"Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara's "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig included turns as Fran Drescher, a Santa Barbara news anchor, and a clueless reporter thrown right into the middle of "The Hunger Games."

She also made fun of her Colombian accent -- a lot -- especially in a skit that paired her with brand-new "SNL" featured player Kate McKinnon. It found Vergara and Penelope Cruz (McKinnon) shooting a Pantene commercial that required Cruz to deliver some incredibly difficult lines.

McKinnon demonstrated a way with accents, also playing Australian Bravo star Tabatha Coffey in another skit. Her Cruz was especially good, given that they don't look much alike.

Editor's note: An earlier verison of this story included incorrectly spelled the word "Colombian."
