Zac Efron at a Golden Globe Awards kickoff party How appropriate that Sue Sylvester's bullhorn would ring in the real start of award season. Jane Lynch and other Golden Globes-nominated lovelies turned up in West Hollywood on Sunday to celebrate the start of a hectic week.

A buzz-cut-sporting Zac Efron stopped by the bash, thrown by Audi and designer J. Mendel at Italian restaurant Cecconi's, arriving solo despite reports he's reconciled with Vanessa Hudgens. The young actor chatted with "Hairspray" costar Brittany Snow and their director, Adam Shankman.

While "Avatar" beauty Zoe Saldana held court in a private booth with fiancé Keith Britton, funny lady Kathy Griffin got her schmooze on with the likes of "Modern Family" stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Sofia Vergara.

James Marsden (who recently shared a hot tub with Ferguson on an episode of "Family") came through, as did a late-arriving Matthew Morrison, inbound from the Lakers game.

Stay tuned to the Ministry for a week of Golden Globes coverage!
