There was, it seems, a bit of a burden to winning a SAG award Sunday night: carrying it afterwards. “It feels like I’m holding a toddler,” The Office’s Angela Kinsey confided as she clutched her statuette (which actually weighs 12 lbs.) following this year’s ceremony on Jan. 28. All the more reason to kick back post-show at the eleventh annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Gala, cohosted by PEOPLE and the Entertainment Industry Foundation. Among those joining Kinsey at the party: the gang from Grey’s Anatomy (who bonded with the Bobby cast); Julie Andrews (who chatted up Carol Burnett); and Ashton Kutcher, earning devoted husband points by holding wife Demi Moore‘s train. Up past her bedtime, Little Miss Sunshine Abigail Breslin declared herself “very excited”—and wisely kept her statuette resting at her feet. Before the night was over, John Legend performed a terrific set, inspiring Sara Ramirez and others to get their grooves on.

But the evening wasn’t just about celebrating. PEOPLE and EIF gave a joint $100,000 donation to the SAG Foundation, a philanthropic organization for actors in need. Along with the party, it’s our way of thanking television and film performers for another great year.
