5:58 p.m. Hey folks, Slezak here to live-blog E!’s Golden Globes red-carpet coverage with Ryan Seacrest. I hope you’re able to juggle your remote, your keyboard, and a frosty beverage. Let the comments-fest begin!
5:59 p.m. Only one minute till red-carpet coverage begins! If E!’s cameras capture Jennifer Hudson and Vanessa L. Williams together in the same frame, will a pair of angels descend on a puffy cloud and whisk me off to heaven?
6:01 p.m. Seacrest asks guys in the crowd to make catcalls at Heroes‘ Ali Larter. Way to make a girl feel special.
6:03 p.m. Giuliana DiPandi shows her unique ability to segue: "Speaking of creamsicles, Zach Braff!"
6:04 p.m. Mr. Braff demands to know why he’s been minimized while E!’s cameras zero in on Heroes‘ Hayden Panettiere. "You’ve got to find her and do something to her!" he says, admitting he’s never watched his network’s breakout freshman hit.
6:06 p.m. It’s fashion commentator Jay Manuel (of America’s Next Top Model fame), who appears to have raided the costume closet from Interview with the Vampire!
6:07 p.m. Manuel declares that no one does vintage like Reese Witherspoon. Except Natalie Portman. And, oh, J.Lo. And also, that Cate Blanchett will "definitely, probably" wear vintage tonight. And that "old is the new new." How much do you think blondie’s getting paid?
6:10 p.m. And our first nominee for Most Hostile Red-Carpet Moment goes to John Stamos, who dubs E!’s glam cam as a "crotch cam," asks Seacrest "Are you hitting on me?," then ends the chat with the observation, "You work very hard for $20 million a year." Ouch!
6:16 p.m. IT’S A WILHELMINA SLAAAYTAAAAAHHH SIGHTING!
6:18 p.m. Seacrest asks presenter (!) David Spade "What’s the buzz on the Golden Globes?" His answer is pretty much, "No idea."
6:23 p.m. Masi Oka (lookin superfly) says "lots of questions will be answered" on Heroes this month. Did he just dis Lost?
6:24 p.m. Vanessa L. Williams just hijacked Oka’s interview with her giant hair and giant fabulousness. And yet it only took her 60 minutes more than Oka to get ready. Impressive!
6:26 p.m. Did Ryan just gesture at her when he said "Globes"?
6:31 p.m. Our second nominee for Most Hostile Red-Carpet Moment: Ryan asks Sienna Miller if she’s "easy," then spits on her. (Accidentally, but still…)
6:33 p.m. Giuliana uses her interview with Aaron Eckhart to basically ask if Katie Holmes is a freak. And he deflects like a total gentleman!
6:36 p.m. Seacrest asks Little Miss Sunshine‘s Abigail Breslin which stars she’s looking forward to seeing. Being all of 10 years old, she responds by excitedly showing off the hidden mirror in her purse. Damn you, biological clock!
6:40 p.m. Julia Louis-Dreyfus names Judi Dench and Helen Mirren "most likely to misbehave" while drinking at the Globes. She totally read our cover story this week.
6:45 p.m. Tina Fey (gorgeous!) explains the secret to good podium banter: "Be quick and get out." God, let’s hope all her co-presenters are listening.
6:46 p.m. OMG! Justin and Cameron’s people have asked Globes reps to make sure they arrive at separate times. I so totally do not care!
6:47 p.m. Giuliana continues her fascinating string of questions, asking Rainn Wilson if he has a middle name.
