LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Fresh off her win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series last night at the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Melissa McCarthy told Access Hollywood it all felt like a dream.
“I feel like I’m going to wake up, and, you know, it’s going to be like 4:30 AM and my daughter’s going to be like, ‘Uh, can I have some milk?’” the “Mike & Molly” star told Access’ Shaun Robinson backstage at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.
“Yeah, this is not in any realm of, ‘Oh, this seems right.’” Melissa continued. “[But,] I’m not going to fight it.”
The actress will only have a few days to bask in the glow of her Emmy win, as she’s off to New York and back at work hosting NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” on October 1.
“I’m totally nervous, but… I cannot wait. I say bring it on!” she told Shaun. “I did 12-15 years at Groundlings, of like doing sketch comedy.”
As for working on a sequel to her runway big screen hit, “Bridesmaids,” she’ll be there if she gets a call.
“There’s been no official talk,” she told Shaun. “[But,} I would do anything with those women, or [director] Paul Feig, or Judd Apatow again.”
Adding, “Unless everyone except me is signed on. Is that what’s happening? You guys! Wah-wah, that’d be such a bummer.”
