Saturday Night Live takes aim at the trials and tribulations of women in Hollywood over the years in this hilarious sketch that will ring true for anyone who’s watched a live panel become a slow-motion car crash. Sexism in Hollywood is no laughing matter in real life, but Kate McKinnon’s raucous Debette Goldry, along with her Boone’s Farm–loving bestie Gaye Fontaine, make it downright hilarious on SNL. Just as Marion Cotillard (Cecily Strong) and Lupita Nyong’o (Sasheer Zamata) are discussing the hazards of being a modern woman in Hollywood, Debette and Gaye (played by Melissa McCarthy) break in with outlandish tales of sexual favors, lead paint, and secret children. As Gaye says, “That’s Tinseltown, baby!”
