Ventimiglia, who sported glasses and appeared to have wet hair, also gave a shout-out to the winners from the evening, including his costar, Sterling K. Brown, who made Golden Globes history as the first black man to win best actor in a television series, drama.

“Congratulations Sterling. Excited. And everyone else, great night,” Ventimiglia said.

“I’m back home, I’m studying for tomorrow,” said Ventimiglia, who showcased his script before he confirmed: “And yes, I fell in the pool.”
