Alec Baldwin was in his element at the annual American Museum of Natural History’s gala Thursday evening. Lorne Michaels presided over the event, per usual, lending it the feeling of a fancy Saturday Night Live office party. (It helped that a proverbial clown car also carried cast members into the Hall of Ocean Life.) After making it through the step-and-repeat, Kate McKinnon and Baldwin gave each other a long hug, like two old friends who have seen some things. Perhaps, though, the hug had something to do with Baldwin’s return to S.N.L. after a week off. He’ll reprise his role as Donald Trump this Saturday, playing the mogul as president-elect for the very first time.
