Cameron Diaz Mocks Her Latest Film, “Annie”, on “Saturday Night Live”

Cameron Diaz hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the fourth time this weekend, poking fun at her upcoming musical film, "Annie."

The 2014 rendition of the classic musical stars African-American child actress Quvenzhane Wallis as the new "Little Orphan Annie." 

In "SNL's" spoof of the remake, Diaz portrayed Miss Hannigan, a mean-spirited manager of the orphanage, as she awaited the arrival of Jamie Foxx’s Daddy Warbucks (Jay Pharoah) who was planning to adopt Annie.

But Warbucks wasn't interested in meeting "white Annie" (Vanessa Bayer). He wanted to meet "black Annie," instead.  

"Black Annie" (Leslie Jones), an overgrown 43-year-old orphan, came in, saying: “I’m an orphan, I’m a veteran, I did a half a season in the WNBA."

Warbucks ended up changing his mind about the adoption, worried "black Annie" will take all of his money.

"Well, I’m not sure you’re the little orphan girl I’m looking for, Annie, but I am in need of a security guard," he said.

Black Annie agreed with a few requirements.

“Only thing is, I need my money up front, and I’m only working three days, and I have three kids that you’re probably going to have to adopt too,” she said.

The cold open scene channeled a "School House Rock!" segment that took a stab at President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration.

Kenan Thompson's character, portraying a "Bill," broke into song to explain the lengthy process of a bill becoming a law to a student visiting the Capitol Hill. But while he was singing, Obama (Jay Pharoah) entered the scene and pushed the human-sized bill down the steps.

Obama explained to the student that "there's an easier way to get things done around here." That's when Bobby Moynihan walked in, dressed as an "Executive Order."

"Im an executive order and I pretty much just happen," said Moynihan's character while smoking a cigarette. "And that's it."

When Obama explained that his executive order was providing relief from deportation to five million undocumented immigrants, Moynihan's character was surprised, saying he should have read the document himself.

"Okay, go big or go home, huh?" Moynihan said.

"Weekend Update" also covered Obama's executive action.

"For more on this immigration story, bring it up to your grandfather at Thanksgiving," quipped co-anchor Colin Jost.

Co-anchor Michael Che talked about how Missouri Governor Jay Nixon deployed the National Guard ahead of the grand jury decision on whether to indict white police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

"So spoiler alert, I guess we know what the verdict is," Che said. "Deploying the National Guard before the verdict is like your lawyer telling you to show up in something orange."

In a recurring sketch "Office Boss," Beck Bennet and his wife, Cameron Diaz invited co-workers over for dinner.

Bennet's character, a business executive trapped in the body of a baby, stumbled to the table and Diaz fed him while he sat in a high chair. The two even announced that they were having a baby of their own.

Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson performed "Uptown Funk" and "Feel Right" featuring Mystikal.

"SNL" will return on Dec. 6 with James Franco as host and musical guest Nicki Minaj.
