A "Saturday Night Live" skit based on the University of Oregon Duck football team did not leave Oregonians laughing. Taylor Lautner played the role of a made-up, Ducks backup Quarterback, Phil Pomeroy, who could not smile correctly for the camera.
According to their local news station KATU, the skit didn't tickle a funny bone.
"It wasn't funny regardless," said Duck T.J. Ward. "I'm waiting for the punch line or a joke or something. It was a little too silly for me."
No offense to any Oregonians, but they need to lighten up. Taylor is the perfect example of someone who doesn't take himself so seriously. For goodness sake, he portrayed Mikash, a foreign student who danced like Micheal Jackson, rapped and said he was gay. He then wore a mini skirt, played a girl who was on Team Edward, and kissed Robert Pattinson's picture. C'mon! Silly is funny!
Here are high quality screen captures of Taylor Lautner and Jenny Slate's Saturday Night Live skit where they battle Team Jacob vs. Team Edward (aka Lab Parnters).
When I watched SNL live I only paid attention to Taylor's performance, of course. But then I watched this skit again to take screen caps for ya'll, and I couldn't stop laughing at Slate!!! Her facial expressions are priceless! She has the biggest variety of stinky faces I have ever seen in one person.
Taylor Lautner deserves a big congratulations! His episode of Saturday Night Live received the highest TV ratings of the SNL season, according to TV by the Numbers. It was also the number one program of the night on the major networks, besting everything in prime-time.
Thank you all for showing your support! Congrats Taylor!!!

Taylor Lautner has been named Moviefone's #1 breakout star of 2009! This of course, is no surprise to us!
The equation for breakthrough star is quite simple: one part charisma, two parts talent and just a whole lot of luck. (Well, our formula might not be precise but you get the picture.) And the breakout performer must connect with an audience with a role that leaps off the screen.
2009 was a great year for breakout stars; here's our list of actors for whom 2009 will be just the beginning of a long, fruitful career....
Royally buffing up as the shapeshifting werewolf Jacob Black in the sequel 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon,' Taylor Lautner redefines teenage hunk in his breakout role. Graduating from Bella's long-haired admirer in the first film, Lautner is able to flex his muscles, quite literally, with a much larger, brooding part in the second vampire flick. There is a reason why Taylor beat out the rest of the notable names on this list for the top spot: sheer box office brawn. The Twihards have spoken: Team Jacob all the way -- well, for now at least.
