BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Mariah Carey, who was nominated for her song “The Star,” helped announce the winner of the best original score honor at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, which went to the Greek French Alexandre Desplat for “The Shape of Water.”

Desplat’s parents, (French father, Greek mother), met while both were studying in the United States at the University of California, Berkeley, and then they moved to Paris where he was born and raised.

The newly minted Golden Globes winners had a good reason to stop by the official show after-party this year, and it has nothing to do with the booze.

For the first time, winners could have their Globes trophies engraved at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s party. Among those who stopped by to get their names etched into their new awards were James Franco, Sterling K. Brown and Aziz Ansari.

Allison Janney, who won for her supporting role in “I, Tonya,” set off a flurry of camera flashes when she arrived at the engraving station.

“Three Billboards” writer-director Martin McDonagh was double-fisting at the trophy engraving table after his film, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” won for best screenplay and best drama picture. Best director winner Guillermo del Toro was also spotted at the table.
