Scottsdale native Emma Stone, who was nominated for the best supporting actress Academy Award for her role in “The Favourite” this year, showed off her comedic side this weekend when she hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the fourth time.

Here are some of the episode’s best moments:

Monologue

Stone opens the show saying she heard some of the cast members whispering and possibly planning a surprise to honor her fourth time hosting.

She brings multiple cast members on stage who sing her an improvised song, give her a medical bracelet from Aidy Bryant’s wrist and surprise her with “special guests,” who are really just the actors doing impressions.

Chalmers Reserve event wine

Stone and Kyle Mooney played a couple tasked with creating an ultra-cheap wine and explaining how it’s made with fake Italian accents.

The wine is 72 percent alcohol and contains moldy grapes, corn and strong dye that will stain teeth, they say.

Ladies Room

Stone, Cecily Strong and Leslie Jones play three women who go to the women’s bathroom in a nightclub to sing, dance and talk about relationship problems.

Kenan Thompson busts in to tell the group that the club closed months ago and they are actually in the fitting room of a clothing store.

The skit, barring Thompson’s part, is a recreation of the 1984 music video for “Ladies Room” by all-female rhythm and blues group Klymaxx.

Royal Baby Video

Stone plays an ex-girlfriend of England’s Prince Harry, who is making a video for his future child.

Stone drunkenly recounts the details of the breakup and “jokingly” asks the prince to kiss her on camera.

“The View”: Jenny McCarthy on vaccines

This spoof of daytime talk show “The View” featured Bryant parodying “Princess of Arizona” Meghan McCain, as well as Stone playing the show’s former cohost Jenny McCarthy.

Stone mocks McCarthy’s opposition to vaccines, saying that Google is her doctor and that she gets her information from Reddit.

“I mean these vaccinations are so unnecessary,” Stone says. “Like the polio vaccine — how many people do you know with polio?”

Kate McKinnon playing Joy Behar responds, “None, because we get vaccinated,” drawing the audience’s laughter.
