“Last night I remembered how awesome it is that my dad is Brian Williams.”

Last night I remembered how awesome it is that my dad is Brian Williams.So gushed Allison Williams (Y’ 10) on HuffPo yesterday, in a post titled, “Well, He Did It. And He Did It Extremely Well.” Why is NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams so awesome? Because he hosted SNL last week despite being an upstanding and responsible public figure.

For an indication of his awesomeness, check out the bitchin’ and totally unexpected commentary Williams wrote on The Sopranos last year for Slate. Or you could just take Allison’s word for it:

I’ve grown accustomed to his job out of necessity. It’s really only weird to see him on television in public places (billboards and gyms) when I’m completely anonymous and have a special connection with “that dude” that no one around me realizes.

Last night I remembered how awesome it is that my dad is Brian Williams. I could not be prouder to share genes, a last name, love for SNL, and many other things with him.

The show was a great success. His acting was nuanced, subtle, and wonderful, the lines were delivered naturally (not a surprise), his characters were colorful, he took enough risks and didn’t cross any lines, and lastly: HE’S FUNNY! Let the record show that Brian Williams is a man with a mind for journalism and comedy.

    My bad. Was looking at her too hard.

    And chill it, sure she’s a bit chubby, but boy do I love baby fat. Love that jiggle-wiggle. I’d want her to don ‘em butterfly wings, too.

    I guess it could be just part of the costume, but good God.

    Allison Williams–I saw your Ke$ha cover for Tik Tok. I'm guessing your dad doesn't sing like that. You have your own version of awesome! Thanks for taking a POS rapcrap song and turning it into something lovely.

    If the Protestants and Catholics (the Christians, in other words) are correct and there IS a Heaven and Hell, Allison's voice is the one we will here in Heaven. And, I ain't a religious guy!

    Check out YouTube  “Hallelujah Allison Williams”.  It’s a masterpiece. The absolute best version of the song on YouTube!

    This gal is talented….and beautiful!
