HITS
· Mo’Nique is precious — and we mean that in the best way.

NEAR MISSES
· Drew Barrymore, congratulations on your Golden Globe, but why is there a hedgehog on your shoulder?
· Jon Lovitz appears on The Bachelor and resuscitates his career. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
· After Paranormal Activity murders Saw VI at the box office, the Paranormal Activity sequel signs up the director of… Saw VI. Now that’s a plot twist we didn’t see coming.
