C’mon, you love a celebrity couple. There’s just something irresistible about two immensely talented and genetically blessed people coming together—especially during a highly-publicized event. Because while it’s easy to think stars, they’re just like us! when you come across a paparazzi shot of them walking their dog, the Golden Globes (and any awards show, really) is a reminder that they’re not.
Take Bill Hader and Rachel Bilson, who, after spending the holidays together, sent Twitter into a tizzy with their official red carpet debut (she in a Brock Collection gown and he in a tuxedo). Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix stepped out in sustainable ensembles, and Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach reminded everyone they’ve both got beauty and brains. Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons also made a rare appearance together. “We’re treating this as parents’ night out because tomorrow we’re going to New Zealand,” Dunst told E!.
And that’s just the red carpet! Beyoncé and Jay-Z skipped the step-and-repeat but made a splash inside the ceremony—where it’s said they brought their own champagne. Sadly not photographed, but joyfully spotted were Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn, who sat together during the awards and attended the CAA After Party at the Sunset Tower together.)
Below, 12 celebrity couples who turned the Golden Globes into the ultimate date night.
