Melissa McCarthy is best known for her comedy work but has recently starred in a string of duds such as The Happytime Murders and Life of the Party so it is a pleasure to see her being given the opportunity to do drama and show that she’s amazing at it, as her recent Oscar nomination proves.

I think it’s safe to say that the reaction when the female reboot of Ghostbusters was announced was mixed at best.
