"Most of you know that Karl is away at WEF, a big equestrian event circuit, for many, many, many weeks and was not going to be able to come back for the Globes tomorrow," Cuoco said in an Instagram Story video. "We had talked about it and it was OK because it's virtual and I didn't want to make him come back for that."
The actress embraced her husband, saying, "I can't believe you got me so good. I can't believe you did that. These are tears by the way. I'm so glad you're here."
Although Cuoco didn't win the award, she enjoyed champagne and sweets at home. She shared this hilarious picture on Instagram with the caption, "I would like to thank...never mind !!😝🥂🎉 🍕 🧁"
Speaking to ET earlier this month, The Flight Attendant creator Steve Yockey praised Cuoco for her performance.
"I have to say, it's hugely exciting that people are recognizing Kaley's performance because she crushed it," he said. "She's the heart of the show and she's really carrying 90 percent of the screen time. And she just effortlessly does all of the comedy in the show so well and is also able to drop in those darker moments."
"I'm thrilled for her. It's amazing," he added. "I feel it's a long time coming, this recognition."
