Such was the scene at the American Museum of Natural history's 2010 gala fund-raiser Thursday night in New York, where a crowd heavy with "Saturday Night Live" cast members, veterans and hosts hung out in the company of dinosaur bones and ocean critters.
Spotted: Tina Fey, Steve Martin, Jimmy Fallon New York Gov. David Paterson, tennis champ John McEnroe with singer-wife Patty Smyth, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Abby Elliott, Jack McBrayer, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Jane Krakowski and Kristen Wiig.

Why so many "SNL" faces? Lorne Michaels and his wife were among those who chaired the gala, and "Love & Other Drugs" star Hathaway will host the show on Saturday. Get a taste of that below.
