Kristen Wiig, Annie Mumolo Play Wrestle Over 'Bridesmaids' Comedy Award (Video)

Bridesmaids is a film about jealous best friends; maybe it was based on a true story.

Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, the gal-pals and writing partners who wrote the script to the 2011 smash hit, won the prize for Best Movie at last weekend's Comedy Awards in New York City. Unfortunately, there was only one trophy.

After being handed the old-time microphone statuette by Joel McHale and Chevy Chase, Wiig and Mumolo took turns giving their thank you speeches, and more importantly, cradling the prize. Sharing, clearly, isn't their expertise.

Whether it was pre-planned or a fun spur-of-the-moment gimmick reminiscent of their days doing improv together, the pair tussled over their trophy, back and forth, until things got pretty serious -- and seriously funny. If they ever get around to that Bridesmaids sequel, they may already have a good first scene planned.

The Comedy Awards air on Comedy Central on May 6 at 9 p.m. EST.
