Madonna, Demi Moore light up CAA Golden Globes bash

Talent agency CAA populates most of film and television with its star clients above and below the line, and managed to coax seemingly all of them to the Soho House in West Hollywood on Friday.

As part of the agency's annual pre-Golden Globes celebration, the whole of the exclusive club was occupied by nominees and their famous cheerleaders. Where to begin? Madonna, Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Diddy, Michael Fassbender, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, Jamie Foxx. 

And that's to name a few. Some of our favorite scenes from the CAA bash were ...

Girl talk: Madonna sat on the rear patio in a form-fitting red dress and motorcycle gloves with Demi Moore and some agent types, and kept cool as a cucumber when Moore's ex Ashton Kutcher breezed in with his newly shaved face. 

Boys club: DiCaprio is still in "Gatsby" mode -- the actor held court F. Scott Fitzgerald style on a side patio with Orlando Bloom for hours, laughing and sharing an electronic cigarette. Bloom's gal Miranda Kerr kept up with them no problem, sipping Grey Goose cocktails and laughing with the boys.

Everyone loves Cameron: Honestly, Diaz was Miss Congeniality. Entering the fete with her "Knight and Day" costar Tom Cruise, Diaz was received with hugs, kisses and squeals by everyone from Witherspoon and Chelsea Handler to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham. Diddy stuck close to Cammy all evening.

Babysitters Club: Hollywood parents used CAA as the perfect excuse to hit the town, like Witherspoon and her agent husband Jim Toth, Robert Downey Jr. (no sight of pregnant wife Susan) and Robert DeNiro -- who welcomed a baby with Grace Hightower in December.

Also spotted: Axl Rose, Sean Penn, Ryan Kwanten, Alexander Skarsgard, Gerard Butler, Julianne Moore, Jason Bateman, Nick Nolte and couple Salma Hayek and Francois Pinault.

Natalie Portman likes Ashton Kutcher's parenting skills

Natalie Portman No Strings Attached Natalie Portman says she'd take parenting advice from "No Strings Attached" costar Ashton Kutcher.

The newly knocked-up actress told MTV News that Kutcher would come to their movie set with sweet stories about advice he gave his stepdaughters, which showed her that he was a committed parent to Demi Moore's kids.

Did we mention that everyone's all up in Portman's business these days?

Recently engaged to choreographer Benjamin Millepied, she oh-so-ungraciously included mention of their sex life in her Golden Globes acceptance speech.

The once-private starlet is basking in the limelight thanks to critical acclaim for playing a psycho-ballerina in "Black Swan." Honestly, we think awards should go to the actors who take on roles where they have to naturally pack on the pounds, then shed them by award season. Hear that, George Clooney, Jake Gyllenhaal and Matt Damon?

Pounds or no pounds, she's likely getting more awards if "Strings" doesn't ruin her chances, as "Norbit" did for Eddie Murphy. Her laugh has also taken on a life of its own.

"The weird thing is people knowing about something that's so private," she told MTV about her pregnancy. "But I mean, you get used to it. It's just wild to walk down the street and have a complete stranger be like, 'Congratulations!'"

Ricky Gervais: Planning for the Oscars, with Ellen's help? [poll]

Ricky Gervais in Ellen DeGeneres underwear -- he looks like the Oscar statue

Is Ricky Gervais angling for a job at the upcoming Academy Awards? Nah, the erstwhile Golden Globes host has simply been hanging around in Ellen DeGeneres' underpants. And we thought it all looked a little ... familiar.

DeGeneres sent the image out Monday on Twitter with the caption, "Please enjoy this photo of Ricky Gervais in my underwear." The chat show host had the pair custom made for Gervais to wear Sunday night after he told her last week he wears Ellen underwear only for special occasions.

On her show ahead of the awards, he mentioned having in mind some, well, "I call them 'targets,' " he said. "They're people in the audience."

Ellen had to know: Did he worry about anyone coming after him when the show was over? (And we have to ask: Did she know something ahead of time?)

Golden Globes: Serious glamour from Anne Hathaway, Jeremy Renner at InStyle bash

Anne Hathaway and Zac Braff at the InStyle Golden Globes party

Natalie Portman at the InStyle Golden Globes party Golden Globes parties can look like fun, but when it came to fashion at Sunday night's InStyle and Warner Bros. party, no one was playing around.

Anne Hathaway made a stunning show in her amber Armani number, leaning back in a private booth so casually you'd think she was in jeans. The upcoming Academy Awards host lounged amid the likes of "Inception" director Christopher Nolan, Malin Akerman, "Desperate Housewives" diva Vanessa Williams and Molly Sims.

Pregnant ladies Natalie Portman and Jane Krakowski crossed paths, both chatting with InStyle magazine editor Ariel Foxman before heading to their respective studio parties. "Black Swan" beauty Mila Kunis floated in and immediately hit the bar -- for java.

The brunet sipped from a coffee cup for the better part of an hour, deep in conversation with "The Town" star Jeremy Renner.

We spotted Lea Michele of "Glee" with her costar Amber Riley -- and can only hope the multi-talented Michele said hello to "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld, as they have something of a history.

Steinfeld looked adequately starstruck but took age-appropriate texting breaks at the event, which boasted a serious Godiva chocolate bar. It also boasted Tilda Swinton, very fashion forward in Jil Sander, chatting up W magazine editor Lynn Hirschberg.

Christina Aguilera had a coming out of sorts -- she's been quietly dating "Burlesque" production assistant Matt Rutler, but the pair made their official debut last night, holding hands and kissing for photographers.

Weinstein-Relativity Media party draws Kidman, Douglas, Paris Hilton and everyone else in town

Golden Globes: Weinstein-Relativity Media party draws Nicole Kidman, Michael Douglas, Paris Hilton and everyone else in town

Golden Globes parties

Lured by the combined chutzpah of execs Harvey Weinstein and Ryan Kavanaugh, it seemed few Golden Globe Awards partiers could resist a stop at the Weinstein-Relativity Media after-party, held at the Beverly Hilton's Bar210.

Nicole Kidman was an early arrival, chatting for a while in a high-profile part of the room before grabbing husband Keith Urban's hand tightly and pulling him along behind her out a back exit around 10:30 p.m. Ryan Gosling first hung with friends outdoors, tie gone and collar unbuttoned, doing a few dance moves to a mix featuring the voice of Arnold Schwarzenegger and grooving to Bananarama's "Cruel Summer."

Paris Hilton at a Golden Globes party Quentin Tarantino made a bee-line to the first bar he spotted only to find the outdoor filling station offered only Moet & Chandon; the director then recalculated and zipped inside to start with a Red Bull and vodka. Nearby, Weinstein was spotted at one point on the hunt for an assistant-type. Once the tall young man was located, Harvey instructed him firmly but politely: "Rule No. 1: You never leave my side."

The massive effort counted two long rooms to party in, both decked out with generous club booths and stationary buffets and bars to keep A-listers satiated. The right side saw Ryan Seacrest pridefully escorting his main squeeze, Julianne Hough, among 50 Cent and Eva Longoria. Presenter Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones chatted up Weinstein and Kavanaugh.

Speaking of Eva, the "Desperate Housewives" diva was in good spirits partying with a female friend and, we noted, one rather large security guard. The Hulk-sized escort didn't leave her side.

Matt Damon greeted friends and fans, including Bruce Willis, who made his way through the masses to share a hug and a few words with the "True Grit" star. Across the way was producer Brian Grazer and director Quentin Tarantino. Not far from them, Marc Anthony was the perfect escort for wife and presenter Jennifer Lopez.

Colin Firth graciously accepted congratulations for his best actor-drama win, then tried to catch his breath, with his wife at his side. A few feet away, "Blue Valentine" star Gosling was chatting up Kevin Bacon and wife Kyra Sedgwick, a nominee for "The Closer."

Equally attentive to family was "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth, who showed up on the late side, around 11 p.m. While his wife, Elsa Pataky, wasn't in sight, we heard the actor reassuring friends that his brother Liam was en route to the event.

Olivia Wilde and Ryan Gosling after the Golden Globe Awards "House" star Olivia Wilde looked regal in her flowing gown, standing near one of the bars as Gabourey Sidibe, last year's nominee for "Precious," passed by with plenty of sequins but at that point no shoes.

Before mingling and posing graciously with fan after fan after fan, Paris Hilton was perched on a sofa in the corner, far from the action. Attending with sister Nicky Hilton and beau Cy Waits, she was heard complaining about her seating: "It's insulting." Paris  seemed to perk up a bit later as she entered the party's photo booth and mugged for the camera -- including first popping into the pics of another couple already tucked behind the booth's curtain. The folks in the Red Cheese booth did not complain about the addition of her famous face to their sit-down.

Outside, "The King's Speech" director Tom Hooper listened attentively as "Dexter" nominee Julia Stiles told him about her upcoming gig on Broadway in Neil LaBute's "Fat Pig." Close by, "King's Speech" star Guy Pearce caught some air outside. Steve Buscemi, a winner for the HBO series "Boardwalk Empire," was surrounded by friends as he made his way into the party.

As the Beverly Hilton quieted, winner Claire Danes and husband Hugh Dancy high-tailed into the event, where a single Ryan Phillippe was for hours, alone, with producer-types in a booth.

Slipping into the party after 11 was actor Jon Voight, passing by KISS frontman Gene Simmons, with his sky-high tall son Nick and daughter Sophia, who appear with dad on the reality show "Gene Simmons: Family Jewels."

Golden Globes: HBO after-party gets 'Social,' vampires and ... Diddy

Golden Globes winner Steve Buscemi with Bill Paxton

Sometimes, you can't deny the obvious -- even at its Golden Globes after-party, HBO had something for everyone. Like Andrew Garfield, Diddy, Kyle Richards, Joe Manganiello and Aziz Ansari.

Talk about a grab bag: The cable network celebrated various wins Sunday with home-team guests and a few special surprises, including Hayden Panettiere, 50 Cent, Chris Noth, Zooey Deschanel, and Jon Hamm with partner Jennifer Westfeldt.

Claire Danes at the HBO Golden Globes party Partying poolside at the packed Beverly Hilton, where the Globes are televised each year, HBO reliably had victories to toast -- including Claire Danes' win for "Temple Grandin," Al Pacino's for "You Don't Know Jack" and Steve Buscemi's for "Boardwalk Empire," the series that also knocked "Mad Men" off its three-year Globes perch.

New "Spider-Man" love interest Emma Stone turned up in her hit Calvin Klein gown, talking to names attached to heavyweight Globe winner "The Social Network," including Aaron Sorkin and Andrew Garfield

Manganiello stayed with his "True Blood" pack, along with fiancée Audra Marie, roaming with the likes of Sam Trammel and Rutina Wesley, while Leighton Meester of "Country Strong" charmed at the inside bar.

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones made an appearance, but only an appearance, before jetting off to another bash.

And perhaps with synergy in mind, Bill Paxton swung by on the same night the network aired the first episode of his "Big Love," playing out its final season.

Helena Bonham Carter's mismatched shoes -- a Golden Globes homage to old-school 3-D glasses? [poll]

Helena Bonham Carter at the Golden Globes Helena Bonham Carter different shoes Golden Globes Helena Bonham Carter wore two different color shoes on the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday -- which makes us wonder if that's why Chris Colfer "literally screamed in her face," when he saw her, as he revealed backstage.

Colfer swore it was because he just loves her, but with the quirky "Alice in Wonderland" actress rocking one red shoe and one green, now we're simply not sure.

With Justin Bieber sporting purple-framed shades he said were for his upcoming 3-D movie, perhaps Bonham Carter was going retro, with an homage to the old-school 3-D glasses with one lens red, the other mismatched. And we remember how attractive those were.

Golden Globes: Robert Pattinson chugs a Golden Globe beer, ponders going French [updated]

Robert Pattinson seemed to be enjoying himself during the Golden Globe telecast — relaxing backstage with a beer and debating on how he'd present one of the trophies.

Our associates over at Awards Tracker peeped the hectic behind-the-scenes action, where the "Twilight Saga" star was spotted indulging in a Heineken with Summit Entertainment head Erik Feig. [For the record: A previous version of this post misspelled Erik Feig's name.]

Pattinson was tapped with actress Olivia Wilde to present best foreign-language film (a category that host Ricky Gervais said "no one in America cares about").

"And zee winner is," he said, doing his best Pepe Le Pew. Pattinson didn't use a gimmick -- and wound up not doing much at all next to a glowing Wilde.

Incidentally, backstage, Danish director Susan Bier pointed out that in her country, the win for "In a Better World" means "that a tiny country of 5 million people can actually manage to communicate to the rest of the world, which is a great achievement ... probably more than most of you realize."

See, Ricky, they do care in Denmark!

Golden Globes: Chris Colfer wants the LAPD to get ready

Chris Colfer at the 2011 Golden Globes Now that Chris Colfer has the Golden Globe he was sure was going to Eric Stonestreet, all bets are off.

"I really hope the LAPD lets me off with a warning tonight, because I'm gonna go crazy," the "Glee" star said backstage after winning for supporting actor in a TV series, adding that he's going to the Fox after-party "of course," and then party hopping.

"I don't have tickets," he said, "but hopefully this" -- he gestured with his award -- "will get me in."

Colfer choked back a few tears upon arrival in the press room -- not the restroom, as his mom thought he was saying on the phone -- but would he actually cry?

"Maybe, a little bit," said Colfer, who'd said he sort of "blacked out" when he heard his name called. "I have my big boy pants on, so I'm trying not to [cry]."

Golden Globes: Sandra Bullock, Eva Longoria prove looking good is best revenge


Thank you, Sandra Bullock and Eva Longoria, for not disappointing at the Golden Globes. 

Although 2010 wasn't the best year for either actress, given their respective divorces tied to spectacular scandals, the Ministry applauds them for proving that looking good is the best revenge.

Could Longoria look more polished, strong and stable in her black Zac Posen number? Introducing the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Asson., the organization responsible for the awards, there wasn't a visible trace of heartache. 

Likewise for Bullock, last year locked up in a Marchesa dress practically missile-firing glamour, who seems to have returned to her Southern-boho style. In Jenny Packham, Sandy gives off an ethereal vibe that's more in line with the easygoing girl we've been behind since her split from Jesse James.

Here's wishing you happy single mingling at the after parties.
