More Globes parties: Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Taylor Lautner and a host of other stars drop by

Nicole With the number of Golden Globe bashes in the double digits this year, Sunday night's party attendance was a healthy mix of stars saluting their studios and showing face practically everywhere.

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.

Online reviews of the Spot tag it lovingly as a "dive" and report that a Bud Light can be had for a mere $3.25.

That's a lot of work to hit $500. We'd do the math, but this whole episode has left us a bit tipsy.

In other, more sober but not exactly sobering "24" news,  Gregory Itzin will reprise his role as the really annoying and morally weak former President Charles Logan. Apparently, Cherry Jones, as the coolest-ever television-character woman President Allison Taylor, will need him -- oddly enough -- for help solving a pressing international crisis that's unfolding rapidly. 

In case you'd forgotten, President Logan was Emmy-nominated. But President Taylor won the dang thing.
