This past weekend saw 'Wolf of Wall Street' Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill bringing his A-game (and A-listers!) to 'SNL' for his third hosting gig, but can Melissa McCarthy's own third time hosting bring the heat, especially in the shadow of Super Bowl, er, "Live Ball War: The Game" Sunday? Find out in the first promos for our February 1 'SNL' installments with McCarthy and Imagine Dragons!

The 2014 Golden Globes were a night to remember, not because of the actual awards -- although, it was nice to see films like '12 Years a Slave,' 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'American Hustle' walk away with some of the biggie titles -- but because of host Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and, of course, all the drunken shenanigans one expects from this particular awards show. The night was packed with big-name celebrities who mostly followed the advice P. Diddy gave when he presented an award, "Keep drinking! It's almost over." So, in case you were watching the premiere of HBO miniseries 'True Detective' or the season 3 premiere of 'Girls,' here's all the best moments from the 2014 Golden Globes that worth watching.

We like to imagine that most folk would be busy with preparations for the big game even late into Saturday night, but 'SNL' will have an MVP of its own come Super Bowl weekend. 'The Heat' star Melissa McCarthy will make her third hosting turn on the 'SNL' stage come February 1, but who will join as musical guest?

2013 was the year of Melissa McCarthy's buddy movies, as both her 'Identity Thief' and 'The Heat' made well over a hundred million dollars at the box office. So far she's teamed up with Jason Bateman and Sandra Bullock, but for 'Susan Cooper' she may have someone tougher to play against: Jason Statham.

'The Heat' was one of this summer's surprise hits making over $200 million worldwide. Almost immediately a writer was hired to write 'The Heat 2' and a sequel was in motion, but Fox forgot one important thing: asking Sandra Bullock if she had interest in returning. The Oscar-winning actress flatly told The Wrap at the 'Gravity' premiere in Los Angeles, "I’m not doing a sequel to 'The Heat.'"

Melissa McCarthy was fantastic in this summer's female buddy cop comedy 'The Heat,' and it seems that she had as much fun working with director Paul Feig on that movie (and in 'Bridesmaids') as audiences did watching it -- so much fun that she's looking to reunite with Feig for his upcoming spy comedy 'Susan Cooper.'

Reel Women: What 'The Heat' Can Teach Us About Friendship and Feminism

There's this misunderstanding that feminism means blindly supporting your fellow woman for the sake of supporting women, but as Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy show us in 'The Heat,' that's not how feminism -- or friendship -- works at all.
Written by Katie Dippold and directed by Paul Feig ('Bridesmaids'), 'The Heat' follows overly-confident and alienating FBI agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) and foul-mouthed, obnoxious Boston cop Detective Mullins (McCarthy), who are unwittingly paired up to solve a string of drug-related murders. Using buddy cop theatrics usually reserved for the pairing of men, the film teaches us a lot about female friendship.

'The Heat' Review

“She's crazy!”
That's what 'Arrested Development' star Tony Hale shouts from the back of Melissa McCarthy's broken down jalopy of a police car as she goes through the motions of an uninteresting chase sequence.
"Hoo boy," I mutter. "We're in for another 'Identity Thief' here" - a movie where physical comedy and riff-heavy music cues will have to suffice instead of any real wit. But something happens about 10 minutes into 'The Heat,' the latest comedy from 'Bridesmaids' director Paul Feig. McCarthy's Detective Mullins loudly and brashly bursts into a room and meets Sandra Bullock's Special Agent Ashburn.
The chemical reaction is instantaneous. McCarthy and Bullock, both naturally funny people, feed off one another and crackle as one of the best comedy pairings since John Cleese and Michael Palin. 'The Heat' is a decent movie; McCarthy and Bullock are outstanding.

'Identity Thief' raked in big time at the box office due mostly to the comedic pairing of Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, and now the film is poised to hit shelves on DVD and Blu-ray this Tuesday, June 4. Well, guess what? We've got five, bridezilla-sized, Bateman-McCarthy-themed prize packs to shell out, including a copy of 'Identity Thief'!

We've been hearing a lot of news about sequels recently (including '21 Jump Street 2' and 'Fast and Furious 7'), but those have been for hit films or are continuing a franchise that has already proved successful enough to rush. Today it's been announced that studios are working on sequels for 'The Heat' and 'Ride Along,' two films that haven't even hit theaters yet.
