When the night’s big winner Jean Dugardin entered the party everyone stood up from their table’s for a standing ovation! And even though Meryl Streep lost to Viola Davis, she was still the most popular guest to snap cell phone photos with. Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Guy Pearce both rushed up to her and gushed how excited they were to meet her. She was in great spirits and even cheered glasses with the other nominees Glenn Close, Berenice Bejo and Michelle Williams as they all said it unison, “We’re such LOSERS!”
Sofia Vergara was a social butterfly, true to form, and mingled with all the guests, taking playful photos and kissing the guests like Alan Cumming and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. She also spent a good part of the evening talking with Jean Dujardin but actually communicating through his translator. Then they took some personal photos together for her blackberry. The cast of Glee were surprise guests and didn’t know there was a party there that night. They ended up grabbing their own table and sticking together, with Darren Criss even sitting on Diana Agron’s lap.
