, who won the Golden Globe this year in the Best Actress in a Series, Miniseries, or Motion Picture Made for Television for her role in HBO's Temple Grandin, expressed a bit of the child in her with her dress pick tonight. "It was the 6-year-old in me," she said of why she chose a hot pink Calvin Klein collection gown. "Sometimes a girl just wants to wear pink." This is Danes' second Globe award since winning at 15 for My So Called Life.

Glee's Amber Riley (in Oliver Tolentino) and Jenna Ushkowitz (in Rebecca Taylor) had a fashion feud backstage after their show's win for Best Series. Jokingly, of course. "We can't get too close," Riley said. "We aren't feuding of anything, it's just that I'm wearing sequins and she's wearing that netting. If we got too close it could get nasty."

stars Naya Rivera (in Douglas Hannant) and Dianna Agron celebrated their show's Best Series award, though Agron was unprepared to hear the show's name called as the winner. "My dress was getting tangled in my shoes and I was thinking, 'It's ok, we're not going to win,'" Agron said of her beige silk chiffon J. Mendel gown. "I was about to take my shoes off! But to win again was amazing."

Paul Giamatti

, Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical winner for his role in Barney's Version, could've used a seat at The Social Network table. "Honestly, I don't even know what Facebook looks like or how any of that works," he said when we asked him what his Facebook status would be after his winning moment. Alas, when he found out that he could alert all his friends about his up-to-the-minute thoughts, he took a gander: "I won. I'm going to In 'N Out."

"I just remember everything went silent," Melissa Leo (in Marc Bouwer) said, remembering the exact moment her name was called as Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Fighter. "Though I'm really proud of the work I did, having heard the names of the other women nominated I really didn't think they were going to call my name. So I was just sitting there and then I thought, 'Oh, this is a television show and I should probably stand up and get moving!'"

How was it possible to make Jim Parsons' winning moment for Best Actor in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical even better? Have one of his co-stars hand him the award! "Winning and then walking towards the stage knowing that (his Big Bang Theory co-star) Kaley Cuoco was up there waiting to present the award to me... I just told her that for the rest of my career I'll never have another moment like that," Parsons said. "It means so much that the whole cast is here to share this."

As Katey Sagal (in Douglas Hannant) took the stage to accept her Best Actress in a Drama award for her role in Sons of Anarchy, she found herself unexpectedly saying hi to some of the people in the room. "As I was walking to the stage I saw Johnny Depp," she told us. "We were both on the Fox network about 20 years ago. As I walked by, I said 'Hi Johnny!' and gave him a little wave. He probably has no idea who I am."
