Though most of our readers had Big Bang Theory as the odds-on favorite to win at the Golden Globes Sunday, that prediction turned out to be as untrue as the statement "Pi is exactly 3."

Although Andy Samberg and Brooklyn Nine-Nine pulled off surprising upsets at the Globes, taking the best actor in a TV series and best series awards in the comedy or musical categories, the beloved cast of TBBT pulled off a victory of their own: They all looked amazing on the red carpet. Take a look at how everyone's favorite geeks traded in their T-shirts and turtlenecks for tailored suits and gowns.

It must be a relief for Simon Helberg, who plays the perpetually turtleneck-clad Howard, to have a bow tie around his neck instead.
