GLOBE-ARAMA! STARS ROLLICKED THEIR WAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND'S SLEW OF ENDLESS PARTIES.
LOS ANGELES -- They don't call it Hollywood's biggest party for nothing.
With eight post-Golden Globe parties in the Beverly Hilton Hotel (not to mention hundreds of gawking guests), the prime celebrity-sighting location was -- where else? -- in the hallway. Katie Couric and Tracey Ullman whooped it up outside the Miramax party.
"We're just having a regular girls' night out," giggled Couric.
Inside, Debra Messing, Marisa Tomei, Kate Beckinsale, Audrey Tautou, Sting, Kevin Spacey and Christina Ricci mingled, while Sissy Spacek and her husband, Jack Fisk, ignored all the well-wishers and munched on a huge plate of cocktail shrimp. Harvey Weinstein was his usual boisterous self, despite "Amelie" and "In the Bedroom" losing in the foreign film and drama categories -- not to mention the recent meltdown of Talk.
The Universal/Dreamworks party, however, proved to be the evening's power bash, with Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson and Kate Winslet holding court at one banquette. At another, Russell Crowe schmoozed with Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, while Thora Birch chatted up Josh Hartnett and Jeremy Irons at the bar.
At the Warner Brothers/In Style party, Steven Tyler arrived, dripping in Loree Rodkin diamonds, and danced around the likes of Jennifer Garner, James Woods, Sela Ward, Sarah Wynter and Allison Janney.
As for the pre-Golden Globes parties held over the weekend, Vanity Fair's party at the home of Mike and Irina Medavoy was hands down the hottest ticket in town.
"Helllooooooo, Mr. Moneybucks!" cooed Irina at Larry King as she greeted the CNN talk show host, who recently renegotiated his contract.
Even the Medavoy's gargantuan home couldn't hold the 900 guests. So partygoers like Spacek, Tom Wilkinson and Tilda Swinton crowded into the backyard tent where Dennis Quaid and the Sharks played a late night set. In the Medavoys' plush art-filled living room, Sting and Enya held court separately, surrounded by Carrie Fisher, Bruce Wagner and Lasse Hallstrom.
"People are actually sipping champagne from little bottles with straws!" observed Sir Ian McKellen as he surveyed the crowd. "And that way," he devised, "I guess you don't get Cosmopolitan stains on your clothing."
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
