Golden Globes 2023: Winners, best moments and highlights
Live coverage has ended.
The final award of the night — best motion picture, drama — went to Steven Spielberg's semi-autobiographical film "The Fabelmans."
The film documents a Jewish family, based on Spielberg's own, and the beginning of his love of moviemaking. Spielberg recalled a bit of the beginning of his career in his speech.
"I was John Cassavetes' PA on one of his movies ... and that's why I treat my PAs so kindly, because I know what it feels like," he said, referring to production assistants.
He thanked his cast and crew and joked about why he wanted to keep his acceptance speech short.
"My office is on the Universal lot, and I want to stay on the Universal lot," he said. "I don't want to be the reason this goes too far into the 11:30 p.m. news in New York City."
“The Banshees of Inisherin” won the award for best picture for a musical or comedy.
It was the most nominated film at the Golden Globes, with eight nods.
"I can't believe it. It was an honor to be nominated against so many brilliant films this year so many new friends," writer, director and producer Martin McDonagh said.
“House of the Dragon” has won the Golden Globe for best television drama series.
Executive producer Miguel Sapochnik accepted the award.
“Thank you very much. This is amazing," he said.
Sapochnik praised "Severance," which was also nominated in the category along with "Ozark."
"If I could have made 'House of the Dragon' like 'Severance' I would have, but would have been a bit weird," he said.
HFPA President Helen Hoehne thanked the industry for its support in celebrating the Globes' 80th anniversary.
Hoehne also alluded to the changes the HFPA has made to improve the diversity of its membership:
“We commit to continue strengthening our partnership with Hollywood and with the worldwide fans who celebrate the best on film and television," she said. "We will continue to support groups that amplify a variety of voices and continue to add representation to our organization from around the world as we did this past year."
Daysia Tolentino and Kalhan Rosenblatt
"Abbott Elementary" won the award for best television series, musical or comedy.
"I created this show because I love comedy. There are so many people in this room who are the reason why I'm here," show creator and star Quinta Brunson said in her acceptance speech.
"Abbott Elementary" earned the most nominations of any television show, five. Brunson and Tyler James Williams won awards for best actress in a TV series, musical or comedy and for best supporting actor in a TV series, respectively.
"During a very tough time in this country, I’m so grateful 'Abbott Elementary' can make people laugh," Brunson said.
She also thanked comedians Henry Winkler and Seth Rogen and gave a shoutout to Brad Pitt.
Kevin Costner won for best performance by an actor in a drama television series for his role as rancher John Dutton in "Yellowstone."
Costner was not able to attend because of weather and flooding, presenter Regina Hall said.
Eddie Murphy made a joke about the Oscars slap incident as he accepted the Golden Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille Award honoring lifetime achievement.
“I want to let you know that there is a definitive blueprint that you can follow to achieve success, prosperity, longevity and peace of mind," Murphy said. “Pay your taxes, mind your business and keep’s Will Smith’s wife name out [your] mouth.”
Murphy was referring to the shocking moment during the Academy Awards last year when Smith hit Chris Rock after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Will Smith later apologized.
Before he cracked the joke, Murphy said he was thankful for the award.
“This is a long time in the making, and I appreciate it,” he said.
Evan Peters took home the award for best actor in a limited series in the Netflix series "Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story." It was Peters' first nomination and first win.
Peters acknowledged Netflix, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Ryan Murphy in his acceptance speech. He also thanked viewers who tuned into the series.
"And last, but most importantly, I want to thank everyone out there who watched the show," he said. "It was a difficult one to make, a difficult one to watch, but I sincerely hope some good came out of it.”
Peters did not acknowledge the backlash surrounding the show, which received criticism from Dahmer's real-life living victims and their families, who said watching it was retraumatizing.
Mike White, the creator of HBO's "White Lotus," won for best limited series made for TV.
Accepting the award, White confessed he was “too drunk, because there was no food."
In joking about the show's spoilers, he said, “I know you all passed, you all passed on this show."
On a more serious and loving note, White praised his cast and crew for helping him create a successful show. "I would take a bullet for you guys," he said. "Not on the heart but maybe on the foot."
"It’s very gratifying to have this moment.”
Jennifer Coolidge won her first Golden Globe for her role as the needy heiress Tanya on "The White Lotus."
But the other benefit of being the fan favorite of the show?
“My neighbors are speaking to me," she said in her acceptance speech. “I was never invited to one party, and now everyone is inviting me!”
Coolidge, who won an Emmy for the role last year, also thanked the show's creator, Mike White.
"Even if this is the end because you did kill me off, you changed my life," she joked, referring to her character's death at the end of season two.
“I had such big dreams and expectations as a younger person, but what happened is they sort of fizzle," she said. "I thought it was gonna be queen of Monaco even though someone else did it."
Here's to hoping Coolidge and "The White Lotus" cast get to party together tonight with the iconic theme song playing in the background.
Amanda Seyfried won for best performance by an actress, limited series, anthology series or a motion picture made for television, for her role as Elizabeth Holmes in “The Dropout.”
Seyfried wasn't in attendance to accept the award.
Seyfried also won an Emmy for her portrayal of Holmes, the Theranos founder and CEO.
Paul Walter Hauser won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a limited series for his role as a suspected killer in "Black Bird."
It's Hauser's first nomination and win. He gave a shoutout to his late co-star Ray Liotta in his acceptance speech.
Steven Spielberg won the Golden Globe for best director — motion picture for "The Fabelmans." It is his 20th nomination and his third win.
"I always say that if I prepare something, it's gonna jinx it, so I never prepare anything," he said in his acceptance speech.
Spielberg acknowledged his decades of success in the industry but confessed that it took the pandemic and encouragement from his wife to make the film a reality. “Everybody sees me as a success story. ... I’ve been hiding from this story since I was 17 years old."
Chloe Flower, the pianist at tonight's Golden Globes, got a shoutout from host Jerrod Carmichael during the show.
Flower, who is also a composer and producer, performed at the 2019 Grammy Awards with Cardi B.
Martin McDonagh accepted the award for best screenplay — motion picture for "Banshees of Inisherin," a tale of two friends who have a falling-out on a remote island in Ireland in 1923.
McDonagh joked that he wrote the film for the film's two stars, who happen to be a donkey and a horse. He immediately clarified that he was joking and that he wrote the screenplay for the film's human stars, Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.
He told the crowd that Farrell's and Gleeson's performances blew him out of the water.
“Argentina, 1985,” a historical drama about the 1985 Trial of the Juntas, took home the award for best picture in a non-English language.
“I want to share this with all of the people who, since the dictatorship, has been fighting to build a better democracy in Argentina,” writer, director and producer Santiago Mitre said in his acceptance speech, before it was quickly drowned out by music.
“I think democracy … is [something] we need to keep on fighting for.”
Television writer and mega-producer Ryan Murphy accepted the honorary Carol Burnett Award, dedicating his speech to the LGBTQ actors who shaped his career.
At the start of his speech, Murphy, who is gay, asked the audience to give a standing ovation to “Pose” star Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, who last year became the first transgender actor to win a Golden Globe. He also lauded actors Billy Porter, who presented Murphy with the award, Matt Bomer and Jeremy Pope, all of whom he has worked with throughout his 25 years in Hollywood.
Murphy, 57, is perhaps best known for co-creating “Glee,” “Pose” and the “American Horror Story” franchise.
“I’ve dedicated most of my lifetime achievement speech here tonight to these actors I’ve worked with to make a point of hope and progress,” Murphy said. “When I was a young person at home in the seventies watching ‘The Carol Burnett Show,’ I never, ever saw a person like me getting an award or even being a character on a TV show."
Murphy added that he hopes the LGBTQ actors and characters in his work have been "examples of possibility" for queer youths watching at home.
“For 25 years that’s all I’ve ever tried to do here in Hollywood," he said. "My mission was to take the invisible, the unloved and make them the heroes I longed to see but never did in pop culture.”
The lifetime achievement award is the equivalent of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, a Golden Globes award typically given to actors and directors for unprecedented contributions to the television industry.
Previous honorees include Burnett, Ellen DeGeneres and Norman Lear.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a virtual appearance at Tuesday's Globes.
Actor Sean Penn spoke before Zelenskyy, saying: "From the otherworldly courage of young Iranians rising up to the ever-persevering women’s movement of Afghanistan, we are reminded that freedom to dream is not a human luxury but rather a human need."
Zelenskyy thanked supporters and said there would be no "third world war" after the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
"We will make it together with a free world, and I hope that all of you will be with us on the victorious day — the day of our victory,” he said.
Cate Blanchett took home the Golden Globe for best actress in a motion picture — drama for her role as a world-famous composer-conductor in “Tár."
Blanchett, 53, was not present to accept her award.
Carmichael joked about Will Smith's slapping Chris Rock, saying the Globes presented Smith with the "Rock Hudson award for best portrayal of masculinity" on television.
The audience did not seem amused. Even Carmichael appeared slightly hesitant, anticipating the tepid reaction, as he rushed out the words.
Jerrod Carmichael joked with Steven Spielberg about his semi-autobiographical film "The Fabelmans," which tells the tale of a Jewish family, saying it "changed Kanye [West's] mind."
In recent months, West, who now goes by Ye, has been criticized for making a slew of anti-Semitic remarks.
"I saw it with Kanye, and it changed everything for him. ... You changed Kanye's mind," Carmichael joked.
The Beverly Hills Hotel was not laughing earlier tonight at host Jerrod Carmichael's joke about Tom Cruise and Scientology.
Carmichael walked out after a commercial break with three trophies, joking that they were the awards Cruise returned after the HFPA's diversity controversy.
"I'm just the host or whatever, but I have a pitch," Carmichael said. "I think maybe we take these three things and exchange them for the safe return of Shelly Miscavige."
Miscavige is the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige. The Tampa Bay Times reported last month that authorities were unable to locate David Miscavige to serve legal documents in a lawsuit.
In November, actor Leah Remini, a former Scientologist, also expressed concern about Shelly Miscavige's whereabouts.
Remini said she hadn't seen Shelly Miscavige in years, but Los Angeles police said in a news release its detectives made contact with her in 2014 in response to Remini's missing person request.
Julia Garner took home the award for best actress in a limited series, anthology series or television motion picture for her performance as Ruth Langmore in the Netflix series "Ozark."
"I'm so grateful to be here with all of you," she said as she accepted her award. "Playing Ruth for the last few years has been the greatest gift in my life."
Before she was played off, she described how the "Ozark" cast and crew have become her family.
Zendaya won the Globe — her first — for best actress in drama television series for her role in HBO Max's hit show "Euphoria."
The Emmy-winning actor, 26, was not present to accept the award.
Austin Butler accepted the Golden Globe for best performance by an actor in a motion picture — drama for his role in the film "Elvis."
"Elvis Presley ... you were an icon and a rebel and I love you so much," he said.
He also thanked director Baz Luhrmann.
"I owe this to a bold, visionary filmmaker who allowed me the experience to take risks, and I always knew I would be supported, he said.
Guillermo Del Toro is having a great night.
The Mexican filmmaker accepted the award for best animated motion picture for his reinterpretation of the classic tale “Pinocchio,” which used stop-motion animation.
After having expressed his gratitude for the win, he quipped how he's happy to be back in person with those in the room.
“Some of us are drunk," he joked.
He also emphasized how "animation is cinema." It's not just movies for kids, he said; "it's a medium."
Del Toro described “Pinocchio" as a "tale about love and belonging."
The film made Netflix the first streaming service to win a Golden Globe in that category.
Colin Farrell won for best actor in a musical or comedy film for his role in “The Banshees of Inisherin.”
“I never expect a film to work," Farrell said in his acceptance speech. "And when they do, it’s shocking to me, and I’m so horrified by what's happened."
He thanked his co-star, Brendan Gleeson, saying: "I just love you so much. I love you so much. I get to cohabitate this creative space with you every day”
He also gave a shoutout to one of his non-nominated co-stars: Jenny the Donkey.

Michelle Yeoh has won the Golden Globe for best actress in a motion picture — comedy or musical.
Yeoh took home the award Tuesday for her starring role in the psychedelic comedy drama “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”
“Whew! OK. I’m just gonna stand here and take this all in," she said. "Forty years, not letting go of this. So just quickly, thank you Hollywood Foreign Press for giving me this honor. It’s been an amazing journey and incredible fight to be here today, but I think it’s worth it."
Yeoh is the second Asian actor to win in the category, the first being Awkwafina in 2020 for “The Farewell.”
Yeoh beat out Lesley Manville for “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris,” Margot Robbie for “Babylon,” Anya Taylor-Joy for “The Menu” and Emma Thompson for “Good Luck to You, Leo Grande.”
In her speech, she reflected on her career.
“As time went by — I turned 60 last year — and I think all of you women understand this as the days, years, numbers get bigger, the opportunities get smaller, as well," she said. “Then along came the best gift: 'Everything, Everywhere All at Once.'"

The Navy is likely not too pleased to hear Jerrod Carmichael say, "Rihanna, take all the time you want on that album." He admitted that line might get him in trouble.
No word on a release date for R9, although fans have been begging for a new Rihanna album for nearly seven years.
Quinta Brunson took home the Golden Globe for best actress in a TV series, musical or comedy, for her role in “Abbott Elementary.”
"Thank you for believing in this show about a group of teachers in Philadelphia," she said, thanking those who greenlit the show. "It resonated with the world in a way that I could think of — well, but let’s be real, I did imagine it that’s whyI sold it to you."
Basically, tonight truly is a win for Janine x Gregory shippers.
Twitter users appeared impressed with Jerrod Carmichael's remarks about the criticism the Hollywood Foreign Press Association got over its lack of diversity.
Some praised Carmichael for discussing the Golden Globes' problems so frankly.
"Jerrod Carmichael destroying the Hollywood Foreign Press while hosting their show gave me life," wrote one Twitter user.
Users were also obsessed with the way Carmichael laid down the law and hushed the crowd.
"Jerrod Carmichael telling the audience to shut up is everything," a Twitter user wrote.
Jeremy Allen White won a Golden Globe for his performance as Carmy in Fx's "The Bear," a fast-paced immersion in the food service industry and poignant portrait of life after the loss of a loved one.
"Thank you," he said. "You’re all legends, it’s an honor just to have my name near yours truly. I love 'The Bear.'”
“Naatu Naatu” from “RRR" won the Golden Globe for best original song, a big win in a stacked category.
The Indian film has a huge following, but some might consider it a surprise win considering the competition. Some of the world’s biggest stars — Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Rihanna — were nominated in the category.
But M.M. Keeravani, who accepted the award on behalf of the three songwriters, shared the win with the rest of his "RRR" team.
"It's been an age-old practice to say this award actually belongs to someone else," Keervani said. "I was planning not to say to those words when I get an award like this, but I'm sorry to say that I'm going to repeat the tradition, because I mean my words."
"Babylon" nabbed the Golden Globe for best original score in a motion picture. The Damien Chazelle film is about the decadence and absurdity of Hollywood, old and new. Composer Justin Hurwitz accepted the award.
"I'm very grateful to the public schools I went to that had music classes," Hurwitz said.
He added that "it’s so important to spread opportunity around.”
Tyler James Williams claims his first Gold Globe for his portrayal of a public school educator in "Abbott Elementary."
"I pray this is a win for Gregory Eddie and for his story and stories like his, that we understand his story is just as important as all the other stories that have to be told out here," he said.
"White Lotus" star Jennifer Coolidge was presenting on the live broadcast when she accidentally called the Globes the Oscars.
"There is no way I'm going to make it all the way from behind the podium without breaking my skull," she joked.
Jerrod Carmichael's outfit change captivated audiences as he told the crowd to "shut up" before introducing Jennifer Coolidge. Great way to hush a crowd!
Angela Bassett won her second Globe for her supporting role as Queen Ramonda in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever." She also is the first to receive an acting nomination and a Globe for Marvel in the category.
The last time Bassett won a Golden Globe was in 1994, for her role as Tina Turner in "What's Love Got to Do With It." In her acceptance speech, Bassett paid tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who played T'Challa alongside her in "Black Panther."
"We embarked on this journey together with love," Bassett said about her experience filming with the movie's cast and crew. "We mourned. We loved. We healed — and we were surrounded every day by the light and spirit of Chadwick Boseman."
Bassett also called the "Black Panther" movies historic and acknowledged the films as part of Boseman's legacy "that he helped to lead us to."
"We showed the world what Black unity, leadership and love looks like beyond, behind and in front of the camera."
Host and comedian Jerrod Carmichael walked in to the sound of Chloe Flower's piano to a stage and a rowdy crowd.
He told everyone to "be a little quiet here” and welcomed them to the 80th edition of the Golden Globes.
"I'm here because I'm Black," he said in reference to last year's controversy. The award show did not air on NBC last year because the Hollywood Press Association "did not have a single Black member until George Floyd died," Carmichael said.
He said he was having tea at home when he got the phone call to host the Golden Globes. "I was invited to be the Black face of a white organization."
After he joked about taking the gig for $500,000 without knowing the changes the organization has made, Carmichael said he took the job because he wanted to be in a room of people he admires.
"This industry deserves nights like these."

Ke Huy Quan has won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a motion picture.
The “Everything Everywhere All At Once” actor took home the award Tuesday for his portrayal of doting husband and laundromat owner Waymond Wang.
“I was raised to never forget where I came from and always remember who gave me my first opportunity," he said. "I’m so happy to see Stephen Spielberg here tonight. Stephen thank you. When I started my career as a child actor in 'Indiana Jones' … I started to wonder if that was it, if that was just luck."
Quan is the first actor of Asian descent in nearly 40 years to win in his category, with the last being Haing S. Ngor for his role in “The Killing Fields” in 1985. The actor beat out Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan, who were nominated separately for their roles in “The Banshees of Inisherin,” Brad Pitt for “Babylon,” and Eddie Redmayne for “The Good Nurse.”
Quan’s performance in “Everything Everywhere,” where his kind and hopeful character helps save the multiverse and keep his marriage and family together, has been critically acclaimed. The role is also significant for the actor personally, as it marks his return to acting after more than two decades working behind the camera.
"I'm here 'cause I'm Black," host Jerrod Carmichael said in his opening monologue.
Carmichael called the Hollywood Foreign Press Association a "white organization" and pointed out "they didn’t have a single Black member until George Floyd died."
Jennifer Coolidge said that the cast of "White Lotus'" second season partied harder than their predecessors.
"Oh you know what that’s a toss-up," Coolidge. who is nominated for her first Globe for her role as "Tanya" in the hit series, told E! on the Globes' carpet. "I think the Italians might party harder.”
It's showtime in Beverly Hills at The Beverly Hilton. The 80th Golden Globes Awards have begun.
"Top Gun: Maverick" star and producer Tom Cruise appears to have passed on the red carpet Tuesday, despite the films numerous nominations. It's unclear if he's going to be in attendance for the ceremony.
Cruise's decision to opt-out comes almost two years after Variety reported he returned his Golden Globe trophies to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association over its diversity scandal. He has won three times for his performances in “Born on the Fourth of July,” “Jerry Maguire," and “Magnolia."
The "Top Gun" sequel is nominated for Best Motion Picture — Drama and Best Original Song - Motion Picture. Cruise's co-stars Glen Powell and Jay Ellis were at the show, both doing red carpet interviews before the ceremony.
"Abbott Elementary" star Sheryl Lee Ralph told reporters on the red carpet that she is "very thankful" for her first Golden Globe award nomination.

During her carpet interview, she emphasized the importance of having representation in Hollywood.
"Diversity actually works," she said.
Jenna Ortega, a first-time Golden Globe nominee, has been channeling the iconic “Addams Family” character through her dark and goth-like fashion choices while promoting "Wednesday." But tonight she showed up in a flowy taupe Gucci gown.
When asked about being one of several Latinos nominated for a Golden Globe, she said, “it’s incredible especially because I’ve been doing this for over a decade now. So, I feel like I’ve watched Hollywood gradually open its door and see more Latinos or Latinas in leading roles."
Ortega, 20, could become the youngest person to win a Golden Globe for best performance by an actress in a musical or comedy TV series tonight if she wins.
Fans have noticed a change in actor Austin Butler's voice since the premiere of the Golden Globe nominated film "Elvis."
The actor addressed the comments on the red carpet tonight, telling Laverne Cox that “It’s hard for me to talk about."
"It’s sort of like you’re a kid and you're growing thats why you have to draw lines on the wall," he said. "I can’t really reflect on it too much it’s just this process that I don’t know the difference.”
Butler received his first Golden Globe nomination for his performance as the King of Rock and Roll.
Donald Glover announced on the red carpet that he is making music once again as Childish Gambino.
The actor, writer and rapper has not released an album since 2020 but after prodding by Laverne Cox, admitted that he's been in the studio recently. Glover also said he’s been bringing “secret people” in to work with him.
"But I've just been like, making it for a month right now," Glover admitted. "But soon something will happen. I promise something will happen."
Laverne Cox told "Elvis" star Austin Butler that she watched the film this past the weekend.
But it seems like she might have seen ALL the movies over the weekend — Cox has noticeably told many of the actors she's been interviewing on the E! red carpet tonight that she watched their projects over the weekend.
Someone was busy!
It's a huge night for the Gleeson family. Father and son actors Brendan and Domhnall Gleeson are both nominated for a Golden Globe tonight.

"Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" star Angela Bassett spoke to Laverne Cox on the carpet about the fact that she is the first person to be nominated for acting in a Marvel film.
Bassett, who plays Queen Ramonda, told Cox she was excited and appreciative of the honor. She went on to describe her process whenever she receives a new script.
"This one, it wasn't that difficult," Basset said. "But to find the heart and just live with it so that I own it."
“Orange Is The New Black” co-stars Natasha Lyonne and Laverne Cox reunited at the Golden Globes carpet, where they lamented over how they haven't seen each other in a while.
Lyonne told Cox she was looking “rainproof” in an all black Givenchy dress with rings over her gloves. (it's been raining in L.A. on and off all day)
Lyonne also spilled the beans on her upcoming show “Poker Face” with filmmaker Rian Johnson. She suggested Cox should join the cast.
Actor Henry Golding said he knows several actors have met with producer Barbara Broccoli to discuss the role — he's just not one of them.
"I'd love to be in the Bond universe, not specifically Bond, but let's play in that sandpit," he told Variety on the Globes carpet.
Emma D'Arcy, who is nominated for their performance as Princess Rhaenyra in the "Game of Thrones" prequel "House of the Dragon," talked to E! about their outfit on the Globes carpet.
"Nothing says non-binary like wearing a skirt and trousers," D'Arcy joked, adding that their dark look is channeling "child piano prodigy and maybe the recital is not going well.”
They added that the evening felt surreal.
"When I was starting out, I really felt that I had to pretend to present as a woman in order to find success in this industry ... it wasn't sustainable," they said. "I stopped pretending and, weirdly, it was at that point I got nominated for best actress at the Golden Globes."
"Babylon" star Margot Robbie showed up on the red carpet in a dress perfect for her Barbie herself, and opened up just a little about her role in the upcoming movie.
"There are a lot of looks," she told Variety of the upcoming Greta Gerwig-directed "Barbie" film. "You will not be disappointed."
Actor Letitia Wright told Variety on the Globes red carpet that she believes a third installment of the "Black Panther" franchise is "already in the works." However, she didn't confirm the film was greenlit.
"We need a little bit of a break. We need to regroup and Ryan [Coogler] needs to get back into the lab," Wright, who plays Shuri in the films, said. "So, you know, it's gonna take awhile, but really excited for you guys to see that."
Wright also said she was "really excited but really sad" to take on the Black Panther title following Chadwick Boseman's death in 2020.
"We honor him by just celebrating tonight," she told Variety.
Stephanie Hsu, of “Everything Everywhere All At Once," shared her first reaction to reading the script of the nominated, critically acclaimed film.
"It was the same sensation of what you experience in the film," she told Variety on the Globes carpet. "As crazy as it is, it still somehow makes sense kind of like life, kind of like the complexity of a mother-daughter relationship. It was as wild as it was completely centered and logical."
Daisy Edgar-Jones has returned to the Golden Globes as a nominee, but also a fangirl.
Speaking on E!'s red carpet, Jones told Cox she's currently a big fan of Netflix's "Wednesday" series (which was just renewed for a second season). She also effortlessly tied her Taylor Swift obsession with her nominated movie, "Where the Crawdads Sing."
"Speaking of obsession, I hear you're obsessed with Taylor Swift...What is your favorite era of Taylor Swift?" Cox asked.
"I personally love 'Carolina,' which she did for our film," Jones said. "I think I'm loving her latest stuff for sure."
On the Golden Globes red carpet, nominee and “White Lotus” star F. Murray Abraham told Variety how he reacted to *SPOILER ALERT* the on-screen death of his co-star Jennifer Coolidge’s character Tanya in the “White Lotus” season two finale.
“I really hated it because I love her so much. I mean who doesn’t, right? Everybody loves Tanya, right?" the actor said. "Maybe she’ll come back as a ghost."
Abraham is nominated for best supporting actor — TV movie/limited category.
"I just felt like Cinderella at the ball," Billy Porter told Variety on carpet.
"Just coming out in a way that I never conceived possible. I never thought that I would ever be able to show up just as me and that I would be enough in these spaces."
Eddie Redmayne dressed to impress Laverne Cox, who complimented the actor for his "whimsical" take on the black suit.
Redmayne wore a very large flower, what appeared to be a rosette, on his blazer. He told Cox some people asked if it was handmade but he insisted that it was a beautiful “silk origami number” by Valentino.
Before he moved along, Cox took a moment to share a heartfelt moment with the actor.
"Thank you for your continued support of the trans community, it means the world to me," Cox said.
Redmayne is nominated for best supporting actor in a motion picture for his role in "The Good Nurse."
James Cameron, who is nominated as best director for "Avatar: The Way of Water," which is also nominated for best picture — drama, championed going to the movies on Tuesday.
“We need to go to movie theaters and have that experience," he told Variety on the Golden Globes carpet. "Enough with the streaming already!”
Self-proclaimed "OG Nepo Baby," Jamie Lee Curtis, had "no idea" she was nominated for the same award her mother, Janet Leigh, won in 1961, she told Variety on the carpet.
Leigh won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in “Psycho” in 1961.
We'll see if Curtis can add a second statue in that category to her family's mantle tonight.
"Euphoria" star Colman Domingo added sparkle to the Golden Globes red carpet with a custom Dolce & Gabbana black suit that had him shining head to toe.
“I said I wanted to feel like a Black diamond, shine tonight like a Black diamond,” Domingo told Laverne Cox on the red carpet.

"Everything Everywhere All At Once" star Jamie Lee Curtis spoke to Laverne Cox on E! Tuesday night, describing the film as "a movie about love."
Curtis spoke about her character's many roles in the multiverse film. Diedre is an IRS auditor in some and in other worlds, she is a love interest opposite co-star Michelle Yeoh.
"It's a movie about forgotten people," Curtis said on the carpet. She added later, "Everyday people can be superheroes."
E’s kicking off its awards show now....
Here's what some people on our live blogging team are looking out for this evening.
Kaetlyn Liddy, newsroom coordinator: I’ll be watching Jennifer Coolidge and her “White Lotus” stars closely to see if HBO's second season will match the first in critical acclaim. If it were up to me, Coolidge and Aubrey Plaza would tie for the Globe based on the Twitter content their performances inspired alone.
Matt Lavietes, NBC Out reporter: I’m most excited to see if gay icon Coolidge finally gets the chance to finish the iconic winning speech she attempted to give at the Emmys. I’m also very curious to see how Emma D’Arcy — who uses they/them pronouns — would react if they win the globe for best performance by an actress in a television series, given they do not identify as female.
Claretta Bellamy, NBCBLK News Fellow: I’m rooting for the “Woman King” herself Viola Davis for best performance by an actress in a motion picture — drama, partly because I just read her inspiring book and also because the movie left me in happy tears. I’m also a Black Panther fangirl, so, Wakanda Forever!
Doha Madani, senior breaking news reporter/resident Taylor Swift expert: I’m looking to see whether Swift takes home the globe for best song for “Carolina,” a sign that would place her as a potential front-runner for an Oscar in the coming months. I am also a world-class hater and am rooting for an “Avatar” loss.
Kalhan Rosenblatt, culture & trends reporter/Gaga stan: There are pop stars vying for the best original song award, and there is a pop rivalry in the NBC News newsroom. While Doha is rooting for Swift, I’ll be rooting for Lady Gaga to take home the award for her “Top Gun: Maverick” song “Hold My Hand.” Fun fact: Gaga previously won the award for “Shallow” in 2019 and Swift presented her with the award that year.
Anahita Pardiwalla, social storytelling editor: I'm hoping Rihanna's Golden Globes nomination in the best original song category will inspire her to release new music we’ve all so (im)patiently been waiting for.
Uwa Ede-Osifo, news associate: As a Quinta Brunson stan from her early Buzzfeed days, I’m watching to see if “Abbott Elementary” will continue earning earn more well-deserved accolades.
Daysia Tolentino, culture & trends reporter: I wouldn’t be surprised if fan-favorite “Abbott Elementary” won in the best television series, musical or comedy. But I think the hype for “The Bear” or even “Wednesday” could make it a tough decision.
Crystal Minaya, editorial assistant: I am rooting for Austin Butler who is nominated best actor for his role in “Elvis." Let’s face it: We all fell in love with his glamorous and stunning take on the late singer in the Baz Luhrmann-directed film.
Brahmjot Kaur, NBC Asian America reporter, NBCU Academy Embed: I’m crossing my fingers tight for “Everything Everywhere All at Once” taking home the award for best picture in a musical/comedy! Hot dog fingers, the multiverse and a star-studded cast — what more can you ask for?
Saba Hamedy, culture & trends editor: Awards ceremonies often have their fair share of political moments — sometimes via people’s fashion choices, other times in winners’ speeches. I'm wondering whether we'll see any public support for the people of Iran tonight. The country has been gripped by protests since the Sept. 16 death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died after she was detained by the government’s morality police.
Brendan Fraser is up for his very first Golden Globe tonight, a best actor nomination for his role in Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale." But his dark history with the HFPA will keep him from attending tonight.
Fraser alleges that he was assaulted by HFPA’s former president Philip Berk in the summer of 2003. He detailed the incident in a 2018 GQ interview, saying it made him feel "ill." Berk denied the allegation.
In a subsequent GQ interview last year, Fraser vowed that if he would not attend this year's ceremony even if he was nominated for a Golden Globe.
“I have more history with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association than I have respect for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,” he said.
"The Whale" has been lauded as a tremendous return to film for Fraser, whose portrayal of a 600-pound gay man confined to a wheelchair earned him a six-minute standing ovation the Venice Film Festival in September. The actor was seen crying as he received accolades from his industry peers.
The HFPA voting body didn't nominate any women for the best director category, a move which generated backlash online.
Some of the talented female directors who were snubbed: Sarah Polley ("Women Talking"); Gina Prince-Bythewood ("The Woman King"); Charlotte Wells ("Aftersun"); and Chinonye Chukwu ("Till").
It's not the first time the Globes have been called out for this. Back in 2018, when actor Natalie Portman was presenting the award for best director alongside Ron Howard, she highlighted a similar lack of representation in the list of nominees. Before announcing their names, she said, “And here are the all male nominees."
That same year, Barbra Streisand, who was also presenting, lamented on the the lack of women honored in the category.
“We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for best director," she said. "There are so many films out there that are so good directed by women.”

While many in the LGBTQ world may be rooting for Cate Blanchett to win best actress for her performance as an abrasive conductor in “Tár,” not everyone is happy with it.
Marin Alsop, who was name-checked in “Tár,” said the critically acclaimed film offended her “as a woman ... as a conductor ... as a lesbian.”
NBC Out recently wrote about why Alsop, the world’s best-known female conductor, is displeased with the film.

Many queer eyes are on “Tár” tonight, nominated for best motion picture, best screenplay and best actress.
In particular Cate Blanchett, a lesbian icon, has received critical acclaim for her explosive performance as the fictional conductor Lydia Tár. The unlikeable Tár spends much of the film humiliating students, flirting with younger women and hiding evidence of her wrongdoings.
In case you're in need of a refresher, here's a look at the nominees this year.
On the movies side, Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin," leads the pack of nominees with eight nods. On the TV side, ABC’s breakout sitcom “Abbott Elementary” leads with five nods.
As NBC recently reported, LGBTQ people, both real and fictional, will be front and center at the awards show. And Latinos are represented in about half the award categories in this year’s Golden Globes. Nominees include Selena Gomez, Jenna Ortega, Aubrey Plaza, Diego Calva and others.
The Golden Globes official Twitter account on Monday shared a look at tonight's seating chart.
"Can you spot all the names?" the account wrote in its tweet. Billy Porter, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie were among the printed names in the video.
Turns out it's not always sunny in Los Angeles. Today's forecast is a high of 60 degrees and some rain.
That means you'll see tents covering the red carpet at the The Beverly Hilton, where the Golden Globes ceremony takes place.
“This weather dealt us a hand,” the Globes executive producer and showrunner Dionne Harmon told Variety. “You’ll be enclosed in a big tent, so no one should be worried. They will get out of their car to a dry, warm place.”
Stay dry out there!
For those of you interested in red carpet looks, E! kicks off its coverage at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT on Peacock and E! News channel on YouTube.
The show itself kicks off at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on NBC and will stream simultaneously on Peacock.
Of course, you can also follow along on our live blog as we provide updates on the winners and other big moments.
It seems the Golden Globes will be a star-studded affair once again.
Ahead of Tuesday's ceremony, the HFPA announced a slew of celebs who will attend this year's awards. The list of presenters is almost too long to share in a blog post.
TLDR: You can expect to see some of your favorites on stage presenting and on the red carpet showing off their fabulous attire.
Jerrod Carmichael, who won an Emmy Award last year for his HBO stand-up special “Rothaniel," is taking on the role as this year's host.
Last year, he generated praise for his special, in which he came out. He also created the sitcom “The Carmichael Show,” which ran for three seasons on NBC.
He'll be the first to host since Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took the stage in 2021. Last year’s Globes were not shown live.
Here’s one of the promo clips.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the organization that puts on the Golden Globes, has been intensely criticized in recent years for the lack of racial diversity among its voting members and various ethical concerns.
The organization had no Black voting members, the Los Angeles Times reported last February. The allegations of ethical lapses within the HFPA were detailed by the L.A. Times in its exposé, which got widespread attention in the entertainment industry.
So ... last year, NBC, which has been the longtime TV home of the ceremony, decided not to televise it. The show went on, quietly and without much fanfare. (There wasn't even a red carpet!) Variety described it as "the strangest Golden Globes Ceremony ever," where "not one famous face, top executive or notable publicity rep could be spotted." There was just a small audience in-person, and winners were announced on social media.
In September, HFPA announced it has added 103 new voters to the group that oversees the Globes. Now, according to Variety, "the voting body overall is made up of 200 members that are 52% female and 51.5% “racially and ethnically diverse” with 19.5% Latinx, 12% Asian, 10% Black and 10% Middle Eastern members. The statement says that the voting body also includes individuals who self-identify as LGBTQIA+."
That same month, NBC confirmed the 2023 show will air once again. But the question remains: Will Hollywood embrace it again? It's unclear, but the list of stars set to attend tonight's ceremony is seemingly long. Perhaps longer than initially expected, given that many actors didn't really acknowledge their nominations.Read the full story here.Kaetlyn Liddy, newsroom coordinatorMatt Lavietes, NBC Out reporterClaretta Bellamy, NBCBLK News Fellow:Doha Madani, senior breaking news reporter/resident Taylor Swift expertKalhan Rosenblatt, culture & trends reporter/Gaga stan: Anahita Pardiwalla, social storytelling editorUwa Ede-Osifo, news associateDaysia Tolentinoculture & trends reporterCrystal Minaya, editorial assistant Brahmjot Kaur, NBC Asian America reporter, NBCU Academy EmbedSaba Hamedy, culture & trends editor:
