LIVE from the Golden Globes...

Written by: Ashley Crawley

...or as live as we could have been watching the telecast on NBC from the comfort of my couch - stretchy pants on, feet up, wine poured, giddy to see our favorite Outlander stars included among Hollywood's finest!

Did you miss last night's Golden Globes? Have no fear, we've got you covered!   

All night, we brought you every glam-drenched moment of the three-hour (well, SEVEN if you count the all-important red carpet pre-coverage) broadcast with particularly biased attention paid to our little Scottish show that could.

Now let's get to the magic...



[4:02 pm] Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! It's finally here.  What did your day look like? Today's Golden Globes prep for us involved an early wake up, my three-year old son styling my hair, a Philly cheesesteak and yoga pants.  Wonder if Cait, Sam and the gang's looked the same? Hmm, guess not.

[4:07 pm] Also, while on the phone with the male associate at Michaels on the hunt for an extra Outlander coloring book for tonight's party, "Um, I have it, I think. Is there a lady and a dude on the cover? He's, um, shirtless?" Yep, seems right.

[4:24 pm] This is an endurance sport, Outlander fans, so hang with us! E! is airing red carpet coverage, but our A-list stars won't be walking the red carpet until 6 p.m. or later.

[4:50 pm] Getting back to Anne's awesome post, any guesses as to what color Caitriona will wear? My friends here say black, I'm going a lovely green (wink wink, Ireland).

[4:55 pm] Folks, our leading man is battling illness.  Apparently even that body can be riddled with fever.  Here's hoping some champagne does the trick!

[5:05 pm] We love the Outlander SoCal gals! According to the AP....
In the uncovered bleachers, a group of about 40 fans of the TV series "Outlander" gathered — a few in costume — to catch a glimpse and root for the cast and crew of the Starz series.

"We apologize in advance if we're loud and obnoxious," said Leona Barad told to the rest of the crowd in the bleachers.

Barad coordinated with dozens of other "Outlander" fans on Facebook for the group to sit among the audience overlooking the awards show entrance. When cameras from E! panned across the crowd, they screamed "OUTLANDER!" in unison.

[5:20 pm] Brace yourself, folks - they're in the car! Mama bear, Papa Bear and the fabulous Maril Davis are en route to the Golden Globes.
[5:35 pm] These folks.  Accountants all dolled up, smirking with all the answers to who wins. They know. They knoooooooooow.

[5:55 pm] Our leading lady has arrived.  Stay tuned for a red carpet photo...
[6:00 pm] E! Online has done a changing of the Golden Globes guard - Ross Matthews out, Ryan Seacrest in.

[6:05 pm] After a four-year break, Ricky Gervais is back as host.  I will miss the magical duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (who fantastically held their own for three years), but am excited to see what controversial funnies the pint-toting Gervais will serve up.

[6:17 pm] In case you hadn't seen, our power trio of Outlander creators is looking mighty snazzy tonight!

[6:23] So Ross Matthews isn't really gone, and we're glad... because he just gave a wonderful shout out to Caitriona Balfe, and to Outlander fans for their frenzied enthusiasm on Twitter and in the bleachers.  He is just as giddily anxious as us to see what Caitriona will wear.  Again, thank you SoCal!

[6:35 pm] Apparently green is a hit this year since several stars have shown up in jewel tones. Special kudos though to our favorite E! correspondent and die-hard Outlander fan, Kristin Dos Santos, for wearing green for all the right reasons.

[6:40 pm] Outlander SoCal - you do us proud.  Apparently you're screwing with the E! live feed audio with your shouts of "Out-lan-der", and we're perfectly okay with that.

[7:00 pm] Well hello, beauties.  It's a shame these two can't get it together.

[7:10 pm] Caption this photo below.  There might be a prize involved for the favorite.

[7:24] Not to be outdone, the lovely Tobias Menzies looks... well, lovely. 

[7:30 pm] Strong, his selfie game is. Mmm.


[7:40] We're hearing that Caitriona Balfe's dress is by Alexander McQueen. Whoever it is, it's working. What do you think?

[8:00 pm] :::Shifts from E! to NBC::: Time for the main event, folks!


[8:18 pm] We're two awards down: Kate Winslett, Best Supporting Actress in a Drama (Steve Jobs) and Maura Tierney, Best Supporting Actress in a TV Drama (Showtime's The Affair, a fantastic show IMHO).

[8:20 pm] For those craning their necks to find our Outlander folks, most TV shows are seated on the second level - the rowdy level.

[8:27 pm] Awards update: Rachel Bloom, Best Supporting Actress in a TV Comedy or Musical (My Crazy Ex Girlfriend) and Best TV Comedy or Musical goes to Mozart in the Jungle. Coincidentally, that's my next TV binge so I'm glad to know it'll be time well spent.

[8:30 pm] In case you aren't watching, we have the Honest Toddler blog to thank for aptly summing it up, "Ricky Gervais seems like the only person there not on powerful sedatives."

[8:40 pm] Awards update: Wolf Hall wins Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and Oscar Isaac won Best Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries for Show Me A Hero.

[8:50 pm] Well, damn. That's as eloquently as we can sum up Christian Slater (Mr. Robot) winning Best Supporting Actor over our dashing Tobias Menzies.  

[9:00 pm] Tobias, you're always a winner to us - all day, every day and twice on Golden Globes Sunday.

[9:10 pm] Congrats, friends - we've made it halfway! We're in a mid-show Outlander lag, so we'll just put this here.  Slainte!

[9:20 pm] So, this just happened.  Way to go, champ! I smell a script for Rocky 7: Rocky Crowned a Globe coming our way.

[9:34 pm] Commercial break! Time to refill wine... err, I mean catch you up on the winners: Jon Hamm, Best Actor in a TV Drama (Mad Men), Matt Damon, Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical (The Martian), Aaron Sorkin, Best Screenplay Motion Picture (Steve Jobs), Inside Out for Best Animated Motion Picture, Gael Garcia Bernal for Best Actor in a TV Comedy or Musical (Mozart in the Jungle).

[9:45 pm] Oh, FOR SURE. Make us proud! (Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg telling the TV folks in the back to keep it down.)


[9:59 pm] Mr. Robot for the win (Best TV Drama).  Chin up, Outlander lovers - a nomination alone does WONDERS for the show.  Here's to next year!

[10:10 pm] They say adult coloring books are the best new form of therapy.  We dove right in.

[10:17 pm] Getting sleepy? Time for a gratuitous eye candy break! Sam landed on E!'s list of Best Dressed Men at the Golden Globes. We know, shocker. 

[10:30 pm] Sigh. Here's to being nominated for a Golden Globe for a show in its freshman season after only 5 or 6 acting credits to your name.  You and your million-watt smile are gold to us, Caitriona.

[10:42 pm] Also, all of our bantering about Caitriona's killer style landed us a step-by-step style guide from folks associated with her hair stylist.  No, seriously. If you want to know how to get your hair like hers, comment below and we'll share. 

[10:53 pm] Awards update (other than that one, it who must not be named) - The Martian for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, Matt Damon for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy (The Martian), Jennifer Lawrence for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy (Joy), Brie Larson for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama (Room), and Leonard DiCaprio for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama (The Revenant).

[10:58 pm] Up next, Han Solo Indiana Jones Harrison Ford - annnnnnd, we're going into overtime!

[11:00 pm] Not to be outdone in the style game, Caitriona makes New York Times' list of Best Dressed Women in Black. Baffling, right?

[11:02 pm] The Revenant wins Best Motion Picture Drama.

[11:03 pm] That's a wrap for us, Outlander lovers.  Here's hoping Sam gets sloshed enough to skip his workout tomorrow.  Thanks so much for spending your evening with us.  Don't go to bed disappointed... go to bed knowing we're one day closer to Season 2 premiering. Je suis prest!

After Show Bonus!

[11:03 am] We might have gone to bed, but our stars partied into the wee hours... even donning a wardrobe change for the InStyle After Party!

[2:00 pm] Did anyone wake up in still in the red carpet glow of seeing our gorgeous stars decked out? If you didn't, change your tune.  This should help.

    1. ME. NEITHER. My friends are convinced she's going to wear black because she always does. Not me. I like your Irish green theory. Her skin radiates color.

  3. The nominations are so well deserved. I wish Sam had gotten a nomination, but I believe they submitted "The Garrison Commander" for consideration and that featured Cait and Tobias. It will be nice to see them all dressed up and basking in the glow of the event. To be nominated is such an honor but to win would be spectacular.

    1. I agree. They've come out of anonymity by jut being nominated. That's awesome. Actually, they don't have to submit episodes for nomination considerations, different than the Emmys process. Now that the show has notice, Sam's time is surely coming!

  4. OK...so 1:30 p.m.PT/4:30 p.m. ET and Red Carpet Pre-Show -- Ross Matthews, Brad Goreski, Guiliana Rancic. Not bad. I do like Brad. He as a great aesthetic for some of his young up and coming clients. Ross just makes me laugh. Good crew. Now bring on the stars! Sam, Cait WHERE ARE YOU???? Checking Sam's Twitter now!

  5. Bummer that Sam is sick. Surprised he isn't drinking whisky instead of champagne. Whisky is WAY more medicinal!

  13. Tobias is definitely the most handsome of his fellow nominees. Ah, well. I wish he would have won but he'll be guaranteed work as an actor for quite a while. He's already one of the busier of all the cast members. Love him... and will see a bit of him next season, too... No worries Tobias. You're #1 for all of the Outlander Fandom.

  14. I would shout "Robbed!", but I haven't seen Mr. Robot, yet (on the list).

    So I'll just whisper.

    "Tobias was robbed."

  15. NOT HAPPY to lose in the Best TV Drama Category to Mr. Robot AND miss our chance to see the whole Outlander Crew up on stage. Boo.

  17. Thanks for the updates! No channels are showing the Golden Globes here in Australia except for pay TV (cable, not worth it for the money you have to pay, for me anyway) so have been relying on you guys for results

  18. Well, darn. Cait loses to Cookie. BLAH!!! But, have to remember that before Outlander, Caitriona had only a few acting credits. She is well on her way and it's amazing she and the Show were nominated. Our show is just beginning. The only place we and the rest of the cast and crew have to go is UP!!!! Je Suis Prest!

  19. Oh, yes, that slicked back low pony is working tonight with Cait's frothy dress. Love!!!!! But, what do I do to get her face??? :)
