Melissa McCarthy snuck 30 ham and cheese sandwiches into the Golden Globes this year making her the Ultimate Golden Globe Winner Supreme.

Unlike the Oscars and similar awards shows who don’t feed Hollywood’s hottest, the Globes does provide dinner before the the ceremony commences. However, the teeny-tiny celebs sit there for over three hours- more than enough time for a snack craving to set in.

McCarthy joyfully told Variety about her Golden Globes DIY picnic plan. “I’ve been handing them out to everyone,” McCarthy said of her sandwiches. “Next year, I’m bringing hot dogs.”

The tasty ham and cheese treats came from Joan’s on Third, a fancy (and pricier) specialty food shop on Third Street in Los Angeles.

The actress was nominated for best actress in a drama motion picture for her work in Can You Ever Forgive Me?.
