As they toasted and cheered, your favorite A-listers were raising awareness, too

George Glooney and host Amey Poehler hammed it up while sipping Moët & Chandon

A-list celebrities were doing more than dishing on who designed their couture while walking the red carpet. Moët & Chandon, the official champagne of the Golden Globes, reignited their "Toast for a Cause" campaign for the fourth year. As guests raised their Imperial minis, they were raising money for their favorite charities.

Celebrities including George Clooney, Kate Hudson, Hugh Jackman, Jon Hamm, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Glenn Close, Debra Messing, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Hayden Panettiere, Steve Buscemi, Aziz Ansari, and Jack Black were among stars that kicked back a mini flute of champagne.

Moët & Chandon donated to charities such as the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, supported by Sean "Diddy" Combs; the World Wildlife Fund, supported by Kate Hudson; and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, which is supported by Jon Hamm. For each toast raised, Moët & Chandon donates $1,000 to the chosen charity in the nominees’ names. Including this year’s outstanding participation, nearly $200,000 has been raised for over 130 charities.

Here are the bubbly statistics: More than 7,500 glasses of Moët & Chandon were served at the Golden Globes award show, 1,500 mini bottles were served on the red carpet, and 375 bottles of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2004 were uncorked to kick off the festivities inside the ballroom.

NBC Says It Won’t Air the Golden Globes in 2022

Joe Flint

NBC said it will not broadcast the Golden Globes next year after several major entertainment companies and stars indicated that they would not participate in the awards show or work with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that oversees the event.

At issue is how the HFPA runs the Globes. The organization, comprised of 87 foreign journalists, has long been criticized by Hollywood executives for its small size and outsize influence. Specifically, the organization has been criticized for accepting paid trips and other perks from studios and cozying up to big stars in return for access. The group has also been under fire for its lack of diversity and earlier this year confirmed it had no Black members.

The concerns surrounding the HFPA operations were raised again earlier this year in a Los Angeles Times report. In response to the Los Angeles Times, the HFPA said, “None of these allegations has ever been proven in court or in any investigation, [and they] simply repeat old tropes about the HFPA and reflect unconscious bias against the HFPA’s diverse membership.”

The HFPA last week announced a new set of changes to address its diversity and oversight, including expanding its membership by 50% over the next 18 months and making changes within its executive ranks. “We understand that the hard work starts now and we remain dedicated to becoming a better organization and an example of diversity, transparency, and accountability in this industry,” the HFPA posted on its website last week.

Those efforts were not enough to appease its critics. In the past few days, Netflix , Amazon and WarnerMedia said they would not participate in the Golden Globes unless the organization initiated a substantial overhaul of its operations. Celebrities including Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo also have spoken out against the group in recent days. Tom Cruise returned his three Golden Globe trophies for “Born on the Fourth of July,” “Jerry Maguire” and “Magnolia” in protest, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

What Do the World's Most Famous Celebrities Eat for Dinner? Come Preview the 2016 Golden Globes Menu

Come Sunday, we know exactly what the world's most famous TV and film actors are being served for dinner. The menu for this year's Golden Globes was just unveiled at the Beverly Hilton, and it looks rather delicious. The menu was crafted by the hotel's executive chef, Troy N. Thompson, and features steak, salmon, sweet potatoes, and more. Yum, yum, and yum.

From the starter to the dessert and, of course, the vegetarian option, look at everything the celebs will be eating.

California Market Salad

Filet of Beef With Marinara Crust and Slow-Roasted Black Garlic Steelhead Trout Spaghetti Squash, Fried Capers, Sweet Potatoes

Salt-Baked Heirloom Sweet Potatoes With Creamed Corn Glaze, Fricassee of Winter Vegetables

Flourless Grand Marnier Carmella, Lemon Mousseline Croquatine, California Almond Cake, and Strawberry, Blueberry, Kiwi, and Mango Coulis

We also got a glimpse at what the table will look like when actors like Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, and Leonardo DiCaprio sit down to gossip and nosh. You're checking out the exact floral arrangement that'll grace the stars' tables (designed by Mark Held of Mark's Garden), flanked by water and bottles from the night's champagne sponsor, Moët & Chandon (this year marks 25 years of Moët being the official bubbly of the Golden Globes—and they're celebrating with the cutest caddy of mini bottles).

The recipes shared for the above dishes look pretty time-intensive, but there was one that stood out for its relative simplicity. If you've been hungrily eyeing that almond cake, we've got you.

California Almond Cake


Cream together the almond paste, soft butter, and sugar. Slowly add the triple sec and eggs. Do not overmix.

Sift together the flour and the baking powder. Add to the above and mix only until blended.

Generously brush soft butter into a 9-inch diameter cake mold and dust with flour.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes.

Allow to cool and keep in the fridge until you're ready to eat.

Cut into slices and dust with powder sugar before serving.

Make sure you're ready for the awards: Come see all the nominees!

'Time's Up Globes': Jennifer Aniston, Amy Schumer and more criticise HFPA ahead of Golden Globe Awards 2021

While all eyes were on the Golden Globes Awards 2021 winners, stars like Jennifer Aniston, Sterling K. Brown, Ava DuVernay extended their support to 'Time's Up Globes'. Stars took to social media and point out that there isn't a single Black person in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's ranks, criticising their lack of diversity.

On Friday, Time's Up took to social media and shared an image that read, "Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Not a single Black member out of 87." They shared the message with the caption, "A cosmetic fix isn’t enough. #TIMESUPGlobes #TIMESUP." Stars shared the image with a similar caption to call out the committee.

Aniston, Brown, Mark Ruffalo, Kerry Washington, Jurnee Smollett, Amy Schumer, Sean Hayes, Simon Pegg, DeVon Franklin, America Ferrera, Mark Duplass, Courtney Kemp, Tom Verica, Busy Phillips, Dakota Johnson, Patton Oswalt, Laura Dern and Alyssa Milano were among the many stars who extended their support by sharing the image and the message.

Jennifer Aniston extended her support on Instagram.

DuVernay shared a statement, giving her 'two cents' on the issue. "Many artists who’ve made strong work this year are being amplified on tonight’s show. I’m proudly introducing Hamilton to applaud the artistry of Lin-Manuel and the whole cast and crew," she said.

"To be clear, the pressure applied to the Globes and its partners from now on isn’t about validation or shiny things from this particular group. The truth that’s not often discussed is that awards play a part in the economic reality of Black filmmakers, artists of color and women creators in this business. Unfortunately, these shiny things matter to those who finance, greenlight, produce, distribute and market our projects. Therefore, everyone must have balanced access and consideration so that the playing field can be more equitable for artists of all kinds, colors and cultures," her statement added.

Following the backlash, HFPA released a statement assuring that they will work on a plan to implement the changes. "We are fully committed to ensuring our membership is reflective of the communities around the world who love film, TV and the artists inspiring and educating them. We understand that we need to bring in Black members, as well as members from other underrepresented backgrounds, and we will immediately work to implement an action plan to achieve these goals as soon as possible," their statement read.

Celebrities Who Opened Up About Having Abortions

Individuals deserve bodily autonomy and the right to get a safe and common medical procedure when they need it. And although the majority of Americans support abortion access , for some reason this idea is still up for debate and regularly under attack from lawmakers .

Over the past few years, following an uptick in moves against reproductive rights, a few of Hollywood&rsquos biggest stars have made their personal lives political and drawn attention to the issue of abortion. While often celeb-led movements are super cringe , stars being vocal and unapologetic about their own abortion stories is actually invaluable in normalizing the experience and lifting the stigma that surrounds it. After all, when people have the ability to choose when and if they want to grow their families, they have a better chance of accomplishing what they want to do and living the lives they want. And seeing high-profile people share their own reproductive health choices (and the positive aftermath of having that access), it’s an overwhelming reminder that we pretty much all know and love someone who has had an abortion.

As Michelle Williams said in her 2019 Golden Globes speech: &ldquoWhen you put this in someone&rsquos hands, you&rsquore acknowledging the choices that they make as an actor moment by moment, scene by scene, day by day &mdash but you&rsquore also acknowledging the choices they make as a person. The education they pursued, the training they sought, the hours they put in. I&rsquom grateful for the acknowledgement of the choices I&rsquove made and I&rsquom also grateful to have lived at a moment in our society where choice exist because, as women and as girls, things can happen to our bodies that are not our choice.&rdquo

Ahead &mdash from Busy Phillips to Nicki Minaj, Ashley Judd to Stevie Knicks &mdash here are some of the real celebrities (who we totally love) who are changing the conversation surrounding abortion and inspiring vigorous action. (And we love that too!)

Hello, Golden Globes Red Carpet — We Missed You

OK, it was mostly virtual. But watching stars dress up again was actually a whole lot of fun.

Forget the Zoom shirt welcome to the Zoom evening gown. Also the Zoom tux.

If the Golden Globes red carpet wasn’t exactly the red carpet we were used to, nor was it the dressed-down stars-in-their-jammies-pretending-to-be-just-like-us reveal that marked the celebrity-packed fund-raisers of the pandemic past. Instead, the first of the big award shows of 2021 gave us the hitherto before unimagined … home red carpet.

Turns out you can only keep the Hollywood-fashion industrial complex down for so long. But this time, the sight of stars in their finery while in social isolation seemed less like the mercenary marketing play of old, though there was obviously some of that. (Witness the deluge of next-morning emails that landed from fashion, jewelry — and hair care! — brands touting their moments.) Instead, it was more like a statement of belief in a new day and an understanding of the value of vicarious escapism.

The red carpet as a phenomenon has had an increasingly bad name. First, thanks to the revelations around Harvey Weinstein and the abuse of power in Hollywood, symbolized in part by the objectification of women-in-gowns. And second, because of what seemed the cynical relationship between brands and celebrities, in which the latter (and their agents, managers and stylists) increasingly auctioned their appearances to the highest bidder, rather than the one whose taste they most admired.

But the pandemic has provided something of a reset, washing away some of the worst excesses of the manufactured Hollywood runway and allowing the pure pleasure of dressing up to bubble through. It was, after all, the reason everyone loved to watch those entrances in the first place.

As Laverne Cox said during the preshow segment as she posed in what she called “a standing Zoom,” the better to show off her regal red gown by Thai Nguyen, “we should have a moment.” And if not now, when? So she, and the rest of the nominees and presenters, proceeded to provide one.

Even if, as Elle Fanning acknowledged while channeling the silver screen of old in ice blue bias-draped Gucci, the back crisscrossed by jeweled straps, it existed only for the walk from kitchen to living room.

Maybe because it existed only for the walk from kitchen to living room. That’s what made it so effective made it seem human, rather than calculated. It was the sight of Regina King’s dog, curled up very happily in its bed that gave her “entrance” in a futuristic silver-and-black Louis Vuitton dress an added fillip of emotion. Or the Bernie Sanders cutout visible behind Cynthia Nixon’s head as she sat patiently surrounded by family.

There were holdouts, of course: Jason Sudeikis in a tie-dye hoodie Bill Murray in what looked like a golfing shirt. But even Jodie Foster, curled up with her wife and dog in a pair of black and white silk Prada pajamas, was channeling more of a Stork Club vibe than brushing-my-teeth-for-bed.

Also in Prada: Carey Mulligan, beaming in from a hotel in London where, nevertheless, she had put on high heels “for the first time in about eight months” to go with her duchesse satin gown, and Julia Garner, looking very Lysistrata luxe in ivory and black goddess drapes.

The mermaid gown was back, but in an entirely new way, thanks to Viola Davis and her magenta-gold-and-blue African print Lavie by CK number. So was va-va-voom power, in the form of a glinting one-shoulder Saint Laurent on Lily Collins, with a cutout at the hip and Andra Day’s halter-neck ivory Chanel. So was the LBD — see Shira Haas in strapless mini Chanel with a chiffon train, Amy Poehler in sequined Moschino and Tina Fey in a Versace tuxedo dress (the first of three outfits she and Ms. Poehler each wore as hosts).

And so was the fairy tale frock, on Kaley Cuoco in strapless silver and Amanda Seyfried in coral with a stole of flowers shrouding her shoulders, both by Oscar de la Renta also Rosamund Pike in a ruby tulle Molly Goddard confection.

Instead of clichés, such styles suddenly seemed like long-lost old friends. Hey! So nice to see you again.

Indeed, red was the color of the night — also seen on Salma Hayek Pinault in Alexander McQueen and Maria Bakalova in princess-style Giorgio Armani (well, if anyone just came to the ball, she did) — perhaps in a subconscious nod to the absent carpet itself. If you can’t walk it, wear it.

Or go over the rainbow. Green came through in Anya Taylor-Joy’s plunging emerald Dior slither and Cynthia Erivo’s sculpted lime Valentino, straight from the January couture runway. Yellow, courtesy of Dan Levy’s bright lemon Valentino suit with gold sequin turtleneck and Jamie Lee Curtis’s plunging sunshine silk. And purple, in Angela Bassett’s befeathered high-slit Dolce & Gabbana.

It was Jane Fonda, however, receiving her Cecil B. DeMille award with a powerful speech about change, who summed up the night with a white trouser suit straight from her closet, a nod to her decision in 2019 to stop buying new clothes and, given the meaning of the white pantsuit in current political culture, her own history as an activist. She looked elegant while she looked to the future.

And thus the human desire to get dressed up, once again on display despite everything, was one of the biggest winners of the night.

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler address Golden Globes controversy in opening

No matter how far apart they may be, nothing can keep us from laughing along with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!

The former "Saturday Night Live" castmates, friends and frequent comedy duo hosted the 78th Annual Golden Globes awards Sunday night for the fourth time, but this was the first time they were doing it from opposite coasts: Poehler in the Beverly Hilton in California, and Fey in the Rainbow Room in New York City.

And for those who wondered: Yep, they were funny!

While standing in front of a sparse, masked audience of well-dressed first responders and essential workers, both comedians launched into some shtick. Fey welcomed everyone to New York, "where indoor dining and outdoor muggings are back," while Poehler said this was "the 78th annual Hunger Games" before correcting herself.

"It's going to be smooth sailing," said Poehler, as Fey's arm reached off-screen to stroke her hair, an awkwardly obvious setup that was funnier for being so ham-handed.

"You won't even notice," said Fey.

But the laughs weren't all sight gags the organization behind the Globes — the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — got a real roasting. The HFPA, which has fewer than 100 members, has come under fire in the past few days for having absolutely no Black members, something the comedians made sure to mention.

"Everyone is understandably upset at the HFPA and their choices," said Poehler. "A lot of flashy garbage got nominated, but that happens."

Noted Fey, "There's no Black members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. I realize HFPA maybe you didn't get the memo, because your workplace is the back booth of a French McDonald's, but you gotta change that."

Of course, the real focus of the opening segment was to alert their audiences — in the room and on the other side of the TV screen — about what's been nominated. Poehler introduced us to the invented word "pluvies," plays that were turned into movies you watched on TV, and they ran through a few of the titles up for awards during the evening.

"Nomadland," Fey noted, was a "movie where Frances McDormand plays a lady who travels across the desert in her van and poops in a bucket. My kids were like, 'Can we do that for spring break? Could we do anything?'"

"The Trial of the Chicago 7," Poehler thought was great, though not as good as "Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow."

"The thing I love about Aaron Sorkin's writing is he can have seven men talking but it feels like a hundred men talking," quipped Fey.

"'The Undoing' was a sexy and dramatic mystery where Nicole Kidman's coat is suspected of murdering a wig," said Poehler.

Several times during the discussion of the films, the camera cut away to show nominees like Kidman, with husband Keith Urban and their kids, all dressed up and on their sofa for the night.

After summarizing "Soul's" twist in which a Black man's soul gets knocked into a cat, Fey also noted that it worked for the HFPA because they do have five feline members.

It's hard to imagine anyone being quite this pointed about the Oscars, during the actual award ceremony itself, but the questions being raised about the HFPA do seem relevant — and worthy of some jabs.

"Could this whole night have been an email?" Fey wondered at the end of the opening. The answer is, of course, "yes." But then we'd miss so many great, unscripted, bizarro moments (like first winner of the night Daniel Kaluuya's microphone being off for his acceptance speech).

Celebrate the 2020 Golden Globe Awards With LaQuan Smith's Official Moet & Chandon Cocktail


Moet & Chandon is back as the official champagne of the Golden Globe Awards and the premium brand has tapped acclaimed designer LaQuan Smith to collaborate on the 2020 official cocktail. We have all the details on how you can mix up this fancy cocktail during your Golden Globes happy hour.

Inspired by one of his favorite moments of any big night, Smith captures the colloquial "golden hour" atmosphere of ideal lighting and glamour in The Moet Golden Hour cocktail. Made with fresh pineapple juice, pink grapefruit-infused vodka and garnished with smoked salt, The Moet Golden Hour is the perfect sip to toast the 77th Golden Globes throughout the whole ceremony.

Smith's cocktail combines Moet & Chandon Imperial Brut with the pink grapefruit in the Belvedere vodka to bring out the fresh citrus character of the champagne while the fresh pineapple juice plays beautifully with the smoky, salty notes of the garnish to create a fresh flavor with rich texture.

For the first year ever, viewers can also purchase a limited edition Moet & Chandon Champagne box through Giftagram to help craft the Moet Golden Hour cocktail at home. The box is on sale now through the 2020 Golden Globe awards on January 7, and will include a 750mL bottle of Moet Imperial Brut, two Moet Mini sippers and the Moet Golden Hour recipe card.

Like any Zoom call, there were tech issues

It’s no small feat to put on a live award show, with celebrities streaming in from all over the world, co-hosts located across the country and an audience that, by this point, has chronic Zoom exhaustion. With that in mind, there were moments of the Globes broadcast that were impressive, like the coordinated monologue that put Fey and Poehler side-by-side and at one point, seemingly had Fey reach across the cross-country divide.

But there were more than a few tech issues, including sound glitches, freezing and delays—the most cringeworthy of which was the moment Daniel Kaluuya, who won a best supporting actor trophy for Judas and the Black Messiah, nearly didn’t get to make his acceptance speech because his audio wasn’t connecting.

What A-listers Brad Pitt and Renee Zellweger ate at the Oscars this year

We've all looked at the photos of Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio and Florence Pugh at the Oscars, and we can't get enough of the Academy Awards this year. The star-studded ceremony, held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on 9 February, saw celebrities dine on a mouth-watering selection of dishes. So the real question is: what foods and drinks did the Hollywood stars enjoy at the 2020 Oscars?

There's arguably no better place to start than with the drinks! After all, the celebrities deserve a celebratory drink or two to toast the winners of the evening and globally acclaimed bartender Charles Joy ensured they had plenty of delicious options to choose from. Sharing his recipes ahead of the night, Charles revealed there would be three Tequila Don Julio signature cocktails: 'The Nominees' Negroni', 'The Hollywood Highball' and 'When You Have Passion&hellip', the latter a fruity concoction made up of tequila, passion fruit liqueur and ginger juice. There was 12,000 speciality cocktails, 1,000 individually manicured orange peels and 3,600 hand-peeled and marinated tomatoes. So to say the evening takes a lot of meticulous planning would be an understatement!

Onto the food, Austrian-American Chef Wolfgang Puck returned for the 26th year to cater for the event alongside his son, chef Byron Puck. Following on from the 2020 Golden Globes, which featured a fully plant-based menu, the pair created a delicious menu made up of 70 percent vegan dishes. "Vegetables are really my thing. I grew up on a farm, we had meat once a week," Wolfgang told E!'s Daily Pop.

Some of the dishes on the predominantly plant-based menu included apple and vegetable spring rolls and homemade tofu. However, we were most excited about the themed foods, with Wolfgang bringing back his iconic smoked salmon Oscar statues, while 6,000 chocolate Oscar statues will allow sweet-lovers the chance to celebrate the occasion. Not only were the dishes mouth-watering but they were also stunning, and Wolfgang explained it was important to find the balance between the two. "The look is always important. You know, that's why we put make-up on. But I think at the end, it has to taste delicious," he said.
