The Film Independent Spirit Awards were this weekend, hosted by SNL's Kate McKinnon and Kumail Nanjiani of Silicon Valley. The pair teamed up in a parody of the Todd Haynes-directed film Carol, which stars Cate Blanchett as Carol and Rooney Mara as Therese, two women who become involved in a love affair after Carol leaves her gloves her at the shop counter where Therese works. In the monologue, McKinnon called Carol “probably the most compelling story about someone leaving their gloves behind since The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
The sketch, set in a restaurant called Lezzies, features cameos by Wanda Sykes and Jane Lynch as two lesbians who invite Carol to go sit with them instead, saying "You've got two sure things sitting right here."
