8. Tom Brady, 2005
SNL pulled off a rare feat in 2005 – they actually succeeded in making Tom Brady likable (don't kill me, Patriots Nation). Hitting the stage shortly after the Patriots won Super Bowl XXXIX, the toothsome QB awkwardly – yet charmingly – feels his away around sketches that lampoon everything from athletes bombing on SNL (in a monologue where Brady insists he can sing even though he can't hold a tune) and other sports figures (including Kenan Thompson playing Donovan McNabb's mother). The entire effort amounted into a cacophony of silly, just as SNL should be.
