Blowouts, face masks and manis, oh my! See how all the stars prep before hitting the red carpet at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Awards season is finally here! But before the biggest stars in Hollywood make their grand entrance on the red carpet at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards Sunday night at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, they’re spending plenty of time getting primped and primed behind-the-scenes. And of course, they shared everything that went down during their pre-show glam sessions all over Instagram.

Check out how tonight’s nominees and presenters are getting ready before the show!

Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell‘s pre-red carpet ritual involves hair, makeup…and indulging in a delicious meal to hold her through the night!

“I can’t remember exactly, but I’m pretty sure the rule is to eat as much as humanely possible before squeezing into a formal dress. Right? #goldenglobes,” Bell hilariously captioned a photo before the award show.

The actress also posted a photo of her dress and all the gold strappy sandals she was deciding between and jokingly said, “So many blisters.”

The day before, Rachel Brosnahan also squeezed in a last-minute facial with esthetician Joanna Vargas. And even though Brosnahan says the tool looks “terrifying,” she promises it isn’t. “Her magic tools are the dreamiest,” the actress wrote.
