Before ticking off Elton John's husband by winning for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes last night, Madonna got into another altercation ... by accidentally stepping all over Jessica Biel's unfortunate dress on the red carpet.
But Biel didn't feel the need to rant on and on about it on Facebook, as she and Madonna appeared to laugh off the fashion faux pas moments later.
No fighting over material, girls.

Golden Globes Fight Back Against Payola Allegations
2/7/2011 8:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is firing back ... suing the PR firm that sued them last month ... claiming they broke their contract when they tried airing the HFPA's dirty laundry and accused them of accepting payola.
The PR company The Michael Russell Group sued the HFPA in January claiming they were lied to when the HFPA unceremoniously dumped them in 2009. But the biggest part of that lawsuit was that the MRG alleged the HFPA accepted money and gifts in exchange for Golden Globes.
Now the HFPA has filed a lawsuit of its own, saying the MRG committed fraud when they did several deals on behalf of the HFPA ... that also benefited themselves.
They also allege the MRG violated their contract by trying to to embarrass the HFPA when they "manufactured a fanciful tale of Hollywood intrigue ... with its colorful reference to 'payola.'"
The HFPA claims the MRG's allegations come "without a shred of evidence."
They are suing for breach of contract and fraud and are asking for unspecified damages.
John Travolta -- Globes Were 'More Like a Roast'
1/23/2011 12:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
John Travolta -- who was the implied butt of a controversial joke from Ricky Gervais during the Golden Globes -- seemed to acknowledge the situation last night when he told our photog the event was "more like a roast" than an awards show.
John was all smiles leaving an event at the Hollywood Palladium last night as dozens of fans asked for autographs and congratulated him on his new baby. But he was stone cold silent when we asked him if he had any words for Gervais.
Sometimes saying nothing truly says it all.

Ricky Gervais doesn't care if he's ever asked back to host the Golden Globes"" ... because he's "not gonna do it again anyway."
A smiling Gervais was weathering the storm in New York this morning -- following his super-controversial statements at the awards show -- when Ricky told us, "I think twice is enough."
After the photog mentioned that Ricky's fellow comics seem to be standing by the performance -- Gervais replied, "Well, it's nice to be loved by your peers ... they stick by you."
HBO Star DENIED from Awards Party -- TOO DRUNK
1/17/2011 12:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
One of the stars from "Boardwalk Empire" was so HAMMERED after the "Golden Globes" last night ... she was rejected from a "GG" afterparty -- and then FELL DOWN as she tried to stumble to her car.
Paz de la Huerta -- who plays Lucy Danziger on the HBO show -- was wearing her "Globes" dress and an "I'm SLOSHED" look on her face when she tried to get into a party at the Chateau Marmont.
Once the doorman told her she was too drunk to enter, Paz (and a guy who was basically propping her up) began to walk away ... when they both collapsed under the weight of her booziness -- leaving a serious RIP in the back of her dress.
Think she's hungover this morning?
Ricky Gervais and De Niro

Ricky Gervais and Robert De Niro both talked their way into a firestorm at the "Golden Globes" last night ... after each attempted risky jokes that some consider downright offensive.
Gervais' dig came while commenting on the movie, "I Love You Phillip Morris" -- when he said, "Two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay – which is the exact opposite of some famous Scientologists ... probably." Gervais added, "My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke."
A short time later, De Niro left jaws hanging while thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press for his lifetime achievement award ... saying, "I'm sorry more members of the foreign press aren't with us tonight, but many were deported right before the show along with most of the waiters. And Javier Bardem."
So we gotta ask ...
