McCarthy’s husband snapped a photo of the illegal sandwiches and at the end of the night, there were only two remaining.

“I’ve been handing them out to everyone,” McCarthy told Variety.

McCarthy joked that next year she would be bringing hot dogs for all.

The stars of the night were appreciative of the lengths that McCarthy went to smuggle her bounty in.

Even actress Olivia Colman credited McCarthy for the sandwich in her acceptance speech for “The Favorite.”

Actress Jessica Chastain wondered how she got them all in, telling Variety, “How did she get them in here? But it’s a good idea because, by the time you get into the ballroom, dinner has already been served, and you’re always so hungry.”

McCarthy appeared to have ordered the sandwiches from Los Angeles, California, restaurant Joan’s on Third, making sure that the meal was on par with the night.
