Pre-Globes Parties

W Magazine
Chateau Marmont
Thursday, Jan. 7

This is a relatively intimate gathering in the penthouse, where quality outnumbers quantity. Last year, it drew stars such as Aziz Ansari, Sarah Hyland, Johnny Knoxville, and Jessica Chastain. This year, Audi is joining forces with W. Last year, the two went head-to-head on a busy Thursday night, with Audi hosting its own party at nearby Cecconis.

Tom Ortenberg,  Open Road Films, Participant Media, and Anonymous Content have a feast of nominations current (and coming) for director Todd McCarthy’s hit. The true story of the Boston Globe’s investigation of abuse in the Catholic church is the near unanimous choice of Oscar experts for “Best Picture”, per the Gold Derby. Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and company are one of the only films to have its own standalone celebration during Globes weekend, a dinner party sponsored by Ketel One at the frequent awards weekend gathering spot.

Soho House
Friday, Jan. 8

Traditionally, the agency has also hosted a post-Globes party at the Sunset Tower until late.

Film Independent Spirit Awards Filmmaker Grant and Nominee Brunch
Saturday, Jan. 9, 11 a.m.

The Spirit folks own the brunch social scene during awards season, whether getting Boa to serve eggs and potatoes in what may be the restaurant’s only breakfast service of the year, or seven weeks later on the beach, when everyone shows up for the raucous but relaxed Spirit Awards on the day before the Oscars. A pair of notable actors also hand out filmmaker grants.

BAFTA L.A. Awards Tea
Four Seasons
Saturday, Jan. 9, 2 p.m.

Tea and scones fill the menu, but stars from across the spectrum fill the room. BAFTA’s tea is one of the the most unique gatherings of the year. It’s a who’s who of the current awards season contenders in a room with a distinctly British feel.

3Labs, Culver City
Saturday, Jan. 9

This is a ticketed charity event with tables at $25,000 and individual tickets at $5,000. The money goes to the AOE’s mission, which now includes support for the homeless and elder care, expanding beyond the core mission of enriching hospitalized children via hands-on artistic projects with globally renowned artists.

Globes After-Parties Sunday, Jan. 10

Beverly Hilton, Circa 55 and the Pool

Richard Plepler, Michael Lombardo and company have seven nominations to toast. HBO’s ornate approach can be seen in everything from the embroidered hard invitations delivered weeks ago, to red carpet and décor. Stars do take note. Last year, Matthew McConaughey, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Swift, Lorde, Selena Gomez, and Lena Dunham all mashed up and stayed late at the indoor-outdoor space by the pool.

Weinstein and Netflix

Cate Blanchett, Rooney MaraQuentin Tarantino, and his “Hateful Eight” cast members should all perch here. Netflix leads all networks with eight nominations.  This is a great place to preview the cast of upcoming Weinstein projects.

After winning its first Globe last year for “Transparent,” Amazon is now a party player. Its Globes bash follows an Emmy-night party debut in September. Expect to see Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, and Gael Garcia Bernal in the Stardust.

This year,  Tom Ford is working on a “deconstructed lantern” installation for the 17th edition of this party from the fashion magazine and the studio. For several years in a row, DJ Michelle Pesce gets this crowd dancing, including Channing “Magic Mike” Tatum last year.

Chateau Marmont

WME cleverly moves its celebration from the night-before to “night-of,” and relocates to the Chateau Marmont. Fantastic choice.

Recently, post-Globes revelry has been predominantly confined to the Hilton, with outliers like former hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting “the” late night party at the Chateau and another agency party at the Sunset Tower across the street.

AMC is on the sidelines this year. It won’t host a viewing party in the hotel as it did in the past.

Swag and Lounges

This scene is lighter than ever, a trend that seems to be playing out for Sundance 2016 as well.

HBO Luxury Lounge
Four Seasons
Friday, Jan. 8 – Saturday, Jan. 9

More focused on beauty than swag, Marc Jacobs Beauty is giving complimentary manicures and make-up sittings.

DPA Gifting Lounge
Thursday, Jan. 7 – Saturday, Jan. 9
Luxe Hotel Rodeo Drive

Nathalie Dubois’ event has a more serious tone this year. It is dedicated to her brother, Fabrice Dubois, an advertising executive killed at the Bataclan in Paris on November 13.

Post-Globes Dessert
Marie Claire’s Image Makers
Chateau Marmont
Tuesday, Jan.12

Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, Lupita Nyong’o, and Kristen Stewart will honor behind the scenes folks like stylists, hair, and makeup at Marie Claire’s Image Makers of 2016.
