Ryan Reynolds as Piaget's newest brand ambassador.


No doubt those who will be watching the 73rd Golden Globe Awards on Sunday in person or from the comfort of home will have their cell phones in hand or close by, fingers hovering over their social media apps. Followers will be able to see the behind-the-scenes prep shots posted in real-time, often getting a glimpse of a nominee’s hair, makeup and gown before they even hit the red carpet.

So who are the most-followed Golden Globes nominees?

Surprisingly, it’s a fashionable man, Ryan Reynolds, who leads the pack in both followers and top follower gains from nomination day up until Jan. 5. Ingénue Lily Collins trails by several million followers, but remains the top female on both lists. Tom Ford is also in the top 10, as is that other Tom, Hiddleston (his popularity didn’t suffer after his Taylor Swift romance ended). Interestingly, it’s not all individuals with Instagram accounts. Popular nominated shows “Game of Thrones” and “Stranger Things” also made the list, as did Reynolds’ movie “Deadpool.”
