It's Lena Dunham's world and we're all just living in it!

The 26-year-old creator, director and star of HBO's hit series Girls had quite the night on Sunday at the 2013 Golden Globes: Not only did she take home the prize for Best Actress in a TV Comedy, Girls pulled an upset and beat out Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory for Best Comedy Series. Plus, the season two premiere of Girls pulled in 866,000 viewers, which falls just short of the 872,000 viewers the series debut attracted.

It's safe to say Dunham is definitely becoming the voice, or at least a voice, of her generation, to borrow a line from her quirky character Hannah. We caught up with Dunham and her costars Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet at the HBO Golden Globes after-party about their big win and how they were planning on celebrating.

"I feel crazy and deranged and my feet hurt in the good way. It's really thrilling," Dunham said of her big night. "I never imagined any of it. It's beyond imagination." Dunham also had a message for all the girls who love and relate to Girls, saying, "I hope that the show makes you feel like the world is a smaller place and makes you feel connected to each other and it just means everything to me that you're watching!"

Mamet told us she was feeling "overwhelmed, excited, so many things" after their big win, but admitted the cast probably wouldn't be partying too hard. "We are all pretty boring humans and this has been so incredible, but really exhausting. Lena said it best, 'We're going to try and make it to midnight!'"

And Williams and Dunham had quite the Girls moment during the show, as Williams told us, "I turned to Lena at one point and was like, 'Wait, we haven't called home yet!' And she was like, 'No, we haven't!' So we both called our parents next to each other. It was very exciting!"
