Allison Williams knew it was a cliche, but she and her castmates were honored just to be there among Hollywood celebrities. The show’s creator and star, Lena Dunham, won early in the night and the gang was thrilled about that.

Then the show itself won a Best Comedy award, and Allison said you can see in the video that they were pleasantly shocked to be honored. She said it is hard to wrap your head around, but they all have fun making their show and they are glad others appreciate it.

Girls co-star Adam Driver also appears in the movie Lincoln with Daniel Day-Lewis. Day-Lewis was also at the Golden Globes, and when he walked by, he said hello to Adam. Then he slyly whispered, “Good job, girls,” and set off the entire gang into squeals, cheers, and laughter.

Apparently Allison is good at coming up with nicknames: DDL for Daniel Day-Lewis, K Rip for Kelly, and M Stray for Strahan.

Kelly said it might have encouraged her to take more risks when she was younger.
