You go, Girls!

Between a car accident that left her with lasting injuries and announcing plans to divorce, Mayim Bialik's strength was really put to the test in 2012.
"When you've had a 2012 like me, things can only get better," she told PEOPLE on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards. "That's the glass half-full."
Judaism has helped get her through the tough times.
"I'm a person of deep religious faith," the Terani-clad actress, 37, explained. "I really believe that things will be right in the universe. Things are hard, but I've really been taught in my tradition that the harder things are, the greater the potential reward. I really believe that."

Jodie Foster brought some to tears when she spoke of her ailing mother during her revealing Golden Globes speech Sunday night – and, backstage, the actress continued to praise her.
"My mom is an amazing inspiration for me," Foster told reporters in the press room after her speech, in which she opened up about her family life with her two sons and ex-partner Cydney Bernard for the first time publicly.
"She picked me up from school and took me to see foreign films, sometimes two or three, and she wouldn't let me do my homework because she really wanted me to see movies. She passed that along to me, and I am grateful that she wanted me to be respected."

Just bust a move!
At the 14th Annual Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globes afterparty on Sunday, The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco was anything but shy on the dance floor.
After running over to Hayden Panettiere, the People's Choice Awards host looked the Nashville star up and down and exclaimed, "Gorgeous! Gorgeous!" about her blush, tiered strapless gown, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Grabbing each other's hands, Cuoco and Panettiere were engulfed in "animated conversation," but things got even more fun once the deejay played Madonna's "Like a Prayer."

Jodie Foster had some bewildered and some brought to tears during her speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
While being honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress, 50, delivered a powerful speech where she addressed everything from her sexuality to her relationship with her mother.
"While I'm here being all confessional, I guess I just have just a sudden urge to say something that I've never really been able to air in public," a smiling Foster said. "[It's] a declaration that I'm a little nervous about – but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist right now. I'm just going to put it out there – loud and proud."

As if being co-hosts and nominees at the Golden Globes weren't enough, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler amusingly added fake nominees to their job duties on Sunday.
The former Saturday Night Live castmates – nominated for best actress in a TV comedy, which was won by Lena Dunham of HBO's Girls – crashed the categories of best actor and actress in a TV movie or miniseries, putting on loony disguises and sneaking in as nominees for a fairly bizarre-sounding film called Dog President.
Poehler, sporting red hair and buck teeth, was introduced as actress Darcy St. Fudge, "a psychic who solves her own murder." Fey popped up in the actor category as Damian Francisco, "a professional volleyball player battling restless-leg syndrome."

"What does it say? I beat Meryl," Lawrence, 22, said upon receiving her Globe for her Silver Linings Playbook role on Sunday and inspecting the inscription.
But the star's comment wasn't as mean spirited as some may think.
