Golden Globes parties: Talking 'Horror' at Fox; Kidman glows at HBO
The Beverly Hilton brims with after-parties after the Golden Globes telecast each year, and the Ministry isn't shy about checking out the clinking glasses and shmoozing stars. In addition to the well-attended InStyle / Warner Bros. party and the Weinstein bash, individual networks cheered on their own players at various locations within the hotel.
HBO lighted up restaurant Circa 55 and the adjoining pool area with a theme party inspired by the early '90s collections of designer Issey Miyake, coaxing out Claire Danes, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Evan Rachel Wood, and "Enlightened" star Laura Dern, who nabbed best TV actress, comedy or musical.
Fox held a viewing and after-party for big winners, including "The Descendants" and "Modern Family" on the rooftop of the former Robinson's-May parking structure, a few feet from the hotel.
While "Glee" had a quiet awards year, show creator Ryan Murphy counted a win for "American Horror Story," as Jessica Lange took home gold for her turn as Constance, the over-the-top neighbor of a seriously haunted Los Angeles estate.
"She was very sweet," Murphy told us of Lange, who backstage had celebrated Murphy's creativity and his persistence in landing her for the role. But now that we know the next season of "Horror Story" will focus on an entirely new home and family, will Lange be back?
"I'll never tell," Murphy said.
