FOX Golden Globes After Party - H 2012

After all the Golden Globes were handed out Sunday night, the industry hit the parties. The Hollywood Reporter staffers were on the scene at all the night's big bashes to bring you the inside scoop. Keep checking back for the latest.

8:50 p.m. CBS Corp.'s Leslie Moonves and Showtime's Matt Blank chat among the Homeland cast at the 20th Century Fox party. Nearby, Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly tells THR that the broadcast networks' shutout is not something he's worried about. "It was just a good year for cable. Some years you win, and some you don't," he says with a laugh.

9 p.m. Also at the Fox party, Showtime entertainment president David Nevins tells THR that great writing attracts great actors and is over the moon for Homeland's success in its critically divisive second season. "It's a great time in television writing right now," he says, with winners Claire Danes and Damian Lewis shaking hand after hand behind him. "And it'll happen for the broadcast networks, too."

9:18 p.m. American Horror Story nominee Jessica Lange, last year's winner, has a much quieter experience at the Fox party. This year, the press-shy actress keeps it quiet, chatting for a lengthy spell with AHS executive producer Dante Di Loreto.
