    First Betty White! Now Gabourey Sidibe. Saturday Night Live is racking up the unexpected and unpredictable female hosts to round out this season. The Oscar-nominated Sibide, who lost the Best Actress Academy Award for the title role in Precious to the currently martially beleaguered Sandra Bullock, will host the April 24 episode of SNL. The musical guest will be rock band MGMT.

    In addition to the SNL gig, her Academy Award nom and her Golden Globe and SAG nominations, Sidibe won an Independent Spirit Award for her work. In other SNL news, spectacled funny gal Tina Fey –love her!- will host the April 10 ep with Justin Bieber performing, while the former Mr. Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe, will tackle the April 17 hosting gig. Ke$ha is scheduled to be that ep's musical guest.

    Are you digging all these cool hosts that SNL is lining up right now?
