'Precious' Gabourey Sidibe on SNL: Funny or flop?



Gabourey Sidibe's "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig on April 25 was highly anticipated, in large (sorry) part because of Howard Stern's vocal insistence that the "Precious" star would never work again after being nominated for an Oscar this year because she is -- and we quote -- "the size of a planet."

The perky plus-sized actress proved she was game doing comedy skits, such as this one featuring the odious Hamilton (the guy with the trained hawk) trying to woo her back into his arms. And she did give it her all so maybe any failings are not hers but (as usual) the SNL writers.
