BEVERLY HILLS, California — If your name was Kate Winslet, Colin Farrell or Mickey Rourke — or if you appeared somewhere in the "Slumdog Millionaire" or "John Adams" end credits — you had many reasons to celebrate Sunday evening after the Golden Globe Awards. But as the legendary Globe parties raged throughout the night, plenty of other stars were also eager to party, regardless of whether they had a gold statuette in hand.
"I'm going to go see what's good," "Family Guy" mastermind Seth MacFarlane smiled as he hopped between the various parties at the enormous Beverly Hilton. "I'll see at what point I can no longer walk, and then that's probably where I'll stay."
"I kinda dorked out when Tom Brokaw went up [onstage]," "Harold & Kumar" star Kal Penn gushed, admitting his stalker subject for the night. "It would be pretty cool to meet him. I'm looking for him. Let me know if you see him."
Once the ceremony ended, the hotel lobby was flooded with even more unlikely star pairings than Brokaw and Kumar. Globe winners Tracy Morgan and Paul Giamatti posed for pictures with fans in front of a sign that read, "No photos in this room." Blake Lively caught up with Sally Field and Jeremy Piven. And the entire "Entourage" crew lived up to their characters' reputations, seeming to appear at every party simultaneously.
Perhaps the most impressive bash of the night, however, was the Warner Brothers/ InStyle party, where the smell of thousands of up-for-grabs Godiva chocolates filled the air. Leonardo DiCaprio, Anne Hathaway, Paris Hilton, Sting, Common and others mingled while a live band played under an enormous silver globe. Amanda Bynes sang along to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Nearby, a meeting of the Seths took place, as "Pineapple Express" star Seth Rogen greeted MacFarlane with a hearty "Hey, man! How's it going, dude?"
Through it all, however, the stars kept talking about a handful of the night's biggest wins.
"It's more fun than ever," Lacey Chabert said of this year's Globes. "[Kate Winslet] has had so many performances in the past that were so worthy of winning. ... She's living the dream, and we're all living it through her."
Asked for her most memorable moment, Bynes wasted no time. "Kate Winslet," she agreed. "Because I'm a huge fan of hers, and it's nice to see her do well."
"Kate Winslet's speech, her second one in particular, made me teary-eyed," "Twilight" star Ashley Greene confessed. "And then, when it cut to Leo, it was just beautiful. I thought it was amazing."
And then, of course, there was the buzz still surrounding the night's most heartfelt moment, when Heath Ledger won a Globe posthumously for Best Supporting Actor. "At the Golden Globes, the energy is pretty upbeat, chatty and jokey most of the time," "The Office" star Jenna Fischer observed. "But when Heath Ledger won, everybody collectively brought it down for a second and honored him. It was really poignant. Honestly, I was honored to be in the room when that happened. It was really moving. He was an amazing, amazing actor, and I was glad to see him get that tribute."
