"Saturday Night Live" brought back 19th century critic Jebidiah Atkinson (Taran Killam), a new Weekend Update favorite, on this week's episode. This time, the bitchy reviewer took on the current crop of Oscar nominees.

"I've been witness to every motion picture since the dawn of cinema, and I'm not impressed!" he exclaimed. "'Her'? Guess who was bored by this movie -- him!" he said as he pointed to himself. "Even the main character spent the whole movie texting."

"Don't get me started on 'Gravity,'" he said. "If I wanted to watch a depressed middle-aged woman float around for 90 minutes, I'd go to the YMCA pool."

He also went after some older Oscar winners. "'Annie Hall'? I'd rather let Woody Allen watch my kids than watch this movie again," he said to some audience groans. Acknowledging the current controversy surrounding Allen's past, Atkinson retorted to the crowd, "So let me get this straight, you trust him?!"
