In a brilliant moment caught on camera, Selena can be spotted sharing what one hopes was some very juicy gossip with the Mastermind singer, whose jaw dropped as the Only Murders in the Building star whispered to her at their table. Lip reading fans have speculated that Selena is telling Taylor that she asked for a photo with Wonka star Timothée Chalamet, and his partner Kylie Jenner said no. Eek!

Jennifer Lawrence’s moment to camera 

While waiting to find out if she won a Golden Globe for her role in No Hard Feelings, Jennifer mouthed to the camera, 'If I don’t win, I’m leaving.' The accolade ended up going to Emma Stone for Poor Things, but there were 'no hard feelings' from JLaw in the end!

Brie was overwhelmed to meet Jennifer Lopez during an interview, telling her that her role in Selena was why the Lessons in Chemistry star wanted to become an actress herself. She said: "You mean so much to me. I’m such a huge fan… you’ve always meant so much to me. This has always been a dream of mine, your work ethic is so important." She then turned and celebrated with her mom, adorable!

Taylor unamused by Jo Koy’s joke 

While presenting, Jo joked: "The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? At the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift." The camera then panned to the Blank Space singer, who looked unimpressed while taking a long swig of her champagne. Fair enough, Tay!

Pedro was all smiles despite sporting a black sling with his red carpet style. While it would make sense to wonder whether the Last of Us actor gained the injury while filming one of his many projects, from The Mandalorian to Fantastic Four, the star told reporters that he "fell". Ouch!

Cillian Murphy’s wife leaves lipstick mark

After winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor, Cillian’s wife Yvonne McGuinness gave him a big kiss on the cheek, then can be seen realising that she’d left a lipstick mark and giving his cheek - and even the tip of his nose - a quick wipe before he went onstage to accept the award. Aw! Taking to X to discuss, one fan wrote: "Cillian Murphy giving his golden globes speech with lipstick all over his face from his wife kissing him? Neeeed a real lover boy like that."

Ryan and Hannah are set to co-star together in Fall Guy, and clearly were enjoying catching up with one another while chatting at the awards, sharing a hug. 

When Hannah went to leave, she appeared to struggle with the train of her dress, only for Ryan to swiftly help her. Sharing the clip, one fan wrote on Twitter: "Literal crumbs but Hannah Waddingham and Ryan Gosling hugging ahead of their promo tour for #FallGuy is literally everything to me."

Christopher Nolan’s tribute to Heath Ledger

Oppenheimer director Christopher spoke about accepting a Golden Globe for the late Dark Knight star posthumously back in 2009, telling the audience: "Thank you. The only time I’ve ever been on this stage before accepting one of these on behalf of our dear friend Heath Ledger and that was complicated and challenging for me… In the middle of speaking, I glanced up and Robert Downey Jr caught my eye, and gave me a look of love and support – the same look he’s giving me now." 

He continued: "I thought it’d be simpler accepting for myself but, as I stand here, I realise I can only accept this on behalf of people."

Kristin Wiig and Will Ferrell bring the house down with gag

If there's one thing we know about Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell…it's that they wouldn't miss an opportunity to make us laugh! 

While attempting to announce the nominees, a jaunty song started to play, causing the pair to give up attempting to speak and dance along. Explaining the moment, Will said: "Guys this song does something to us as you can see," with Kristin adding: "It always has, for decades." 

Will shouted: "Whoever put on the show tonight knows it," to which Kristen continued: "They wanted us to come out here and make a bunch of jokes and we said no… They know just what to do to get what they wanted. Play our favorite song. We look ridiculous." 

"We said no!" Will continued: "We want to be serious tonight, why? Because it’s a serious night." Referencing the boycott of the Golden Globes back in 2021, he added: "The Golden Globes have NOT changed!"
