In 2020, The New York Times ranked her #22 in its list of the 25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century.

McCarthy began appearing in television and film in the late 1990s and first gained recognition for her role as Sookie St. James on the television series Gilmore Girls. She played Dena on the ABC sitcom Samantha Who? before starring as Molly Flynn on the CBS sitcom Mike & Molly, for which she received the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2011. McCarthy's appearances as a host on Saturday Night Live led to a win for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series in 2017. She is set to appear in the fourth season of Only Murders in the Building alongside stars Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.

McCarthy gained critical acclaim for her performance in the comedy film Bridesmaids, receiving a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
