Mere minutes after the curtain came down on the 72nd Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, celebrities began streaming into a post-show bash staged by Weinstein Co. and Netflix in a massive tent beside the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Amy Adams arrived, Darren Le Gallo at her side, best-actress award in hand. Christoph Waltz, her “Big Eyes” co-star, had called Adams “extraordinary” at Audi’s pre-Golden Globes party. “See, I told you,” he said with a smile as he joined her.
Jake Gyllenhaal and 50 Cent caused quite the commotion on entering, as a multitude of photographers and guests gathered around, hoisting cameras for a few quick shots.
Some stars stood and mingled, while others relaxed on sofas placed amid the trees, drinks and dessert bars, champagne towers and buckets of Fiji Water. And for those who needed a quick touch-up, hair stylists and make-up artists were at the ready at booths by Salon HG of Westlake Village and Laura Mercier.
Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford shared one of the cozy sofa clusters on the party’s perimeter. “It’s been a good year for women,” Mirren said, noting that she especially liked hearing Adams speak of the importance of strong female role models for her daughter.
To those who approached, Bill Murray delivered a friendly, “Hi, I’m Bill.”
Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett and a very glamorous Kate Hudson joined Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos, seated on a sofa with Nicole Avant. Before the evening ended, Harvey Weinstein could be spotted with pop superstars Taylor Swift and Lorde, while Jennifer Lopez and Rita Ora spent a moment with designer Georgina Chapman, Weinstein’s other half.
Among other partygoers bearing trophies were Ruth Wilson of “The Affair,” best actress in a TV drama; Maggie Gyllenhaal of “The Honorable Woman,” best actress in a TV miniseries; Jeffrey Tambor of “Transparent,” best actor in a TV comedy; and Bonnie Arnold, co-president at DreamWorks Animation and writer/director/producer Dean DeBlois of “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” having won for best animated feature film.
Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Katie Holmes, Rosamund Pike, Dominic West and Salma Hayek were among others in the starry crowd.
