MEDIA WINNER: SNL’s James Austin Johnson
It’s not easy being the new kid in class, especially when that class is broadcast nationally on live television. But James Austin Johnson held his own this weekend as one of the new members of Saturday Night Live’s cast for its 47th season, delivering a performance that has us looking forward to what he’ll contribute to NBC’s sketch comedy show.
