J.K. Simmons Brings Out His Oscar-Nominated Character for 'SNL'

The actor has already won a Golden Globe, Critics' Choice Movie Award and a SAG award for playing the supporting role of the mean, band conductor, Fletcher, who yells at his students as a form of getting his students to reach their potential. So when he came on Saturday Night Live to host, he had to address his character's flaws before he really got into the role once more.
