Oscars 2012: Melissa McCarthy wants some champagne
McCarthy tells EW, "I didn't get up or anything. I just did not expect that. At all! Hopefully I'm not nuts." We're thrilled for her, and for her fellow "Bridesmaids" nominees as well. Co-star Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo were nominated for Best Original Screenplay. "Annie! Oh god, I have to talk to her!" McCarthy says. "Kristen and Annie sat down and wrote it and rewrote it and tweaked it and made those characters. The whole thing - that's from their two talented and weird brains. I'm so happy!"
So, what is the Oscar nominee going to do to celebrate? "I have to go to work in an hour," the "Mike & Molly" star says. "I have to shoot today. But that's not a bad thing -- I love my job. Then I have a show tomorrow. At some point today, I'm having champagne dammit!" As you should, Melissa! Cheers!
