Best Post-'SNL' Moments: "Working Girl," "Addams Family Values," "Toy Story 2"
Joan Cusack wasted no time rising to legendary comic status after her departure from "SNL": She blew our minds with that outrageous footage-transfer scene in "Broadcast News," racked up two Oscar nominations (for "Working Girl" and, eventually, "In and Out"), and costarred with her brother John in "Say Anything." This year she is yet again Emmy-nominated for her work on "Shameless." It's no wonder we've already forgotten about her most famous recurring "SNL" character, a socially inept lovestruck girl named Salena. God bless the '85-'86 season.
