It’s the question that will surely be debated until the end of time: Was Kathy Bates seriously injured or just crazy starstruck at the 2015 Golden Globes?

Reports have surfaced that the ‘American Horror Story’ actress was hurt at the awards show last night (Jan. 11). An eyewitness — who believes that someone may have stepped on Bates’ foot — told Us Weekly that the star “screamed out in pain and almost collapsed” before holding onto a chair for support. Ouch!

“She limped back to her table and looked to be crying in pain,” the eyewitness continued, telling the mag that people immediately rushed to the iconic actress’ aid. But as much as she seemed to be hurting at the time, Bates was all smiles at a Golden Globes after-party, reassuring Us, “I’m fine now! Absolutely fine.”

However, the star told PEOPLE a very different story, admitting that she cried out because she “couldn’t contain [her] excitement” over meeting ‘Fargo’ actress Allison Tolman.

“I binged on it,” she admitted to the magazine, further proving her good health by letting loose and dancing at an HBO after-party.

Rock on, Kathy Bates. Rock on.
