While it was reported that Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander had split after nine months last year, they looked the picture of romance at the Golden Globes when they made their awards-show debut as a couple on Sunday evening.

The handsome pair were caught on camera sitting side-by-side happily when Michael was named as a nominee for best performance by an actor in a motion picture-drama for his role in Steve Jobs.

Alicia turned to the smiling actor and gave him a loving and supportive rub on the back as they both awaited the announcement of the winner. When the accolade was presented to Leonardo DiCaprio, they were shoulder-to-shoulder as they listened to the winning speech.

The duo – who met on the set of The Light Between The Oceans in 2014 – had plenty to smile about at the awards ceremony. Michael, 38, was up for an award while Alicia was a double nominee for best actress and best supporting actress in The Danish Girl and Ex-Machina respectively.

Before taking their seats inside, Michael spoke fondly about his girlfriend's impressive year, telling Entertainment Tonight that he is "very proud" of her.


For their special evening out, the Swedish actress wore a pleated white column Louis Vuitton dress with a ruffle trim around the neck. German-Irish Michael was dapper in a Tom Ford for the Green Carpet Challenge tuxedo and Chopard watch.

Alicia, 26, missed out on her trophies to Brie Larson for Room and Kate Winslet for her work in Steve Jobs, in which she starred opposite Michael.

Kate brought some girl power to the Globes with an emotional acceptance speech praising her fellow nominees.

"I just want to say, what an incredible year for women in film, and I mean, these categories are so crowded and crammed with incredible skill and integrity and I feel prouder than ever this year to be included I really truly do," she said.
