Golden Globes 2018: Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney Engrave their Statuettes

To celebrate its 75th anniversary, the HFPA presented its first official viewing and after-party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the overflow.

The biggest draw of this party was a station where winners could get their newly awarded trophies engraved with their names.

“Is this the first?” Allison Janney asked of the HFPA’s inaugural event. “I haven’t been to the Globes in awhile, I’m sorry to say, but this is very lovely — it looks beautiful in here,” Janney said. “I’m hoping to get a drink and I just got this engraved. They did spell my name right and I’m thrilled. I checked it before they glued it on there.”

Janney even recorded the engraving process on her iPhone for posterity: “I filmed it so I can look at it over and over again whenever I’m having a low moment. I’ll just watch it and remember to feel good about myself and feel proud about this moment tonight,” she said with a laugh.

“Coco” director Lee Unkrich said: “You used to have to wait a long time to get [the engraved award] sent to you. It felt like a few weeks, so it’s very nice to walk out with it all set to go.”

Sam Rockwell’s name was carved into his trophy as he watched the live telecast with his manager, Jason Weinberg, as the latter’s other client, Laura Dern, won the trophy for best supporting TV actress.

“It’s so nice to know that I’ll have a job for at least a few more minutes,” joked fellow winner Rachel Brosnahan, star of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” “It’s really special to be here tonight amongst all of these incredible women — and men — supporting the Time’s Up campaign movement, taking action together.”

For Sterling K. Brown, his win represented a groundbreaking moment for diversity. “To know that I was the first African-American actor to win in this category in 75 years? I was shocked, first and foremost, “Aad then, now, honored to be the Jackie Robinson, the best lead actor, in the Globes is pretty cool.”

Winner Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) noted: “This has been a long time coming and it feels good!”
