Melissa McCarthy hosted Saturday Night Live this week, and despite an opening monologue that saw her having a wire-assisted fight with Bobby Moynihan, the show was really about one event: Seth Meyers' last appearance at the 'Weekend Update' desk.

There were a lot of uncomfortable moments at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, from Jacqueline Bisset's rambling acceptance speech to Diane Keaton's impromptu serenade for Woody Allen, recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
But amid the nervous looks and awkward laughter, there was a specific set of stars who couldn't have had a better night: the former faces of Saturday Night Live.
In addition to hosting, Amy Poehler took home a best comedic TV actress Golden Globe for her role on Parks & Recreation, an honor she celebrated by making out with Bono. "Wow, I was not prepared for this!" she said onstage. "I've never won anything like this."

Usually actresses cause controversy by not covering up. But Melissa McCarthy has managed to set tongues wagging because she's showing a lack on skin on the November cover of ELLE magazine.
The Mike and Molly star got all glammed up for the shoot, but while some of the actresses who posed for the Women in Hollywood issue showed lots of skin, the 43-year-old was covered up in a loose-fitting Marina Rinaldi coat.
"Hopefully it's not a message that full-figured women are not meant to be seen," plus-size supermodel and activist Emme told CNN. "I'm not going to take it like that. I'm just happy that Melissa's on the cover and she looks fantastic. I just would have liked to have seen a little bit more of her."

The Melissa McCarthy who showed up to the Boston set of The Heat last summer with her two young daughters in tow could have passed for a friendly out-of-towner. Polite. Unassuming, even.
"A sweet midwestern mom," as costar Michael McDonald puts it. But then the cameras starting rolling – and McCarthy morphed into a "beast," says castmate Bill Burr.
The same woman who "doesn't even swear in real life," notes Heat director Paul Feig, "gets into character and suddenly the F-words start pouring out."
