the episode was chock full of impressions, with the red carpet super star playing everyone from Beyoncé to Maya Angelou to First Lady Michelle Obama) but Rudolph sure did look like she was having fun with old pals Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers during the dress rehearsal, didn’t she? Watch the nixed “Weekend Update” Oprah appearance below and decide who has better ideas for OWN: SNL or Jimmy Kimmel?

And lest you forget, Lindsay Lohan will be taking over hosting duties this weekend for a brand new episode of SNL.
