Thursday's Oscar nominations consisted almost exclusively of familiar faces from the film world. Before several of these actors broke out on the big screen, though, they found their way into the spotlight on television.
Among these class acts is a comic actress–turned–serious dramatist who's actually a reality veteran, a sharp-tongued supporting actor whose first recurring gig was on an NSFW HBO series and a threepeat nominee who learned his craft from asking other Oscar go-to guys for their advice – over and over again.
Check out these Academy Award nominees:

Andy Samberg sat down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Wednesday night, and the two former Saturday Night Live pals got right back up to their old tricks, splitting sides with a routine called "Five-Second Summaries," where they have – you guessed it – five seconds to summarize the plot of a movie to the point where the other can guess it.
And if you think some Wheel of Fortune guesses are impressive, wait until you see Fallon guess Honey, I Shrunk the Kids from Samberg's summary: "I'm in the Cheerios."

Saturday Night Live generally keeps its departed cast members close, unless you've done something to really offend the show. So having Golden Globe winner and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg on to host the last episode of the show's season wasn't a stretch, though the parade of alumni the show brought out at different points felt appropriately momentous for a season-closer.

Andy Samberg should've guessed what he was getting into by inviting David Copperfield to his bachelor party last year.
Copperfield's present to Samberg came up when Samberg visited Late Night with Seth Meyers Monday. Last year, Samberg married his longtime girlfriend, musician Joanna Newsom, and Meyers attended his bachelor party. So did the magician, who brought Samberg a large present, which he made "levitate" in photos.

How does Andy Samberg feel about his gorgeous bride? Just remember the wise words of Beyoncé.
"I liked it and I put a ring on it," Samberg told PEOPLE at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
Samberg, 35, won best actor for his role in cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
But his real prize was a paparazzi-free vacation with wife Joanna Newsom, a singer-songwriter. The admittedly "disoriented" comedian and Newsom – who wed in September – came fresh to the Globes from their honeymoon.
"We just got back last night," Newsom says. "It was incredible. It was amazing."

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned Sunday night to host the Golden Globes awards on NBC, and they stuck pretty much to last year's routine. Their introductory remarks worked through the movie and television categories with funny, precise jokes that were sometimes lightly pointed commentary, sometimes just stupid fun.

There were a lot of uncomfortable moments at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, from Jacqueline Bisset's rambling acceptance speech to Diane Keaton's impromptu serenade for Woody Allen, recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
But amid the nervous looks and awkward laughter, there was a specific set of stars who couldn't have had a better night: the former faces of Saturday Night Live.
In addition to hosting, Amy Poehler took home a best comedic TV actress Golden Globe for her role on Parks & Recreation, an honor she celebrated by making out with Bono. "Wow, I was not prepared for this!" she said onstage. "I've never won anything like this."
