At awards shows like last night's Golden Globes, typically the only things getting ripped are the envelopes containing the winners' names. And, ya know, Jack Nicholson.

Try telling that to Chloë Sevigny, who suffered an embarrassing clothing crisis as she picked up her Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series.

As Sevigny ascended the stage to accept the trophy from presenters Kristen Bell and Chace Crawford, her escort accidentally stepped on her flowing Valentino gown, causing it to rip.

The flustered-looking Sevigny shrieked and yelped "Whoops!" as the ruffled material tore, then tried to regain her composure as she thanked her castmates.

But the fashion-forward actress couldn't resist mentioning the wardrobe malfunction, pausing to look at the escort and saying, "I can't believe you just ripped my dress!"

Seriously, though, a shredded Valentino is still a million times better than the French braid and ankle-length denim skirts Sevigny has to wear on "Big Love."

As for the "Globe"-trotting escort, we think it's safe to say he's not getting much "Big Love" right now.
