“Saturday Night Live” is one of our greatest institutions, and within the famed show is another famed institution: The Five-Timers Club.

It’s a special club reserved for the celebrity guests who have hosted “Saturday Night Live” at least five times. It may not seem like that many celebs host the show that often, but over the years, the list has grown quite a bit.

The first time the Five-Timers club was mentioned on “Saturday Night Live” was when Tom Hanks hosted the show for his fifth time back in the ‘90s. The sketch featured Steve Martin, Elliot Gould and Paul Simon, who had all hosted the show more than five times at that point. Ever since, anytime a guest host makes it to five times, a fun little sketch is performed, with past members swinging by 30 Rock to present the guest host with the legendary FIve-Timers Club jacket.

Over the weekend, actress Emma Stone was the latest celebrity to enter the prestigious club. Five-Timers members Tina Fey and Candice Bergen were on hand during Stone’s monologue to bestow her the famous jacket. It was super cute, and you could tell how much it meant to Stone, who is now the youngest member of the club.
