When she won Best Actress in a TV Drama at last night's Golden Globes, "Homeland" star Claire Danes said she was on the very same stage accepting a Globe when she was 15 years old. And she's right: Way back in ye olden times of 1995, Danes won the same award for her turn as angsty teen Angela Chase on the short-lived (but fondly-remembered) ABC drama "My So-Called Life." We managed to dig up her adorable acceptance speech from that year, her very first Golden Globe win, which you can watch right here (click to the 6:07 mark):
Now, as great as Danes was as Angela Chase, you might think it's kind of ridiculous that a 15-year-old won such a prestigious award... until you see who the other nominees were that year. Heather Locklear for "Melrose Place"? Angela Lansbury for Season 11 of "Murder, She Wrote"? "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman"??? Say what you want about the current state of TV, but based on these nominees, TV dramas have come a loooong way since the mid-'90s. So in hindsight, DanesRead More »from Watch Claire Danes’ first Golden Globe win from 1995

When asked last night about Jodie Foster receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2013 Golden Globes, Mel Gibson did not mince words:
"You know, I love her," Gibson replied. "I thought it was great. I adore her. I kiss the ground she walks on."
Gibson was seated next to Foster throughout the ceremony, surrounded by Hollywood royalty he used to be considered a part of until he was involved in a series of embarrassing public incidents. In 2006, Gibson was pulled over for drunk driving and went on an anti-Semitic tirade. In 2010, audiotapes were leaked of him raging against ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, which eventually led to the actor pleading no contest to a domestic battery charge. (Gibson was sentenced to three years of probation and avoided jail time.) In the past year, there was the release of another tape of a ranting Gibson and a controversy over a video related to his 2006 DUI.
Through all the controversy, Foster's loyalty to Gibson has never wavered.Read More »from Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson discuss their loyal friendship

Lopez introducing her ex Diddy to her new beau, Casper Smart. (Getty Images)Jennifer Lopez has taught us many a lesson: the joys of double-stick tape, what her love costs and, now, how to handle awkward moments like bumping into former lovers.
Sunday's Golden Globes telecast saw Lopez present best original song alongside actor Jason Statham, but run-ins with Ben Affleck and Diddy served as bookends for her glamorous night.Read More »from How Jennifer Lopez handled her exes at the Golden Globes
Kristen Wiig (Getty Images)Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were never going to fail as hosts for the 70th annual Golden Globe awards.
Both ladies, also nominees, are at the top of their game and didn’t miss a beat during Sunday’s broadcast. Their one potential mistake: asking Kristen Wiig to present.
Wiig, along with fellow “SNL” alum Will Ferrell, easily dominated the conversation both in the ballroom and throughout the evening at after parties thanks to their brilliant moment as presenters.
So could Kristin see herself taking over Amy and Tina’s duty one day?Read More »from Kristin Wiig: Would she host the Golden Globes?

Following Sunday’s Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted broadcast, the crowd at Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton dispersed from the grand ballroom and wreaked havoc in every corner of the famous venue. Given the show's mix of predictable winners and upsets, luminaries across the board scurried to their home networks or studio events – which guaranteed party-hopping as the night progressed.
Fey and Poehler headed up to NBC Universal’s fete to take what we can only imagine were excessive compliments, while the lobby of the Hilton was packed with A-listers making their rounds.Read More »from Golden Globes: Pattinson, Gomez and winners celebrate

Co-hostesses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler proved what we’ve been saying all along: it’s actually possible to have an entertaining awards show. They’ve raised the bar for the Academy Awards – and host Seth MacFarlane. Take note Oscars: it’s supposed to be entertaining, not a test of endurance! Here are a few lessons for the future:
Girl Power: There’s something about having two comediennes who can write their own material (sorry, Bruce Vilanch) that simply killed. I loved when they referred to President Bill Clinton as Mr. Hillary Clinton – or when the camera caught Poehler in George Clooney’s lap. When have we ever seen one of his actual girlfriends perched there?Read More »from Five things the Oscars could learn from the Golden Globes

There’s been a lot of dish about the Golden Globes being the Academy Awards lite. But what if that conventional wisdom is just plain wrong? Tonight proved that the 85-member Hollywood Foreign Press Association may just be more on the ball than the 6,000-plus Academy members.
Who were the winners and losers – and how does that shape the race to the Oscars as the Academy members get down to their final voting between February 8th and 19th?
- Ben Affleck and “Argo”: Earlier this week the Academy snubbed Affleck, ignoring him for a best director nomination. Tonight industry insiders gave the actor-director-writer a standing ovation for his fast-paced Hollywood-and-hostage drama “Argo.” Add to that the huge love the film and director got at the Critics’ Choice Awards and maybe there’s a revolution happening. Affleck is out of the running for Oscar, but “Argo” may now be the frontrunner.
