Melissa McCarthy: 'I’m half nuts right now!'

Melissa McCarthy continued her Tinseltown awards tour Wednesday as she celebrated a Screen Actors Guild nomination in the outstanding supporting actress category for her work in “Bridesmaids."

“I've been doing this [for] 20 years,” McCarthy tells CNN Entertainment. “I’m programmed to think, 'I’m never working again, oh my God I hope I get a job!'"

She adds, "I’ve spent two decades of my life just doing that, trying to just get a job. And then, to have this kind of response, and to have it be for something that you’re crazy about, and I got to do it with a bunch of my friends and my husband…then you go into, like, bizarre-land!”

The entire cast of “Bridesmaids” was also nominated for a SAG award in the movie ensemble category. McCarthy already snagged an Emmy this year for her work on the CBS show "Mike & Molly."

She says along with her cast that she’s excited to share this experience with her good friend Octavia Spencer, who was also nominated in the best supporting actress category for her work as Minny Jackson in “The Help."

    She's only 1/2 nuts because she ate the other 1/2.

    She may be 1/2 nuts right now but normally, she's 100% fat.

    Thrilled for her. Also, that's the best picture I've seen of her. She looks fantastic in pastels.

      "She looks fantastic in pastels."

      That's because she looks like a humpback whale in anything else.
