A year after his emotional comeback performance earned him a Golden Globe for The Wrestler, Mickey Rourke was once again on cloud nine at this year's show, thanks to the new love he squired down the red carpet.
Rourke's girlfriend – who has widely been misidentified on the Internet – is Russian-born model Anastassija Makarenko, Rourke reveals exclusively to PEOPLE. "She's a gift from heaven," says the actor, 57, who seemed smitten as he kept a tight grip the stunning blonde throughout the evening.
"Obviously she's a very beautiful woman," says Rourke. "But she's got the biggest heart, she's got a great family, she's really close to her mother and father – they're great people."

For actors giving thanks at award shows, it's not uncommon to hear touching shout-outs to family, agents, spouses and the man upstairs. But Sunday's Golden Globes telecast was positively a lovefest for stars, who called out their romantic partners in their acceptance speeches or cuddled with them on the red carpet and at the various after-parties.
From Sandra Bullock's tearful dedication to husband Jesse James to George Clooney's playful interaction with girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis on the red carpet to Jeff Bridges's insistence that camera crews pan to the audience to get a full shot of his wife while he accepted his best actor trophy, here are some of the night's sweetest soundbites and cutest sightings:
"To my husband, there is no – there is no surprise that my work got better when I met you because I never knew what it felt like for someone to have my back. So, thank you." – Best actress in a drama winner Bullock, emotionally thanking husband Jesse James for his support.

I'd been looking forward to Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes ever since he showed up on the Emmys: He did a sensational bit about how what would be considered average good looks in the movies pass for handsome on television. The thought of him at the helm of an entire awards show was irresistible.
But at the start of the Globes, as he complained about seeing all the glory of creating The Office go to NBC's Steve Carrell – then upped the ante by suggesting the American version has jumped the shark – a viewer might have realized how tough it is to tell when Gervais actually is joking. I suddenly worried that his faint air of damp anxiety might turn out in this situation to be genuine flop sweat.
Gervais's often discomfiting humor – the fatuous smile, the darting eyes, the giggle, the tinily precise, perfect digs at others and, yes, at himself – operates on the tricky notion that you'll like him most when he's most unlikable. Yet here he was in a room of stars dressed to the nines, with grand projects to promote and wearing ribbons in support of Haiti.
It was as if the ugliest, whiniest mutt in the shelter thought it had a chance of being loved.

Jennifer Aniston was not short on male companionship – friends and former flames alike – during an eventful Golden Globes weekend.
The actress, 40, kicked off Friday night at CAA's pre-Golden Globes party at the Buffalo Club in Santa Monica. There, she ran into rumored former flame Bradley Cooper, with whom she shared a brief hug.
Aniston spent much of the evening chatting with Gerard Butler, her costar in The Bounty Hunter, due out in March.

It was a rainy night in Los Angeles on Sunday, but there was still plenty of stargazing at the Golden Globe afterparties – even among the celebrities themselves.
At the Summit after-party at the Beverly Hilton, Glee star Matthew Morrison seemed almost as thrilled with the people he'd met as with his sitcom winning best comedy TV series.
"I got to tell you, I talked to Sean Penn and George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro," he said. "It's been amazing."
De Niro, it turns out, is apparently a Glee fan. Doing his best De Niro impression, Morrison recalled: "He came up to me and said, 'Hey, you the guy, you the guy.' "
The Twilight actors were also in demand, with Bill Paxton bringing his 12-year-old daughter Lydia to the Summit party in search of Taylor Lautner. (Unfortunately, he had already left.)

Perhaps it was wise for Susan Downey to tell her husband, Robert Downey Jr., not to prepare a speech for the Golden Globe Awards. He did just fine without one.
"I know he didn't have [a speech] fully prepared, but he is really good off the cuff, and he actually tends to do better when he doesn't plan things," Susan said backstage after the ceremony.
The actor gave one of the more amusing addresses of the evening in accepting the best comedy actor award for his Sherlock Holmes role. "I would like to thank Susan Downey for telling me that Matt Damon was going to win, so don't bother to prepare a speech," the actor began.

Michael C. Hall, who has been undergoing treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma, made his first public appearance since announcing his battle with the disease at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
"It's nice to see colleagues," he told reporters after winning the award for best actor in a drama for Showtime's Dexter, "and for me to show [people] I am doing fine."
The very private actor, 38, only revealed his battle with cancer four days ago, and said he originally wanted to keep his condition a secret.
"I had every intention of keeping it quiet, but because award shows were imminent, I had to make a statement," Hall said. But, he added, that it was nice to be able to make the statement when his prognosis was good.

Meryl Streep beat her very own self by winning the Golden Globe as best leading actress in Julie & Julia, as the celebrated "French Chef," Julia Child. During a highpoint of Sunday night's ceremony, the revered leading lady first said that she wants to change her name to T-Bone Streep, then turned unabashedly emotional.
Also nominated for her role in the marital comedy It's Complicated, Streep chose the moment of her Julia victory to pay tribute to her mother, who had no patience for doom and gloom, she said.
"I'm not like that," said Streep, who admitted she finds it difficult to put on her happy face, even during a celebratory night like the one she was experiencing, in light of all difficulties in the world. But, she continued, "I am really grateful."
She also thanked her writer-director on Julie & Julia, Nora Ephron. "I love Nora," she said – twice.

The arrivals line at the 67th annual Golden Globes Awards proved uncharacteristically soggy on Sunday – but the stars still beamed as they walked the red carpet.
A downpour greeted nominees, presenters and guests as they poured from their limousines and into the Beverly Hilton Hotel. As Tina Fey described the scene, "It's not rain, it's just God crying for NBC."
Despite the weather, the stars made time for interview and fans. While George Clooney's constant companion Elisabetta Canalis remained shielded from the inclement weather, the actor braved the elements and the crowds, greeting people face-to-face in the grandstands and signing autographs.
Shrugging off the precipitation, a sunny Julia Roberts, who was accompanied by her agent and Tom Hanks, with wife Rita Wilson, used the TV cameras to wish First Lady Michelle Obama a happy birthday.
