Melissa McCarthy invited Blake Lively and her husband to SNL and it was great.

Melissa McCarthy's "Saturday Night Live" opening monologue  — a tribute to moms on the eve of Mother's Day — was adorable, as she led a smiley, unassuming mom from the audience, a woman named Joan, on a backstage (and hilarious) tour of the SNL studios.

But it was one line during the segment that especially caught the internet's attention.


Actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who wed in 2012, were backstage during McCarthy's opening as part of the sketch.

"I may have been drunk when I invited them," McCarthy told Joan as they passed by the couple. "Don't worry, the Livelys are fine. They can handle it."

Did you catch the bit that had people on Twitter cheering? It was the blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment when McCarthy nonchalantly referred to the couple as "the Livelys" (as opposed to "the Reynolds").

People ... loved it.

Like, really loved it.

It took the opening monologue from pretty darn cute to absolutely delightful in seconds.

It was an easy-to-miss moment, but one that clearly struck a chord. Maybe it's time we rethink the outdated expectation that a woman should take her husband's name after marriage?

It seems like the world could use a few more Livelys.

True

If the past year has taught us nothing else, it's that sending love out into the world through selfless acts of kindness can have a positive ripple effect on people and communities. People all over the United States seemed to have gotten the message — 71% of those surveyed by the World Giving Index helped a stranger in need in 2020. A nonprofit survey found 90% helped others by running errands, calling, texting and sending care packages. Many people needed a boost last year in one way or another and obliging good neighbors heeded the call over and over again — and continue to make a positive impact through their actions in this new year.

Upworthy and P&G Good Everyday wanted to help keep kindness going strong, so they partnered up to create the Lead with Love Fund. The fund awards do-gooders in communities around the country with grants to help them continue on with their unique missions. Hundreds of nominations came pouring in and five winners were selected based on three criteria: the impact of action, uniqueness, and "Upworthy-ness" of their story.

Here's a look at the five winners:

Edith Ornelas, co-creator of Mariposas Collective in Memphis, Tenn.

Edith Ornelas has a deep-rooted connection to the asylum-seeking immigrant families she brings food and supplies to families in Memphis, Tenn. She was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when she was 7 years old with her parents and sister. Edith grew up in Chicago, then moved to Memphis in 2016, where she quickly realized how few community programs existed for immigrants. Two years later, she helped create Mariposas Collective, which initially aimed to help families who had just been released from detention centers and were seeking asylum. The collective started out small but has since grown to approximately 400 volunteers.
