Stars from film and television have arrived for the Golden Globes ceremony, heating up the red carpet under sunny skies but crisp temperatures.
Hayden Panettiere of Nashville, Ariel Winter of Modern Family and TV personalities Nicole Ritchie and Kelly Osbourne were all spotted walking near heat lamps set up to warm the celebrities.
The Globes are in a rare place this season, coming after the Academy Award nominations, which were announced earlier than usual and threw out some shocks that have left the Globes show a little less relevant.
Key Globe contenders lined up largely as expected, with Steven Spielberg's Civil War saga Lincoln leading with seven nominations and two CIA thrillers - Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty and Ben Affleck's Argo - also doing well.
All three films earned Globe nominations for best drama and director. Yet while Lincoln, Argo and Zero Dark Thirty grabbed best-picture slots at Thursday's Oscar nominations, Bigelow and Affleck were snubbed for directing honours after a season that had seen them in the running for almost every other major award.
The Globe and Oscar directing fields typically match up closely. This time, though, only Spielberg and Life of Pi director Ang Lee have nominations for both.
