Washington [US], March 17 (ANI): The much-loved American comedy show 'Saturday Night Live' has added Oscar-nominated actors Daniel Kaluuya and Carey Mulligan to the roster of its hosts.

According to Fox News, the popular show 'SNL' has booked the stars for April 3 and 10, respectively.

St. Vincent will serve as the musical guest for the episode hosted by the 32-year-old Kaluuya, while Mulligan will welcome Kid Cudi.

The group of performers will follow 'SNL' alum Maya Rudolph's hosting gig on March 27 with musical guest Jack Harlow.

Rudolph's episode will serve as the show's return from its first hiatus of the year. Previous episodes of the show's 46th season have been hosted by Bill Burr, Nick Jonas, Adele, and 'Schitt's Creek' star Dan Levy among others.

As reported by Fox News, most recently, Kaluuya earned his second Oscar nomination for 'Judas and the Black Messiah.' He also nabbed a Golden Globe for his work just weeks ago, becoming an early favourite to win the Academy Award. Previously, Kaluuya was nominated in 2018 for his performance in the film 'Get Out.'

On the other hand, Mulligan earned her second nomination this year as well for the flick 'Promising Young Woman.' Her first nomination came in 2010 for 'An Education.'

Per Fox News, St. Vincent's performance will come just over a month before the May 14 release of her upcoming album, 'Daddy's Home.' The alternative musician has won two Grammy Awards, one in 2014 and the second in 2018.

For his part, Cudi released his album 'Man On the Moon III: The Chosen' late last year and has earned himself one Grammy and three additional nominations over the course of his career.

Since the season's October 2020 debut, music acts like Megan Thee Stallion, Morgan Wallen, Bruce Springsteen, and Dua Lipa have all performed on 'Saturday Night Live.'

'SNL' won six Emmys, several in the production categories, last year. The 48-year-old actor Rudolph won an award for portraying now-Vice President Kamala Harris and alum Eddie Murphy also won an award when he returned to host the show. (ANI)
