Winners like Billy Bob Thornton, the cast of Fargo and the director of Birdman, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, all celebrated the 2015 Golden Globe Awards at FOX’s post-party on Sunday night and Dish Nation was there to get all the exclusive scoop.
“I didn’t hear it,” Thornton admitted on the red carpet when asked about his name being announced as winner for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
“We were all backstage when the show won and Colin Hanks poked my shoulder and said, ‘Hey dude, you won.’ and I was like huh? I didn’t even hear it.”
Held at the FOX Pavilion, stars from nominees and winners like Homeland, Wild, Gone Girl, The Book of Life, Fargo, Birdman and American Horror Story all celebrated with champagne while rubbing elbows with A-listers.
“Y’all don’t know Oprah like I know Oprah. I’ve partied with Oprah. That’s my girl… She’s not a party animal, but she can get the party going. She is what she is on television. I can handle anything. She handle the party. She’s the party handler.”
“They’re freaking amazing but I heard this was their last year,” Mowry said.
“You know why I like them? They don’t take it too seriously, they just have fun and that’s what that room needs. They’re great and they make me laugh.”
“We made it a fun date night at home,” Mowry said. “It was quirky and fun.”
Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu told Dish he thought there was an error when his name was called to win a Golden Globe.
“I thought someone made a mistake,” he said on the red carpet. “This is fantastic. Perfect ending for a fun insane ride.”
Starring Michael Keaton, who won Best Actor for his role in the film, Inarritu sang his praises.
“He deserved it… It was heaven,” he said of working with Keaton. “It was great. Best actor I have worked with.”
As for where the winners will stash their 5.5-pound statue?
“We just got a shelf in the house where I keep stuff…awards and stuff like that,” Thornton revealed.
“I’ll put it right next to all the other ones. The first week it has to be in the center.”
Fargo creator Noah Crawley joked, “Well I’ve already pawned it, so it’s gonna go to the pawn shop and I’ll get my guitars back.”
While Birdman director Inarritu joked he was going to sell his award to someone on the film’s team for a whopping seven dollars.
“He’s an incredibly lovely man and has been incredibly kind to me during our relationship and I would not be here without him,” he gushed. The 23-year-old British actor told Dish it was a struggle to have to wear glasses in the film.
“It’s an incredible challenge for someone, a young actor, to wear glasses when you don’t wear them,” he said. “But it’s something I overcame.”
