5 of 9: Lena Dunham thanks Chad Lowe

The 'Girls' creator and actress, who nabbed the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy, joked during her acceptance speech for 'Girls' winning Best Television Series - Comedy, 'I also promised myself that if I ever got this chance, I would thank Chad Lowe. I promised my mother.'

When asked backstage why she thanked the actor, Dunham said: 'Because Hillary Swank forgot. And I'm an a------.'

Swank won her first Oscar in 2000 for 'Boys Don't Cry' and left Lowe, her husband at the time, out of her acceptance speech.

Lowe responded to Dunham's remark on Twitter writing, 'Dearest @lenadunham YOU COMPLETE ME.'
