Season of schmoozing and boozing kicks off
Published 11/01/2016 | 02:30
And they're off! More than 7,500 glasses of Moët were drained, 30,000 square feet of red carpet trampled on, and hundreds of designer frocks photographed during the course of the 73rd Golden Globes.
The winners and losers may be waking up with sore heads this afternoon but they will have to galvanise themselves for even more schmoozing and boozing as awards season continues apace.
The Globes act as a very glamorous starting pistol with runners and riders jumping on a PR carousel of photocalls, Champagne receptions, roundtables and TV interviews before the Oscars come calling. Make no mistake, surviving La-La Land's awards season takes plenty of stamina.
