Bradley Cooper & his Russian supermodel girlfriend Irina Shayk are the star couple of this blog post and the red carpet even though Bradley got snubbed in both the acting and directing categories for "A Star is Born" at last night's Golden Globe Awards. The film only earned one award for Best Original Song for "Shallow."

Taylor Swift surprised everyone presenting that category with People's Sexiest Man Alive, Idris Elba. Here's a GIF of them walking on stage together that US Weekly tweeted:

By the way, Idris is performing at Coachella this year as a DJ! He tweeted this reminder:

In other Idris news, his daughter Isan was Miss Golden Globe 2019!

Taylor was there to support her British actor boyfriend, Joe Alwyn whose movie "The Favourite" was nominated.

Lady Gaga accepted the Best Original Song award with Mark Ronson in a big blue dress that matched her hair. Greg thought it looked like Carol Burnett's curtain gown from the old "Gone with the Wind" skit on "The Carol Burnett Show." Carol was absolutely funny and brilliant accepting the inaugural Carol Burnett Lifetime Achievement Award in Television and was unapologetically frank about network television, saying her show "couldn't be done today." She said the major networks would never pay for all the people her variety show took to produce for 11 years.

If I had to pick the award for Best Dressed, it would be Kaley Cuocco. Her dress and hair were effortless and on point. E! News tweeted a pic during the show:

Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh did a decent job hosting even if you couldn't hear them over the rowdy crowd sometimes as the evening rolled on and the champagne flowed!  The onstage chemistry between Best Screenplay presenters and SNL alums Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph had some people thinking they could make good Oscar hosts. The Academy is still hiring!

Actresses Glenn Close and Regina King both had empowering speeches encouraging women to pursue their dreams. Glenn Close got a standing ovation and Regina King vowed to hire "50% women" for all the projects she produces over the next two years. The show was definitely worth staying up for this year!

Can't wait for the Oscar nominations to be announced Tuesday, January 22, 2019! Award show season has officially begun!
