The thing with the Golden Globes is that the celebrities mill about pretty freely, mingling from table to table during commercial breaks, and chatting among themselves as the show progresses. So, while you were watching Ricky Gervais take jabs at Johnny Depp and Cher, here's what else was going on in the ballroom, in no particular order.
-- Ryan Gosling struggling to clutch three drinks in his hand as he headed back to his table during the final break. Was he playing waiter for his tablemates or was he really thirsty? Can't say for sure.
-- Scarlett Johansson waited in line for the restroom and ended up using a stall recently vacated by "Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks. They said nothing to each other.
-- As Tom Hanks went to the little boys' room, a group of star-struck older women almost went in after him.
-- Heather Morris of "Glee" stopped a reporter mid-question to ask if she could fix the reporter's mascara. Naturally, she was obliged.
-- Jake Gyllenhaal nearly collided with a server holding a tray full of plates near the start of the show. Maybe he likes to make a splashy entrance.
