Lena Dunham, creator, writer and star of HBO’s LGBT-inclusive comedy Girls, won big at last night’s Golden Globe Awards as she accepted the awards for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Comedy or Musical and Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical. While Dunham mentioned boyfriend Jack Antonoff (lead guitarist of rock band Fun. and co-founder of The Ally Coalition) in her thank you’s as “family” and sported a ring on her wedding finger, she said backstage, “I’m not engaged. I don’t want to get married until all gay people can get married.” She went on to say that Jodie Foster’s coming out speech “was mind-blowingly beautiful.” Girls second season premiered last night, you can watch Dunham’s acceptance speech below.
