The Real Golden Globe Winner: Melissa McCarthy's Sandwiches

Realizing they couldn't compete with the Academy's upcoming craziness of having an empty microphone stand host its award show, the 2019 Golden Globes were a pretty low-key affair. Your dad's favorite band won a bunch, they got that fun couple from your monthly board game night to host, and the biggest upset of the night was that Tony Shalhoub apparently has a beard now. Wow.

While the Golden Globes feature a lavish dinner, it is then followed by infinity hours of sitting around watching people fondling big golden balls. During that time, the stars are left to fend off hunger by scavenging swept-up crumbs in the trains of actresses' gowns and stealing hard candy out of Clint Eastwood's pockets.

Remember the time that one co-worker had a birthday fall on the long weekend, and she knew she had to step up her game so she went to the good sandwich place that's two blocks further to buy everyone lunch? Yeah, it was that big of a deal.

Those sammies were so good that Best Actress winner Olivia Colman thanked them during her acceptance speech, meaning they've been thanked more than any screenwriter ever. And as they were so well-received, McCarthy has already decided that being the Globes snack mom will be her new job. "Next year, I'm bringing hot dogs," she said. So that'll guarantee at least a dozen TMZ articles about Golden Globe winners ending the night with a bunch of wieners in their mouths.
