Melissa McCarthy still thinks Oscar nomination is joke

Wednesday February 8, 2012

Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy has joked she is still waiting to be told her Oscar nomination is a prank.

The 41-year-old actress earned a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her hilarious performance in the comedy film, but revealed she still can't believe it is happening to her.

Melissa said: "I keep pinching myself and I really hope I don't get the call where someone goes 'kidding!'."

However, the Gilmore Girls star and comedian doesn't take her newfound stardom for granted, confessing she still worries about having to go back to waitressing if she doesn't get cast in enough roles.

Melissa revealed: "I still have that mentality of 'Let me have a job!' And I think I'm going to have to go wait tables again."

She needn't worry for now, as she has several roles in the pipeline and will appear in comedy This Is 40 later this year.
