BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Despite cameras everywhere, not every superstar moment makes the broadcast of the Golden Globes.
Here's a look at the happenings inside the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom that you didn't see on TV.
COMMERCIAL SOCIALIZING: The ballroom isn't as big as it appears on TV, and most of the A-listers are crammed into a small space right in front of the stage. That makes it easy for stars to schmooze during commercial breaks.
With a red carpet dyed black by actresses dressed in a color-coordinated statement, the Golden Globes were transformed into an A-list expression of female empowerment in the post-Harvey Weinstein era. Oprah Winfrey led the charge.
"For too long women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men," said Winfrey, accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. "But their time is up. Their time is up!"
List of winners for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, announced Sunday by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association:
