…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…
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.
[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!Here it is…! Moment #BestFansEver make @goldenglobes realize there’s a gathering happening…. #unstoppable pic.twitter.com/TFyhFXTynY

[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.
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!
