Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage had a long-awaited reunion with his pal Michelle Williams on the red carpet Sunday – but he didn't let her off the hook so easily.
"I sort of gave her a little grief," the proud new papa, 42, told reporters on Sunday at the HBO afterparty in Beverly Hills.
"Everybody is very busy, but it takes [this awards show] to get together."

Despite an off-color remark or two from host Ricky Gervais, Sunday's 69th annual Golden Globe Awards proved to be something unexpected – family friendly.
Named best actress for the TV drama Homeland, Claire Danes said that when she won her first Globe, for 1994's My So-Called Life, she was only 15 – and was so overwhelmed that she forgot to thank her parents.
She made up for that oversight on Sunday, and pointed out her mother, Carla, sitting in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Danes also thanked her husband, Hugh Dancy, "who keeps me sane and happy."
Throughout the evening, many winners took time to remember members of their families. The Artist's best comedy actor, Jean Dujardin, thanked "my beautiful and talented wife." (The movie was also named best picture comedy or musical.)

It took a lot of time – and a few extra pounds – for Michelle Williams to make her on-screen transformation into Marilyn Monroe.
But Williams, 31, says she wasn't the only one immersed in the world of the iconic actress during the production of My Week with Marilyn – especially around nighttime.
While accepting best-performance honors for her role in the movie at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards (live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel), Williams singled out her daughter from her relationship with Heath Ledger, 6-year-old Matilda Rose, whom she praised for "suffering through six months of bedtime stories, where all the princesses were read aloud in a Marilyn Monroe-[sounding] voice."

With the Golden Globes just days away, Michelle Williams, Bradley Cooper and many other stars mingled at a Weinstein Company and Audi-hosted bash at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont. The My Week with Marilyn star spent most of her night with pal Busy Philipps, and worked the party with a smile, staying until just before midnight. A casual Cooper (in a black leather jacket) showed up later and got chummy with Williams and the party's host, Harvey Weinstein. They captured the moment by snapping a photo together.
Also at the soiree: Lindsay Lohan, who was spotted greeting Jeremy Piven; Jane Lynch; and the cast of The Artist.

A year of studying abroad is probably a bit less daunting when your destination happens to be your home country.
That's the situation for Emma Watson, the British actress who's taking time away from Brown University to study at Oxford – in the same part of England where she grew up.
"It's really nice ... just to have that steady routine and back being home, being around people I love and doing what I love," Watson, 21, said Sunday at the London premiere of My Week with Marilyn.
Although she's got her nose in the books, Watson does have some movies in the works, she revealed.

She added a few pounds, had the blonde wig, and spent hours in makeup each day to play Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film My Week with Marilyn. But Michelle Williams had to learn to move like the Hollywood legend, too.
"I wasn't watching what I ate, let's put it that way," Williams, 31, told PEOPLE Sunday, at the film's New York premiere, about her physical transformation, which also included some helpful wardrobe tricks that helped her jiggle a bit more.
"The costume designer and Michelle came up with some great stuff," said director Simon Curtis. "But an awful lot is Williams's understanding of the way Marilyn walked, and the way Williams herself took on the wiggle."

What happened when Queen Elizabeth met Marilyn Monroe?
Even the Queen herself is interested in seeing that moment played out on the big screen: She plans to host a showing at the palace of the upcoming film My Week With Marilyn, starring Michelle Williams, a source tells PEOPLE.
In the film, Williams channels the sultry star, portraying Monroe as she was during a brief period in the summer of 1956, when the actress was in the U.K. filming The Prince and the Showgirl. It was during that time that Monroe met the Queen.
