Melissa McCarthy may be basking in the glory after winning her second Emmy award, this time for her portrayal of Sean Spicer…
Netflix and HBO may have had the most nominations; Veep, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Big Little Lies may have won the most major awards; but the person most on the minds and tongues of those with microphones at Sunday night’s Emmys Awards was President Trump. And before you dive down to the comments section to tell me that’s why you didn’t watch the show hosted by Stephen Colbert and that Hollywood is full of libtards, let me say I understand your reaction completely. ...
Having previously asked that Melissa McCarthy “dial back” her impersonation on Saturday Night Live, Sean Spicer half-heartedly acknowledged its merits on Wednesday.
Melissa McCarthy's several appearances as Sean Spicer helped 'Saturday Night Live' have one of its best season in two decades.
You’d think Saturday Night Live, with its obsession for having Alec Baldwin play President Donald Trump, would have figured it out by now: Whatever criticism is leveled at Trump in a prominent cultural setting, he’ll respond with the obstinacy of a mule. SNL decided to satirize the supposed conflict in the White House between Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as to which adviser has the ear of — and a future with — the president. The show opened with Trump-Baldwin presiding over a Bachelor-style* competition between Steve Bannon (portrayed as usual in a Grim Reaper costume that in Bannon’s worldview is a compliment, not an insult) and Jared Kushner (host Jimmy Fallon).
It’s snowing on the East Coast, and celebrities are really excited. On Thursday, stars took to Instagram to share pictures of the February snow day, compliments of a storm named Niko. While some photos featured the famous faces enjoying the scenery, others simply marveled at Mother Nature.

Melissa McCarthy's perfect impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the latest "Saturday Night Live" had us thinking back to other great surprise cameos on the show.
One reason the Saturday Night Live opening sketches with Alec Baldwin playing Donald Trump remain so unfunny is that our new president does so many appalling things in the course of a week that the SNL writing staff doesn’t have time to add coherent punch lines to the real-life events. Trump’s no bumbler: As the dialogue uttered by Baldwin this past week reminded us, the president really doesn’t know who Frederick Douglass is, and truly is interested in the ratings for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Celebrity Apprentice.
Joel McHale brought the entertainment community together as he hosted the People’s Choice Awards Wednesday night. As is tradition with awards show hosts, Joel made some pretty controversial political jokes, like “2016 was a very interesting year.

Melissa McCarthy had a very good weekend. Her new comedy The Boss toppled the superhero clash Batman v Superman at the box office, and she also became the first woman to win the Comedic Genius Award at the MTV Movie Awards, which aired Sunday night.
You don’t even have to sit through The Boss to hypothesize about who Melissa McCarthy’s larger-than-life Mama Warbucks, Michelle Darnell, might be based on. “I actually started Michelle Darnell about 15 years ago, I played her at the Groundlings,” McCarthy explained (watch above) at the film’s recent Los Angeles press day, shouting out the legendary Los Angeles improv collective that also counts Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Jack Black, Paul Reubens, Maya Rudolph, and McCarthy’s husband/Boss co-writer-director Ben Falcone as alumni.
