Sounds like this is a real thrill for the actor, who has been watching the Golden Globes for as long as he can remember. He tells reporters, “I hate to say that I am a CinderFella but I kind of am. I have been watching the GG since I was an embryo and I actually got a Facebook from a friend who told me that one of her memories of me in school was when I got up and told everyone that I loved the Golden Globes.”

So, who was the first person this 20-year-old actor called after he won? “I was on the phone with my mom. And I was trying to say I can’t talk right now because I am in the press room. You’re in the rest room, no, the press room.”

While he was gleeful beyond words, it sounds like Chris will remember the night for a very long time, including a most embarrassing moment! “Tonight I completely embarrassed myself in front of Helena Bonham Carter and I saw her on the red carpet and screamed in her face. I will never forget when she kissed me on the cheek.”
