More Globes parties: Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Taylor Lautner and a host of other stars drop by
By far the best get-together on site at the Beverly Hilton was thrown by the Weinstein Co. in a secluded space at the southeast corner of the hotel. Honcho Harvey Weinstein served sushi and Champagne in honor of his heavily nominated films "Nine," "Inglourious Basterds" and "A Single Man."
Quail eggs and sticky rice were the spread, but the A-list names in attendance were the real buffet. Here's how the seating arrangements went down:
At the busiest table sat a lounging Kate Hudson, chatting with Fergie and hubby Josh Duhamel. Behind her Rob Marshall shared conversation with Daniel Day Lewis, next to Tom Ford interacting with his directorial debut muse Julianne Moore.
Quentin Tarantino took up residence one booth over with several ladies, while his "Basterds" actor Eli Roth shared a California roll with Diane Kruger. Nearby, her main squeeze, Joshua Jackson, spoke with "Up in the Air" star Anna Kendrickabout "Basterds" star Christoph Waltz's big win for best supporting actor.
Nicole Kidman sat a few feet away from the crunch of industry types and admirers ...
Outside, stylist Rachel Zoe held court with husband Rodger Berman and actor Barry Watson. Zoe's clients for the Globes included Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Garner, as well as Hudson -- some pretty heavy names to be out in Sunday's rain.
"The rain, I mean, and the red carpet wasn't tented!" Zoe told me of her panic when the downpour ensued. "But the ladies still did their thing."
Indeed, Ms. Zoe.
Other attendees at the Weinstein bash: Matt Damon, Taylor Lautner and Colin Firth.
Meanwhile, atop the hotel, Nick Cannon hosted the Globes' official after-party, presented by NBC Universal, and drop-bys included Jon Hamm and partner Jennifer Westfeldt. Hamm's gal was super chummy with "30 Rock" creator and star Tina Fey, roaming the party together, Champagne in hand.
