I went with Murphy, Carvey, and Hartman as my three obvious no-brainer picks.

Then Mike Myers as a solid fourth.

Fifth? Tough call between the chubby guys. Eventually went with Belushi over Farley.

Why isn't Dana Carvey challenging for the lead? He did all sorts of great things. He makes my humor meter go "Schwing!"

There is no separation here. One vote separates the top 3. Two people are within 4 votes of getting in or staying on the outside. This is going to be going down to the wire. Just think how hard this will be tomorrow when we narrow it down to the champion.

In related news, Adam Sandler just set a record for most "Razzie" nominations with 11 beating the old record by fellow former SNL alum Eddie Murphy, who had 5 for his dud Norbit. Sandler has the unique distinction of being nominated as both worst actor and worst actress for Jack and Jill.

Chris Farley needs more love...

IMO the record doesn't match that. He was never the biggest star on the show or even the top 3. He was crazy funny but not the driving force behind the show as many on this list were. He was on the show at the same time as Hartman, Myers, Carvey and Sandler who just missed a spot in the top 10. I'd be hard pressed to say that he made more of a contribution than any of those performers. He's Belushi part 2 for the younger crowd. Difference was Belushi had a larger creative role in the whole show on a weekly basis.

Sophia Vergara = Charo 2.0

Vergara's way hotter than Charo was.

Her monologue was better than expected. (I liked her comment about how if viewers overlook her accent she'll overlook everyone staring at her tits all night, LOL.) The rest, as usual, was totally not funny.

Here's what I don't get. Everyone knows how it's SUPPOSED to work. Opening skit: funniest. Monologue: pretty damn good. Right after the monologue: funny pretaped "commercial". Those are supposed to be the gimmes. So when your opening skit isn't funny, and your opening fake "commercial" isn't funny ("Almost Pizza"? WTF?), then you know the show is going to suck balls. Whatever those writers get paid is too much. They could fire all of them and randomly pick a dozen CPers and we could come up with funnier bits.
