On the Red Carpet
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan‘s husband, Jason Ralph, was playing Pokémon GO on the red carpet.
Jim Carrey was spotted introducing his girlfriend Ginger Gonzaga to people on the red carpet. The couple made their red carpet debut just the night before at the Showtime Golden Globes Nominees Celebration.
Emily Blunt raved about her sparkly Alexander McQueen gown, telling pals, “It’s like a museum piece, isn’t it?”
Dax Shepard, who was enjoying date night with wife Kristen Bell, enthusiastically greeted Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk, telling the A Star Is Born actor and nominated star, “Oh my God! Hi! I’ve never met you before!”
Jessica Chastain and husband Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo were stopped by security before entering the venue. Security appeared to have no idea who they were but was nice and patient while he fished for their tickets out of his tuxedo pocket.
Inside the Show
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift made a low-key solo entrance during a commercial break after the best TV drama awards category.
Heidi Klum and new fiancé Tom Kaulitz were inseparable during the show and were spotted walking hand-in-hand during commercial breaks. The couple, who have been dating for nearly a year, made their red carpet debut as an engaged duo after the singer proposed on Christmas Eve.
Keri Russell joined her longtime partner and The Americans costar Matthew Rhys into the men’s room after seeing the long line to the women’s room. “Boys don’t use stalls. I’m going to use a stall,” she was heard saying.
Denzel Washington was stopped by a fan who asked, “Denzel, can I take a picture?,” and proceeded to pose with his arm around the actor. “Did I say yes? When you ask someone for a picture you wait for them to say yes,” Washington responded.
Taraji P. Henson started screaming, “Oh my God! Oh my God! No one move, no one move. My ring, my ring!,” after she realized her borrowed piece of jewelry was missing from her finger. Luckily, Terry Crews got on his knees and helped find it as crowds of people tried to leave. “You know Taraji, she is the best! I’d do anything for her,” Crews told PEOPLE.
The Favourite‘s Joe Alwyn asked costar Stone about how to leave the ballroom. Though she suggested exiting through the backstage area, where she said “it’s not so crazy.” In the end, Alwyn was spotted walking out the front door with costar Nicholas Hoult.
Timothée Chalamet and John David Washington congratulated each other on being losers in their respective categories. “Neither one of us won!” the Beautiful Boy star said hugging the Blackkklansman actor. “But you are the real deal,” the son of actor Denzel said.
Mark Ronson and Lady Gaga celebrated their big win together for original song, A Star Is Born‘s “Shallow” with songwriters Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.
Also backstage after her win, Gaga shut down a reporter who asked her if she gives Cooper credit for the original song victory. “I would answer that except this is for Best Original Song, so he was incredible as a director and I loved working with him and he made me a better actress, but what we are really excited to be on this stage for is how much he believed in this song,” she replied.
Anne Hathaway gave Olivia Colman a celebratory hug after The Favourite star got off stage following her best actress win. “I’m so happy you won. I was rooting for you so bad,” Hathaway told Coleman. “I’m so happy, I’m going to cry right now. You deserve it so much.”
