Globes winners Meryl Streep, Jean Dujardin hit Weinstein party
Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep referred to Harvey Weinstein as "god" in her acceptance speech Sunday, taking the prize for actress in a drama. And if that's the case, Meryl, everyone went to god's house Sunday night.
The location was the former BAR210 space at the Beverly Hilton, tented and furnished in black to house the Weinstein Co.'s formal after-party celebrating many significant wins at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.'s big night.
Harvey's leading ladies brought Globes home -- Streep for "The Iron Lady" and Michelle Williams for "My Week With Marilyn" -- and to the party for that matter, celebrating victories with well-wishers including Cameron Diaz (showing once again with Diddy), Ewan McGregor, Viola Davis and Alexander Skarsgard.
The Ministry ran into Jean Dujardin of "The Artist," who won for actor in a musical or comedy, huddled with his producers in a corner.
"Shocked," he told us of his feelings on the win, staring down at his statuette. And where will the prize live? "In my bed," he said, pressing it to his face and snuggling it (this man really is the French Clooney, we may or may not have blushed).
Madonna popped by to see Mr. Weinstein after grabbing a win for best original song with "Masterpiece" from her film "W.E.," but stayed only a few moments before disappearing as an ageless Jane Fonda entered with a gentleman escort, fur stole wrapped around her shoulders and ready to schmooze.
Speaking of schmoozing, Relativity Media exec Ryan Kavanaugh picked over hors d'oeuvres at a table with Rob Lowe while Les Moonves and Julie Chen said hello to Penny Marshall. Mark Salling and Cory Monteith of "Glee" roamed with Malin Ackerman and Lindsay Lohan nearby.
As for Weinstein himself, he kept the company of Leonardo DiCaprio -- and those countless other worshippers Sunday night.
