Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are sure to steam things up at Monday night’s Golden Globes, as will “Desperate Housewife” Teri Hatcher as she makes her first official public appearance with her new beau, Steven Kay.
But will double Golden Globe nominee Leonardo DiCaprio bring girlfriend Bar Refaeli, or will he opt to bring his mom?
One thing is for sure: there is no bigger stage to make an appearance than the Golden Globes.
The nominees were out in full force over the weekend as the excitement mounted over Monday night’s big event.
Alec Baldwin joined last year’s Best Actress winner Virginia Madsen and guest of honor Penélope Cruz, who is nominated for Best Actress, at L.A. Confidential’s Globe party.
“I’ve been doing this since I was 15,” Cruz confessed. “So all of this that is happening this month is new to me, and I’m enjoying it.”
Over at the British Academy of Film and Television tea party, Best Actress nominees Toni Collette and Kate Winslet were celebrating as well.
“Of course I’m nervous, I’m only human,” Kate said, as she confessed a little recognition for her life altering role in “Little Children” would be nice.
“I turned to my husband, and I said, ‘I think I handled that well, I think I was quite normal, wasn't I, while I was making the movie?’” Kate revealed. “And he said, ‘I'm sorry, I don't even know who you are anymore.’”
More than 50 stars are set to present at the Globes, and now “Extra” has learned you can add the Governator to the list!
Arnold Schwarzenegger will present the night’s final award.
But the real question is if his appearance will present a little political drama, after Cecil B. DeMille honoree Warren Beatty made no secret of his opposing politics during Schwarzenegger’s re-election.
After the show, the stars will let it all hang out at the InStyle magazine party.
The magazine’s Kelly Austin gave us a glimpse of the final preparations for what she called the biggest A-list celebration.
“George Clooney, Leo Dicaprio, Reese Witherspoon, J Lo, Beyoncé… everyone,” she said of the stars attending. “It’s just going to be pure decadence and just lots of food, lots of drinks and lots of fun.”
