Watch Octavia Spencer Host "Saturday Night Live"
Spencer's opening monologue before the night's sketches touched upon various timely topics, including the fact that the award-winning and Oscar-nominated film, "Hidden Figures," was often referred to by the wrong name — "Hidden Fences" was a common mishap.
Seeing as though "there were three black movies at the Oscars this year" and "that’s a lot for America," Spencer took hold of the situation, joking that she had come up with the perfect solution — a "Hidden Fences Light" movie, which would tell "the story of three black women who send an introspective gay guy to build a fence on the moon."
