Golden Globes: What we saw at the HBO afterparty

Tina Fey (jokingly) declared that she and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are not friends during the Golden Globes monologue—and Louis-Dreyfus responded by looking very puzzled.

It’s not because she didn’t like the joke, though: “I didn’t even hear what they said, which is why I looked sort of confused,” the actress, who’s been involved in some Poehler-Fey shenanigans at previous awards shows, said at Sunday’s HBO afterparty. But she thought the parts she did hear were “superb” and “A-plus-plus.”

Louis-Dreyfus spent some time chatting with Lena Dunham at the party, where Taylor Swift made a quick appearance with pals Lorde and Selena Gomez by her side. Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan, who was at one point stopped by Katie Holmes for a hug, was also in attendance—and hungry.

If you're Taylor Swift, you have a garden birthday party with Lorde -- PHOTOS

For Taylor Swift, the perfect 24th birthday party included flowers, red balloons, and a “Royal” friend.

Lorde attended the Australian garden party (a quick trip from the singer’s native New Zealand), and Swift shared a handful of photos from her big day on Instagram, letting fans in on the classy-but-fun soiree.

Emmys 2013: Party report! Inside scoop from the Governors Ball, HBO more

After the party is the after party! We hit the best bashes in town to find out what the stars were up to after winning (… or not winning) those golden trophies.

First up, the Governors Ball at the L.A. Convention Center:


On the scene: Ian Somerhalder, Ginnifer Goodwin, Anna Camp, and more at EW's Comic-Con party

To cap off a long weekend of vampires, zombies, and things catching fire, Entertainment Weekly transformed the fourth floor of San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel for its annual Comic-Con bash. The party, held at the hotel’s rooftop lounge FLOAT, brought together stars like Joe Manganiello, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Ian Somerhalder for a comic book-themed celebration complete with bold graphics, colorful candy stations, and a dazzling pool filled with thousands of ping pongs because…why not?

“To be honest, [the best thing about Comic-Con] is staying out late…and seeing my friends,” explained actress, web series master, and Comic-Con vet Felicia Day. “This is like our summer camp. The EW party is always the crowning jewel, let’s be honest.”

After the Oscars: Stars celebrate at Governors Ball, InStyle party, and more

Once the Oscars had all been handed out, it was time to party in Hollywood. EW made the rounds last night at the Governors Ball and other events around town. Read to find out who was partying into the wee hours!

Immediately following the Oscar ceremony, stars flocked upstairs to the Governors Ball. Catered for the last 19 years by Wolfgang Puck, stars ate delicacies like smoked salmon and caviar on Oscar-shaped crackers, chicken pot pie with black truffles, and chocolate soufflé with espresso ice. Attendees were treated to the sounds of crooner and pianist Michael Feinstein, who played Broadway and movie classics – quite in keeping with the music theme of the ceremony itself.

Around the room, celebs hobnobbed and drank champagne. Les Miserables Best Actor nominee Hugh Jackman and his wife sat near the stage with his family, in from Australia for the occasion. Said Jackman of being on stage earlier in the night: “It was an unbelievably fun experience to perform at the Oscars — and so much more relaxing not to have to host.”

What are the hottest parties at the RNC?

The Democrats may have a more party-hardy reputation than the Republicans, but that doesn’t mean the right isn’t planning to get down with some celebs this week. Speaking from experience (I covered both conventions in 2008), I’d like to note that regardless of the celebrity special guest performing — be it Will.i.am or Willie Nelson — convention parties are pretty boring compared to Oscar parties or SXSW parties, or even say, your niece’s third birthday party. Most of the attendees at the DNC and RNC alike are delegates in uncomfortable suits, dancing uncomfortably to some band they’ve never heard of.

But I’m not that blasé — it can be exciting to catch John McCain shaking it up to Big & Rich or Jon Voight getting down with Kid Rock. So if you’re at all curious about what’s going down when the sun goes down in Tampa, here’s a list of the musical and entertainment acts scheduled to appear during the RNC. If you’re planning a trip to Tampa, however, don’t expect to get in – most of these events are for donors and range from hundreds to thousands for a ticket.

'8': On the scene at the new, star-studded Broadway play by Dustin Lance Black

For one night only, the stars turned out on Broadway last night to stage a reading of 8, the new dramatization — directed by Joe Mantello and penned by Dustin Lance Black, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Milk — of Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, the landmark 2010 trial that led the Federal Court to rule Proposition 8 unconstitutional. To say that the night’s cast was star-studded is an understatement; performers included Morgan Freeman, Rob Reiner, John Lithgow, Bradley Whitford, Ellen Barkin, Cheyenne Jackson, Matt Bomer, and Christine Lahti, among many other big names.

A crowd of celebrities, theater lovers, and LGBT rights supporters packed into the small but historic Eugene O’Neill Theater. On the way to find my seat, I spotted Barbara Walters, Jeffrey Toobin, and Fran Drescher, with gay ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson in tow. Amid set pieces for The Book of Mormon, which is currently in engagement at the Eugene O’Neill, the stage was set simply with director’s chairs arranged Inherit the Wind-style to represent a courtroom. The performers walked onstage to thunderous applause READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries tie the knot. Did you hear?!

Today marked the biggest event of the year. No, I’m not talking about the Super Bowl. Or the Oscars. I’m not even talking about the Royal Wedding. I’m referring, of course, to the nuptials involving America’s version of a Royal Family, the Kardashians. Who needs a dashing prince and his demure bride when you’ve got a former sex tape star and her boyfriend of less than a year? That’s the American way! Today, before family and friends (including Demi Lovato, Eva Longoria, Lindsay Lohan, and more) — and, of course, E!’s cameras — Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries finally said their “I dos,” satisfying a tabloid-obsessed nation hungry for another derrière to examine since Pippa Middleton walked the aisle in April. We’ll have to wait until Oct. 9 to watch the proceedings ourselves — and see if Bruce Jenner convinced the deejay to spin some tunes from “Can’t Stop the Music” (please!) — but, until then, let’s just all think about the fact that Kardashian and Humphries will make more money posing for one photo than we’ll ever collect in one lifetime. Say it with me Keeping Up with the Kardashians executive producer Ryan Seacrest: “Oh, hell no. Say what?

'Bridesmaids' poll: What is your favorite wedding movie?

It’s tradition for a bride to wear something borrowed and something blue on her wedding day. Bridesmaids, the R-rated Kristin Wiig vehicle about a bachelorette party gone wild that opens May 13, borrows more from the boys’ Hangover than its more feminine matrimonial predecessors, and its “blue” could refer to black-and-blues inflicted at Melissa McCarthy’s Female Fight Club.

But there have been many great wedding movies, probably because no two weddings are alike: different venue, different best-man speech, different DJ, different great-aunt who’s frisky. READ FULL STORY
