During the Weekend Update segment, Bill Murray
talks about the upcoming Academy Awards. He discusses Aliens
(1986) being nominated for Best Picture by saying: "_Aliens is a sequel, they never win... This is another reason why I probably won't do Ghostbusters II. The deep, deep fear that the Academy will not recognize my work." Murray did end up doing Ghostbusters II

(2003). See more
