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 (1989) and did get recognized by the Academy with a nomination for Best Actor for Lost in Translation (2003). See more »
