In a sketch about a New York Film Festival actress roundtable, this week’s installment of NBC’s Saturday Night Live tackled the #MeToo movement and representation in Hollywood. The episode’s host Awkwafina played Sandra Oh and castmember Kate McKinnon played her recurring character Debette Goldry, who was slightly out of touch with current times.
“There were plenty of great roles for Asian women in the 1940s, and I should know — I played all of them,” McKinnon said as Goldry, playfully commenting on the long history of whitewashing in Hollywood.
When talking about women coming forward with allegations against men in the industry, Goldry came forward to confess that she was responsible for the Lindbergh kidnapping.
As usual, Goldry remained somewhat nonchalant about the bad treatment she endured in the industry, underscoring just how normalized it used to be.
“Male allies? That means gay husband, right?” Goldry asked. She ended the roundtable by taking one of her “cigarette naps.”
