What I love most about the Golden Globes is that it everyone is seated at tables and you get a good glimpse of the seating arrangement when they do audience shots. And the celebrities don’t seem to always realize this so that when they do a shot of a nominee smiling and looking gracious, they also get the celebrity behind them eye rolling or making a dismissive hand gesture to their date. Awesome.
It is also a good way to get a look at people’s partners, especially the non-famewhorey ones (that means the ones that aren’t dating George Clooney.) This is how I suddenly developed a crush on Neil Patrick Harris‘ boyfriend David Burtka last night.
I’ve seen David plenty of times and I love, love LOVE that they are out and go to social events and pose together and that NPH calls him his “better half” on red carpet interviews. But last night David was looking crazy good. I wasn’t even paying attention to NPH but going damn he’s hot!! to Sarah each time the camera cut to them (they had good seats by someone who I can’t recall now, but was on frequently.)
Of course I can’t talk about award show Arm Candy without mentioning my boy Joshua Jackson. He dates a fashion plate and chronic Envelope-Opening-Attendee Diane Kruger so he’s in a lot more red carpet pics now than he ever used to be. And he’s the nicest accessory she’s got going for her, that’s for damn sure.
For the females I go with Luciana Damon, Matty’s missus. She’s lovely and non-famewhorey and she spent the whole night with him cuddling her. It was very sweet and always nice to see a Hollywood couple that seem to genuinely, you know love one another and enjoy each other’s company.
Honorable mention to Mr. Julianna Margulies who is very handsome and seems adored by her, but got totally overshadowed for me by the “Doug/Carol” kiss she got from George when she went up to get her award.
