Golden Globes 2018: Here are Hollywood’s Top Party Invites (Updating)

The New Year’s Day hangovers will have barely receded in the rear view mirror when the industry begins celebrating the earliest ever Golden Globes on Jan. 6.

It’s an “out with the old” and “in with the new” year.

The era of the Weinstein party, where Taylor Swift, Katy Perry or Kim Kardashian might float through, is kaput. Meanwhile, the opening of the high-end Waldorf Astoria hotel adjacent to the Beverly Hilton opens up the party playground to new spaces.

Here is a look at the top invites circulating the industry. Updates to come when the industry’s holiday hibernation winds down in January.

AFI Awards Lunch
Four Seasons
Friday, Jan. 5

Expected: Only winners. The AFI names 10 top films and 10 top TV shows of the year for induction in to their almanac, a proverbial hall of fame. It’s a densely packed luncheon where there are only about ten people who are not a major star, director, or studio executive.

Sponsor: Audi

Sponsor: Australian tourism and events agency, Destination NSW.

Lynn Hirschberg’s “It Girl” Luncheon
A.O.C.
Saturday, Jan. 6

Expected:  Historically, attendees have included both Golden Globes nominees and new, emerging talent handpicked by Hirschberg as the next wave of “It Girls” to watch. It’s a sanctuary from the noise of the louder and more heavily trafficked events orbiting the glitzy weekend.

Last year: Before choosing Harvard and launching her “black-ish” spinoff “Grown-ish,” Yara Shahidi kicked around college options with her seat neighbors.

Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominee Brunch

Post Show Parties

HBO
Circa 55 Restaurant and Poolside

Expected: Lots of trophies, especially if “Big Little Lies” repeats its Emmy night dominance. HBO earned 12 nominations, the most of any network.

19th Annual Warner Bros. Pictures and InStyle Golden Globe After-Party
Oasis Courtyard

Expected Talent: All the good ones. This party has a reputation for being glam but not stuffy, and it will bear a significant impact of the disappearance of the Weinstein party. A slice of the InStyle and Weinstein guest lists did not overlap with each other, leaving former Weinstein invitees (who were often less connected to the night’s awards and only attending Weinstein as social guests) as post-show refugees.

Sponsors: Cadillac, eyelove, and L’Oreal Paris.

Fox Post Show Celebration
The Fox Terrace on the Roof Deck

Expected Talent: Between Fox Searchlight (“The Shape of Water,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) and Twentieth Century Fox (“The Post” and “The Showman”), the sister studios have 27 nominations, more than any others on the feature side. With FX’s eight nominations, three for Hulu, and National Geographic in the race, this is going to be a muscular bash.

Warning: “This invitation is absolutely non-transferable,” cautions the elaborately designed invite.

Gifting Suites

HBO Luxury Lounge
Four Seasons
Friday and Saturday, Jan. 5-6
12 p.m.

Expected Talent: HBO’s on-camera talent and influencers.
Gifts and swag from: Ancestry.com, Don Julio Tequila, Logitech, Watch Game, Ciroc Vodka and more.

DPA
Luxe Rodeo Drive
Thursday-Saturday, Jan. 4-6
10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
