This year's Golden Globes ceremony may have been shelved
, but Hairspray
star Nikki Blonsky isn't letting it get her down – or, stop her from throwing furniture.
Upon grabbing her best actress nomination, "I actually threw a coffee table, I was so excited," Blonsky, 19, told PEOPLE at a Slim Fast party in Los Angeles Tuesday. "I was so excited, I couldn't even control myself and I just picked up the coffee table and I threw it. I was in a hotel – if we were at home, my mom would've probably screamed if I threw a coffee table."
Though Blonsky may not be getting decked out for the Golden Globes this year, the awards season is far from over. Her secret to getting red carpet ready? "I just always make sure my nails are done." – Shruti Dhalwala and Juliana Bunim
