Despite being nominated for 4 Emmy awards, "Girls" -- written by and starring Lena Dunham -- didn't manage to take home any Emmys on Sunday night.

Nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series and Outstanding writing for a comedy series, Lena Dunham teased an exciting Season 2 before the ceremony.

"I can't tell you exactly what's going on," Dunham said. "It would be a spoiler alert. It involves sex, sharp objects ..."

Season 2 of "Girls" premieres in January 2013.
