Sometimes, you can't deny the obvious -- even at its Golden Globes after-party, HBO had something for everyone. Like Andrew Garfield, Diddy, Kyle Richards, Joe Manganiello and Aziz Ansari.

Talk about a grab bag: The cable network celebrated various wins Sunday with home-team guests and a few special surprises, including Hayden Panettiere, 50 Cent, Chris Noth, Zooey Deschanel, and Jon Hamm with partner Jennifer Westfeldt.

Claire Danes at the HBO Golden Globes party Partying poolside at the packed Beverly Hilton, where the Globes are televised each year, HBO reliably had victories to toast -- including Claire Danes' win for "Temple Grandin," Al Pacino's for "You Don't Know Jack" and Steve Buscemi's for "Boardwalk Empire," the series that also knocked "Mad Men" off its three-year Globes perch.

Manganiello stayed with his "True Blood" pack, along with fiancée Audra Marie, roaming with the likes of Sam Trammel and Rutina Wesley, while Leighton Meester of "Country Strong" charmed at the inside bar.

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones made an appearance, but only an appearance, before jetting off to another bash.

And perhaps with synergy in mind, Bill Paxton swung by on the same night the network aired the first episode of his "Big Love," playing out its final season.
