22 things you missed after the Globes ended – USA TODAY
When Ricky Gervais signed off on Sunday night after a three-hour telecast, the party had actually only just begun.Â USA TODAY reporters Bill Keveney, Bryan Alexander, Carly Mallenbaum and Andrea Mandell have all the good stuff from the biggest parties:
The Fox party had:
1. A hidden Leo DiCaprio
Inside the Fox bash there was a swarm of people in the corner of the party, many of whom were celebratingÂ The Revenantâs Golden Globe wins (best actor, director, drama). DirectorÂ Alejandro GonzÃ¡lez IÃ±Ã¡rritu took photos with his familyÂ and actor Will Poulter was laughing and chatting.Â But where was winner DiCaprio? Oh, there he wasÂ hidden in the corner of the room, seatedÂ with his longtime pal Tobey Maguire.
2. âThe Martianâ crew keeping the party down to Earth
A smiling Matt Damon entered the party, Globe statuette in hand. After wading through a sea of well-wishers, he clinked glasses with his MartianÂ director, Ridley Scott. How will DamonÂ commemorate his potato-eating protagonist in the film? âMaybe Iâll get (Scott) a potato soufflÃ© or something,â said Damon. Scott’s plansÂ after the (many)Â party stops celebratingÂ his movieâs best comedy win were earth-bound.Â âAfter that, bed,â he smiled.
3. Jennifer Lawrenceâs smooch
Lawrence, best dramatic film actress winner for Joy, planted a brightÂ orange kiss on director David O. Russellâs cheek. âIâm gonna keep this lipstick, because of the respect that we were given tonight,â he told us on his way into the party. âYou never know whatâs going to happen this (awards) season, and it may be all I get.â LawrenceÂ met up with Russell inside the party after aÂ quick-changeÂ âÂ she swapped her bright red Dior gown for a short black Versace dress.
The ‘InStyle’ party had:
4. Photogenic pairs
If there is noÂ photo proof, did you actually attend the Globes? Everyone was snapping shots inside the InStyle bash, which offered starsÂ colorful macarons, a bumping dance floor and a venue bathed in purple lights.Â Vanessa Hudgens and boyfriend Austin Butler waited in line for the photo booth, whileÂ Today Show co-hosts Al Roker and Natalie Morales took videos of their entrance into the party. Meanwhile,Â sisters Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian took selfies on a fanâs iPhoneÂ âÂ because she had a âcute accent,â according to Kardashian.
The many Globes after-parties are all held inside the Beverly Hilton,Â within walking distance from one another, soÂ naturally,Â the stars like to party hop. On our way to the InStyle bash, we saw: duet partners Selena Gomez and Charlie Puth power-walking from party-to-party, Globe-winner Brie Larson changing locales after switching shoes (she had on flat jellies) and married couple Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed holding hands and getting ready to head home.
The HBO party had:
6. Raves for Ricky
At the HBO bash, a big star magnet that takes over the Hilton’s pool area and an adjoining restaurant, Gervais got a thumbs up from a guy who knows what itâs like to host a big showÂ âÂ Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg. âI loved him. I always love Ricky. Iâm always going to root for the comedian, though,â said Samberg, who received critical praise for the job he did at the Emmys in September.
Samberg said Gervais delivered his trademark, edgy comedy.Â âThatâs what he does. He doesnât care. He goes for it. Heâs a very brave comic,â said the actor, whose Fox series recently moved to Tuesday as part of a two-hour comedy block. âI think he embodies what comedy is, really about where heâll say the things that chill the room, but then he wins them back with a really great punch line, which is impressive. He doesnât back off anything.â
When a reporter mentioned the âooohsâ that followed some Gervais jokes in the interview room, Samberg said, âI was saying that. He did a lot of stuff I wouldnât do. The cool thing about Gervais is that he genuinely seems not to care. Thatâs when a comedian gets dangerous.â
7. Khaleesi…andÂ Ned Stark
At the Game of Thrones table, there was Emilia Clarke, who plays Khaleesi (a Dothraki queen). And at one Thrones table, it looked like there was an apparition. Could that be Ned Stark, whose first-season beheading was an early sign of Thronesâ shocking twists and turns? It wasnât Ned, but it was the actor who played him, Sean Bean.
When a reporter told Bean he was disappointed that Ned got killed so early in the series, the actor replied, âMe, too.”Â But Bean, one of the stars of Globes-winning film, The Martian, is keeping busy. He finished a run on TNTâs Legends and he said he plays a Centurion in The Young Messiah, which follows Jesus Christ at a young age.
8. Han Solo
Even in a room full of stars, Harrison Ford was a focus of attention at HBO, with partygoers,Â photographers and even other actors aware of his presence…
9. A happy Oyelowo
Denzel Washingtonâs lifetime achievement award presentation was a highlight of the evening for David Oyelowo, who was nominated for his performance in HBOâs Nightingale.Â âDenzel is my hero. To see him honored is fantastic,â said Oyelowo, whose A United Kingdom and Queen of Katwe, the latter with Lupita Nyongâo, are scheduled to hit theaters this year.
10. An uncanny connection
Walton Goggins, a star of Quentin Tarantinoâs The Hateful Eight, and Tony Goldwyn, the president on ABCâs Scandal, shared a bear hug near at the base of the stairs leading into the party.Â How did they know each other? âHe directed episodes of Justified,” said Goggins.Â (Although many fans know Goldwyn from his acting work, heâs often busy behind the scenes directing and producing.)Â Goldwyn marveled at Gogginsâ performance in the Tarantino film: âIsnât he great?â
The Weinstein/Netflix party had:
11. A MoÃ«tÂ vending machine
That’s right, guests could literally deposit a (free) coin to get a (free) mini bottle of MoÃ«tÂ champagne. We were so enamored we took a video.
Oh, and there was a Laura Mercier beauty bar, too. #treats!
12. A surge toward Katy Perry
Halfway through the party Katy Perry showed up and joined Orlando Bloom in a corner booth. The party surged in their direction, causing extra security to flank their tables. The two later left with a carful of friends.
13. Ricky Gervais hamming it up
By the time the Globes hostÂ joined the bash (around 9:15 p.m.), Gervais was ready to relax. To prove it, the comedian hammed it up by cheekilyÂ layingÂ atop a banquette (Most Interesting Man in the World-style). Nearby,Â Jamie Foxx arrivedÂ (mini champagne bottle in hand)Â and promptly took selfies with model Jourdan Dunn and Harvey Weinstein. Did we mention we saw Aziz Ansari pulling out his Beyonce Single Ladies moves? Because it was epic.
14. Helen Mirren getting her groove on
Look no further than Mirren’s cocktail table for the best vibes. That’s where Morgan Freeman was sitting, and when Stevie Wonder songs came on, the two stars, plus their friends, got up and started getting down. (It only got better when the DJ slid into Jade’s Don’t Walk Away.)
15. Costume changes
Like J-Law, at the Weinstein/Netflix bashÂ fashion gals Kate Bosworth and Olivia Palermo both changed before they arrived. After her long, sparklyÂ red carpet look, Bosworth opted for a second embellished Dolce Gabbana number (this time featuring trousers). “I’m not very good at being at a party in a train. This is a little more party friendly,” she told us.
The Amazon party had:
16. Cool movie news
Transparent actors Jeffrey Tambor and Bradley Whitford, both Emmy winners, were among the stars attending Amazonâs party in the Beverly Hiltonâs top-floor Stardust Ballroom, as the streaming service joined other networks and studios hosting post-Globes bashes.Â Whitford said he’s looking forward to his upcoming film, Get Out, which also stars Catherine Keener. Key & Peeleâs Jordan Peele will direct what promises to be an intriguing combination:Â a horror film that deals with race.Â âI think Jordan is one of the most talented people on the planet,â Whitford said. âI canât wait to work with him.â
The Universal/NBC/Focus Features party had:
17. Amy and her new man:
Trainwreck star Amy Schumer held court at a center table with her new boyfriend Ben Hanisch andÂ her sister Kim Caramele, along with Judd Apatow and America Ferrara. But come 9 p.m., Schumer had enough, she blew a kiss to Ferrara across the table and headed for the exit, with Kim helping out with her gown’s train. As they exited, they passed Eva Longoria who was posing for pictures with friends of her own.
18. Lots of trophies
There were winners to be had at the party. Christian Slater clutched his Golden Globe as he happily hugged Longoria and received back-slaps as he sailed through the party. Kate Winslet dazzled as cameras came to life with her entry. But no one was more appreciative then her Steve Jobs co-star Michael Fassbender. He immediately stepped in front of the flashes to bow down,Â hands upraised, repeatedly to Winslet and her new Golden Globe trophy. The smiling Fassbender raised his head up long enough to hug Winslet and engage in goofy conversation.
19. Typical boyfriend-girlfriend convos
Fassbender might not have won a Golden Globe trophy, but that did not dampen the Irish actor’s mood. He partied in a private area with girlfriend Alicia Vikander, who had her parents in tow. Fassbender was a picture-taking machine, happily accepting party-goers’ requests to pose for selfies. Finally, Vikander had to lay down the law as she readied to exit the party. “Michael, come on,” she said with a smile.Â Fassbender took a final picture with fans, gave a smiling, “Gotta go!” and exited the party behind Vikander.
20. The everlasting Eddie Redmayne
The Danish Girl went home empty-handed from the Golden Globes. But director Tom Hooper was happy to party with his stars Vikander (along with boyfriend Fassbender) and Eddie Redmayne, who flew in from the set of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on Sunday afternoon. The jet-lagged Redmayne stayed as long as he could at the party before departing. “He’s got amazing stamina,” said Hooper.
21. A swift J.Lo sighting
How do you know a party is dying down quickly? When Jennifer Lopez does a 180-degree entrance. Lopez entered hand-in-hand with boyfriend Casper Smart, causing a string of party-goers to follow the star couple. But as Lopez eyed the increasingly-celebrity-free event, she suddenly stopped on a dime, causing a pile-up of followers behind her. She made a sudden turn right and marched straight for a side exit, a security guard lighting up the carpet ahead of her to prevent any stumbles. All told, Lopez, who previously hit the InStyle party,Â was at this bash for less than five minutes.
22. A sweet sign off
Nine-year-old Room star Jacob Tremblay stayed out past 11:15 p.m., but was wide-eyed as he took final snaps on the empty red carpet before departing. He posed with his parents in front of a GoldenÂ Globe sign to remember the night. Tremblay than walked towards the valet line, arm linked with his motherâs, starring up at the lights before getting into the family car.
