Flashback: Totally '80s! Check Out These Familiar Faces at the 1983 Golden Globes

The 72nd Golden Globe Awards are just days away! With over 30 years of coverage under our belt, we're taking a trip down memory lane back to 1983 -- ET's very first time on the carpet with the winners we still love today.

A frontrunner that night was Steven Spielberg's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, but the scene stealer on the carpet was the adorable 7-year-old Drew Barrymore who loved getting decked out for the big show.

"I think they're very fun!" Barrymore said of awards shows. "I like to get dressed up for them."

Dustin Hoffman was another winner that evening, taking home the Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for his performance in Tootsie.

"I guess the one thing that's nice about [awards shows] -- is that the people can get up and thank the people that worked on the various projects that aren't in the camera eye, that don't get the glory, but contribute to really making it a success," said Hoffman.

Best Actor in a Drama went to Gandhi star Ben Kingsley, who told ET backstage that the reality had yet to sink in.

"It's all happening very suddenly," said Kingsley. "I've hardly had time to really feel the delight. I haven't even sat down with my wife yet and shared it with her. After that, I think I'll really feel it."

Julie Andrews was awarded Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for Victor Victoria, who told us what the awards season means for the industry.

"I don't think there's anything wrong with in paying tribute to wonderful actresses, wonderful actors, wonderful costume designers -- I say choreographers, I think it's probably the one category that isn't nominated," said Andrews. "To make the public aware of all the details that go into making a film is not a bad idea."

Other winners of the night included Meryl Streep, Jessica Lange, Alan Alda, Joan Collins, Shelley Long, and John Forsythe.
