"Hollywood Minute" was a semi-regular sketch on Saturday Night Live in which David Spade lampooned celebrities.

The segment consisted of a series of sarcastic one-liners making fun of celebrities, whose pictures were usually shown in one of the upper corners of the screen.

Originally a section of "Weekend Update" Spade received a regular segment, Spade in America. Spade used a hand-puppet of himself to reprise this role when he returned to Saturday Night Live as a guest host, stating that he didn't feel like putting down celebrities anymore, but that didn't mean that a puppet couldn't.

In one notable instance, a picture of former Saturday Night Live cast member Eddie Murphy appeared onscreen and Spade exclaimed, "Look children, a falling star... quick, make a wish!" referring to Murphy's lack of box office success at the time. This apparently caused significant animosity between SNL and Murphy, and Spade and Murphy in particular. In another segment, he began to make fun of Steve Martin, but then Martin appeared behind and began squeezing his shoulder. Upon turning around and seeing Martin was there, Spade got up and ran off. Martin then sat in Spade's chair and proceeded to make fun of Spade.

In 2005, Spade took this format to Comedy Central and made it the featured segment on his weekly program entitled The Showbiz Show with David Spade.
