5 Golden Globes moments after you turned off the TV

Lena Dunham's love, Julianne Hough's wardrobe malfunction and more

January 14, 2013|By Dana Moran, @redeyedana | RedEye

Did everyone enjoy getting down with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes on Sunday night? The delightful duo is now rivaled only by Neil Patrick Harris and Mike O'Malley and Mo on "Guts"--and Billy Crystal, for sentimentality's sake--in our Favorite Hosts of Anything Ever competition. And even after the cameras stopped rolling, the party kept going. Here's a roundup of the night and morning after the trophies were handed out.

Lena <3 Chad
So what the heck was going on with Lena Dunham and Chad Lowe, anyway? Turns out the "Girls" creator/star had made a Twitter promise to Lowe over the summer that "I will probably mention you if I ever receive any award at all in my lifetime." How come? Lena was trying to make up for Chad's then-wife, Hilary Swank, who forgot to thank him during her 2000 Academy Awards acceptance speech. "Dearest @lenadunham YOU COMPLETE ME," he replied on Twitter. We approve of these potential new besties.

Quentin Tarantino's loose lips
"Django Unchained" features more than a hundred instances of the N-word, so director Quentin Tarantino's probably pretty used to hearing it by now. That doesn't mean members of the press are, though. They reportedly were pretty shocked when he employed the word while answering a reporter's question about its use in "Django." Just remember, guys: Being surprised by Quentin can come with the territory.

Pal power
You really, really (really, really, really) like them! The combined comedic powers of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler drew in 19.7 million viewers to Sunday's Globes telecast—the most since 2007. Snarkmaster Ricky Gervais brought 16.8 million and 17 million in 2011 and 2010, respectively. Maybe Tina was right about his time in showbiz being over. ... Nah.

Wardrobe whoops
Because one giant, poofy gown isn't enough for one night, lots of stars change into ANOTHER fancy frock for dancing the night away at after-parties. But for poor little Julianne Hough, even that wasn't enough wardrobe changes. The "Dancing With the Stars" star/Seacrest girlfriend posted "Ummm I think I may have danced too hard.... Eeek!!!!" on an Instagram shot of her torn-up pink gown. Glad some of us have an unlimited budget for such things.

Partaaaaaay
The entertainment mags trolled the after-parties for delicious celeb tidbits after the show ended, and came out with some great moments. Among them: "Homeland's" Damian Lewis and Chris Brody dancing to "Gangnam Style," Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway sword fighting with their Globes, Selena Gomez dancing sans Bieb and Ben Affleck being mobbed by hordes of people. We are surprised by none of these things.
