Given that Jim Carrey's roots lie in sketch comedy and stand-up, we expected big things out of his appearance on Saturday Night Live on Oct. 25.

And we weren't disappointed: Anyone who tuned in was treated to a wide range of skits; some tailored to Carrey's past, others that hit a broader audience. Let's dig in.

Jeff Daniels on Working with Jim Carrey, Returning to Dumb and Dumber

Originally posted 09/02/2014 06:30AM

Things you can count on in life: cat videos, Pamela Anderson's confusing romantic choices and Harry and Lloyd being really, really dumb.

The pea-brained characters, played by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, are back in the sequel to 1994's Dumb and Dumber – and they're still "oblivious to the world around them," Daniels tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "We haven't gained one ounce of intelligence in 20 years."

For Daniels, 59, shooting Dumb and Dumber To, out Nov. 14, meant the opportunity to reteam with "comic tornado" Carrey, 52.

Harry and Lloyd are back, and it's about as messy as you'd expect.

Dumb and Dumber To (yes, that "to/two" misspelling is intentional), the long-awaited sequel to 1994's seminal gross-out masterpiece from Bobby and Peter Farrelly, hits theaters Nov. 14, but fans can whet their appetite for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels's idiotic duo with this trailer, which premiered Tuesday on The Tonight Show.

Say cheese-y.

After 19 long years, they're back – and looking dumber than ever: Lloyd and Harry, the characters, uh, immortalized by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the original Dumb and Dumber movie.

And guess what? They clearly haven't gotten any brighter.

"How Roland Rolls comes out TODAY but it may be a little too sophisticated for Lloyd and Harry! Yep ... THEY'RE BAAAAA ...," Carrey, 51, wrote on both Twitter and WhoSay Tuesday.

Jeff Daniels: 'Oh, That's What It Sounds Like When You Win!'

Originally posted 09/23/2013 08:30PM

How surprised was Jeff Daniels to win his first Emmy?

"I heard my name, and I go, 'Oh, that's what it sounds like when you win,' " Daniels, who won for his lead role as the self-righteous anchor Will McAvoy on The Newsroom, told reporters at HBO's afterparty on the Plaza of the Pacific Design Center, Sunday. "You hear your name just like that. 'Well, I won!' "

Going into the ceremony, the favorite appeared to be Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who had won for the past three years. When Daniels's name was announced instead, reported The New York Times, "There were audible gasps of 'Whoa!' and 'What?' in the auditorium."

PEOPLE's TV Critic: What the Emmys Got Right and Wrong

Originally posted 09/23/2013 03:00PM

Late into the 65th annual Emmys ceremony Sunday on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris announced: "No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool."

If you did happen to win, you should consider a career in statistical forecasting. The awards were all over the place.

Of the night's many surprises, the biggest was in the category of best actor. Academy voters for once decided not to give the prize to Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston – but instead of rewarding Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the perennial also-ran, they chose Jeff Daniels of HBO's The Newsroom. Perhaps they concluded that Hamm is already lousy with nominations, and handsome as the devil, and that should hold him. Daniels is a fine actor, as you'll discover if you catch just about any of his many performances of the past three decades, but The Newsroom's first season was a pounding surf of angry, righteous yammering. Oh well.

Here's what else the Emmys got right and wrong:

You've seen her in Superbad, The House Bunny and Zombieland, but now, Emma Stone is taking on a more complicated leading role in the dark comedy-drama, Paper Man.

Stone, 21, plays a teenager who forms an unlikely friendship with a struggling, 40-something writer played by Jeff Daniels. "I've never done a movie like that, and I probably never will again," says the actress. And when it comes to her fellow costar Ryan Reynolds – who plays Daniels's superhero imaginary friend, Captain Excellent – she tells PEOPLE he's "awesome."

Christoph Waltz, Up Early Oscar Winners

Originally posted 03/07/2010 09:00PM

Music and laugher kicked off the 2010 Academy Awards from Hollywood's Kodak Theatre. In a non-traditional first, the show actually opened with the 10 Best Actor and Actress nominees introduced alphabetically before escorts rose from the audience and guided them to their seats.

Then the fun began.

Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted the Tonys and Emmys last year, delivered the show's opening musical number, "No One Wants to Do It Alone," essentially setting the stage for hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin – who spent their opening dialogue poking fun at the top nominees who had just been seated.

"There's that damn Helen Mirren," said Martin – prompting Baldwin to say, "Steve, that's Dame Helen Mirren."
