"She heads back to Vegas and I head back to London, but hopefully we'll get a minute together. That would be nice," he said before the ceremony.

"We'll have a few drinks and then we're both out of here early in the morning - 2am or something."

At the end of the night Fassbender was spotted draping his tuxedo jacket over Alicia's shoulders.

Alicia, who is starring in The Danish Girl, recently told Vogue that rumours the pair had split were hurtful.

"I always believed there must be some truth to the stuff you read - but I learned," she said.

Meanwhile, the couple will go head-to-head in the Best Breakthrough Performance category at the National Film Awards in London on March 31.

Alicia has been nominated for Ex-Machina, while Michael received the nod for his performance in Slow West.

Both have been listed for a second gong, with Alicia up for Best Actress in The Danish Girl and Michael for Best Actor in Macbeth.

Elsewhere, Irish director Lenny Abrahamson hit out at critics who said the Irish "lost out" at the Golden Globes.

While Fassbender, Caitriona Balfe, Saoirse Ronan and Emma Donoghue failed to top their categories, Brie Larson won Best Actress for her turn in Irish-Canadian film Room, which Lenny directed.

"An Irish-produced, written and directed film won one," he wrote on Twitter.

"No malice, just ignorance of how this all works and what it means."
