2012 Comedy Award – Best Comedy Screenplay for Bridesmaids
Kristen Wiig: Thank you! Thank you very much. We have to thank Judd Apatow. (Audience applauds) Yes, of course! The movie wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for him. Thanks to Universal for all your support, and to Annie my best friend. Thank you. (Takes the award from Annie’s hands)
Annie Mumolo: Thank you to Kristen, who’s my best friend too. And also thank you to Paul Feig for your leadership, and our fearless cast. Thank you all so much for making the movie what it is. (Tries to grab the award from Kristen but ends up wrestling her instead)
Kristen Wiig: (After wrestling Annie for almost a minute) Seriously, thank you! Seriously, that’s how I ended that bit, by saying seriously. Seriously, for this award. It really, really, really means so much to us. Thank you.
Annie Mumolo: Yes, thank you for embracing the movie. We’re so grateful. Thank you.

2011 Comedy Award – Best TV Actress for Saturday Night Live
Thank you! Oh my gosh. A microphone! Thank you so much (speaking in the microphone-award). Oh, this works (speaking in the actual microphone). Thank you so much for this. I share this with my cast, I wouldn’t be up here if it wasn’t for them. I wanna thank Lorne… Lorne Jackson. He is my acting teacher and he’s taught me how to feel… again. I want to thank Lorne… Winetraub. She was my first agent and I hope she’s doing okay. And Lorne Michaels, obviously. I definitely wouldn’t be up here if it wasn’t for him. Thank you so much, this means a lot to me. Thank you.
