Wounded egos aside, the Golden Globe Awards was not without its casualties.
American Horror Story: Freak Show actress Kathy Bates was apparently heard screaming out in agony after suffering an accident mid ceremony.
Her cries were apparently heard moments before she lost out on the Best Supporting Actress in a TV Drama, Movie or Miniseries to Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt (the other Mrs Bates).
The source of her pain? E! Online initially reported that someone stepped, rather heavily, on her foot.
The story went on to claim that she successfully making it back to her seat to see Froggatt claim the prize, and appeared in some discomfort as the British actress wittily recalled clashing horns with her fellow nominee earlier the same evening.

It was initially reported to have been Fonda’s boyfriend, Richard Perry, who had passed out, but a spokesperson for the actress later corrected the claims.
