Anna Kendrick was pitch perfect hosting 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend.

The "Pitch Perfect" star famous for her song, "Cups," went musical for the opening monologue, channeling Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Little Mermaid" for laughs from the audience.

"I got my start in musical theater. When I was 10, my dad took me to see 'Beauty and the Beast' on Broadway and I just knew I wanted to be up there, so to be here on this New York stage is so incredibly exciting," she said.

Chicken Nuggets Recalled

Tyson Foods, Inc., is recalling 5-pound bags of frozen white meat chicken nuggets after plastic pieces were found inside of them, according to ABC News affiliate KRTK.

Mormon Women Denied Entry to Priesthood

Hundreds of Mormon women descended on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, over the weekend to demand entry into the Mormon priesthood, according to the Wall Street Journal.

But the women were turned away from the church's general conference, a move that signifies the church's unwillingness to let female members into the priesthood.

"Despite polite and respectful requests from church leaders not to make Temple Square a place of protest, a mixed group of men and women ignored that request and staged a demonstration outside the Tabernacle on General Conference weekend, refusing to accept ushers' directions and refusing to leave when asked," church spokesman Cody Craynor told the Salt Lake City Tribune.
