The big party doesn’t officially start until 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 12, but all the big nominees — and other stars — were out in Los Angeles on Jan. 10 celebrating Golden Globes weekend.
Looks like the stars love awards season — which officially kicks off with the Golden Globes on Jan. 12 — as much as we do. Everyone from Nina Dobrev to Sandra Bullock to Amy Adams stepped out on Jan. 10 to party in preparation of the big awards show.
Stars Celebrate Before The Golden Globes
The AFI Awards were held on Jan. 10, a precursor to the bigger awards ceremonies. And though the ceremony was considerably smaller, it brought out some huge stars.
At the reception afterwards, Sandra posed for pictures and mucked it up with other celebs like Emma Thompson. Meanwhile, Amy Adams hung out with Octavia Spencer and Kate Mara — and also posed for some elegant snaps.
Some TV stars were on hand as well, as Mad Men leading man Jon Hamm palled around with his costars, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss.
Tom Hanks, Lupita Myong’o, Naomi Watts, Liev Schrieber, Michelle Dockery, Anna Kendrick, and many more stars were also on hand for the pre-Golden Globes party.
Then on Jan. 11, The Art of Elysium’s Heaven Gala was held, where Nina Dobrev stole the show in an eye-catching bright red, strapless dress with silver star-shaped embellishments. She deserves a freaking trophy just for looking so good! Nina was joined by Evan Rachel Wood, Kate Bosworth, and more at the Globes weekend party.
The 2014 Golden Globes
The big night, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will have millions watching, as the best and brightest convene in Los Angeles to celebrate each other’s accomplishments.
Like most years, the 2014 Golden Globes have some amazing nominees facing off for the awards. It’ll be interesting to see if Matthew McConaughey can take down Tom Hanks and Robert Redford for Best Actor in a Drama, and if The Wolf of Wall Street can pull an upset and overtake American Hustle for Best Motion Picture. And that’s just the beginning!
Tune into the ceremony on NBC at 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 12 — but for the time being, check out how all the stars are enjoying the Golden Globes weekend above!
