We can thank the Golden Globes for yet another thing: a Baby-Sitters Club reunion!

Rachael Leigh Cook (Mary Anne Spier) met up with her co-stars from the 1995 coming-of-age classic -- Larisa Oleynik (Dawn Schafer), Bre Blair (Stacey McGill) and Schuyler Fisk (Kristy Thomas) -- as well as the movie's director, Melanie Mayron, to watch the awards show on Sunday night.

The epic hang came together because Fisk, who lives in Texas, and Oleynik, who calls New York City home, happened to be in Los Angeles, so Mayron offered to host the group at her place.



Cook told ET that after a bit of back-and-forth in an email chain, they were all set for a trip down memory lane -- and plenty of Italian food.

"There is always so much to catch up on -- marriages, babies, breakups, work, politics. You name it, we went there," she explained. "Then we stopped chatting to watch Oprah’s Golden Globes speech. It felt like the perfect way to end a girl power kind of a night."

Even though it's been 22 years since BSC whisked into our lives, Cook admitted it felt like nothing had changed.

"It's like no time has passed at all! First of all, these girls look amazing," the 38-year-old actress gushed. "And I think we all trusted each other enough back then, even as young teens, to behave like our authentic selves. So for better (them) or worse (me), we’re still very similar to the people we were back in 1995."

Though the ladies have hung out a few times in recent years, including during a reunion screening at the Alamo Draft House Theater in Austin, Texas, back in 2015, they're pretty much ruling out an official reboot -- but Cook has a pretty good idea of how they can all be on camera again!

"We have considered doing a spoof of some kind, but I think we are just looking for an excuse to hang out together more," she joked.

Both Fisk and Oleynik shared the same pic from their reunion to Instagram, with The Secret World of Alex Mack alum captioning her post, "I’m super bad at posing for photos, but also super good at loving these women until my heart bursts wide open, so I guess the latter wins out."

Even though she wasn't at the party, Marla Sokoloff was tagged in Fisk's Instagram. TheFuller House star was clearly missed, but she couldn't make it because her husband was sick. Cook -- who stars in and produced Frozen in Love, a Hallmark Channel movie premiering on Jan. 13 -- still keeps in touch with her, though, so hopefully, she'll make the next epic reunion!

"I adore all of these girls, but the one I see the most is definitely Marla Sokoloff, who ironically played my sworn enemy, Cokie Mason, who was always trying to steal Logan Bruno," she explained. "Marla and I hang out a lot, and our kids are around the same ages. She’s the best -- so funny!"

Stacey Ramsower, who was at the Austin reunion, couldn't make it either, and two other faces -- Tricia Joe (Claudia Kishi) and Zelda Harris (Jessi Ramsey) -- were missing as well. Cook says they haven't been able to join the rest of the gang yet because they don't live in L.A. "I really hope they know that they are missed," she said.
