Jennifer Coolidge, Austin Butler, and more
LOS ANGELES — The Golden Globes celebrated primetime on Tuesday night.
After NBC declined to air the awards ceremony in 2022 due to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association scandal, TV viewers saw the appeal of Hollywood and awards season — with Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” and “The Banshees of Inisherin” setting up two major blockbusters. Both of them win.
Eddie Murphy delivered Will Smith’s infamous slap at the Oscars in his Cecil B. DeMille Award speech and host Jerrod Carmichael, and made a joke about Tom Cruise.
But the scene on stage in the star-studded Beverly Hilton was only part of the story.
Here’s what you didn’t see at the 80th Golden Globe Awards:

‘Yellowstone’ star Cole Hauser loses money taking the oath
“Yellowstone” star Cole Hauser was gorgeous during the show with his wife, Cynthia, sitting with his arm around his wife’s chair as if on a date. Earlier, on the red carpet, Hauser admitted he’s been losing big time on his New Year’s resolution for his daughter, Steely Rose.
“My daughter said every time I swear I should pay her a dollar,” Hauser said.
“He’s not very successful with that now,” added his wife of 16 years.
Despite the increased payments, Hauser says the only drawback to Yellowstone’s stunning success is that it “takes me away” from family.
“It’s hard because I feel like everyone feels like they own my husband now,” Cynthia added. “All we want is time with him. It’s a tough time.”
Brad Pitt, Quentin Tarantino: Twice Upon a Time in Hollywood
Brad Pitt may have been nominated for his supporting role in “Babylon,” but the newly-cleaned star is reliving his glory days with his “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” director Quentin Tarantino.
The two began hanging out minutes after the doors opened in the ballroom and the bros-fest never stopped, with Pete often throwing his head back laughing at Tarantino’s arm-waving cartoon anecdotes. Even if he came home empty-handed, Pete didn’t lose his smile from his podium-side seat.
Rihanna phones Ryan Coogler’s house
Rihanna skipped the Globes carpet. But the Best Female Singer nominated for Original Song (for “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”) was a major player on the dance floor — especially after she made her way belatedly to her stageside seat spectacularly. gown with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, father of her son born in May.
Late in the show, “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler and his wife, Zinzi Evans, made out with their toddler, which caught Rihanna’s attention. Coogler handed the phone to Rihanna, who paid a heartfelt salutation.
A$AP Rocky was the perfect Globes date, carrying Rihanna’s handbag and making sure it didn’t get on her gown while the two stepped out early at the awards show.
Austin Butler can’t help but look like Elvis
If you think Austin Butler still looks like Elvis Presley after starring in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic “Elvis,” you’re not alone.
The 31-year-old actor, who took home a Best Dramatic Actor award for his performance as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, said backstage that he hears from fans about the ongoing vocal similarity but swears it’s unintentional.
Butler said, “I don’t think I look like him, but I think I should. More like when somebody’s been living in another country for a long time.”
Amanda Seyfried denied her iPhone acceptance speech
“Yellowstone” stars Hauser and Mo Bringing Plenty announced that Amanda Seyfried won best actress in a limited series for her role in The Dropout, but said the actress was working on a new musical and could not accept the award herself. Totally correct.
But the duo didn’t hear cries from the “The Dropout” table or watch the video call featuring Seyfried dressed casually, seemingly ready to speak from an iPhone held in an outstretched hand. At least Seyfried saw that honor in real time.
Jennifer Coolidge is lost in a sea of selfies
“White Lotus” star Jennifer Coolidge killed the movie on stage during a hilarious Best Actress in a Limited Series speech. At Billboard/HFPA’s official Golden Globes afterparty, Coolidge was nearly consumed by a sea of selfie-seeking fans. Coolidge managed to personalize her Globe at the party’s cameo podium, without turning down a superfan, following along with her fellow winners: “Blackbird” star Paul Walter Hauser and “Abbott Elementary” star Tyler James Williams.
