He made In-N-Out the “in” venue on Golden Globes night.
While the stars were celebrating after the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles, Paul Giamatti went straight to In-N-Out to celebrate.
Star of “The Holdovers” – from He won Best Actor in a Comedy – He was spotted in his tuxedo at In-N-Out Burger in Westwood, California, with a Golden Globe on the table amid orders of burgers and fries after leaving the press room at the Beverly Hilton.
When Giamatti arrived, people applauded, we heard.
The star was photographed by a fan who commented on a shot of the Globes winner at the popular Los Angeles joint, “Going to Westwood In-N-Out with a Golden Globe is crazy.”
A source exclusively told Page Six that Giamatti was at the fast food restaurant with his girlfriend, Clara Wong, as well as his manager, agent, and publicist.
A source familiar with the star said: “They went for a celebratory meal… He's a big fan of In-N-Out, and it was a great way to celebrate before the gigs.”
“People applauded when he walked in… It was near UCLA, so there were a lot of college students,” the insider said.
But the crowd of students “respectfully waited until he finished eating, and then asked him for pictures.”
We heard that Giamatti and his crew ordered six of the classic “Double Double” burgers, the place's famous double burger.
“They finished in the press room” and headed straight to In-N-Out, the source said.
But spies also told Page Six that Giamatti attended some upscale restaurants after his win.
He was later spotted at two parties in Beverly Hills, held by his agency, UTA, as well as Hollywood studio NBCUniversal.
“The Holdovers” was released by NBCUniversal's Focus Features and the original studio He had a lot to celebrate Christopher Nolan's epic “Oppenheimer” also dominated the Globes.
At the NBCUniversal party at Tommy's Beverly Hills, Nolan and his partner Emma Thomas were seen walking around the three Golden Globe Awards, where guests also included Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt and Jack Quaid, the studio head's Donna. Langley, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, Blunt's husband John Krasinski, and The Holdovers director Alexander Payne.
Blunt was seen hugging Giamatti tightly. The duo starred together in Disney's “Jungle Cruise” in 2021.
At La Dolce Vita in Beverly Hills, Giamatti was at a party thrown by UTA — which celebrated nearly 60 Golden Globe nominees and winners, including “Barbie” creators Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, “Succession” star Matthew Macfadyen, and “Anatomy of “Autumn” is directed by Justine Tritt and “May December” producer Will Ferrell.
The Golden Globes scene was smaller this year The awards tried to bounce backAnd Hollywood is holding its breath.
But fewer parties meant a greater concentration of stars at the parties that ended, with Netflix, NBCUniversal, Billboard and Moët & Chandon hosting parties.
Also on Sunday, we heard CAA had an intimate affair at Chateau Marmont, and Jennifer Lawrence, Margot Robbie, Julianne Moore, and more were seen heading to the famous hotel after the awards.
The Billboard party was inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel. One of its main attractions as the Globes' official afterparty was that the winners got to have their awards engraved, making for a star-studded spectacle.
At Netflix party, cute couple Bill Hader and Ali Wong sat together (Page Six exclusively reported that it was an item from 2022.)
Controversial comedian Dave Chappelle — who was not nominated for an award in the new stand-up comedy category at the Globes — attended the Netflix ceremony anyway, and was seen mingling with studio boss Ted Sarandos and rocker Lenny Kravitz.
Also in attendance were Kevin Costner, Jason Segel, Elizabeth Debicki, Jon Batiste, Colman Domingo, Jon Hamm and more.
Back in the day — when the Golden Globes were sponsored by the now-defunct Hollywood Foreign Press Association — there were so many afterparties at the Beverly Hilton alone, it was difficult for guests to rush out to attend them all before then. The night is over.
HBO, Amazon, Fox and NBCUniversal will also celebrate at the hotel that hosted the awards with high-profile parties (as the Weinstein Company did before its dramatic downfall).
This was in addition to the agency's parties around the city, and the night's host usually also had their own VIP relationship.
Although if this year's disastrous gala director, Joe Koy, hosts a party, it might be a one-person party – judging by the room's reaction during the show.
