“Hello you lovely people,” the 46-year-old said while accepting the award. “I’m a fan of people. I am a people. I was born of people. For this, I want to thank you. I am lucky enough that I get to go to work and do something that I love every day and that is 99.9% because of you. And work with people that I love. And this year I get to work with my real-life husband Ben and my work husband Paul Feig.”
Melissa also joked that she’s fought with a few of her fellow nominees. “Kristen Wiig and I were together when we found out that we were both nominated, and we just lit into each other. I mean just right off the bat. And what you may not know about Kristen is her wing span is incredible. She is like a beautiful, strong, aggressive orangutan with that reach,” the comedienne said before adding that Kristen Bell and Rebel Wilson “slashed my tires.”
When asked about her weight loss transformation, the mother-of-two told Life & Style that she was able to shed pounds after she quit dwelling over her size. "I truly stopped worrying about it," the Oscar nominee shared. "I think there's something to kinda loosening up and not being so nervous and rigid about it that, bizarrely, has worked."
She later told People magazine, "I feel sexiest when I feel comfortable, when I feel most myself, when I’m not trying to be anything other than who I am.”
