Those not dancing tried to figure out where to stow their awards. "It's frickin' heavy!" said Mad Men's January Jones. Desperate Housewives' Marcia Cross nibbled on a doughnut from a buffet that included chef Wolfgang Puck's macaroni and cheese and chicken pot pies, and Diane Lane got a touch-up at the L'Oréal Paris lounge while husband Josh Brolin waited patiently. America Ferrera giggled with Christina Applegate, and new parents Amy Poehler and Will Arnett hugged throughout the night.
