— Behind The Scenes

The best parts of the Golden Globes are the moments you didn't see on the red carpet

As is always the case with awards shows, the 2017 Golden Globe Awards had plenty going on behind the scenes that the cameras didn’t catch. Of course, we’re still obsessing over certain on-screen moments, like Meryl Streep’s incredibly powerful speech and Emma Stone’s awkwardly endearing “hug fail” (aw!), but sometimes it’s much more fun to relive the moments we didn’t get to see during the three-hour telecast.

Thanks to social media, we can now feel like we got to live every hilarious, glamorous, and exciting moment just like a celeb…all from the comfort of our own couches. Just as celebrities love to post their cute couples’ selfies and bizarre getting ready rituals (lip masks, anyone?!), we love to see them. These are the best moments from the Golden Globes that weren’t shown on your TV screen.

Lily Collins got lost in a sea of couture.

What a dream. Soaking in every moment and savoring the details...

Jessica Biel got a bit tipsy before noon.

So, libations before noon were a bad idea?...#goldenglobespregame

And Drew Barrymore got her mask on, too.

These behind-the-scenes moments seriously make us wish we were at the show. Sigh, maybe next year…right?
