Melissa McCarthy is having a very, very good month.
Before Ghostbusters took home a whopping $46 million at the box office over its opening weekend, the 45-year-old actress was honored with the 2016 Gilda Radner Award For Innovation in Comedy during Gildafest '16.
Her reboot co-star, Kristen Wiig, lent a supportive hand at the event, which was held by SVEDKA Vodka at Caroline's on Broadway in New York City on July 12.
The Spy star looked gorgeous in a long-sleeved LBD that featured a lace top with nude overlay and pleated skirt, which she paired with matching pointy wrap-up pumps and dark beige nails, while Wiig rocked a buttoned-up floral-print Tory Burch blouse and matching pants.
The award McCarthy received is named for Gilda Radner, a beloved original cast member of Saturday Night Live who died of ovarian cancer in 1989, and is "presented to a female comedian who embodies the fun and comedic genius" of the late actress. All proceeds from the evening went to Gilda's Club New York City, a non-profit founded in Radner's memory to support, educate, and empower cancer patients and their families.
McCarthy and Wiig weren't the only Ghostbusters partying in the Big Apple. An energetic Leslie Jones sipped on a Strawberry Cobbler cocktail with friends at STK Rooftop on July 16.

Martha Stewart was among those mingling at the Kim Crawford-sponsored after-party for Bad Moms at Metrograph in New York City on July 18, where the movie's co-stars Mila Kunis and Kathryn Hahn were also spotted looking adorably cozy on a couch during the soiree.

Tag this in the too cute category: Kristin Cavallari's 3-year-old son, Camden, watched his mom apply BareMinerals Complexion Rescue at their Los Angeles home on July 15. "Yay! A quick fix that can stand up against morning chaos and multitask as well as we do," the mom of three wrote on Instagram. "I'm so excited to partner with @bareminerals.
