Golden Globes: The red carpet, the dresses, the parties, and more parties
The Golden Globes are about the awards, of course, rewarding outstanding work by folks in movies and television. But let's get real — the Globes are also about those dresses on the red carpet and the parties that come after the show.
The Golden Globes are looser than the Academy Awards, with a smaller crowd, and snacks and drinks and a big room to socialize in off-camera during the show — plus all the after-parties happen in or adjacent to the Beverly Hilton, making it easy for industry friends to mix and mingle and party-hop in what might be the best bunch of "work" celebrations around.
Don't forget the pre-parties that happened in the days leading to Sunday, either, sprinkled around the Critics' Choice Awards on Friday and getting names like "BAFTA" into headlines ahead of the British Academy of Film Television Arts' Tuesday announcement of its own list of nominees.
