Someone (HBO, Judd Apatow, her dad) bought that Golden Globe win for Ms Dunham just like Pia Zadora’s hubby did for her because that can be the only explanation for how she won. Let the wondrous Wikipedia explain it to ya:

In 1981, Pia Zadora won a Golden Globe in the category “Newcomer-of-the-Year” for her performance in Butterfly, over such competition as Elizabeth McGovern (Ragtime) and Kathleen Turner (Body Heat). Accusations were made that the Foreign Press Association members had been bought off. Zadora’s husband, multimillionaire Meshulam Riklis, flew voting members to his casino, the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, which gave the appearance that they voted for Zadora to repay this. Riklis also invited voting members to his house for a lavish lunch and a showing of the film. He also spent a great deal on advertising.
