BEVERLY HILLS, California — If your name was [movieperson id="166088"]Kate Winslet[/movieperson], [movieperson id="20078"]Colin Farrell[/movieperson] or [movieperson id="54512"]Mickey Rourke[/movieperson] — or if you appeared somewhere in the [movie id="364450"]“Slumdog Millionaire”[/movie] or [movie id="381611"]“John Adams”[/movie] end credits — you had many reasons to celebrate Sunday evening after the Golden Globe Awards . But as the legendary Globe parties raged throughout the night, plenty of other stars were also eager to party, regardless of whether they had a gold statuette in hand.
“I’m going to go see what’s good,” [movie id="276444"]“Family Guy”[/movie] mastermind [movieperson id="329646"]Seth MacFarlane[/movieperson] smiled as he hopped between the various parties at the enormous Beverly Hilton. “I’ll see at what point I can no longer walk, and then that’s probably where I’ll stay.”
“I kinda dorked out when Tom Brokaw went up [onstage],” [movie id="328283"]“Harold & Kumar”[/movie] star [movieperson id="248125"]Kal Penn[/movieperson] gushed, admitting his stalker subject for the night. “It would be pretty cool to meet him. I’m looking for him. Let me know if you see him.”
Once the ceremony ended, the hotel lobby was flooded with even more unlikely star pairings than Brokaw and Kumar. Globe winners Tracy Morgan and [movieperson id="23529"]Paul Giamatti[/movieperson] posed for pictures with fans in front of a sign that read, “No photos in this room.” [movieperson id="369042"]Blake Lively[/movieperson] caught up with [movieperson id="79127"]Sally Field[/movieperson] and [movieperson id="50278"]Jeremy Piven[/movieperson]. And the entire [movie id="259756"]“Entourage”[/movie] crew lived up to their characters’ reputations, seeming to appear at every party simultaneously.
Perhaps the most impressive bash of the night, however, was the Warner Brothers/ InStyle party, where the smell of thousands of up-for-grabs Godiva chocolates filled the air. [movieperson id="16710"]Leonardo DiCaprio[/movieperson], [movieperson id="257378"]Anne Hathaway[/movieperson], [artist id="2024407"]Paris Hilton[/artist], [artist id="1138"]Sting[/artist], [artist id="1184"]Common[/artist] and others mingled while a live band played under an enormous silver globe. [movieperson id="268122"]Amanda Bynes[/movieperson] sang along to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Nearby, a meeting of the Seths took place, as [movie id="330674"]“Pineapple Express”[/movie] star [movieperson id="262582"]Seth Rogen[/movieperson] greeted MacFarlane with a hearty “Hey, man! How’s it going, dude?”
Through it all, however, the stars kept talking about a handful of the night’s biggest wins.
“It’s more fun than ever,” [movieperson id="197990"]Lacey Chabert[/movieperson] said of this year’s Globes. “[Kate Winslet] has had so many performances in the past that were so worthy of winning. … She’s living the dream, and we’re all living it through her.”
Asked for her most memorable moment, Bynes wasted no time. “Kate Winslet,” she agreed. “Because I’m a huge fan of hers, and it’s nice to see her do well.”
“Kate Winslet’s speech, her second one in particular, made me teary-eyed,” [movie id="369195"]“Twilight”[/movie] star [movieperson id="1014864"]Ashley Greene[/movieperson] confessed. “And then, when it cut to Leo, it was just beautiful. I thought it was amazing.”
And then, of course, there was the buzz still surrounding the night’s most heartfelt moment, when [movieperson id="233661"]Heath Ledger[/movieperson] won a Globe posthumously for Best Supporting Actor. “At the Golden Globes, the energy is pretty upbeat, chatty and jokey most of the time,” “The Office” star [movieperson id="352267"]Jenna Fischer[/movieperson] observed. “But when Heath Ledger won, everybody collectively brought it down for a second and honored him. It was really poignant. Honestly, I was honored to be in the room when that happened. It was really moving. He was an amazing, amazing actor, and I was glad to see him get that tribute.”
