Meryl Streep offered to sit on Mariah Carey's lap

"I'm not even sure if she knew who I was", she laughed.

It all started during a commercial break when the Elusive Chanteuse took a harmless bathroom break. Clearly enjoying chatting to fellow guests, Mariah admitted she stopped to mingle during an ad break and then couldn't get back to her seat in time.

Streep donned black as many of her colleagues did and brought National Domestic Workers Alliance Director Ai-jen Poo as her date for the evening. According to Carey, she grabbed the closest empty seat that she could find before the commercial break ended, and lo-and-behold, Streep came back and asked for her seat back. Streep said to her that Carey could "take her seat" anytime.

Ah, to be a fly on that wall.

And for Kelly, attending the Golden Globe Awards on January 7 was a virtual smorgasbord of her favorite movie and television stars. She said, 'Oh my God they made me sit down because we were moving!' "That's Meryl Streep!" the American Idol victor exclaimed upon spotting the Oscar-winning actress at the tail end of an interview with E! I just really love her.

Mariah also used the social media site to praise Oprah Winfrey for her ground-breaking and hugely inspirational speech as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Kelly - who has her two children with her husband Brandon Blackstock - presented the award for Best Original Song alongside country singer Keith Urban and surprised the star-studded audience by singing the results. However, when she arrived to the seat, Steven Spielberg was sitting right there looking at her as if to say, "you're not Meryl?".

I had not personally met Meryl Streep before I checked my voicemail and heard her soft voice, familiar from so many of my favorite films, introducing herself.
