The sketch kicked off the cold open to "SNL" on Saturday, with Fey and Darrell Hammond skewering the former Alaska governor's endorsement speech in Iowa on Tuesday. As Palin, Fey said she had come to Iowa to break from "my full-time career of writing things on Facebook."

"SNL" also parodied this year's all-white Oscar nominees in a mock award show that nominated white actors playing bit roles in African-American dramas.

Satirizing that Sylvester Stallone was the only actor nominated for the boxing drama "Creed," the sketch gave an award to "all the white guys" despite bit roles like "White Man With Camera" and "Unseen Voice On Phone."
